Here is some very cool history about these radical racers! DeKon was the most successful and recognized builder of the H07 silhouette Monza GT race cars. The DeKon modified Chevrolet Monza won the IMSA GT championships in 1976, 1977 and 1978.

In 1974, Chevrolet assisted DeKon Engineering in the design and development of the tube frame Monza race car. General Motors' first automotive design venture using computer aided design and drafting (CADD) was with the Chevrolet Monza. Around late 1974, DeKon began receiving Monza production chassis from GM in order to make the radical transformations from street to track car.

The Dekon Monza featured a tubular frame chassis, an overall weight of about 2,400 pounds, and over 600 horsepower from a fuel-injected V-8 engine. The cars were very fast and competitive, thanks in part to their excellent 50/50 weight distribution. The car's lightweight, high horsepower combination was a formidable competitor in IMSA and other racing series. After some teething problems the DeKon Monza of Al Holbert won the IMSA GT Championship in 1976 and 1977.
