2002 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
In 1966 Mustangs were flying out of Ford showrooms, and Chevrolet needed an answer. After many secret meetings, and covert internal press events, engineers unveiled the official name for what had been known up to this point as XP-836. Camaro was the chosen namesake, and immediately the question became “but what does it mean?”. This question has no official linguistic answer, but as Chevrolet marketing people would answer “It's an animal that eats Mustangs!”
2002 marked the last year of production of the fourth generation Camaro and the Camaro model in Chevrolet's line of passenger cars. The low mileage (24,200) SS that we have to offer is a fully loaded and preferred 6-speed. Powered by the Corvette LS-1 engine producing 325hp through 5.7 Liters, the SLP modified sport coupe was the top pony car in terms of performance and as tested by Motor Trend Magazine.
Donned in triple black, this SS comes with T-tops. Orange accent stripes have been added to the Ram Air hood and along the sides of the car. American Racing Wheels are on all four corners. SS Badging is also seen in 3-dimensional rims painted orange.
Taking the option upgrade when we fling the door open, we are met with black leather seats. 2 power buckets in front, and a smaller 2+2 bench in back. Speaking of options, it is also equipped with power steering, power brakes, tilt wheel, AM/FM CD stereo and power windows. Leather shows some minor lines but otherwise in good shape. A Hurst shifter sits proudly in the center of the console and looks at the dash which is standard for a 02 Camaro. Removable smoked glass T-tops are presenting in nice condition.

Seen as very clean and with usual surface rust on exhaust piping, some suspension, and differential. It is very minor in the whole scheme of things underneath. All seems sound with brakes and suspension.
The 2002 Camaro SS's are continuing to climb in demand and price among muscle and pony car collectors and it would be hard to find a nicer example at the listed price. Offered in the triple black with orange striping and hood scoop accent, this car shows in very good condition.
