81 was the last year for that body right? If so, you only need to extend it 1" to have a legal wheelbase for IMCA stock, just get a nove roof and quarters and your in businessk, (have made my own quarters and decklid for Nova's before). We called it a CANOVA at Big H, it was a good looking car, hehehe, those were the day's.

racer where do u live? around here those camaro's are getting thin. the rear might be usable for ya but the gear is probably to low for racing. later scott

Motor is prbably a 2.8 ltr. Trans will be a turbo 200 metric very weak. Rearend will be a ten bolt maybe a 2.73 gear.

I've got a donor (partout) Camaro myself. So far I've used the RF spindle (steering knuckle) and the rear plastic bumper cover. I plan on using the steering box and the rest of the front suspension / steering components for spares.
