My 67 Camaro when I had the 18º 360ci engine in it. This car is for sale, but currently has a 383 bracket engine and will run 6.0's 1/8mile or 9.5's 1/4mile. I will be racing this until sold.

Here is the 18º engine that was in the car before, it's currently sitting in my garage without a home ...

Here is the roadster rolling chassis I bought this past Winter. It will be my next race car after I sell the Camaro this year. May Super Gas race or maybe just brackets.

It would be a fun ride, but if I sell the Camaro w/o engine & trans then I'll move the 383 into the roadster. If I sell the 383 with the Camaro I'll build another very similar engine for the roadster. I have been thinking what to do with the 360 and not sure but I probably should sell it or at least the head, intake, cam combo. May put some ads up for the whole motor. :-k

The 383 runs on pump gas, has steel rods(never need changing), is much milder (lower rpm) and has run without touching it for 4 seasons. Same valve springs, same plugs, checked rockers a couple times and never had to adjust one. Shift at 6600rpm and as light as my car is it still runs 6.0's in the 1/8 with a 4.56 gear. It is perfect for bracket racing.

The 360 requires C14+ ($$$), has aluminum rods, valve spring check and replace. The 383 was built to be maintenance free for bracket racing and has been exactly what I wanted. The 360 makes 200+hp more but wasn't built to bracket race. It ran a best of 5.48@125 in 1/8th. It was fun, but too expensive for me to want to run it in bracket racing when the 383 type engine will win just as many races and cost much less to operate and require much less of my time.
