Much like its predecessor, the second-gen Camaro also spawned a number of race cars, especially in Z/28 trim. But while the first-gen Z/28 is famous for winning back-to-back Trans-Am championships in 1968 and 1969, the second-gen model marked the beginning of a less successful era for Chevrolet in the series. It all began with Roger Penske’s decision to leave Chevrolet for American Motors Corporation (AMC) for the 1970 season, taking talented drivers Mark Donohue and Peter Revson with him. With a brand-new car on its hands and no one to run the Trans-Am team, Chevrolet turned to Jim Hall and Chaparral Cars.
Known for his innovative, Chevy-powered Chaparrals that dominated U.S. road racing during the 1960s, Hall built three cars in only six months — one for himself, one for Ed Leslie, and the third as a spare. Although Chevrolet failed to win its third consecutive Trans-Am season, the 1970 “Chaparral” Camaro went into the history books as one of the rarest Camaros ever built. As of this writing, only Hall’s No. 1 car is known to exist, which makes the “Chaparral” Camaro a rare gem among race-spec classic muscle cars.
