Bob Jane ’69 Camaro ZL-1 427/350ci
The all-alloy 427ci Camaro ZL-1 was the pinnacle of Chev performance in 1971 (and for years after!). It’s a credit to Allan Moffat that he was able to take Bob Jane down to the wire for the ’71 title despite Moff’s Boss Mustang giving away a full two-litres’ engine capacity to the Camaro. CAMS evened things up for ’72 by forcing Jane to revert to a cast-iron 350ci but it made no difference to the result. Jane and the red Camaro earned the unique distinction of claiming consecutive ATCC using two completely different engines.
