Sonny Chiba would be proud — this sequel to GMP’s Street Fighter ’68 Camaro is even more of a brawler than the original. This one is based on GMP’s ’69 Camaro casting, and the added style of the newer body is augmented by SS style hockey-stick fender graphics. Those graphics also highlight the biggest mechanical change: the departure of the burly 383 to make room for a brutal 572 big block. As before, custom wheel and trim manufacturer Billet Specialties lends name and expertise to the rolling stock and steering wheel, giving this car an authenticity unmatched among customized diecast. All of it is rendered with GMP’s customary exemplary craftsmanship. Not since the Godfather has a sequel held up this well against the original (Sorry Mr. Chiba!) Click here for more.
