Bob Jane ’69 Camaro ZL-1 427ci drag car
There were two Bob Jane 427 ZL-1 Camaros. Jane also brought in an auto version, blue in colour, which he regularly drag raced during 1970 and ’71. The Chev coupe was in its element on the quarter mile – after all, the ZL-1 option pack was conceived speci cally for drag racing: a lightweight, stripped out, ‘poverty pack’ interior version but with (of course) the 427ci alloy Big Block. Like the ATCC car, Jane eventually retro tted it with a 350ci V8. In bog standard, 7-litre trim, it was apparently capable of sub-12 second quarter mile passes!
