Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S116 70 ½ Chevrolet Camaro
The early years of Pro Stock racing saw some of the most exciting heads-up racing and the most intense fan support the sport had ever experienced. The 1971 season saw some spectacular matchups, with legendary racers like "Dyno Don" Nicholson, "Dandy" Dick Landy, Sox & Martin and the man from Malvern, Pennsylvania, Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins. Jenkins had been a well-known fixture at tracks since GM's factory racing days. As a privateer, Jenkins went on to represent Chevrolet and soon became one of their most successful racers ever. This 1970 ½ Camaro was the first car that Jenkins built specifically for the class, and its track record with Jenkins, Bruce Larson and later, East Coast racer Richie Zul is nothing short of legendary.
Grumpy's Toy VII has been painstakingly restored to its original race configuration, including a correct "512" cast-iron 427 block, aluminum heads, and Weiand tunnel ram with "period correct" 750 cfm Holley double-pumper carbs. Additionally, the Camaro was finished in its original race livery and looks like it emerged from a time machine. It was recently featured in Super Chevy magazine and is in concours condition.
