Meet the Chevrolet Performance Fleet - 1970 Camaro - 2017 HOT ROD Power Tour

Tags

The HOT ROD Power Tour is in its 23rd year and attracts hot rods and classic cars from all over the country to participate in a 1-week, 7-city road trip. Included in that group every year is Chevrolet Performance who bring out several of what they call “Fleet Vehicles” to participate in the tour. These hand-selected cars run the entire tour, which, this year, began in Kansas City, Missouri and ends in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This weeklong road trip puts these vehicles to the ultimate test and allows HOT ROD Power Tour attendees to get an up-close and personal look at these cars and trucks, which are dressed in the latest and greatest accessories and performance parts that Chevrolet Performance offers.

Each vehicle showcases the manufacturer’s latest technologies, and this 1970 split bumper Camaro is one of the most technologically advanced vehicles built in the fleet thanks to its brutishly powerful and sophisticated Chevrolet Performance LT4 engine. The 6.2L V8 LT4 engine cranks out an über impressive 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque (Wet Sump P/N 19332621). How does a small block ring out that kind of power? Well, the roots-style supercharger atop the intake doesn’t hurt, but neither does advanced technologies like Direct Injection. Each of these work harmoniously together to ring out every bit of power possible while also being extremely efficient. Read more about Chevrolet Performance’s LT4 crate engine here.

Chevrolet Performance mated the LT4 to the venerable T56 Super Magnum 6-speed manual transmission. Continuing with the modern flare, is Hyper Blue Metallic exterior paint borrowed from the Gen 6 Camaro and a new front grille that pays homage to its sixth-gen counterpart. This, alongside a refinished interior, has made for an impressive example from the second generation of Camaros. Take a look below for a laundry list of goodies that culminate into one fine 1970 Chevrolet Camaro.
