1970 Chevrolet Camaro SS Tribute
Second generation Camaros are red hot right now and the best one blend old and new so seamlessly that they feel like vintage cars but bring the thunder like a late-model. Finished in brilliant Cranberry Red paint, this awesome 1970 Chevrolet Camaro SS tribute also features a thumping 383 cubic inch stroker motor, a quick-witted automatic transmission, and enough details to keep you interested for years. The body was professionally refinished, and all of the metalwork is masterfully done with a seamless blend of old and new components. We've always been fond of the way bright colors work on high-performance cars, with the handsome bright red finish keeps this high-performance F-body in the limelight no matter who else shows up. All the unique Camaro performance details were retained, including front and rear spoilers, a cowl-induction hood, and even SS badging, which creates a car that Chevy didn't build but could have. And, of course, there are those black stripes which instantly identify this Camaro as something special. The paint is very nicely done with first-rate fit and finish, although it does show a few signs of use and age, as you'd expect. Up front there's a correct blacked-out grille with an RS conversion, while out back four round taillights make the second-generation Camaro instantly recognizable from a distance. A mixture of original equipment with a few upgrades greets you inside. The black buckets have been fully restored with fresh foam and new covers, which match the door panels perfectly. New carpets make it look showroom fresh, and the dash pad is unblemished, so it has an OEM feel when you're behind the wheel. Factory gauges cover the basics, but there are auxiliary dials down on the center console, and even today the wrap-around instrument panel uses a proper "camera case" finish. This car also includes an AM/FM/CD stereo radio in the center of the dash and a familiar "horseshoe" shifter to manage the transmission underneath. The rear seat looks almost completely unused and you'll note there are tailored carpeted floor mats to help keep things tidy. Under that cool deck lid spoiler is a clean trunk with a correct mat and new weather seals. The engine is a fresh 383 cubic inch V8 that delivers a big block whack of torque without the weight. Aluminum heads and a GM high-rise intake manifold are clues that this isn't just a garden-variety small block, and the guys at Summit Racing rate it at 450 horsepower. It feels like it! Other details include a full MSD ignition system, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, a big radiator, and long-tube headers. The TCI TH350 3-speed automatic transmission gives this SS that immediate, hands-on feel, making it a fantastic point-and-go machine. Out back, a set of 3.73 gears and a Posi in the 10-bolt rear end are the ideal dance partners, delivering snappy acceleration that never gets boring. The undercarriage is quite clean and has been upgraded with a set of subframe connectors and a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. It rolls on a set of gorgeous 20-inch IROC replicas which carry 245/35/20 front and 255/45/20 rear performance radials. Someone spent an awful lot of money on this SS tribute, endowing it with a classic performance look that stands out because it's unusual. We don't often see second-generation Camaros this nice, so don't miss this opportunity, call now!
