When the Camaro was introduced in 1967, racing was very much a part of its DNA, especially the Z28, which was directly pointed at the SCCA Trans-Am racing series. It's no wonder that the Camaro would be called into battle in a host of other series over the years, racing in everything from NASCAR and NHRA to even its own IROC series. The 1969 Camaro offered here is the result of a professional high-end build and is ready to light the strip on fire. Modifications began with a narrowed 9-inch rear end to accommodate the tubbed Centerline wheels with Hoosier street slicks, along with a 4-link coil-over rear suspension. As part of the build process, a full roll cage was welded in and a custom fiberglass hood was added. The Camaro was then sent to the paint booth, where it was swathed in House of Kolor Candy Blue Pearl paint. Balancing the car, a fuel cell was added to the trunk, as well as the relocated Optima battery. Attention was then placed upon the heart of the build—a GM 468 CI monster gobbling up air through a massive Holley 4-barrel carb, lit with an MSD ignition and exhaling through a set of Hedman headers. Transmitting the rotational torque to the slicks is a modified Turbo 400 transmission with a 3,500 stall converter and transbrake, and shifted via a Hurst unit. Strange axles and disc brakes (with a front line lock) round out the package.
The custom gray interior of this beast features racing buckets, RJS four-point harnesses and roll cage padding. Autometer gauges relay pertinent engine information, including a 10,000 RPM tachometer and water temperature and oil pressure gauges. There’s even a cup holder, ensuring your frosty beverage is ready after you cross the finish line.
