1970 Chevrolet Camaro rebuilt to 1971 specs for sale in Longview Texas. This is a $65,000, frame-off, fully restored, second gen Camaro show car winner. Yes. I spent 2 years and $65,000 restoring this beauty, thinking I was never going to sell it. Well, the economy being what it is, we're looking to move, and my new house won't have a 3 car garage... so my hard work, and money, is your gain. There is $40,000 worth of work in this car that you don't have to pay for! The VIN on this car says it's a 1970 6 cylinder, but it has been restored into a 1971 four speed manual transmission, with Hurst 'T' shifter, power steering, power windows, with a factory stock black vinyl interior, with console, just like it came off the line in Van Nuys. The engine is a newly rebuilt 5 liter, and I have a 350 on an engine rack, with headers, ready to go in, that I'll throw in as part of this deal, if you want. However, the 5 liter does save on gas, and sounds awesome through the fully functional side pipes. It has a factory stock dash, fitted for A/C. I pulled factory A/C from a donor car, and retro fit it into this car. It has not been filled with freon or pressure tested, because the fan motor is stuck in the 'low' position. One of the few adjustments that need to be made to this car. The speedometer is not original, and it's primary readout is in kilometers, with a secondary readout in MPH, and it's not calibrated. The rear tires are P235/60R15, and front P225/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/A raised white letter, of course. I personally redid all the seat covers in factory black vinyl. I had a '71 back in college, and knew that interior inside out. When doing the rebuild, put extra cushion in the front seats, and customized the rear seat, so, when you remove the rear seat cushions, you can flip up the back seat, and use it as a pass through, so you don't have to bend up your fishing poles. The dash has a functional factory clock, functioning defroster switch, and an LED indicator for the burglar alarm. The burglar alarm also functions as a power door lock/unlock. The paint was done by a local artist who did the clear coat with red and blue crushed glass infused in the mix. The result is an ultra~metallic effect, and the car glows with crystals under the lights at night during car shows. The car is done in the GM factory white, with hematite grey flames licking over the hood. It really makes the red 'C' emblem pop on the nose of the car, being one of the few places where color shows off on the monochrome display. There are SS emblems on the car, as I was in the process of building a SS tribute with the 350 I have, but the car is a regular Camaro right now. The emblems pop right off, and the ones behind the front tire are easy to pull off. The side pipes are fully functioning, and really are the perfect accent on this car. The sound system is a Sony 9900MCDX CD/AM/FM/AUX with Kenwood 4" speakers under the backseat armrests, and 6X9 Autobahn speakers in the back deck. What's wrong with it? The A/C needs to be charged and checked, and the blower switch needs attention. When the car first starts, you get a little smoke out of the passenger pipe, which goes away when it warms up. A mechanic/friend of mine says its not a complicated fix. The passenger door handle/lock doesn't work properly from the out side. Opens on the inside just fine. I replaced the mechanism to fix this original problem, but didn't do it right. It needs to be re-installed by someone who knows how to do it. The coolest thing about this car? It's when people honk and wave at you while driving it, and the fact that Americans were walking on the moon when this car was built. Come buy my moon car. Please call 903-238-6091.
