State-Of-The-Art ’10 Camaro Being Crafted For Outlaw 10.5


The fabricators over at Gilsbach Racecraft are working on another masterpiece. This time they’re turning an ordinary 2010 Camaro into a top notch Outlaw 10.5 race car for Joe Copson.

The chassis is state-of-the-art and the body has been modified to improve the look of the Camaro, with a one-piece front end was modified to allow the factory grille. The power plant will be a Sonny Leonard Big Block Chevy with twin Precision turbochargers, featuring a custom sheet metal intake and a well thought-out design of the piping coming from the turbos and under the intake. There are many other custom fabricated pieces that are going into this one-of-a-kind Camaro, including a multi-stage dry sump oiling system, a throttle body under the dashboard, and the master cylinder under the floor. Custom headers have been built by Gilsbach and it looks like this car will have the popular bullhorn exhaust exiting from behind the front wheels.

Those wheels are Weld Racing’s new V-Series and Mickey Thompson 10.5W’s will be putting big horsepower to the pavement. A GM Turbo 400 three- speed automatic transmission will transfer the power for this ride. Plan’s call for master paint specialist Alan Pennywitt to make this unique ride shine with his paint work.

Car owner, Joe Copson is well-known for his Pontiac Turbo Trans Am from back in the hey day of the GM turbo V6 engine. In the early 90’s his turbo T/A was right in the mix with the Buick Grand Nationals, and this new ride is going to be a real head turner.

Take a look at the photo gallery below to view some of the fabrication skills that are going into this build. We’re looking forward to seeing the finished product in the competitive world of Outlaw 10.5 racing.
