While many first-generation Camaro models are badged as “RS” or “SS” on the front fenders, Troy Schindler’s reads “LS.” It’s a nod to the fact the sleek black car is a restomod build. A Chevrolet Performance LS376/480 crate engine* serves as its centerpiece.

The engine is based on the standard 6.2L LS3,* but utilizes a racing-inspired LS Hot Cam to help make 495 horsepower and 473 lb.-ft. of torque.

The engine in Schindler’s 1967 Camaro is part of a factory-matched Connect & Cruise Crate Powertrain System, with a Super Magnum six-speed manual transmission backing the power plant.

“I love the horsepower and it’s a plug-and-play setup,” Schindler says of the Connect & Cruise package. “It comes from GM already dyno’d and tuned, so it’s pretty easy. You don't have to fight with anything. I’m really happy with it. The performance is awesome.”

The car features a new chassis built by Gary Forster of Gary’s Chassis, along with many other modern and custom elements.

Schindler and his son, Camryn, hail from Great Falls, Montana, and were attending the Goodguys Speedway Motors Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona, with the car last fall.

The Camaro known as “Black Haze” looks good on its own, but the desert mountains added a picturesque landscape when we spoke with the Schindlers. Now, a couple of our favorite shots of the car in Scottsdale are Wallpaper Wednesday downloads. High-resolution desktop and mobile images are below.
