We frequently come across incredible custom automotive projects that can make us doubt reality. However, I must say that in the last few months, all I’ve seen have been modest restorations and restomods; hence, it’s been a while since I’ve laid eyes on something as insane as this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro.
When we discuss a 1969 Camaro, we’re discussing the final year of the first generation’s production. It is a much loved variant of the pony vehicle that frequently passes by custom garages and emerges from the interaction with a completely different appearance.
In the case of this Chevy the custom garage’s name is Weaver Customs, a crew based in Utah and known for the SEMA builds it made over the years. The build you’re looking at was not made for SEMA, but was shown for the first time back in 2014 at the Detroit Autorama.
The vehicle you are currently viewing is dubbed Bad Company, and it goes beyond what we previously believed a bespoke Camaro could be. The reason is instantly apparent as there is no roof on the object. It appears to be devoid of a roof, rather than being convertible with one hidden elsewhere.
The ride appears extremely aggressive because the top portion is missing, and the substantial body stretching, expanding, shortening, and lowering adds to the overall low, mean, and insane vibe.
The original Camaro bodywork was widened by 12 inches (30 cm) at the rear and eight inches (20 cm) at the front, while being shortened by three inches (eight cm) overall.
The all-steel roadster achieved this way was then propped on a Z06 suspension system that meets the asphalt courtesy of Forgeline RB3C wheels wearing in Nitto Invo tires. The same Z06 is responsible for the powertrain that powers the Bad Company, meaning an LS6 engine supercharged by Magnuson gear and working through a T56 6-speed manual transmission.
Unless you’re looking down at its waistline, of course, the interior of the Camaro is all black leather, with a custom-made steel center console and a Kicker sound system that includes a heads-up display.
For individuals who frequently attend custom car shows, The Bad Company is a highly recognized brand. It won numerous accolades from the moment of its debut in Detroit, including the Best Radical Custom Convertible, a Grand Marshall Award at Hot August Nights, and the 2015 Goodguys Builder’s Choice Award.
