A rollcage, sidepipes, and fenders flared enough for some wide-by-huge steamroller-style wheel and tire packages, all combined onto an early second gen Camaro makes for a lot of potential fun. This one looks like it can be a riot…the look is a blend of IMSA and Trans-Am flavors with a hint of the Gumball Rally Camaro, the running gear is a 383 small-block and a TH350 that are barely broken in, and a pile of parts await upon purchase, including a second set of wheels and tires, a quick change rear, and the original front bumper.
Wait, it’s only a small-block underhood? Actually…I’m kind of ok with that, so long as that little Mouse motor can climb the tach like a NASCAR racer trying to earn back positions at the Daytona 500. Combined with looks that all but promise that the local law enforcement is going to have a word with you, all I can see this Camaro being is a riot. Some paint would be a nice touch, though…maybe a Baldwin-Motion Phase III style stripe setup? Nah…not until the car runs at least in the elevens at the strip. Maybe a replica of Dick Brown’s #86 Camaro would be more appropriate?
