What a tough guy! This Camaro has over twice the horsepower that it came with, it has an aggressive stance and when you open the dumps it shakes the ground.

EXTERIOR: This is the same paint job that's been on it for several years it still shows really well. The body is holding up excellent, I don't see any signs of rust or damage. It's straight and fits real nice. The rubber bumpers and spoilers are in excellent shape. It has a fiberglass tall cowl hood, Z-28 louvers in the fenders and sport mirrors. The jambs are painted nice like the car. The weather strips were replaced. It sits taller in back. It rolls on a set of Torque Thrust wheels with fatter tires in back.

INTERIOR: Overall very good condition. The door panels are excellent, seats are not worn, carpet is excellent. The headliner is excellent, the dashpad and steering wheel is very good. It has a center console with a B&M ratchet shifter. There are factory gauges in the dash and an aftermarket gauge cluster below the dash. There is a CD stereo with 6x9 speakers in back. A kill switch is hidden for security. 4 point harnesses were added in back for his kids, the original seatbelts are included too.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Performance built 396 Chevelle motor with square port heads. On top is an Edelbrock intake, 850 Holley double pumper, MSD ignition system. It has a set of headers. It's dressed up with chrome valve covers, alternator, bracket, timing cover, pully, water pump, air cleaner, radiator cover, fender supports and hood latch. A Champion aluminum radiator with 2 Derale electric fans with Dakota Digital controler keeps it cool. Features include power steering and brakes.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The metal looks real solid and it's been spatter painted. Bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are painted like the car. The weather strip was replaced.

UNDERSIDE: The shocks were replaced, air shocks in back. It has frame connectors to prevent twist. Traction bars in back. Ground shaking 3 inch exhaust with electric dumps and stainless Magnaflow mufflers. Looking up at the motor it's clean, has high torque starter and new flywheel cover. The Turbo 400 automatic has a performance build with a 2800 stall, Lokar electric kick down and chrome pan. The floors are undercoated. New subframe bushings.

This isn't a trailer queen you need to wear white gloves to drive it. It's a hot rod to be driven and enjoyed!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
