Chevy's first generation Camaro might just be one of the coolest cars ever created. Extremely fun to drive, with plenty of power and striking good looks, these classics enjoy a cult-like following and provide one of the best ownership experiences on the planet. That unique combination of approachability and appeal has significantly contributed to the brand's continued rise in popularity. And restorations like this well-done Super Sport, with its powerful big block and rugged 4-speed drivetrain, are always hot sellers. Are you one of the many enthusiasts tirelessly searching for a captivating Chevy pony car? Don't miss your chance to claim this awesome Camaro coupe!
Fully sorted and ready for years of endless cruising, this silky Chevrolet recently benefitted from a professional restoration that massaged every square inch of its sculpted sheetmetal into better-than-new condition. After the car was completely stripped, and a few high quality replacement panels welded up, its body was blocked into a straight profile and prepped for rich Cortez Silver basecoat. Once that dynamic urethane dried, traditional Tuxedo Black side stripes were sealed in a glossy layer of clearcoat. And today, this top notch Camaro combines the best aspects of big block Chevrolet performance with the kind of gratuitous fun and old school style that's only afforded by classic Detroit muscle.
With balanced proportions and modernist detailing, the first generation Camaro is an inherently good-looking design. At the front of this coupe's body, a familiar gray grille hangs a bold “SS” emblem between bright halogen headlights, a fresh chrome bumper, crystal clear parking lamps and a stylish D80 chin spoiler. At the sides of that grille, sculpted fenders combine with correct chrome mirrors, traditional chrome handles and bold “396” scripts to add just the right amount of detail to the car's slick silver profile. At the top of those fenders, a traditional ZL2 hood bridges the gap between a familiar “Camaro BY CHEVROLET” header and like-new glass that's traced in straight stainless trim. And opposite that hood, a Satin Black valence hangs chrome-trimmed taillights and a second “SS” emblem between a D80 decklid and second chrome bumper.
Peer between the car's Satin Black fenders and you'll find a 396 cubic inch L34 V8 that creates a solid 350 horsepower. As it sits, this Camaro provides a conventional answer to the equation time = distance/speed. Any good gearhead knows the best way to decrease time is to increase speed; and that's exactly what this legendary mill does! Oxygen and dinosaurs enter the combustion chambers through a mirrored air cleaner, stainless fluid lines and a reliable Holley carburetor. Below that carburetor, a sea of brilliant Chevy Orange coats the block from its big Holley intake all the way to its stamped steel oil pan. At the back of that intake, a familiar HEI distributor shoots spark through eight MSD Street Fire plug wires. Below those wires, chrome valve covers perfectly complement coated Hooker Competition headers. And in front of those valve covers, attractive chrome pulleys spin a factory power steering pump and fresh Sanden AC compressor. Aesthetically, this road ready Chevy's smooth engine bay has been detailed to a very high level. All the right extraneous bits, like an Ansen breather, sturdy fender braces and a Delco Moraine brake booster, are present and accounted for. And if you think this description sounds good, just wait 'til you hear the engine roar!
Park this coupe on a lift and you'll find solid, Satin Black floorpans that provide a fitting backdrop for factory-correct hardware. Behind the buff engine, a correct Muncie 4-speed kicks a familiar GM 12-bolt that spins a posi-traction differential around stout, 3.73 gears. Beneath that drivetrain, a completely rebuilt suspension employs factory power steering. At the corners of that suspension, power front disc and rear drum brakes provide cool and confident stops. Charred dinosaurs float from the aforementioned headers into a large-diameter exhaust system that's complete with aggressive, dual-chamber mufflers. Power flows to the pavement through familiar Rally wheels, which spin 215/65R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As in front of 235/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As. And, in addition to fresh shocks and a snazzy differential cover, the car features a full array of stainless finishing components.
Inside this cool F1 you'll find a fully restored Black Houndstooth interior that's one of the most stylish cockpits ever created. The completely rebuilt front bucket and rear bench seats, which feature deluxe headrests, feel as firm as the day they left the showroom. In front of those seats, a pliable, crack-free dash frames a direct-fit stereo and Vintage Air climate control. Below that dash, a traditional black console anchors a chrome Hurst shifter inside vivid wood accents. Below that console, like-new carpet centers heavy duty floor mats on chrome-lined pedals. At the sides of that carpet, standard door panels hang small armrests between new chrome handles and pristine stainless trim. In front of the driver, a handsome Rally wheel spins a red, white and blue horn button around an 8,000 RPM tachometer. And behind the passengers, a new mat, new jack and full-size spare inhabit a fully restored trunk.
47 years ago, Chevrolet's Camaro set the precedent for attainable performance cars. Today, it remains one of the hottest brands on the market. This fully sorted Super Sport is a high quality cruiser that mixes a potent big block with a reliable drivetrain and well-executed restoration. It's the perfect toy for any red-blooded car guy. And, since owning a classic car is one of the coolest hobbies on the planet, it's the perfect way to celebrate your success!

What Customers Are Saying
After hearing good things about the people at RK Motors, I contacted them regarding consignment of my street rod. I found Tony Klein to be a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and forthcoming in our communications. He evaluated my vehicle and made suggestions of enhancements which would help ensure the desired result would be achieved in the marketing of the vehicle. We agreed on an acceptable sale price. Following the completion of the recommended items, I brought the vehicle to RK for consignment. After a thorough inspection and correction of some minor issues at what I considered a fair price, the vehicle was offered for sale. It sold quickly with me receiving the agreed value. I would have to repeat the recommendation that I received. RK Motors does what they say they will do, and obtains for the seller a fair and agreed value. What more could you ask for?Doug C.
