2000 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible
You don't have to look very hard to find the muscle/pony car DNA in the Camaro SS. It's there in spades: a rumbling overhead-valve V-8 and a stick-shift tranny, packed in a low slung, distinctly American 2+2. Just like the Z28's and SS's of 30 years ago. No gizmo-actuated variable-valve timing, no overhead cams, no independent rear suspension, no BS. The honest-to-quarter-mile muscle car goods, and one of the last examples on the market that can make the claim of being a true descendant of what it's been from, well, its beginning back in '67.
A 2000 Version of the Camaro graces our halls of Classic Auto Mall. This one announces it has a mere 11,600 miles, a 350ci LS-1 engine, and a full WU8 coded SS package. It's red, and it's a convertible. Just this fact should be enough lure to come in and buy it right off the floor, if though you need more…read on!
Bright Rally Red covers this car, and it is topped with a Black convertible, that operates smoothly and efficiently. Paint is factory born with color, and is original, and in very good condition. From its hood scooped front, to its integrated spoiler in the rear, the great curvaceous bodacious lines of this car appear as it is constantly moving forward, only it is actually standing still! The polished 5 wide spoke 17” wheels give it away though because they would be spinning if this was really moving…I think?!
Flip the top down with the push of a button, and you will have the reveal of all black, and all integrated style-lishious leather, vinyl, and carpet you can wriggle your bear toes in. The leather buckets have just the right height to grab you and this is important because when you put your boot into it, you'll be creating a monster, unleashing all the power of the LS-1. 2+2 leather in the rear also although a bit cramped, you can still pile that other couple in for the double date. In the very center of this black sea of interior, we note a Hurst Shifter. Lots-o-convenience options abound like power mirrors, power locks, power steering, power brakes, AM/FM/CD+ player and premium sound, AC, power top, and ASR mode if you are feeling feisty. Nice SS badged stitched floor mats, unsoiled, unfaded, cover black carpet. Delicious all-around interior-wise.
Seated within the engine bay, and under the low-slung hood is an original 350ci LS-1 V8 that pumps out 320hp. This is attached to an MM6 Tremec 6-speed manual transmission. Adding the SS Performance/Appearance package to a Z28 delivers fiberglass cold-air induction hood, low-restriction dual exhaust system with 2-inch tailpipes, Goodyear's top-of-the-line F1 GS radials on SS-specific 17-inch wheels, stiffer suspension, power steering cooler, and SS-specific rear spoiler. Quite a goody basket for the original additional $4000.
Quite like the day it left the dealership save for some surface rust that has gathered on the straight steel parts of the suspension, but quite unremarkable. Nary even a water spot, says volumes as to how and when this car was driven or not driven. Power disc brakes are noted on all 4 corners underneath as well.
How about a throwback to the original Camaro with loads of power, classic good looks, low mileage, and plenty of conveniences PLUS it's a convertible. Get into Classic Auto Mall's halls quickly as this one will fly off the shelves, I just have a warm and fuzzy feeling!
