Just dropped my car from $89,500 to $72,000 - That is a HUGE DISCOUNT of $17,500.00
1968 SS Camaro convertible with too many upgrades to list, so I will show you pictures and try to describe the most desirable upgrades to date. Had a 2 year frame off restoration before I purchased it. Brian at Www.screaminperformance.com did the restore and knows the vehicle inside and out. My car is shown on their website in two ways: 1. The YouTube video on the landing page shows a blue convertible camaro on a dyno, turn it up and enjoy. 2. In the gallery tab you will see 600 photos of the restoration under the title TC’s vert
The engine is a 2007 LS2 6.0 and has 450 horsepower and automatic transmission. It has original power windows. Power convertible top. Power steering. 4 wheel Baer disc brakes. Fuel injection and a high performance fuel pump for up to 700 horsepower. In the past 3 months I spent $17500 on Brand new 4 link suspension, took out leaf springs and shocks to add adjustable coil over shocks in the front and back cost $7500, newly rebuilt rear differentials $2900, newly rebuilt transmission $1900, new Dual air intake snorkel $2500, new axle seals and new power steering pump, alignments on new suspension and wiring and cpu tune up. Seats were upgraded along with upholstery and soft white top. High performance Electric fans and aluminum radiator, Dynatech exhaust and phenomenal headers. Upgraded to street fire coil packs, high performance spark plugs, wires and high temp blue braided wires covers. Upgraded instrument panel and gauges. I have a brand new radio for the car, it looks like an original camaro radio but has blue tooth technology. No speakers currently, I did not have any installed because I love to hear the motor.
Paint is an 8 out of 10 because this is a car that is driven frequently. I have seen cars with the upgrades I have listed for $99,000 to $120,000 I am saving the 12% consignment fees charged at gateway classics which had my car listed by the previous owner for over $90k without the new pro touring restomod upgrades of $17,500 that I just added.
Lastly, I have the binder that was given to me from the previous owner that had the car for 24 years, it has receipts for almost every upgrade and improvement made to the car, including where the work was completed. It is a very detailed book that shows the history of the car for reference, plus it is just fun to look through. If you tally or add up the receipts you will see over $120,000 plus in invested in this 51 year old classic.
