When a car looks this authentic, and underneath it has been upgraded to be an even better racer, then this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Race Car is the awesome kind of tribute that can run circles around the original. So dig into all the details, because the look is pure nostalgia, but the 700+ horsepower motor is a pure racetrack hero.
If you're going to have a Camaro racecar, the best place to start is by giving it the look of the legendary Mark Donohue Camaro. This has an inspired style .....
everywhere from the yellow Penske livery (including hood pinstriping) to the black vinyl roof. It even has the right speedy details, like the yellow Howe racing wheels, hood pins, a large front splitter, the cowl hood, and a full rear spoiler. This is a pure racecar intended for track use, but it also makes sure to show off the right classic style. There's a look of quality where the deep blue paint helps to highlight the straight sheet metal. And the chrome bumpers even shine with distinction.
The interior is pure competition-grade components. It's stripped of nearly all its excess weight and replaced with bright white bareness. The upgrades are track-worthy with a full cage, reinforced rockers, ignition switch box, fire suppression system, and a modern racing seat with a harness. The setup even gets the details right with the fuel cell mounted low in the trunk and the battery set in the center for ideal weight distribution. The large AccuTech readouts, proper toggle switches, large shift lights, and detachable steering wheel on a Sweet collapsible steering column all have a professional-level feel. There's even an air conditioning system for the driver's helmet.
The engine is what makes this racer so special, and so it's put on a proper tidy display. This is a Donovan aluminum big block is a healthy 500ci. It is enhanced and fortified further with a Callies crank, JE domed pistons, Oliver Racing rods, Comp Cams roller camshaft, GM aluminum heads, a Dart intake, and topped with a Holley 850 CFM four-barrel carburetor. It also has the right supporting pieces, like a dual MSD ignition system, Jones Racing drive system, a custom dry sump pump, and a large Griffin aluminum radiator with electric fan. Long tube headers add power as they directly feed the side exhaust. So this one has serious power and has the bark to tell everyone it's not for the timid. The Jerrico four-speed manual transmission keeps you in firm control of the motor, and it includes a 7.25-inch Quartermaster clutch and Quartermaster hydraulic throwout bearing. This feeds an aluminum driveshaft on its way to the Winters Performance 9-inch floater rear with locker. The suspension has been upgraded with Bilstein shocks, a Coleman three-piece sway bar, watts link rear, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records and restoration photos that show the detailed construction of this true racer. This is the awesome Camaro racer that really lets you make the most of a track day. Call today!!! (This vehicle does not come with a title. Bill of sale only. Not street legal.)
