One look at the big air grabber on top of the hood, seriously meaty rear tires, and big rear wing, and you know this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Drag Car is a quarter-mile king. So dig into all the details on this slick big block coupe that has a full competition-ready package wrapped around an iconic classic.
The sleek design of the first-year Camaro RS is popular with all levels of the custom street machine crowd. But the true key to this one is its full commitment to the racecar lifestyle. The Camaro was already considered a great car for giving big power to the light weight, but this has been upgraded to a full fiberglass front end. The Weld-style racing wheels showcase the skinny tire front and massive rear rubber setup. You’ve also got a full Plexiglas window setup, a massive rear spoiler, and a professional-style wheelie bar. And of course, the massive air scoop popping out of the hood is the true sign this one means business. And when a car is this wild, we love that they took the time to fully wrap it with a unique color theme. The base blue could almost pass for one of the Chevy colors, but the full white, silver, and black graphics page makes it unique. And the way it flows over the hood, rear fenders, and trunk seems to draw even more attention to the upgraded power car pieces. And because it’s all a wrap, this custom style never loses its track-ready feel.
The interior was given all the right investments for a true track machine. That means getting rid of extra weight and making sure everything is focused on speed. There’s a full roll NHRA-certified cage welded to the frame – including protecting the fuel cell in the trunk. A single race seat, full Crow racing harness, B&M ratchet shifter, a Painless switch box, and a quick-release steering wheel are all part of this professional-grade package. And the dash is a clean sheet to make sure you see the essential readouts, and the shift light is prominently on the steering column so that you can earn your spot at the top of the dragstrip.
The full hood lifts off not just for good access but also for everyone to see. After all, this might be a monster motor, but it has such a sweet look with the smooth firewall and all the major components shining brightly. This even gives everyone a peek at the custom tubular steel chassis, and this section is painted silver to match the color theme. But what you’ll really love is all the substance behind the style. This beautiful big block is said to be a massive 632 cubic-inch V8. It’s built with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock aluminum high-rise intake, and a Holley Dominator four-barrel carburetor. You’ll also spot the best supporting components like fabricated valve covers, steel braided lines with AN fittings, and a large aluminum radiator with an electric fan. This professional build knows how to exhale with authority thanks to big headers directly feeding the side exhaust. You know this is a HUGE power machine. That’s why the transmission is a stout TH400 three-speed that put you in proper control with a large stall, trans brake, and manual valve body. This feeds a 9-inch rear that’s said to be reinforced with Strange Engineering axles. Underneath is also a custom steel chassis, tubular A-arm front end, four-link reinforced rear, adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes.
