• This Chevrolet Camaro was originally manufactured in 1972 but was imported and registered in the UK in 1973. It is a genuine Z28.


    The car was fully restored over many years and essentially completed by 2013/14 and in the process converted into a track/race car. However sadly the man whose project it was, John Gorbould sadly passed and as a result the almost complete project was sold on. The car comes with a photographic record of the build along with a large file of receipts and invoices. The car also has FIA papers for historic motorsport issued by the MSA in 2011.


    Under new ownership many issues were resolved, and improvements made but due to lack of time and too many other interests, the car has only done a few trackdays and has never been raced as intended.


    The car as it is eligible or potentially eligible for a number of race events, for example CSCC Future Classics, 750MC Bernie’s V8’s, Classic Touring Car Club Pre 83, Motor Racing Legends Historic Touring car series etc.


    The car is exempt from tax and MOT and is currently road registered and insured.

    Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Race Car

    • The car is all steel with the exception of the bonnet and boot lid which are fibreglass. The shell has zero rust and was comprehensively rebuilt to include a welded in roll cage which picks up on the front and rear chassis members to strengthen the car. It has also been fitted with straighteners under the floor which link the front subframe with the rear suspension mountings, increasing rigidity. This a bolt in item so can be removed if required by any technical regulations. The build included new doors and many panels. Everything was painted white (inside and underneath) although the outer body has been sprayed yellow.

      All windows are glass.

      The fibreglass bonnet incorporates a bulge to clear the carburettor which also ensures a supply of cold air to the intake. This has been specially modified to reduce the height of the bulge to improve visibility.

      Inside the dashboard remains except where cut to fit around the roll cage and bespoke electrics. Door cards have been replaced with carbon items and the manual window winders remain. Otherwise, the interior is stripped out with the exception of the driver’s seat and a six point harness. The car is fitted with an OMP plumbed in fire extinguisher which is in date and MSA compliant, activated by pull handles both inside the car and externally on the nearside front wing.

      The original steel bonnet and boot lid come with the car so it could be converted back to all steel if required by appropriate regulations.
