Tuesday’s Obscure Car of the Day

04 Aug

Today’s Car is a resurrection from the Muscle Car Archives. The 1969 Baldwin-Motion 540 Camaro SuperCoupe is built by Time Machines, Inc. in Hudson, FL.

The car features hand-crafted steel body, a front/mid aluminum big-block 540, fully tubbed and incorporates a proprietary 2×3-inch tubular steel backbone/spine chassis running through the console and welded to the body resulting is an incredibly rigid platform, engineered for maximum performance.

The exterior features flared fender wells, widened rear fenders with functional brake cooling scoops and a extended hood inspired by the L88’s. The body is highlighted by traditional Baldwin-Motion badgeing and striping.

Under the hood an all-aluminum 700-hp Merlin/Motion big-block built by Bill Mitchel residesl. The blueprinted and dyno-tuned 540-cubic-inch powerplant has a World Products aluminum block with 4.50-inch bore, 4.25-inch stroke and 4.840-inch bore spacing. Eagle 6.535-inch H-beam rods, forged crank and 10-to-1 forged pistons are utilized. The roller-cammed engine is topped off with a Cross-Ram fuel injection system

To plant the power a specially-prepared Tremec TKO five-speed and a fully-independent rear with a Dana 44 Posi and hardened steel high-torque axles are used. Suspension is four-wheel independent with polished unequal length control arms and toe-in control links and fully adjustable coil-over shocks and sway bars. Steering is rack and pinion.
