With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.
The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.
Classic Car Overview
How about an ultra-clean 2014 Chevrolet Camaro LT convertible with just 59,412 miles on the clock? How about loaded with options, a great color combination, and a look that still draws stares everywhere it goes? And how about the performance of a 3.6 liter DOHC V6 that makes this a car thats a blast to drive but doesnt kill your wallet at the gas pump? The color is called Red Hot, and its the kind of color that people will stop you on the street to ask what it is called. Its simply gorgeous. The LT package on this Camaro makes it look virtually identical to the V8-powered versions, and most folks will never know the difference, so its your little secret. They did a great job revising the retro-looking F-body so it keeps its chiseled good looks without looking dated. Add in vintage styling cues like the gills ahead of the rear wheels, pseudo cowl-induction hood, and the rear spoiler and theres just no question what kind of car this is. Obviously with so few miles on the clock, it looks great in almost every way, with perhaps one or two nicks as evidence that its been driven, but its quite clear that someone really cherished this car. The tan convertible top highlights the rather dramatic curves and with the LT package and a few aftermarket upgrades, theres enough shiny stuff to make it look far more expensive than it is. This Camaro also includes the same highly-functional interior that you get on the V8 cars, complete with those gorgeous two-tone seats and some tasteful red accents throughout the cabin. Thanks to the Camaros impressive handling, youll need the aggressive side bolsters, but theyre also all-day comfortable, perfect for road trips and daily use. The retro-style gauges look very trick in those two big pods ahead of the driver and yes, thats a 7000 RPM redline on the tach; maybe a V6 isnt such a bad idea after all! Its loaded with just about every available option, including power seats, windows, locks, and mirrors, powerful A/C, cruiser control, and a great-sounding AM/FM/CD/satellite stereo with a built-in rear-camera and touch screen. Nice, right? Its all easy to use and youll quickly feel at home once you get in and start driving. And to make this drop-top even more practical, theres a good-sized, so no worries about heading out on a long road trip. The 3.6 liter DOHC V6 engine delivers the kind of power that even V8 powered pony cars couldnt manage just a few short years ago. With 305 horsepower on tap, its lively and plenty quick, and with considerably less weight over the nose, this Camaro is one of the best-handling F-bodies you can buy. The engine bay is completely stock and very clean, as youd expect on a car with so few miles. Looking at the hardware, its unlikely that this car has seen heavy rain, let alone anything harsher. It starts with a nice rumble from the dual exhaust, not quite V8 aggressive but plenty entertaining nonetheless. The 6-speed automatic transmission shifts quickly according to whatever your right foot is doing and the direct injection means this car will run happily on regular gas. Its also got an all-independent suspension, big disc brakes all around, and red-and-chrome 20-inch wheels wearing 255/45/20 performance rubber. A ton of bang for the buck, a reasonable choice for the person who wants performance and style, and a classic look, all in a convertible package. Call today!
