Introducing, a new project car that we are keeping tabs on….the 1969 Chevy Camaro being done by none other than Darryl Redd. That name might sound familiar because he’s the father of Concept One Pulley System’s co-founders, Kevin and Randy Redd.
Darryl has been around cars his whole life. In 1980 when his boys were still young, the family owned a full-service Amoco station in Cumming, Georgia. Kevin and Randy were pumping gas before they could drive a car.
The station eventually turned into a Goodyear Tire & Service and in 1991 Darryl and his wife Jean opened American Classics Restoration, specializing in Corvettes. One of many special cars that they restored was a rare 1955 Corvette that earned several NCRS Top Flight awards and Bloomington Gold Awards and eventually the coveted Duntov Award.
Even thought Darryl eventually transitioned his shop over to Kevin and Randy to start Concept One Pulley Systems he never stopped restoring cars. His current project is one we are keeping a close eye on.
It’s a 1969 Chevy Camaro pro-touring car. It is still a ways from completion, but here are a few sneak peaks.
Check out that paint job…its Switchblade Silver with ghost stripes that almost disappear in the right light.
And here is what’s in store for under that paint job…
- LS3 engine with a Magnuson Supercharger
- 6-speed manual transmission
- Heidts front suspension, 4-link rear suspension
- Currie 9” Ford rear end
- Fesler wheels (8” front and 12” rear)
- Wilwood Brake System
- Custom interior
Follow along with us as we watch the progress of this car. We are looking forward to seeing it on the show circuit!
