I'm taking it as it's a fresh restore, so it very well may only have 5 miles on it.. But still.. That's a ton of money. I'll be surprised if it sells.

For a little 302 that things hauls the mail..

Even though it is a Super Stock car, Don Prudhomme's Pepsi Challenger which is a funny car sold for $250,000.

This seems very pricey

Very true Poncho... I'm very familiar with the car and tried to keep track of the car over the years. That car has some cool history to it. I would've loved to take the motor apart back when Jenkins was involved to see what he had up his sleeve.

Very Pricey.. But to the Camaro collectors it's a one of a kind with documented history.. A very good history at that. The Rare car's chevy/mopar and ford will usually bring more money than the funny cars and dragsters. But I didnt think it would have that big of a price on it.

There seems to still be plenty of collectors with very deep pockets and that's who it's priced for. Someone will end up with a 1 of a kind piece of racing history. The low production number, hemi mopars were bringing over a million a few years back. This may be a "bargain" compared to them...
From what I remember of Jerry's racing it, it doesn't have the original block anymore but then I wouldn't expect it to since it was turned to 10k consistently on the track.

The 5 miles may be from the restoration. Even 1/4 mile at a time is only 20 trips down the 1320 and I'm quite certain it's seen many more than that.

O M G.....what some one will pay for a VIN and build tag.... I'm betting they will buy a complete Dynacorn body and transfer the drivetrain to it. That is nuts.
