The Jenkins car was an 03C or D. Joe Tryson, Bill's right hand man at the time picked this car up at the GM Tech Center and drove it back to Jenkins' shop in Malvern, PA with factory 4.56 gears and no heater! When I was at Jenkin's shop in 1993, he showed me paperwork for the 375 HP program, and said that his car was the first L78. Jenkins worked with Vince Piggins and Paul Prior to get this engine program going for the newly created NHRA Super Stock class. Without a doubt, if not for Bill Jenkins, there would not be a 396-375hp Camaro. He is the one who worked with GM and got it built. And as many of you Camaro enthusiasts should know, Jenkins won the NHRA US Nationals in Sept 1967, Super Stock Class crushing all of the competition. Ben Wenzel won the NHRA Stock Eliminator class at the same race.
I think this says it all. The 1967 Camaro was on the map in the world of motorsports when it debuted.
