Only 970 SS396s were built total in 1972. This one is verified with
Z27 LS3 on the trim tag and a U in the vin. Vin # matching 396 and
4-speed. This one also has desirable RS splint bumper option and
rare combination of a/c and a 4-speed! It was frame off restored.
Lived in Oklahoma then Texas.
EXTERIOR: Very clean body. The gaps are square and flush, straight
as a rifle barrel. No rust or damage. It is a Rally Sport which
includes split bumpers, extended nose and different marker lights.
It also has spoilers and sport mirrors. Repainted a high gloss red.
It is polished smooth. Jambs are slick, weatherstrips were
replaced. Only a few small nicks. Clear windshield. Chrome and trim
looks great. Great stance. Polished aluminum Weld wheels with BFG
tires, fatter in back.
INTERIOR: Very nice deluxe interior. The seats have been
recushioned and upholstered. Carpet looks new, has reproduction
mats. Upper and lower door panels are excellent. Dash pad has a
mild curl. The instrument bezel is wood grain with full set of
factory gauges including tachometer. Original wheel on a tilt
column. It has a stereo in the factory location. Nice factory
console with a Hurst shifter. The plastic trim is very good, has
complete set of seatbelts. Excellent headliner, dome light
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: #s matching big block 402. Stock components-
manifolds, air cleaner, valve covers, distributor, brackets etc.
Factory air conditioning updated to R134 freon. It also features
power steering and power brakes. It looks very tidy, proper and
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Clean metal trunk. I did not find splices in the
quarters. Weatherstrip and mat were replaced. Trunk light
UNDERSIDE: It has been body off the frame restored. You can see the
body bushings were replaced. The front end also looks like it's
been completely rebuilt. All the bushings, ball joints, steering
components look like they have been replaced. The correct dual
exhaust system has been installed with a transverse muffler. The
brakes have been rebuilt, the calipers still have tags on them. The
e-brake assembly is all hooked up. The fuel system was replaced
including the tank, lines and sending unit. The floors look to be
original, they are smooth clean metal with a satin black. Less then
a year ago the leaks were sealed up- oil pan gasket, front crank
seal, power steering hose, shifter seals, output shaft seal, pinion
seal and the rear end was serviced. #s matching Muncie 4-speed. New
Hurst Competion linkage and shifter. 10 bolt posi rear.
Only 970 396SS were made. How many were Rally Sports with a 4-speed
and air conditioning? How many exist today? How many still have #s
matching motor and trans? This was the last year big block Camaro
would ever be made too. Certainly an investment collector car.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a
particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car.
Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the
showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you
will be given a 1 year membership.
