East Bay Muscle Cars was named Hot Rod Magazine Top Ten Trendsetter at 2012 SEMA show and they continue to be a leader in cutting edge design and technology. East Bay Muscle Cars, or EBMC for short, will be bringing an exquisite example of a Pro-Touring inspired 1967 Chevy Camaro, nicknamed Snowblind after the PPG Honda White paint, to the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

At first glance Snowblind looks like one of many 1967 Camaro restomods that can be seen across the country. However, EBMC believes that the parts you don’t see are just as important as the parts you do see. Snowblind is a perfect example of this statement, because after a closer look it becomes apparent this isn’t the average customized 1967 Camaro. Essentially, the only part of this car that is factory Chevrolet is the car’s unibody platform. Both the front and rear subframes have been swapped out for Art Morrison units including a triangulated 4-link 9” Ford live-axle housing.

Body modifications include a Custom fabricated front valance and front fenders with EBMC air induction to aid engine cooling and provide fresh air to a pair of K&N air filters. Very little of the stock 1967 Camaro body was left untouched. EMBC even re-contoured the A-pillars and drip rails, as well as lowered the rear quarter panels down 2” towards wheel openings for a sleeker look. A custom fabricated rear valance, custom integrated rear spoiler, and custom built rear bumper tidy up Snowblind’s backside. EBMC installed 1968 Chevy Camaro doors to eliminate the factory vent wing windows. Even more modifications are hidden under the carbon fiber heat extractor hood.

Pop the hood and a Turnkey Engine Supply Chevy LS3 engine with twin turbochargers will stare you in the face. Additional performance mods under the hood include EBMC custom Stainless steel headers, EBMC induction system and water to air intercoolers. East Bay Muscle Cars left no stone unturned when it came to Snowblind. Mounted to the custom carbon fiber inner wheel wells are EBMC fabricated power steering fluid and coolant reservoirs. You won’t find any junk in the truck at the other end of the car. Under the deck lid with integrated spoiler, hides DSE minitubs to allow 325 mm wide rear tires.

Power is transferred from the massive twin turbo LS3 via a T56 Magnum transmission and ram dual disc clutch connected to an Inland Empire Driveline custom 3.5” aluminum driveshaft. Forward thrust meets the pavement via Rushforth wheels. Wrapping the 18x10 fronts, and 19x12 rears, are 285/35-18 and 325/30-19 Nitto Tires. Because the faster a car goes, the more power it needs to stop, EBMC installed Wilwood 14” slotted and vented brake rotors in the front and rear of Snowblind. 6-piston front and 4-piston rear, Superlight calipers paired with a Wilwood pedal assembly provides the clamping force needed to slow this ‘67 Camaro to a complete stop.
