If you weren't around in 1970, you don't know what a radical machine the second-generation Camaro really was. There was simply nothing else on the street as slick as this RS tribute, and even the hottest engine of 1970 was probably no match for the 325 horsepower crate motor that's under the hood today. With just 471 miles since the rebuild, this is an awesome second-generation F-body that's ready to rock. The Medium Blue Metallic finish is the perfect choice if your goal is staying under the radar with your new Camaro. Nicely restored, it shows off the restyled Camaro's curves without drawing undue attention. The RS split front bumper and grille were added during the restoration, but nobody can argue over that particular choice-it's what we all would have ordered if we were buying this car in 1970. Subtly contrasting stripes were added, and gives the sophisticated paint a bit of an attitude, and the way the stripes wrap around the rear spoiler will at least give the other guy something to look at while you're pulling away from him. The bumpers are beautifully rechromed, the stainless has been polished, and it appears that the taillights are brand new, with everything sparkling like jewelry against the blue paint. The interior got a big makeover in 1970 as well, and this one has been faithfully restored to stock condition. Both front and rear seats sport unusual woven inserts that are surely more comfortable than the sticky vinyl of early Camaros, and the center console features GM's awesome "horseshoe" shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic underneath. The instrument panel was a new wrap-around design fitted with upscale burled walnut (simulated, of course) and a complete set of gauges. Upgrades include a new Vintage Air HVAC system with controls in the original location and an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit that fits so neatly you'll swear it's factory-installed. The trunk features a correct mat, and it's easy to see that this car was never rusty. Although it's doing its best impression of a '60s Corvette motor, the engine is actually a 350 cubic inch crate motor that was installed in 2010. Rated at 325 horsepower, it's dressed like an L79, complete with stock air cleaner wearing 350 horsepower decals. The finned valve covers are a traditional Chevy touch, and the bright Chevy Orange paint on the block really stands out against the satin black engine bay. A Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop an aluminum intake probably adds a few horsepower, and makes this car extremely easy to drive. Power steering and brakes are welcome additions, along with a fresh alternator and rebuilt braking system. Underneath, the chassis is shockingly clean, with no sign of rust or rot anywhere-42-year-old cars are NEVER this clean. Flowmaster supplied the dual exhaust system, and it rolls on a set of optional Z/28 alloys wearing 215/65/15 Firestones. If you like your horsepower highly polished and slightly subtle, this is your Camaro. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
