This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro NHRA Super Stock racer is originally from Cornhusker''s Raceway (home track) in Nebraska. This car was prepped, converted, and raced starting in 1969 and campaigned in the Super Stock class through 1974 in NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) Division 5, the "West Central Division".
One of the original part-owners of this car was Al McNamara, the proprietor of a Nebraska Chevrolet Franchised dealership. This dealership was Mac''s Chevrolet / Oldsmobile in Crete, Nebraska. The camaro was raced new off the show-room floor in 1969.
From the show-room floor the camaro was shipped to Del Star where he laid on the "one of a kind" paint scheme in his Mason City, Iowa Auto Body Center.
The next stop for this camaro was over to Dick Harrell''s St Louis, Missouri Performance Center where he prepared all of the camaro''s 427 power plants (including an all Aluminum ZL-1 427), the camaro''s chassis, and the camaro''s multiple transmissions. "MR CHEVROLET''S" shop converted the camaro from it''s original Muncie four speed to a Harrell Performance Center prepared Turbo 400 transmission. Dick''s shop also supplied a specially prepared "Clutch Driven" Turbo 400 transmission for use later in the 1969 season.
The "Legendary" NHRA Division 5 driver, Charles (Charlie) Jacobs, also a part-owner of this camaro, campaigned as the driver of this camaro with great success winning his division''s "points" class in Super Stock and his division''s "Chevrolet Manufacturers" class.
Al and Charles sold the car sometime in 1970 to the next set of owners. These owners continued to campaign the camaro, which afforded them division wins in 1971 and 1973.
The history is deep with this Champion Racer and I have preserved it the best that I could. Now it''s time for someone else to carry on.
For those of you whom asked if I would take a trade, the answer is yes.
I would entertain a trade fitting the following criteria;
LS1 or greater (2,3,7, or X) modern drivetrain "Detroit Speed" style ground pounder in a 1969-70 Camaro, 1966-1967 Nova HT Shoebox, or 1955 HT Belair configuration.
