1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS running in the 10’s

May 12th, 2007

Take a look at this gorgeous blue first generation 1968 Camaro SS submitted by Brett running at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in New Jersey. It’s running a 555 cubic inch BBC motor with a host of built up internals, including JE forged pistons, forged rods and ported aluminum heads.

Weighing in at around 3700 pounds this Camaro puts the power to the ground through a Turbo 400 transmission with a 10″ 3000 stall. There is no dyno sheet posted yet but we would estimate over 600HP to the wheels. Brett’s getting some amazing short times in the 1.5x range using polished weld wheels wrapped with Hoosier quick time pro slicks.

Running in 49 degree weather Brett’s latest run is a 10.6 @ 128.8 MPH with a 1.51 60′ time. Click on the picture below to view Brett’s record.

Did you know?
Every engine in every Chevrolet Camaro built by General Motors was a pushrod-actuated valve design. There has never been an overhead cam engine in a Camaro from the factory.
