Crusher Camaro Hits the Drag Strip! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 3
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we look at the history of HOT ROD
magazine's longest-term project car, the Crusher Camaro. Watch as the '67 goes to
the drag strip for the very first time in its latest configuration as a
'70s street machine, complete with an 8-71 blower on a big-block Chevy.
For you tech heads, here are the specs on the car: It's a '67 Camaro that weighs 3,650 with the
driver. The engine is 489 ci with a Weiand 8-71 that has been blueprinted
by The Blower Shop in Simi Valley, California. The carbs are 750 Holleys,
and the oval-port heads are also from Holley. The engine has a very small
(226-at-0.050) hydraulic roller cam. At 5 psi Boost, it makes 520 hp at the wheels, and 500
lb-ft of torque. The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E auto-overdrive, and
the rear gears are 3.50:1 in a Ford 9-inch with a Wavetrac diff from Moser
Engineering. We ran the Crusher on 30x9.50-15 Hoosier radial slicks for
this trip to the track, though on the street it rides on Pro-Tracs from
Coker Tire. This car is very streetable on 91-octane gas.
