Grumpy Jenkins is widely known for his superior engine building skills, being a top-notch drag racer and a multi-motorsports hall of fame inductee. But before he made a name for himself, Jenkins was just a normal guy, or at least as normal as any future Chevy great could be. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on December 22, 1930, Jenkins was born William Tyler Jenkins, (it wasn\'t until much later in life that he acquired the nickname \"The Grump\" or \"Grumpy\"). Raised in Malvern, Pennsylvania, Jenkins grew up on his grandfather\'s unused farm property, located within a few miles of what is now the ritzy Main Line area. Like many young boys, Jenkins became interested in engines and vehicles around the age of 12. After all, he would be old enough to have some sort of vehicle to drive around the farm soon, and he looked forward to that opportunity. Unbeknownst to him, it was this first real thought of engines and vehicles in his early teenage years, that would eventually lead him to being the amazing engine builder he became later in life. -Thx to Chevyhardcore.com
As sometimes happens in life and especially with race cars, they are lost to the ravages of time, accidents, or become outdated and unfit for competition. Such is the case with the original Grumpy\'s Toy XV, lost to the world but faithfully recreated by our capable consignor. Covering every detail down to the decals, engine and even signatures from Larry Lombardo, one of Jenkins\' drivers who is considered by some to be one of the greatest drivers from the early Pro-Stock era, this car is spot on. Proudly offered for consignment and gracing our Hallowed Halls is the perfect tribute to Grumpy\'s Toy XV, a 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Pro-Stock drag car. Not only is this car up to date on its NHRA certifications, it can be shown as it has in the past. This car has been shown at numerous exhibits with Larry Lombardo, was featured in the Cruisin\' Times publication, was a staple of the NHRA Summer Nationals at Raceway Park, Old Time Drags, and various other shows in New Jersey, as well as being in the Eastern Museum Of Motor Racing in York Springs, PA for a number of years. Oh, did I mention that not only is this car current with its NHRA certification but has run a best ET of 8.88 @160mph in the 1/4 mile.....Sunday Sunday Sunday!!!
Please Note: This Car Is Sold On A Bill Of Sale Only, There Is No Title***
