Two brothers into drag racing decided they needed a new car to race at Kilkare drag way in Xenia Ohio. They ventured up to Frost Chevrolet in Mechanicsville Ohio to purchase what was rumored to be a Camaro with a Corvette engine in it from the factory. They picked out a Hugger Orange Endura Bumper COPO Camaro. After several trips down the drag strip the car was sold in 1970.
Mr. Perry purchased the car. He knew about the car through drag racing also. He raced the car in the Mansfield Ohio area for Two year before he sold the car. He also painted the car a Tangerine red color.
Mr. Warner purchase the car and he did very little to the car before he sold it in 1974.
The car at this time has still not left the Mansfield area. Darrell bought the car and he snapped the picture of the car with the original cowl hood and Tangerine paint. Darrell would continue to own the car until 1999. The last time he had the car on the road was 1976. He would eventually sell the car to Dean in 1999. The funny thing was Dean actually was trying to buy the car in 1974 when Darrell bought it. It only took 25 years but Dean ended up with the car.
Dean started to collect parts for a restoration but he soon realized the task was too great and he sold the car in 2005 to Jim without having done any restoration.
This car was purchased from Jim and completed this beautiful concourse restoration.
Is now in Super Car Registry
