Norm Beechey ’68 Ca­maro

Australian Muscle Car - - Mail -

When the Chev Nova failed at the not in­con­sid­er­able task of beat­ing Geoghe­gan’s Mus­tang, Beechey got a Ca­maro (and ‘de­moed’ it as a road car at the Calder May meet­ing). As ex­pected, a Ca­maro in Beechey’s hands was a for­mi­da­ble weapon; in that year’s ATCC race he was trail­ing Geoghe­gan by only a few sec­onds when a me­chan­i­cal is­sue halted the Chev. But Beechey didn’t go on with the Ca­maro much longer – the deal with GM-H to de­velop the new Monaro for Im­proved Pro­duc­tion was in place even be­fore the Ca­maro hit the track.
