VIDEO: MAHLE Aftermarket and Petty’s Garage Highlight ‘68 Resto-mod Camaro Build

MAHLE Aftermarket and the team at Petty’s Garage in Level Cross, North Carolina have launched a new series of online videos highlighting the build of a 1968 resto-mod Chevy Camaro. The custom-built, one-of-a-kind Camaro is the grand prize in MAHLE’s Drive with the Original promotion.

The video series, featured on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, documents the journey of a rare 1968 Camaro with Rally Sport option as it arrives at Petty’s Garage. The car was towed from a field in Martinsville, Virginia, less than 100 miles from the Petty facility in Level Cross, North Carolina. The series highlights the extensive restoration process, all the way through to its completion in time for the Oct. 30-Nov. 1 AAPEX show in Vegas.

Short videos with quick highlights of the build provide the viewer with a glimpse of the Petty’s Garage team as they work through the restoration process. Longer, documentary-style videos in the series offer a more in-depth look at the build, featuring interviews with MAHLE and Petty’s Garage experts. Richard Petty also makes several appearances throughout the video series.

“The evolution of this build was something we had to capture on film—there was no doubt in my mind when I saw what the Camaro looked like coming in from Martinsville,” said Jon Douglas, president of MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. “To watch the process unfold over the past several months has been absolutely astonishing. And we are very excited to have produced this video series so that we could share the highlights with everyone.”
