Here's a great example of one of Chevy's prized 'modern' muscle cars in all of its third-generation glory. This 1991 Chevrolet Camaro RS runs and drives like a dream, having logged an unusually low amount of miles for its age, and features a slick, all-original presentation that we absolutely love. With a slick white-over-red color combination, a strong V8 under the hood, and a top that goes down, this 1-owner droptop Camaro is ready to impress.
To many enthusiasts, the RS is more appealing because of its somewhat more subdued look compared to the extroverted Z/28 and IROC variations. No stripes, a flat hood, and just a modest ducktail spoiler out back, not a gaudy wing to match the usual mullet behind the wheel. But it was still a V8 pony car, so you got ground effects and a deep chin spoiler that make the Camaro look long and low, especially in convertible form. That's original white paint throughout, and aside from some minor signs of age that are inevitable, it's in great condition considering the age. Original paint also means original sheetmetal underneath, so you know this one has never been wrecked or rusty while being conscientiously cared for by the same owner since new. It's never left the warm and sunny state of Texas and given how so many of these were 'rode hard and put up wet' at the Jersey Shore, that's always good news. The big doors close well and without that loose-sounding rattle that plagues high-mileage cars, the chin spoiler hasn't been destroyed on curbs and driveway aprons, the rockers haven't been blasted by gravel, and there are zero Banana Boat Sun Tan lotion stains to be found in the finish. Someone clearly loved this car.
The red cloth interior is pretty sophisticated looking and the grippy buckets are a great place to have some fun. Again, this is entirely original, so the preservation is pretty impressive, with only minor comfort marks to report. Carpets are plush, the dash pad hasn't been baked by the sun, and it looks like everything works like it should. This particular RS is loaded with options, including factory A/C that's been upgraded with new components, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a tilt steering column, and the factory gauges are joined by a trio of auxiliary dials neatly installed in the center of the dash. The original Delco AM/FM/Cassette stereo is still in place, as is the factory center console that splits the front seats, and the rear seat area look barely touched. The original black cloth convertible top still seals up nicely and looks great when it's protecting the car from the elements, and even though the plastic window seen better days, it still folds neatly underneath the original black boot out back.
Despite being one of the most modification-friendly powerplants anywhere, an all-original, bone-stock and strong-running 5.0 liter V8 sits between the shock towers in a well-organized engine compartment. As the featured powerplant of this third generation Camaro, it offers throttle body fuel injection in place of preceding generations' carburetors for better all-weather starting and dependability. The V8 teams with a 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission whose overdrive gear makes driving at highway speeds a low RPM affair, and it spins a more-than-capable 10-bolt rear end that's assisted with a thick rear sway bar. Power brakes -with discs up front - bring low-effort, fade resistant stops, while power steering makes navigating easy. With its aerodynamic shape, wide track and low profile, this Camaro is a strong corner carver on its set of 16" stock wheels wrapped with 245/50/16 Firestone tires.
