The all-new 1970 Camaro debuted to rave reviews about its aggressive looks and vastly improved ride and handling. A no-compromises car, Chevy engineers held it back until February of 1970, halfway through the model year, to make sure they got it right. This particular 1970 Camaro is a real RS model and is a relatively rare code 19 black car, now dressed in Z/28 livery. It's also loaded with options, including factory A/C, power steering, and a tilt wheel. As far as second-generation Camaros go, this is a lot of car for the money. Black cars can't get away with shortcuts in the bodywork, and this Camaro looks amazing with the black body and white SS stripes. Prep was carefully done, and the black paint was obviously laid down by pros, because it's deep and lustrous. A tall cowl induction hood was added during the restoration, accenting the long nose of the Camaro and giving it a wedge-shaped profile that fits the car's personality. The RS package included those round parking lamps and the wide-mouth grille that most enthusiasts prefer. The rear spoiler is the optional COPO 9796 3-piece unit borrowed from the Trans Am, although only 500 or so Camaros were so equipped before it became standard equipment in mid-1971. The new interior for 1970 Camaros was a big improvement, too, with deeply sculpted high back buckets and a much more driver-oriented cockpit design. Dressed in matching black vinyl, the interior of this Camaro was refreshed several years ago and still looks great today. The seats show very little wear, the door panels are intact and show no cracks, and the carpets are excellent. The woodgrained center console houses GM's ultra-cool horseshoe shifter, and just ahead is a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that's a vast upgrade over the original radio. That pretty rosewood steering wheel on the tilt column is definitely not original, but it looks great in the Camaro's passenger compartment, and nicely frames the factory gauges, including an optional tachometer. For cruising comfort, there are certainly worse places to spend a few hours than inside this Camaro. Power comes from a 350 cubic inch small block that has been built to drive and properly maintained since the car was completed. Chevy Orange stands out in the all black engine bay, although it's pretty buried in there thanks to the lower cowl and hood line of the 1970s models. An Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold lives up top, along with a matching 4-barrel carburetor and chrome air cleaner. There's an MSD ignition system ensuring that every bit of power is extracted from the air/fuel mixture, and it exhales through a set of full-length headers with Flowmaster mufflers. For a little extra flash under the hood, there's a pair of chrome Chevy bow tie valve covers as well as a chrome Powermaster alternator that supplies plenty of juice to run the A/C and stereo. Underneath, it's a solid original car that has been nicely maintained, but not detailed for show and has probably never been apart. The original suspension and power disc brakes manage the road, ably assisted by a set of beautiful charcoal gray Z/28 wheels wearing modern white letter performance radials. With values that are lagging behind their first-generation siblings, 1970 Camaros represent a lot of bang for the buck. With equal power, better handling, and dramatic styling, they remain wonderful cars to own and drive, with a dedicated following that's growing all the time. Few will argue that the best looking of the bunch isn't the early RS, with it's big grille, small bumperettes, and round parking lamps. And in black, it's awfully hard to resist. Nicely built and well maintained, this Camaro is a turn-key car for this summer's show season, and with factory air, it's an ideal long-distance travel partner. Call today!
