Our friends at RideTech have once again partnered with Barrett-Jackson to bring another exciting 48 Hour Build to this week’s WestWorld event in Scottsdale, AZ. In conjunction with a team of partnering manufacturers, RideTech is spearheading the transformation of a 1971 Camaro into a Pro-Touring masterpiece in 48 hours. The project will be completed over the course of eight 6-hour days.

After the build is complete, the 48 Hour Camaro will go on a two-year journey, driving, racing, and being shown across the U.S. at national events. The Camaro will feature a Lingenfelter Performance Engineering LS3 engine, Holley Terminator EFI, MSD ignition and Hooker stainless steel headers along with a special Bowler 4L75E transmission featuring Sonnax Level 3 upgrades. The 48 Hour Camaro will also include Baer brakes, Forgeline wheels, BFGoodrich Rival S tires, Vintage Air air conditioning custom Classic Instruments gauges, and a Kicker stereo.

The suspension will consist of RideTech StrongArm control arms and Tru Turn steering up front with RideTech’s new “unicradle” design Bolt-On 4-Link rear suspension. The Currie Enterprises Crate 9″ rear end assembly will feature a trick MillerBuilt floater axle conversion. RideTech TQ Series triple adjustable coilovers will be used all around.

Summit Racing Equipment has provided a wide range of parts to complete the project.
