c. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Dragster
Chevrolet's Camaro, in its original 1967-1969 form, is one of the most celebrated muscle cars of all time, and indeed an American style icon of the sixties. Performance models such as the Z/28 were most in demand as they came with upgrades such as power front disc brakes and V8 engines.
The Camaro on offer here is a fully-caged and tubbed drag racer, equipped with a parachute. Reportedly this car has run in the 8-second range with trap speeds exceeding 150 mph. Bonhams has not been able to properly verify this claim, though we'd surely enjoy a chance to do so. The car has been sitting for some time and requires a thorough check over, as with any race car, before serious racing use again.
