For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet Camaro RS in Gilroy, California

Vehicle Description

Dubbed "Super Hugger" the second-generation Camaro was developed without the rush of the first generation and benefited for a greated budjet justified by the success of the first generation.  Although it was an all-new car, the basic mechanical layout of the new Camaro was familiar, engineered much like its predecessor with a unibody structure utilizing a front subframe, A-arm and coil spring front suspension, and rear leaf springs.  The chassis and suspension of the second generation were greatly refined in both performance and comfort; all models offered significant advances in sound-proofing, ride isolation, and road-holding.  Extensive experience Chevrolet engineers had gained racing the first-generation led directly to advances in second-generation Camaro steering, breaking and balance.   The 1971 Camaro received only minor appearance changes from its 1970 counterpart. Inside, new high-back Strato bucket seats with built-in headrests replaced the 1970-only low-back seats with adjustable headrests. Production and sales dropped due to a 67-day corporate-wide strike at GM that coincided with the introduction of the 1971 models in late September 1970, along with a continued declining interest in the pony car market fueled by skyrocketing insurance rates for high-performance cars. Rumors of the possible cancellation of the Camaro after 1972 began to surface and were nearly confirmed a year later when another worker's strike hit the assembly plant at Norwood, which was the only plant building Camaros.  This is a stunning example of a 1971 (REAL) Rally Sport Camaro. Fully restored with over $30,000.00 in restoration receipts, the power plant was replaced with a fuel injected 383 stroker-roller V8 teamed up with a Munci 4 speed, power steering, power  front disc brakes The interior is new from carpet to head liner, almost new tires and period correct American mags.  It has had one repaint (original color was Yellow) to Cortez Silver.  This little collectible runs and drive great, fast, dependable, easy to drive and a sound investment.  #03089    Now on display at the home of “over the top cars”CHECKERED FLAG CLASSICS 7743 MONTEREY ST GILROY, 408-847-8788 or 888-625-2774, sold as-is, California buyers are responsible for sales tax and license fees.  Buy with confidence I am a licensed bonded California dealer.   On the web: checkeredflagclassics.com
