1989 Chevrolet Camaro RSUp for sale is my is a 1989 Camaro RS. It's the rare 5.0 5speed combo. Just over 106,300 miles.
It's got documented provenance. It runs like a top and that "little" 305's performance will surprise you. Especially with the 5 speed transmission behind it.
I bought the car in 1999 from the original owner with around 55k on the odometer. The original owner was an acquaintance, and she literally drove it to work 10 miles up and back the same street she lived on for 10 years. I drove it around for about a year before relocating, and leaving it at home. It's been largely sitting in a barn for the last 15 or so years, driven a few miles a every month or so, just to keep things from settling.
It's got a stack of receipts that go along with it, totaling more than the opening bid.
This summer I pulled it out of the barn, drove it halfway across the country to Texas, and have been driving it a few miles a week since.
Rebuilt TBI fuel injection - incl. new injectors
New shocks and struts.
tilt Steering column slop -repaired
TPS sensor replaced
water pump and temp sensor
have a new o2 sensor and plugs (needs installed)
clutch (~5k on the new clutch)
Professionally repainted using original OEM red, but added the silver stripes
Tires (about 85% still)
hood and hatch struts
more stuff I'm forgetting.
Interior is in great shape for being 30 years old
plastic parts and dash are in Pristine shape and have been unmolested aside from a stereo (I still have the OEM)
Seat fabric is a bit worn at the bolsters but the herringbone tweed is still in decent shape and could be cleaned up but replacements or seat covers probably make more sense.
Front end Alignment.
Has a small ouchie in the passenger side rear spoiler. Front bumper shows cracking in paint from flex (they all do it sooner or later)
The car runs like a swiss watch. Everything works, except AC is starting to blow warm. I'm certain it just needs to be recharged.
No leaks, doesn't burn any oil. Engine has plenty of power and life left on it.
Arkansas pot holes did the alignment in, could use an alignment but it's not been bad enough to bother me.
I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere. It's complete right down to the jack and donut spare. It's never been butchered, wrecked, raced, or reamed. Adult owned and driven.
I've also got a box of original parts, and spares (sensors etc) that go with it as well as the original Red RS rims.
