Muscle Car on Powerblock on Spike

Hey guys,

I don't know if anyone else watches Powerblock on Spike but on Muscle Car today the guys picked up a base model 307 69 Camaro and are tearing it down to turn it into a COPO ZL1 using the 50th anniversary Chevy 427 ZL1 Crate Engine.

Thought I might give you guys a heads up. They didn't do too much today. They just removed the the badging, the trims and bumperettes.

This build will probably take a few weeks to complete should be interesting.

I'd love to get a hold of a decent 1st Gen Camaro to tinker with. Maybe some day.

If you guys haven't been watching (they took a few week break) tune back in. The COPO tribute has been sprayed and on this weeks (which will replay Sunday Morning) they started working on the interior and showcased a vintage Z/28.

It's getting close to finished. I gotta believe they're in the home stretch.

They haven't put the engine in the car yet have they? I'll have to check it out tomorrow morning.
In this area, it's shown the same time on Saturdays and Sundays.
This morning, They fixed the grill, recovered the seats , and switched the steering column to one for a floor shift car.

No they haven't dropped the engine in yet. They did a mock run a few episodes ago just to test fitment.

Today you were correct they fixed the grill and showed how to fix he interior seats. I think next week they might be dropping the engine in for real. Besides the window dressings on the interior that's really all that they have left to do.

Next week...
MuscleCar gets to plug in the stock-style interior for their 1969 COPO Camaro tribute project. Then Tommy shows how to address one of the more often neglected parts of a restoration: the inside of the trunk. Then it's exhaust from headers to tailpipes as the guys help the Camaro exhale.
