About 700,000 Camaros were built from 1967 to 1969. The first-generation Camaro has won a die-hard following and has become an iconic performance car. Camaros in excellent condition command very high prices, so many owners are compelled to perform a professional-grade original restoration. Since these cars are about 40 years old, many cars need second or third restorations, and as time goes by, these cars will continue to appreciate and require restoration. That's where How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969comes in. While some owners can afford to pay shops to perform a 100-point restoration for show car competition, many owners want to perform a faithful, detailed restoration themselves, so the car maintains its collector value and use it as a fun weekend driver. This book will serve those owners. A lead title in our Restoration Series, How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969will provide in-depth, hands-on information and photography for restoring these popular and historically significant cars. It covers all aspects of restoration, including engines and drivelines, bodywork, interior and trim, suspension, brakes, chassis, and steering for the first-generation Camaros. Organization and planning will be covered, so restorers can stay on task. Disassembly, inspection, and sourcing the best parts will also be covered. This volume will deliver a concise and revealing overview of each subject area and shows the most critical aspects of the restoration process with sequential step-by-step photos and detailed captions. The most efficient techniques and best products for returning each component to like-new condition will be covered. With this information, owners will be able to determine what's involved in each step of the restoration and decide whether to perform the work themselves or outsource it to a professional shop. Color step-by-step how-to information on Camaro restoration has never been offered in a package like this before. Finally, Camaro owners have the book they need.

Jeep, Dana and Chrysler Differentials

How to Rebuild the 8-1/4, 8-3/4, Dana 44 and 60 and AMC 20

Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock car, drag racing, and other forms of racing, making history in the process. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles. In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Sure-Grip, and AMC Jeep axles has never been published before, and Mopar, Jeep and AMC enthusiasts are hungry for this information. The Dana and AMC axles should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore there will be a consistent demand for this information. This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.

When the Camaro was introduced in 1967 as an answer to the wildly popular Mustang and the "pony car" category it created, the Chevrolet response proved to be very popular in its own right. Of course, every successful act needs an encore, and what followed was the second-generation Camaro, produced from early 1970 until 1981. The new model was a dramatic departure from its predecessor, with a body style and features that evolved steadily over its 12-year production run. From the early years featuring LT1 engines, a multitude of performance packages and dramatic euro styling, to the later years when comfort replaced performance in many aspects, the second-generation Camaro remains extremely popular today. Whether you have an SS, Z/28, Rally Sport, Type LT, Sport Coupe, or Berlinetta, The Definitive Camaro Guide: 1970-1981 showcases the various cosmetic, interior, powertrain, and chassis changes that occurred on all models through the years. Heavily illustrated, the book features more than 450 images detailing the correct parts and accessories your Camaro had when new. Author Jason Scott is an expert on this marque. This guide will help enthusiasts authentically restore their second-generation Camaro. After stumbling out of the gate with a late-model-year release, the second-generation Camaro outsold its predecessor two to one. With the prices of first-generation Camaros escalating rapidly, the second-generation cars have become very popular. More important, little literature can be found in the market to help owners of second-generation Camaros correctly identify parts and components for their cars. This benchmark book will be a must-have for 1970-1981 Camaro owners wanting to correctly bring their car back to original specification.

Originally a term coined for GM cars, the term Pro Touring has come to mean a style of all cars, and many eras.

You can do this in many ways and choose from many suppliers. Detroit Speed is at the forefront of the Pro Touring movement. Both a parts manufacturer and car builder, the company is in a unique position not only to design and manufacture parts, but to build cars and test the parts for their effectiveness on the street and track. Kyle and Stacy Tucker have put their considerable skill in engineering and market savvy to create a unique company to lead the Pro Touring movement. Not only do you learn about the history of the company and how they design their performance parts, install sections cover front sub-frame assemblies, rear suspension assemblies, wheel tubs, fuel system upgrades, brake upgrades, driveline upgrades including an LS swap, cooling system upgrades, and more. The featured cars are customer builds as well as DSE test cars, which include a host of different Chevrolet products, a 1966 Mustang and a 1969 Charger. Detroit Speed’s How to Build a Pro Touring Car is a vital edition to every performance enthusiast’s library.

In the mid-1960s, Ford Motor Company took the automotive world by storm with the release of its new pony car, the Ford Mustang. It was the right car for the right time, and it caught General Motors a bit by surprise. One year later, after seeing the Mustang's enormous sales success, General Motors announced the development of its own pony-car platform, code-named "Panther," to enter the market and compete with the tremendously popular Mustang. And what a competition it became. Chevrolet Camaros and Pontiac Firebirds hit the market in the fall of 1966, and the world clamored for more of these new Mustang killers. Over the course of time, these F-Body cars became some of the most popular enthusiast cars of all time. In The Definitive Firebird & Trans Am Guide 1967–1981, Pontiac expert and historian Rocky Rotella examines each production year of Firebird. Production figures, option codes, running changes, model year changes and variances, rarity, collectability, interviews with engineers, and more are thoroughly covered in what is sure to be the ultimate Firebird reference book for years to come. Complementing the detail and year-by-year analysis is a combination of archival photography from the launch of these cars and beautiful color photos of original and restored examples today. Whether you are into the first generation of F-Body Pontiacs, the first Trans Ams in 1969, the early second-generation Super Duty cars, or even the wildly popular Trans Ams from the Smokey and the Bandit era, this book tells the entire story of these immensely popular cars. It is an excellent addition to any pony car, muscle car, or any enthusiast’s library.
