Lot #1537 - Rarely do you find a classic car that has been family owned for over 30 years. It's the case with this Camaro. The car has had an extensive interior and exterior restoration. The goal was to keep the car as original as possible while adding performance enhancing upgrades. The engine is a new limited edition GM ZZ430 with less than 800 miles. This engine is touted as being GM Performance Parts most powerful small block crate engine. With 430hp at 5800 RPM and 430 ft/lbs. of torque at 4000 RPM, it's one of GM's rarest and most sought after crate engines. The car has an aluminum radiator with twin 12" electric fans. The Turbo Hydra-matic 350 transmission was professionally rebuilt. Added was a B&M Holeshot torque converter and shift kit. The car has a limited slip 3.73 posi-traction rear end. The road handling was vastly improved with the addition of PST's high quality poly-graphite suspension front end and front sway bar kits. Included in the upgrade was new coil springs and 4 KYB gas shocks. The exterior appearance is absolutely stunning. It was painted metallic silver with black Rally stripes. During the prep, the body was found to have no rust or bondo. The front and rear bumpers were re-chromed. All the exterior fender emblems and trim pieces are genuine GM parts. The car is a Z/28 re-creation, however it was factory ordered with the Rally Sport package which is a rare and highly desired option. The car sports Rally wheels and the correct size Goodyear polyglas tires. The interior of the car has a stock appearance. The seats were finished in black cloth with dark gray vinyl trim. The headliner and carpet are done in black.
