1973 Camaro Sport Coupe. Originally a base 350 sport coupe with manual transmission but now it has an RS split bumper front end. Completely rust free and very clean looking car with nice interior.   If you're looking for a show car. this isn't for you.   The exterior has ok paint with cosmetic flaws and is slightly predented so you don't have to worry about rogue shopping carts hunting you down in a parking lot!
Paint is not perfect and car does have ripples.   There are very small dents and scratches.   Carpet is a little worn
This car is a driver and for the driver who wants to do some canyon carving.   The gearing. overdrive transmission and wide torque curve means it plays nice with others.   Very comfy on the highway and in traffic.

Yes. it has a salvage title.   The car is priced as it is because of that.   If it didn't have the salvage title. it'd be priced higher!  Many stated have ways to remove the salvage title so check with yours.   Also. I have the car insured as a collectors car with a stated value of $20. 00 with no limit on my mileage and I pay $220 a year

Mileage is unknown on the car.   I've put several thousand on it but I got with no working speedo.   If it makes you feel better. nbsp; I've rebuilt pretty much everything!

The cars suspension and brakes are set up more for autocrossing and road racing so really rough or potholed roads are no fun.   The chassis is very stiff because of the subframe connectors and G-Bar too. All the lighting is rewired with relays so the lights get full voltage.   If one ever goes out. change the relay first.   I have them labeled. Everything electrical works including the cigarette lighter.   I rewired the dash but didn't disturb the rest of the wiring because it's in fine shape.
I have fresh Royal Purple HPS 5-30 synthetic in the motor with some extra ZDDP to protect the cam lobes.   Next oil change I'd suggest 10-40 and I'd probably go back to Valvoline VR-1.   The trans and diff both have fresh Redline gear oil

I've kept all my receiptsYou'll get all of them along with a lot of spare parts I didn't use or took off including a very nice 4 season car cover - no scrap I promise!



What's good:
Runs awesome! Zero rust! Very reliable and driveable in any situation. Handles like a slot car. loves the tight and twisty curves but also has the legs for long highways drives. I built it to be very driveable and user friendly. but also be a monster when desired. Needs nothing and is ready to be a daily driver. an autocross threat. or a road course warrior. Stops on a dime. It's very comfortable for long drives too!

What's bad:
Has a salvage title. It was rescued from a wrecking yard with left rear quarter panel damage and no motor.
Has new left rear quarter panel.
Paint is driver quality but gets lots of compliments


Why am I selling it? Good question since it's the best car I've ever owned and I love it! But I have to get started on the $$$ to send my son to college

Motivated seller with reduced reserve!

On May-10-17 at 22:00:45 PDT. seller added the following information:

 The hood and front fenders could use better aligning.   They're aftermarket.   I never bothered dealing with it because to me the cosmetics are not as important as how well a car works and performs.   Also. I just remembered the rear glass has some scratches in it.   The passenger door has new glass and the windshield is new also.   I also have functioning windshield squirters. which is pretty hard to set up with a cowl hood!
