David Freiburger's 1967 Chevy, the Crusher Camaro, is one of the industry’s most well-known project cars, having been around Hot Rod magazine since 1994. This changeling is getting its latest makeover on Roadkill Garage (see episodes 14 and 16), and the retro revival wraps up here as the Crusher hits the dragstrip. The car is loosely styled after Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins’ Camaro, which won the very first Pro Stock race at the NHRA Winternationals in 1970. It packs a 550hp, 400ci, tunnel-rammed small-block engine; a trick TH350 transmission from Gearstar; a Gear Vendors Overdrive unit; and 4.57 rear gears. It adds up to a package that’s even quicker and faster than Freiburger and Steve Dulcich had dreamed.
