The Camaros run through American culture began in 1967, and in the early 90s, the 4th Generation Camaros were a huge hit for GM. Unfortunately, American tastes for a smaller sports coupe were deteriorating, and as SUVs became more popular, Chevrolet was forced to make 2002 the very last year of production. They did not go out without a bang, however, embodied by this rare and pristine SS 35th Anniversary Edition convertible.

With the LS1 V-8 engine, this SS is an absolute blast to drive, and its obvious the GM engineers wanted the 35th Anniversary model to be the pinnacle of Camaro performance. In fact, the 5.7 L LS1 was the first all-aluminum engine offered in a Camaro since the 1969 ZL-1 and carried a 325-horsepower rating. The SS versions like this example received slightly improved exhaust and forced air intake systems, bigger wheels and tires, a slightly revised suspension for improved performance handling, an arc-shaped rear wing for downforce, and different rear gear ratios for faster acceleration than the Z28 models. Optional 17-inch 10-spoke aluminum wheels ride on OEM Goodyear Eagle 275/40/17 F1 radials to complete the look.

From the carpets to the seats and everything in between, this car looks fresh off the assembly line and promptly sealed in a time capsule. The Ebony leather interior shows no signs of wear and makes one wonder if anyone has ever enjoyed more than five minutes of seat time in this car. Major options include: a six-way power driver seat, power mirrors, power door locks, power windows, and a tilt column complete with wheel-mounted audio controls and intermittent wipers. The factory sound system features a CD changer, an amplifier and eight speakers throughout the interior. The Hurst short throw six-speed shifter keeps the rubber on the road, which is fitting after all, the Camaro legend was built as a big-engine small car, and today, the culmination of that legacy is right here for you to purchase in Corpus Christi.
