For sale in our Chicago showroom is this nostalgic 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Racecar. After a number of engine configurations have passed through this vehicle, the owner finally landed on a small block 383 CID V8 with 4-bolt main caps that has been fully race-prepped and running a very stout 12.5:1 static compression ratio topped with a set of as-cast Brodix heads and a Victor JR. intake. Needless to say, this makes for a healthy amount of power. The gears in the TH-400 are controlled via a B&M Ratchet shifter with a reverse manual shift pattern. The Ford 9” rear axle houses 40-spline axles and a 4.56 rear gear all by Moser Engineering. Caltracs suspension components and QA1 shocks help keep the 29”x10.5 rear slicks planted while the fiberglass body and tubular control arms keep the front end light so the low rolling-resistance of the front 27.5”x4.5 tires don’t slow you down. Inside, the vehicle has been stripped of anything that adds weight, save for the components that keep the car running and safe. A 6-point chromoly roll bar has been ties into the factory unibody to keep the vehicle as safe as need be for most racing leagues. The welded chromoly sub-frame connectors and solid body mounts help eliminate flex for a solid launch that throws you back in your seat. This vehicle is a fantastic bracket racer, as it has very consistent time slips and is sure to win you some bragging rights, if not tournaments. The engine fires up smoothly and runs without a hiccup once it is properly warmed up. The interior keeps a vintage feel while having all the modern gauges and technology to keep the car running in top shape and keep you updated on the engine status. This 1980 Chevrolet Camaro comes in at a very light 2860lbs without a driver and makes enough power to run 10.xx quarter mile times consistently in its current configuration. Options include: Tilt wheel, Seat belts, Vinyl Interior, and Racing wheels. For more information on this powerful Camaro, visit our Chicago showroom.
