1970 Chevrolet CamaroI sold this car to my brother-in-law a few months ago, but he's decided to take another direction and buy a a CanAm Spyder to take the wife cruising on instead. So now he wants to sell the Camaro to finance his new hobby! He asked me if I would help him sell the car as he doesn't have an eBay account. Plus, I'm the one that can answer any technical questions about the car since I did most of the restoration work.
This is a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 tribute, this is the first year of the second generation. This car has undergone a "nut and bolt" restoration. Nearly every nut and bolt has been removed and cleaned or replaced! Starting from the bottom up - all wearable suspension components have been replaced. Front and rear bushings, rear leaf springs, front tie rod ends, drag link, etc. All the body-to-frame bushings were replaced as well. The front spindles are 2" drop spindles, the rear was dropped about 1-1/2" resulting in the great stance! All brake parts were replaced/rebuilt, rear brake drums were upgraded to disk brakes. Handling is very good on this car, especially considering it's 48 years old! The brakes are good, but due to the cam in the car they're not perfect. There's just not quite enough vacuum for them.
The engine is a 350-4 bolt main bored .030 over. It was professionally rebuilt 3 years ago by A1 engine in Arlington. The cam is a Comp Thumper, which sounds GREAT but does result in that low vacuum condition mentioned earlier. The heads are aluminum, as is the intake. A Holley 670 carb tops it all off. This car sounds wicked and always attracts a lot of attention just based on how good it sounds! It really is a cruiser though, not a race car. The Vintage Air system keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The TH350 transmission was rebuilt 3 years ago as well. It's got a mild shift kit in it, it shifts great. The differential is a 12 bolt out of a 67 Chevelle. It was rebuilt a couple of years ago by Wilkerson Automotive in Arlington with a set of 3.55:1 gears. The posi unit was also replaced at the same time.
The interior was also refurbished with new carpet, door panels, headliner, back seat covers and dash. The gauges are digital with an analog look, they look and work great. The Scat seats are new, they look great in the car!
The paint was sprayed about 3 years ago. It was wet sanded and buffed, it's smooth and shiny. I'd call it a 9 out of 10, but you should see it and make your own conclusion. The car does look great, and you'll have many conversations with strangers at gas stations and anywhere else you stop (including on the road at a traffic light)!
Like I stated above, I did most of the mechanical work on the car over a period of 4 years. Email me with any questions you have about the car. If you want to take a look at the car, contact me through eBay email and send me your number. I'll shoot it over to my brother-in-law since he gets hundreds of texts and emails a day and doesn't look at the numbers he doesn't know until he has time. This way he'll be sure to see my text and will get back with you as soon as possible rather than a day or two. The car is in Grand Prairie, TX, if you want to take a look.
Of course, you're responsible for picking the car up or having it shipped. And it doesn't have a warranty of any kind, it's sold as-is.
Wire transfer would be the preferred method of payment, but cash or checks are accepted as well. If checks of any type are used, the car will be held for a minimum of 7 days, to make sure the check clears. Thanks for understanding that one!

The last image is actually a short video of the car starting up, so you can hear how great it sounds. I've tried to capture everything in the pictures, look closely at them and message me with any questions you have.
