It’s been at least a decade since I’ve seen anybody build a car with a Lenco transmission. Those were usually relegated to race-only cars, and if somebody was daring enough to try one on the street, they’d inevitably pair it up with the giant tubs and graphic-heavy pastel paints that were the hallmarks of the Pro Street movement. But, as we see with this thoroughly customized 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, dubbed “Zeus,” at least one person out there managed to adapt a Lenco to a GearVendors overdrive and build a Pro Touring car around it. From the seller’s description:
SOME UNBELIEVABLE ATTRIBUTES OF THIS UNIQUE VEHICLE ARE AS FOLLOWS:
* Pump Gas 707 cubic inch motor under the stock cowl hood height.
* Custom one off traction device that at a touch of a button can be applied and has unbelievable benefits to help harness the 707 cubic inch motors power.
* Maximum sized Vintage Air System squeezed under the dash to give maximum cooling that actually works.
* The engineering in the roll bar and frame work to make sure the structural integrity of the car is not compromised due to the convertible top.
SPECIAL NOTE: this car was completely built in primer and driven. ALL ISSUES were resolved before the car was disassembled and reassembled for paint, followed by the final build.
