Lingenfelter’s Retrokit Camaro

Lingenfelter, who are well known for their high horsepower Corvettes have decided to tackle a retro style Camaro. The kit takes a new Camaro and bolts on body pieces to make it resemble a 1969 model. I hate to tell them the retro thing is kind of over. The PT Cruiser is dead, the new Beetle has moved on, the Mustang gets a complete redesign for 2014 etc. It’s just over and I think this kit puts the final nail in the coffin. If you want a 1969 Camaro, go buy one. They are out there, and very nice examples can be had much cheaper than a new Camaro. In fact, decent examples can be had for about the same price as Lingenfelter’s Retrokit, which will run you nearly 7k before installation.

If this Retrokit is your sort of thing, and I hope it isn’t, you’ll get a front fascia, side skirts, wheels, lower spoiler, head light covers, hardware, and wiring. I’ve put the press release fromLingenfelter after the jump if you want more info.

TURN YOUR NEW CAMARO INTO A RETRO MUSCLE CAR WITH LINGENFELTER RETROKITS PACKAGE

DECATUR, Ind. – Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) offers Retrokits Camaro body design packages designed to give the new 2010-2012 Chevrolet Camaro an authentic 1969 muscle car look.

“Many Camaro fans were disappointed when the design of the fifth gen Camaro didn’t look as much as the ’69 Camaro as, say, the new Mustang looked like the original,” said Owner Ken Lingenfelter. “With our Retrokits package, enthusiasts can have the best of both worlds – the technology of today paired with the muscle car styling of the past.”

Lingenfelter’s Retrokits package includes a 1969-style non-RS system front fascia or an RS system front fascia with hideaway headlights.

The non-RS system includes:
– Front fascia
– Lower spoiler
– Standard chrome bumper
– Grille assembly with SS badge
– Two headlight assemblies
– Two lower running light assemblies
– All required mounting brackets

The RS system includes:
– Front fascia
– Lower spoiler
– Standard chrome bumper
– Grille assembly with SS badge

The non-RS system kit prices not installed in $6,850, while the price when installed and painted by LPE is $8,550. The RS system kit not installed is $8,150, and the installed price is $9,750.
