This spectacular 1967 Camaro''s street days might be over, but I''m not so sure I want to tell it that. With a 547-inch Merlin under the hood, it''ll run reliable 8.90s at 150 MPH and has all the supporting hardware to make it safe and totally reliable. If that''s your kind of fun, then there aren''t many nicer early Camaros in which to do it. Hugger Orange isn''t exactly subtle, but the build totally respects the purity of the first Camaro. Aside from the tall cowl-induction hood and the professionally stretched quarter panels, this one neatly avoids the identity crisis that often strikes full-race pieces. The lightweight front end bodywork is held to the tube chassis underneath by Dzus fasteners, so access is excellent and quick. However, it''s not totally uncivilized, as the doors still open and close with reassuring solidity, and the paint quality is quite good. Proper SS stripes rake along the car''s spine and even the custom rear wing has been painted to match in Hugger Orange. Lightweight windows are another reason it''s so darned quick, and any car with wheelie bars and a parachute out back had better carry serious blasting powder under the hood or risk being laughed out of the paddock on race night. An RS grille up front gives it a great finished look without the weight of actual headlights, and even the bumpers are flyweight fiberglass facsimiles only painted to look like chrome. Inside, it''s a take-no-prisoners environment with seating for one. An NHRA-approved cage surrounds the whole passenger compartment, although the down-bars make it easy to climb into the lightweight racing seat, which is also upholstered to match the bodywork. A fabricated aluminum dash features all the equipment you need for eight seconds of fury, from a full set of Auto Meter gauges to basic toggle switches for the fuel system, ignition, and cooling fans. The steering wheel is removable for easy access, and the shifter for the race-prepped PowerGlide is at your fingertips. More beautiful sheetmetal work in back to cover the back-halved chassis and giant slicks. And while there''s technically a trunk, it''s full of fuel cell, twin fuel pumps, and a pair of Optimas for quick starting. The specs on the engine are impressive, but you''ll really need to call us to get them all. It''s a Merlin block stuffed full of Eagle rotating parts and 14:1 Ross pistons. It measures 547 cubic inches and definitely needs the deep-breathing abilities of the AFR heads, Edelbrock intake, and 1050 CFM Demon carb. Comp Cams supplied the solid lifter roller cam (cam card included), and with those open headers, you''d better believe that firing this sucker up is like releasing the devil himself. A fresh PowerGlide transmission features a Hughes 4500 RPM stall torque converter and the custom Dana 60 rear axle is full of 4.30 gears that get this thing on the cam in a hurry. The front suspension has been thoroughly lightened and the rear is a pretty conventional ladder bar setup with coil-overs. Wilwood supplied a disc rake for each corner, and all the tires are brand new and ready to race. This is a car for experienced drivers, not a guy looking to go fast on a whim. But if you''re the guy who knows what 850 horsepower can do, this car will impress you in a very big way. Call now! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
