As cool as investment grade, first generation Camaros are, it seems that EVERYONE either owns one or knows someone who owns one. And as much as we enjoy watching killer F1s parade through our doors, it's always nice to see a pristine, second generation car. Being an avid Camaro fan, you probably know finding a well-done F2 isn't all that hard. But the chances of scoring an early, numbers-matching Z28 are becoming almost as likely as purchasing a winning lotto ticket. Luckily, since the passionate gearheads at RK Motors Charlotte specialize in the unique and hard to find, we can offer you one-of-a-kind opportunities like this pristine, fully documented 'hugger'. Featuring an original LT-1 V8, an original Muncie 4-speed and correct black and silver war paint, this super clean, investment grade muscle car will take you right back to the high octane summer of 1971!

Logging only weekend miles since its detailed, frame-off restoration, this bold panther displays excellent bodywork that simply glistens under our bright showroom lights. A lot of effort was put into making sure the car's body is extremely straight, which resulted in Kansas-flat sheetmetal that's completely wave-free. That time was well spent, as excellent panel gaps perfectly center hinged pieces which move freely and close with solidity. And those pieces are bathed in a correct Nevada Silver and Tuxedo Black basecoat that's been sealed in a rugged clearcoat shell and buffed to a spectacular shine.
General Motors envisioned the F2 Camaro as a working man's Ferrari and, thanks to a better timeframe and bigger budget, effectively addressed many of the complaints enthusiasts had about the F1. Longer, wider, lower to the ground and more aggressive, the second generation was certainly more of a driver's car, and is widely regarded as some of the best looking and best performing Detroit steel ever produced. At the front of this coupe, a striking, two-piece valence centers a bright chrome bumper and “Z28” branded grille between clear headlights, large parking lamps and a body-width spoiler that leans all the way back to the car's front tires. Behind that valence, a smooth, stainless-trimmed hood anchors like-new, stainless-trimmed glass between body-matched sport mirrors, well hidden windshield wipers and a correct vinyl roof. At the sides of that hood, a clean fuselage keeps extraneous trim to a minimum with only flip up door handles, dent-free rocker moldings and correct “Z28” fender emblems breaking the cadence of the smooth, Nevada Silver paint. And at the back of that fuselage, a low profile ducktail hangs a correct “Z28” emblem above chrome-trimmed tail lights, a straight chrome bumper and bright stainless exhaust tips.
Many bowtie buffs rave about the first generation Z/28 and Chevrolet's legendary DZ 302. But in reality, the LT-1 350 found under this Camaro's hood is a much better engine. Wearing a correct 3970010 casting number, a 4-speed/LT-1 exclusive “CGP” suffix stamp and a correct 520109 partial VIN, this awesome small block twists stout 9 to 1 compression into an even 330 horsepower and massive 360 lb./ft. of torque! At the top of that hot mill, wind is forced through a fully detailed, dual-snorkel air cleaner to a familiar Holley carburetor and correct Winter intake. At the sides of that intake, finned aluminum valve covers loom fresh Packard TV R Suppression cables over correct, cast iron exhaust manifolds. At the back of those valve covers, a standard points distributor rides beside a fully functional wiper motor and a gold Delco Moraine brake booster. Cooling is provided by a heavy duty radiator, which sends water past a correctly shrouded fan via pliable GM hoses and reproduction tower clamps. Naturally, the car's Satin Black and Chevy Orange engine bay is clean and ready for show. And items like correct decals, a fresh battery topper and factory smog equipment round out a roster of excellent, showroom-fresh details.
As expected, the bottom of this Camaro has been completely restored, with straight and solid floorpans bolted to a clean, fully detailed chassis. The car's original wide range 4-speed hangs a correct 3925660 casting number above a matching 520109 partial VIN and 1971 (1) Muncie (P) M20 (A) assembled on December (T) 3rd (03) of 1970 build stamp. That tough transmission twists a sturdy GM 10-bolt, which spins a posi-traction differential around 3.73 pavement scorchers. Factory power front disc and rear drum brakes combine with quick-ratio power steering to tighten turns and improve stops. A correct, true-dual exhaust system funnels spent gases through low-profile pipes and a transversely-mounted muffler. Power hits the pavement through beefy, five-spoke Rally wheels, which spin F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around pristine trim rings and deep blue center caps. And everything under this Chevy, from its Primer Red floors to its fresh stainless fuel tank, looks solid and ready to pound the pavement.
Open the car's long doors and you'll find a correct GM code 775 Standard Black interior that's stylish and very livable. There's a quartet of well-maintained bucket seats, which mix firm padding with fresh covers and straight frames. In front of those seats, a padded dash hangs a rare 150MPH speedometer and Z28-exclusive, 8,000RPM tachometer behind a chrome-trimmed instrument panel and correct, pushbutton radio. At the bottom of that dash, a correct console centers a Hurst shifter between a chrome cue ball, fade-free carpet and rubber floor mats. At the sides of that console, standard door panels hang minimalist hardware over straight, stainless sill plates. Above those panels, a pliable headliner stretches from a chrome rearview mirror to a defroster-equipped package tray. The driver stays connected to the road via an optional Sport steering wheel, which spins a bowtie-branded horn button around a correct Comfortilt steering column. And the passenger's haul cargo in a fully restored and correctly equipped trunk.
The sale of this awesome F-Body includes an original owner's manual and the original window sticker outlined above.
One of Detroit's best combinations of performance and style, early second generation Camaros present excellent opportunity for savvy investors. Because of their relatively low production, early F2 Z28s are some of the most desirable F-Bodies on the market. And this fully documented coupe, with its correct restoration and numbers-matching drivetrain, is the perfect muscle car to round out any discerning enthusiast's collection!

I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
