The 2018 SEMA Show is now memory. The Las Vegas Convention Center is now hosting CES—the go-to venue for vaporware and new technologies alike. About 10 months from now, SEMA will again be at the forefront of the automotive news cycle. However, until then, we have a tiny bit of SEMA history hitting the auction block later this month—a custom 1967 Chevrolet Camaro built by SEMA and WD-40—yes, the company behind iconic penetrating oil.
SEMA and WD-40 collaborated on the project with SEMA’s own SEMA Garage building the custom Chevrolet Camaro. The goal of the project was to highlight the WD-40 Company’s plethora of automotive products that could be used in various restoration or customization projects.
The listing states the Chevrolet Camaro sports a Vortech supercharged 6.2-liter LS3 E-ROD V8. The naturally aspirated version of the LS3 produces 430 horsepower—the supercharger likely adds to that number. The engine pairs with a GM 4L65E four-speed automatic gearbox, which sends power to the rear wheels. Sadly, specific powertrain details aren’t available; however, we do know the Camaro features a custom interior, carbon-fiber spoiler, and classic spoon-style doors.
The car features bright yellow paint that mimics WD-40’s iconic yellow color. Inside, yellow piping and stitching accentuate the black interior. The WD-40 blue-and-yellow logo is embroidered on the headrests.
The custom Chevrolet Camaro sports a host of accessories from a plethora of aftermarket companies thanks to donations from various build partners. Those partners include GM Performance, Budnik Wheels, Nitto Tire, Vortech Superchargers, Baer Inc., Eibach Springs, Magnaflow, K&N Engineering, and many, many more.
The Camaro will roll across the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale, Arizona Thursday, January 17, at approximately 8:30 p.m. local time. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Childhelp, a non-profit organization that helps victims of child abuse.
