You folks remember Paul Teutal Jr., right? The man formerly associated with Orange County Choppers is a household name in the aftermarket scene, and while he’s now detached himself with the company he co-founded, Paul Jr. still knows what it to takes to build an awesome custom project.
So Paul Jr. opted to leave the choppers in the shed and took the challenge of customizing a Chevrolet Camaro. Together with the folks of Trans American Muscle, Paul Jr. Designs built a really ill program for the American muscle car.
The custom sheet metal paneling comes as no surprise given Paul Jr.’s background. The program also has a custom hot rod black paint in matte finish and copper with matching Paul Jr. Designs emblems on it. There are also custom door sills, copper numbering badges, aircraft rivets, and a new set of 22" Ritorno Forgiato Wheels.
Far be it for Paul Jr. to modify the Camaro’s exterior and interior, he certainly didn’t leave behind the muscle car’s engine credentials. The conversion kit comes with a whole lot of modifications, highlighted by a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger fitted to the muscle car’s LS3 V8, SLP sub-frame connectors and exhaust featuring an X-Pipe. No mention of how much increased output was done to the Camaro, but knowing Paul Jr. and Trans American Muscle’s reputations, we expect nothing less than a mouthful of added ponies.
The latter will build 77 of these bad boys, each coming with an aircraft-style and aerospace theme. But before it hits Domani Motor Cars as an exclusive model, this custom-tuned Camaro made an appearance at the 2012 Daytona Bike Week, which ran from October 9th - October 18th.
