“One of the great muscle cars of the 1960s, and of all time,” Belles said. “This Camaro is sweet to look at and sweet to drive. It is the Z28 model which features a 302 cubic inch small block engine, a Muncie four-speed transmission with a Hurst shifter and it is connected to a 12-bolt rear axle with standard 3.73 gears. The compression is about 11:1. Horsepower is still good, in the 290-300 range.” “Some of the other great things on this car include forged pistons, a forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods, a solid lifter camshaft and Holley carburetor on a dual-intake manifold.”
