Bob Jane ’69 Ca­maro ZL-1 427ci drag car

Australian Muscle Car - - Mail -

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!
