This car came equipped with a Muncie 4-speed transmission and posi-traction rear end. Additional options include head rest seats, deluxe seat belts and shoulder harnesses, deluxe interior, power steering, power disc brakes, power top, power windows, AM/FM stereo radio, door edge guards, front and rear floor mats, front and rear bumper guards, lighting group, heavy duty battery, console and gauges with tachometer. This car with these options is fully documented with GM of Canada paperwork.

This Camaro is fully restored and comes with restoration pictures and mechanical receipts. The engine is a factory L78 warranty block.
