Take A Full Tour Of Joe Rogan’s 850 HP 1969 Chevy Camaro Restomod

Take A Full Tour Of Joe Rogan’s 850 HP 1969 Chevy Camaro Restomod

In November last year, Roadster Shop completed work on a custom 1969 Chevrolet Camaro for comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan. It has now released a video that gives us a comprehensive tour of the car and as far as restomod Camaro’s come, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that is more impressive than this.

Rogan’s Camaro is a classic SS variant and was originally painted black with white racing stripes. It also had a 427-cubic inch V8 but after Roadster Shop was done with it, the car now shares very little in common with its former self.

Speaking about the car, the shop says that Rogan wanted the car to retain its classic 1969 Camaro looks without being over-the-top. The visual alterations started at the front end where a new bumper and chin spoiler were hand-fabricated. There is also a one-off carbon fiber hood and a set of large monoblock HRE wheels finished in matte black.

Roadster Shop has also deleted the car’s original door handles and replaced them with more subtle handles and latches from a C6 Corvette. There are also new billet-aluminum side gills that replace the factory units. The alterations continue at the rear with a custom rear spoiler that is similar to the original but is slightly larger and splits into three when the trunk is opened.

The original engine was also removed and has been replaced with a modified GM LSA V8 crate engine that now pumps out approximately 850 hp thanks to the larger supercharger. This engine is mated to a Bowler T-56 Magnum XL manual transmission powering the rear wheels.

During this video, we also learn that the car has an all-new chassis that radically improves the responsiveness of the steering and overhauls the way it rides thanks to the fitment of adjustable Fox shocks and new sway bars.
