Trac­tion Bars

Muscle Car Review - - Day Two & Barn Find Camaros -

n I bought a set of trac­tion bars at Nickey Chevro­let back in the sum­mer of 1969 af­ter break­ing the fac­tory spring plates and T-bolts on my first Camaro SS while rac­ing a 1969 GTO. The Nickey trac­tion bars elim­i­nated the wheel hop that plagued first-gen Camaros, es­pe­cially those equipped with mono leaf springs. The Nickey Camaro trac­tion bars have not been avail­able for nearly 50 years, but with the ris­ing pop­u­lar­ity of day-two mus­cle car restora­tions, de­mand has re­sulted in the reis­sue of the orig­i­nal Nickey trac­tion bars. Work­ing with Nickey Per­for­mance, GSS Su­per­cars now pro­duces an ex­act replica of the long un­avail­able orig­i­nals (first with T-bolts [up­per left] and later with the stronger Ea­ton U-bolts [up­per right]). They look just like the orig­i­nals, are pe­riod-cor­rect, and work just as ef­fec­tively to­day as the orig­i­nals did back in the fall of 1966 when Nickey first de­vel­oped them.
