Default Lokar 69 Camaro by Goolsby Customs

Goolsby Customs is proud to announce we have begun the build for Lokar on their 69 Camaro convertible to debut at Sema 2012. We are extremely honored and privileged to be chosen to build a car for such a great company with a tremendous reputation, and look foward to working with many great friends/partners on this project and creating something pretty special.

The talent pool of Ben Hemance was once again tapped to put some ideas on paper and he of course knocked it out of the park once again.


Lokar came down and brought us what turned out to be the nicest 1st gen we have probably ever seen ....

From the start of this build we knew we wanted to turn to our friends and those "all around great guys" at the Roadster Shop for another one of ther Fast Track Chassis. We have been using several of their frames lately and we have always said how great they were but when we got this chassis in I must say they do build them low, strong ,and fast




More to come tomorrow ,Thanks everyone

Wow cool build, I can't believe I read 2 posts in a row with unreal shells to start with? Where are people finding these things

Does that chassis require the complete floor cut out or how does it install?

This car is unreal but I dont know the story on where it came from exactly
The chsssis only requires minimal cuts to the floor, about the size cut you would make for sub-frame connectors and then a hole under the rear seat for the lower four link mounts, and lastly remove the rear sub-frame rails, I will post pics of that shortly

Tyler ,thanks we appreciate it....Now get off the computer and get to work on that ford
As far as the motor we had a Mast Ls3 535hp here for a second gen bird we are building ( build thread coming soon) but that customer wants more so that motor will now be going in the Lokar Camaro, so that worked out great
