One of the most aggressive looking GTO's ever built the 1972 model was once
again an options package and had a pile of comfort and style while
retaining much of the bite of its forebears. This very cool Lucerne Blue
number retains all of its original body panels, its original 400ci engine,
is exactly as the Pontiac Historical Society documents lay it out and it's
a four speed - that's the way you want one. Great cars to drive these
tigers are collectables on the rise!
Underneath, you'll find an exceptionally clean chassis. This isn't a full
frame off restoration - it didn't need one! Those are the original, clean
floors, rust free frame and original rear end and handling package
suspension. A quick evaluation is all that's necessary to see the original
brake and fuel systems were up to their tasks and required no major
replacement. That's the original undercoating you're looking at! So many of
these cars died an early death it's refreshing to see one that's so clean!
Deep blue paint covers the rock solid, original exterior. The front end is
definitely the best part with its straight body color bumper, excellent
deeply inset grilles and aggressive hood. The GTO exclusive fenders with
rear air extractors add interest to the sides of the car and look awesome
with the mint Rally II wheels and new Firestone G70x15 Wide Ovals. The body
is straight - care taken during its cosmetic restoration is evident. The
trim and chrome is in excellent shape and is mostly original to the car.
Bodywork was minimal and the finish work was done to a high standard. This
is an attractive car with no hidden gremlins.
Comfortable black vinyl seats with new covers are the order of the day in
the restored interior. The sculpted, clean dash pad covers the fully
functional and clean original gauge cluster and nice original engine turned
finish panels. Original door panels with original armrests are very nice,
interior chrome is original and excellent and there's new carpet at your
feet. The factory Formula steering wheel is in excellent shape and feels
great in your hands. The center console with its Hurst shifter is also a
clean original - there are no complaints from in here. The cabin's simply a
great place to spend time!
Open the trunk to find a brand new Wide Oval mounted to a fifth, mint Rally
II wheel. There's a new mat on the floor, the proper jack, new
weather-stripping on the rail and a fresh coat of spatter paint underneath.
Like the interior and undercarriage, there are no problems and no
Pop the hood and find the original, numbers matching engine in a detailed
engine bay. That's the correct original air cleaner on top of the rebuilt
mill. Some liberty was taken with the internals as the compression's up to
around 10:1 and there's a Ram Air IV spec cam to get the power up to where
you'd expect a 400 to be. Those are original chrome valve covers on the
motor, a restored vacuum Booster and
master cylinder on the firewall and a new battery and correct spring clamp
cables tucked away in the corner. New belts and hoses (with correct tower
clamps) are reliable replacements in this excellent driver!
Solid, original body and engine cars are tough to come by. So are desirable
cars with great color combinations and manual transmissions. And, so are
cars which are still affordable! This car's all three and it's only going
to get more valuable over time! Don't wait on this one!

This 800HP LOMA Corvette made me temporarily deaf when I stood behind it at
Hunt Valley horsepower. I've heard a lot
of loud revs in my day, but none of them ever damaged my hearing as bad as
'67 Crusher Camaro vs '70 Super Bee 1,500-Mile Burnout-Fest! - Roadkill Episode 19
On this episode of Roadkill, it's Freiburger in the Super Bee versus
Finnegan in the '67 Camaro as the guys make the trip
from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City and back to go race at the Midnight
Drags at Rocky Mountain Raceways in hopes of running the Bee on Nitrous for the first time since the Hemi was
installed. Which car will work best over 1,500 miles of mayem in three
The 700hp, blown Crusher Camaro is HOT ROD's longest-term
project car, surviving 20 years at the magazine. David Freiburger's 675hp
Hemi 1970 Dodge Super Bee is his first car, having been with him 30 years.
Both cars suffer from magazine-project-car syndrome: getting brief spurts
of attention followed by long periods of neglect. For the first time in
years, both cars were running and driving at the same time.
The Crusher Camaro is a
'67 model that was purchased for $700 in 1994 during California's
car-crushing program; it was rescued from the parking lot of a junkyard
where it was about to be handed in for crushing. It's been through a number
of engines in its time at HOT ROD magazine, and the most recent is a 489ci
bi-block (4.280 bore, 4.250 stroke) with 9.3:1 compression. It has a small,
224-at-0.050 Comp hydraulic roller cam, Holley oval-port heads, and a
Weiand 8-71 Supercharger with two Holley
850HP carbs. The engine makes 700 hp and 720 lb-ft on 5 psi Boost, but is tame enough to drive anywhere.
The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E that's really awesome, and the Ford
9-inch is loaded with 3.50 gears. The car is styled with Center Line Auto
Drags and a nose-high stance to look like a street machine of the early
¹80s. It has run 10.60 at 125 in the quarter-mile in the same trim seen in
Freiburger's ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is powered by a 10:0:1-compression, 484ci
Hemi with ported iron cylinder heads and a Comp solid roller camshaft. It
also uses a Holley Dominator carb on a custom dual-plane intake manifold by
Dick Landy, whose shop built the long-block in 1995. It made 675 hp on the
engine Dyno, but in
the car is has smaller headers, fairly restrictive Exhaust, and a mechanical fan that pull it down
to around 600. The trans is a Gearstar 727 Torqueflite backed by a Gear
Vendors under/overdrive, and the Strange 60 rearend has 3.73 gears (a
little too high for the
natuarally aspirated combo). The car weights 4,050 pounds with the driver,
and has run 11.80 at 118 mph on the motor.
