HOT ROD has featured a lot of red, first-gen Camaros, but this one is special. This was the first red, first-gen Camaro ever featured in HOT ROD. After a brief stint at Motor Trend where the stock pony car was tested, the 1967 SS 350 4-speed car was handed over to HOT ROD for testing with aftermarket parts. Over the course of its tenure at the magazine, the car was used to develop a number of products, including Hedman Hedders, Hurst Line-Loc, Lakewood traction bars, and the Edelbrock C4B intake manifold. Vic Edelbrock has owned the Camaro since 1997, when he purchased it from former HOT ROD editor Jim MacFarland. It has since been restored and now runs a 460hp Edelbrock crate 383 that's linked to the original Muncie M21 4-speed.
