Camaro 1997

Title Status --
Exterior Color Sebring Silver Metal
Interior Color Dark Gray


This 1997 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 SS represents a significant page in the era's muscle car wars. But all you really need to know right now is this is an exceptionally preserved coupe with serious V8 power and all the best SLP professional upgrades. So it's impressive that this loaded six-speed T-top Camaro is available at such an obtainable price.

This is a significant year for the Camaro. 1997 is both the 30th anniversary and only the second year that the ultra-hot SS became available again. And there's no mistaking this package for lesser cars thanks to the eye-catching hood scoop force feeding the LT1 underneath. It's finished in its original Sebring Silver Metallic, which gives the car a subtle elegance to go with its brutish speed. The pictures show a car that looks as shiny as the day it was new, and that's for a very good reason. This has a two-owner history, but really, it's just the one owner passing it from his business to himself. So you've got a car that has been under the same care the whole time for nearly a quarter of a century (and don't forget when this crosses the 25-year threshold it's eligible for antique car benefit in some states.) The low mileage and proper respect means this one has an overall pristine presentation that can turn your garage into a showroom.

The dark gray interior is a complementing color to the bright silver exterior. So you know you'll love leaving the T-tops out everywhere you show off this classic. And since this has averaged less than 900 miles annually, everything around this car looks impressive. The floor mats are even still in their original packaging! But this one is desirable for much more than just its stellar condition. The supportive bucket seats are both grippy in the corners and comfortable for all-day drives, and yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. It's loaded with all the best features, like cold air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power steering, dual airbags, cruise control, tilt wheel, keyless entry/alarm, and AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer.

The SS was the top-dog Camaro that came from Chevrolet at the time. The numbers-matching LT1 under the hood was shared with the C4 Corvette. But as you can see from the included window sticker, the masters at SLP (in conjunction with Chevy) added some serious improvements. The motor inhaled deeper with forced air induction, and it exhaled with added power from a performance exhaust package. In fact, horsepower figures were tough to nail down because this Camaro SS was starting to rival the new C5 Corvette. And while this coupe's engine bay looks immaculate, we know you won't be able to resist adding some miles to the odometer. After all, the control provided by the six-speed manual transmission and upgraded Hurst shifter mean the sound and fury of this desirable V8 is always in your hands. Plus, the SLP upgrades included a performance driving package with a Level II sports suspension featuring Bilstein shocks, a separate oil cooler, and Torsen limited-slip rear end. There's also four-wheel power disc brakes, ABS, and the grip of BF Goodrich gForce Comp 2 tires.

The sale comes with all the right paperwork like the owner's manual, maintenance records, and the full original window sticker - including proof of the pricey SLP upgrades. Fourth-gen Camaros don't get much more desirable than this, and it will never be more affordable than now. Call soon!
