Bob Jane ’69 Ca­maro ZL-1 427/350ci

Australian Muscle Car - - Mail -

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.
