The Sports Car Club of America’s Trans-Am series was still in its infancy at the beginning of the 1967 season, and Chevrolet had yet to win its first race. This veteran Trans Am 1967 Camaro Z/28 may not have earned Chevy a win that year, but it was on hand to witness some of Chevy’s earliest road racing victories.
This car was first campaigned in 1967 by Huffman Chevrolet at Marlboro Speedway in Maryland, which also happened to be the same race in which Chevy racked up their first Trans-Am series win. Later that year, the car competed at Daytona before being sold to its second owner, who raced it Lime Rock and other Trans-Am races.
Today the Camaro remains in full race-spec, with a 310 cubic inch V8 engine producing 550 horsepower. The car also retains the original 12 bolt rear end and drive shaft loop and the original seat brackets and sway bars. Despite its racing pedigree, it was never been crashed and was always stored inside.
If we had the money, time and resources to go vintage racing, we would definitely look at purchasing this seasoned Z/28, if not for its racing heritage alone. Check out the ad on Hemmings for addition photos and information.
