Royal Purple to Unveil a GAP Racing 1967 Camaro

Oct 23, 2017

Synthetic lubricant and performance chemical manufacturer, Royal Purple, will unveil a custom built 1967 Camaro built by GAP Racing at its SEMA booth (No. 23543) at 2 p.m. on Oct. 31.

The ZL1 inspired build features a Chevrolet Performance LT4 engine, custom Baer brake calipers and HRE Wheels. While remaining stylistically a 1967 Camaro, parts have been adapted from several generations of the Camaro, including the 2018 model, for the ultimate combination of retro and modern styling.

The vehicle unveiling will include interviews with Royal Purple product specialists and GAP Racing owner Tim Palazzolo. For those not attending SEMA, the reveal will be live-streamed on the Royal Purple Facebook page using Facebook Live.

There also will be three other vehicles displayed in the booth, including a 1932 Ford built by Tim Strange, a 1967 Chevrolet C10 truck built by Brady Cassel and Bobby Ducote of Street Outlaws’ 1986 Ford Mustang.

Additionally, Royal Purple will host various celebrity signings throughout the show. Signings include TV personalities Katie Osborne, co-host of PowerNation TV and Heather Storm, a co-host of Velocity’s Garage Squad.
