Real X-55 Super Sport with factory colors. The colors are pretty
awesome I might add. Not to mention it's a 4-speed, 69 Camaro
convertible with air conditioning!
EXTERIOR: It certainly stands out, in a good way! The rally green
is very popular especially when accented in white. The exterior is
slick. I'm walking around the car trying to find something wrong
with it. In happy to report it looks great. It is a solid North
Carolina car. The body panels fit fabulously. Gaps are right, both
doors open and close real nice. Each side is straight. I felt all
along both bottoms and there are no bubbles. 1/4 panels have had
full replacements, not cheaters. Bottom of doors are clean, bottom
of fenders sound like metal when you tap on them. The paint has a
very glossy clear coat finish with a clear reflection. The hockey
stick stripe is painted on with the correct dimensions. Trim is all
beautiful. Up front the bumper, bumper guards, grill, emblems and
spoiler look new. SS grills on the hood look new, mirrors, emblems,
handles look new. Stainless trim is good. In back it has original
antenna, spoiler, the taillights, bumpers, bumper guards are
excellent. The fuzzy window seals have been replaced. Weatherstrips
around doors and top are new. 14 inch Rally wheels have all new
trim and BFG tires.

to great shape. The door panels, upholstery, carpet and dash pad
has been replaced. Console is in excellent shape, has the chrome
ball Hurst shifter and an upgraded set of gauges. Other upgrades
include Vintage Air controls with electric switches, not cables.
Also a retro stereo was put in the factory hole. Instrument panel
is all very good. Other features are deluxe wheel and power top.
