How To Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969

About 700,000 Camaros were built from 1967 to 1969. The first-generation Camaro has won a die-hard following and has become an iconic performance car. Camaros in excellent condition command very high prices, so many owners are compelled to perform a professional-grade original restoration. Since these cars are about 40 years old, many cars need second or third restorations, and as time goes by, these cars will continue to appreciate and require restoration. That’s where How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969 comes in. While some owners can afford to pay shops to perform a 100-point restoration for show car competition, many owners want to perform a faithful, detailed restoration themselves, so the car maintains its collector value and use it as a fun weekend driver. This book will serve those owners.

How To Restore Your Mustang 1964-1/2 – 1973

How to Restore Your Mustang 1964-1/2 – 1973 is a hands-on how-to guide for restoring your first-generation Mustang. Enthusiast owners are shown how to turn a Mustang in need of restoration into a brilliant automotive jewel.

It provides all the relevant challenges, expenses, drawbacks, and benefits a restorer will encounter, so the owner/restorer can decide whether to do the restoration work on their own or have it professionally done.

The latest techniques and best restoration products for each system are revealed and discussed. It also provides the considerations for using replacement parts versus repairing the original parts. And it specifies how to make sensible upgrades that improve safety, performance, and convenience while not adversely affecting collector value. This book takes restoration instruction to a whole new level by providing comprehensive and insightful step-by-step instruction for many of the most important procedures of a restoration.With 160 pages & 400 colour photos.
