About “The NMC Machine”

This is my '69 Camaro S/P bracket car. It has a sbc and it runs consistant 6.50's in the 1/8th & 10.30's in the 1/4. I gave it the Baldwin Phase III paint job last winter. The paint scheme/decals pay tribute to quite a few very popular first gen. Camaro's. Don't forget to check out the video!














About “American Muscle”

My dad looked for this car for probably 20 years. When he found this one, the guys wanted $9,000 for it. So he bought it, but little did he know, it had a 396 out of a 1968 Pickup and had three #1 rods in it. So during restoration he had to decide on an engine. He first picked a 502 Ram Jet, but it stuck out 1/4 inch above the hood, and we wanted to keep the SS hood. So we decided on a 454 big block. Now we have the car back, and put it in as many car shows as we possibly can.

Specs for “American Muscle”

It has a 454 that makes 425 horsepower and I think 400 pounds of torque. it's pretty much stock in the way it looks, so it's not a race car. But it is fast.

 

Factory Options for “The NMC Machine”

All of the RS treatment is airbrushed on. Including the grille, headlights, side marker lights, & side vents. The entire car is finished in BC/CC. The reaer fender flares are hand fabricated and all metal.

Factory Options for “American Muscle”

It's the only chevelle I have seen with factory air conditioning and power windows. Some just have one or the other. This one has both, and they are factory.

 

Mods for “The NMC Machine”

This has been a race car since the early '80's. There is pretty much nothing "stock" left at this point.

Mods for “American Muscle”

The only modifications made on this car is the 454 and the fact that it's restored.
