Chevrolet to offer Camaro NHRA-certified rolling chassis

Article by Anita Panait, on March 27, 2013

Chevrolet will build a limited number of Camaro NHRA-certified rolling chassis developed for drag racing.  The Camaro NHRA-certified rolling chassis provides consumer/racers with assembled, painted body and chassis ready to be finished. Consumers only have to install their engine, transmission and other drivetrain components.

Consumers could complete their drag racing cars by availing of the components -- crate engines, racing engine components and electronics -- directly from Chevrolet Performance. They could view the catalog online at chevroletperformance.com. Customers just need to call 1-800-306-3005 to order a Camaro rolling chassis.

The call center will then send purchase certificates for the limited number of rolling chassis to be constructed. Customers will then take the certificates to the Chevrolet dealerships of their choice to complete the sales.

All rolling chassis come in Summit White, with a production Camaro hood and SS grille, production window glass, headlamps, tail lamps and more. Included are racing seats, a production-style instrument panel, steering wheel and racing switch panel, as well as door panels, headliner and black carpeting.

Although basic body and chassis wiring is built into the rolling chassis, it does not come with engine harnesses or a battery. Chevrolet is assembling the Camaro NHRA-certified rolling chassis by hand at the same site that builds its COPO Camaro production race cars. The rolling chassis will be available starting March 28, 2013 at $55,000.
