Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Chevrolet Camaro Retrokits

If by some miracle you find the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro too modern for your tastes, Lingenfelter has a solution. Behold the company's new Retrokits packages; full aesthetic workovers designed to give the Chevrolet a few tweaks from the '69 RS playbook. Those include an entirely new front fascia, complete with a chin spoiler and the buyer's choice of either exposed headlamps or hidden RS-style units. Lingenfelter swapped the original wheels for pieces designed to invoke the rally pieces found on the original '69. From where we sit, we're not sure the look is an improvement, and the stick-on chrome dress-up for the rear quarter gills certainly don't do the machine any favors.

Camaro owners may buy the Retrokits package for installation by a local body shop or have Lingenfelter do the work in house. Prices start at $6,850, not including the man-hours to bolt the bits in place. Ask Lingenfelter to paint and install, and you'll be looking at a sticker of around $8,550. Zing.

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
- Wiring harness assembly

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

Camaro owners can purchase the Retrokits separately for installation by a local body shop, or they can turn their car over to the experts at Lingenfelter to receive a turnkey package complete with paint and other desired upgrades, like the LPE 800 horsepower turbocharged LS7 Camaro L28 engine and performance package.

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.
