We previously highlighted one of the many incredible machines that were headed to RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island auction being this 1986 Chevrolet Camaro.
Not just any 1968 Camaro, though, a race-prepped and engineered Sunoco livery Camaro. The pony car was done up with a 302 cubic-inch Traco-Chevrolet V8 engine with dual four-barrel Cross-Ram intake manifold, good for 420 hp. Power is sent through a four-speed Rockcrusher manual gearbox, and racing suspension buts round out the 1968 Camaro’s pedigree.
If you wanted it, it’s too late, however. The 1986 Chevrolet Sunoco Camaro moved at RM Sotheby’s for a cool $990,000. Initial estimates pegged the Sunoco Camaro to sell between $900,000 and $1.2 million, so it certainly landed within the ballpark.
Now, the owner gets to enjoy seat time where Mark Donohue and Sam Posey spent countless hours wheeling the 1968 Camaro to numerous wins and podium finishes in the U.S. and Europe.
