      1971 Camaro Z28 RS

      Fellow enthusiasts, you ever get the urge to start another project?....yes it's a rhetorical question ;o)

      I have several completed cars and I don't think I can suppress the urge for much longer. I'm contemplating letting one of my favorites go, and letting someone else really enjoy her. While she is driven on a regular basis, she is in a rotation that honestly, just doesn't make sense to keep her in the stable.

      What do you reckon the market is bringing on such an example? The pictures below doesn't do her justice. She is more stunning in person.

      This particular Camaro has a history with several forum members here. There have been several refinements that I have implemented over the years of ownership (Stereo, interior, rewiring, etc).

      Below is an ad that I have queued up to eventually post. Thoughts? Is $55-60K reasonable?

      1971 Camaro Z28 RS that looks as good as it performs. Not a trailer queen, but can easily pass as one. She is built to run and is well sorted out. True “pro-touring” build with all the right components from the leaders in the industry.

      Body and paint 9/10:
      -PPG Dodge Viper GTS blue paint w/ white rally stripes. Painted over 12 years ago and still free of any blemishes and imperfections! Typical small rock chips on lower valence, but touched up and not noticeable. No scratches, dings, dents, etc. Original sheet metal, to include trunk pan and floors that were and remain 100% free of rust. The fact that the paint is in perfect condition is testament to the prep and work done prior to shooting it with color.
      -Underside of the body was stripped, prepped and sealed with Rhino Liner.
      -2" cowl hood (all steel)
      -DSE minitubs

      -Billet battery hold down
      -DSE fender braces
      -Ricks SS fuel tank with walbro 225 pump
      -Smoothed firewall

      Engine/trans 10/10:
      -LS3 w/ custom tune and GM hot cam. (great lope at idle)
      -4L70E trans
      -Billet fuel rails
      -Street & Performance headers
      -Custom cold air intake
      -MSD starter
      -Lokar transmission dipstick
      -Custom 2.5 over the axle stainless exhaust with Magnaflow muffler
      -PRC radiator w/ aluminum shroud and SPAL fans
      -Custom radiator support and closeout
      -KWIK a/c bracket
      -PSI engine harness

      Suspension 10/10:
      -Ridetech 4 link out back with ridetech coilovers
      -Hotchkis drop front springs with Vari-shock coilovers
      -Hotchkis tie rod adjusters
      -SPC upper and lower a arms
      -DSE 600 steering box
      -Hotchkis subframe strut braces
      -Hotchkis subframe connectors
      -Ford 9" rear end 373/true track
      -Strange carrier with billet yoke, posi and 3.70 gears
      -Moser 31 spline axles

      Wheels/Brakes 10/10:
      -Forgeline ZX3 step lip 18x8 and 18x12 wheels

      Car looks stunning. Very well done build. Only thing I would change is 6speed T56.

      But I think your sale expectations are in the right range.

      Thank you for the reply! Yes, a manual would be more engaging to drive.

      The custom tune on her makes the 4L70E a real blast as well. The shift points are perfect...gentle when cruising, and neck snapping when leaning into the throttle.

      Oh and at least half the people prefer an auto anyway. That’s an easy switch for somebody. But it adds to the cost.

      Anyway I think the car would sell quickly. But maybe more likely In March or so.

      Good luck ! If I hear of anybody looking I will send then your way.

      The car is a (slightly) better looking (slightly) better built version of my car !!

      Yeah I'd say that's a fair price. Shouldn't be too hard to sell

      Sweet! Do you have this car advertised anywhere else where there are possibly more photos?

      Thanks, Brian
