Originally built by the factory as an RS, this classic first generation Camaro has been upgraded to an SS 396 clone. The car has gone through an extensive restoration, resulting in one of the finest restored vehicles we have ever seen. This is a two owner car: the current owner purchased it from the original owner in 1977. At that time, it was a stock RS with a 327 cu. in. engine, a 2 speed Powerglide automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and a tilt wheel.

Since then, the car was completely restored and rebuilt, including many upgrades, using primarily NOS (New Old Stock) Chevrolet parts. The car received a complete body-off restoration with the body and frame chemically stripped (dipped), epoxy primed and seam sealed. The rear quarter panels and wheel wells were replaced with NOS parts.

Upgrades include a 1970 stock 454 cu. in. block with 18,000 miles, including the correct intake manifold and carburetor and Jet-Hot coated headers, connected to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission and a 12 bolt 3:73 Positraction rear end from a Z28 Camaro. Brake and fuel lines are stainless steel, as is the Magnaflow exhaust system. The factory original four piston brakes have been restored and are retained. The suspension includes Global West upper and lower control arms, Del-aluminum bushings, ½ in. lower springs, and Hotchkiss sway bars. A quick ratio steering box has been added, and the wiring harness is new.

The car has been magnificently repainted in its original Granada Gold finish, set off by a correct black vinyl top. The interior is completely redone in the correct RS deluxe gold trim. All gauges are original and restored. The fenders, hood, grille and GM emblems are all NOS parts. The car rides on Diamondback Classic gold line tires and 15” Rallye wheels.

This Camaro comes with a photo album of the complete restoration, and all receipts. It has been driven only 30 miles since completion, and the odometer shows only 84,391 total miles.
