Paul Walker’s 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS Z/28 is up for auction

More than a decade ago, Paul Walker, star of the “Fast & Furious” movie series, died in a car accident near Los Angeles. He was a car enthusiast and worked with his friend on the restoration of several cars, including the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS Z/28, which will be auctioned in August.

This Camaro RS Z/28 is a completed Walker project and is an ideal opportunity for fans of this model to restore the car as they like. The car requires a lot of work to bring it back to its original condition. The body of the car is not in bad condition and it should be noted that it left the factory in Le Mans blue, which is almost invisible on the car. There are also original Z/28 Rally rims wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires.

The interior is not in bad condition considering its age. The upholstery on the seats does not look bad, as do the black plastic and wooden details on the central console. The odometer shows 22,639 miles.

Collectors will appreciate the fact that it is still powered by the original 302 CI V-8 engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.

The car was purchased by Chevrolet collector Merle Duprey in 1982, later purchased by Walker and Rodas, then sold back to Duprey in 2013, before finally being purchased by Solo Speed ​​Shop.

2000 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R driven by Paul Walker is for sale

After the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R, driven by Paul Walker in the “Fast and Furious” film franchise, was offered for sale last year, another example of this car will soon be up for auction. This 2000 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R was also driven by the former actor, and the sale was announced by auction house Bonhams.

The car is painted in the legendary Bayside Blue, and Walker personally chose it for the fourth part of the popular franchise. Fans will remember how this car raced through the streets of Los Angeles with the BMW M5 (E39) and Nissan Silvia.

Walker was a big fan of this model, so he played a big role in the development and modification of this car, even down to the smallest details. JDM was imported from Japan, and Kaizo Industries prepared the RB26DETT engine. A Turbonetics intercooler, Nismo NE-1 exhaust system, custom roll cage, as well as ARC titanium struts, Nismo springs and Retora brakes with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers are installed. This allowed the 2.6-liter twin-turbo engine to produce 500 hp (368 kW). As a reminder, the factory model has 276 hp (206 kW). Power is transmitted to all four wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission with rear differential and limited traction. It is mounted on 19-inch Volk Racing RE30 wheels.

Inside, the standard steering wheel has been replaced by a Momo steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara. The rear seats have been removed to reduce weight, and up front there are two OMP racing seats with five-point seat belts. There is also a Sony sound system, head-up display and MFD Xenarc Display unit.

Walker paid attention to detail and refused to use any decals in order to maintain a “clean look”. The car was seized by US customs due to the fact that it was never actually officially sold in the US. In 2012, it was returned to Japan, and then transported to Germany.

The car’s history is unknown from the time it was in Japan. However, it is currently in excellent condition. The auction will be held 28 April – 5 May 2023.

Paul Walker’s 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 sold for $975,000

Two days ago, a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 owned by Paul Walker was sold at auction. It is a car from the private collection of the deceased actor from the “Fast and Furious” film franchise. Although it was estimated that the car could be sold for between $1 million and $1.25 million, this did not happen. The new owner paid only $975,000 for the car.

It all started 49 years ago when the Carrera RS 2.7 had its premiere. Only 1,580 examples were produced and it was named after the 356 Carrera while the RS was developed to meet the homologation requirements in motorsport. It weighs less than 1,000 kg.

The car was designed with a larger body that allowed more space for a larger engine compared to the previous 911 models, which now developed 210 hp (150 kW). It is equipped with new suspension, wider rear wheels and rear fenders for 185 / 70VR15 (front) and 215 / 60VR15 (rear) Pirelli Cinturato CN36 tires. For better aerodynamics and greater downforce, the designers have designed a duck tail. All this allowed the Carrera RS 2.7 to reach 62 mph in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 152 mph (245 km/h).

This Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 is powered by a naturally aspirated 2.7L flat 6-cylinder engine with 210 hp (150 kW). The car is in excellent condition with only 58,268 miles (93,774 km) on the odometer. It is painted in Light Yellow-code 62 color with Black accents, and it is decorated with chrome parts on the windows and headlights. Comes with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and FIA paperwork.
