For Sale: 2002 Chevrolet Camaro in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28/SS 35th Anniversary Convertible

History is full of rivalries between two strong competitors like Coke vs. Pepsi, AT&T vs. MCI, Nike vs. Reebok, and Bill Gates vs. Steve Jobs. In almost every case, the competition and the drive to outdo a rival resulted in the production of superior products by both companies and benefited the consumer with high quality and lower prices. The rivalry between the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ford Mustang has run for more than a half a century with similar results. Both vehicles, rear-wheel-drive, 2 plus 2 American sports coupes began their battle for customers starting in the 1960s, and each has had its ups and downs. Except for a Camaro hiatus from 2003 to 2010, each year has brought a new model with features designed to surpass the competition. The seemingly inexhaustible attraction of inexpensive V8 horsepower, sports car road handling, and stylish good looks has permitted the classic American pony car civil war to continue well into the 21st century.

For consignment, a 35th anniversary car celebrating the Camaro SS and with SLP engineering spices thrown in for extra power and looks, and a LOT of it! Our consignor purchased this car new in May of 2002 and opted to have the SLP center mount exhaust added on along with the heavy duty Auburn posi unit and has spent its life being cared for and safely tucked away. Accumulating only 5,309 verified actual miles in its life and still having its window sticker and all SLP literature, build sheet and all paperwork from new as well as the original 2nd set of keys that succumbed to a garage fire, thankfully the car was stored elsewhere at the time. Ready to be shown and enjoyed or tucked away as an appreciating investment, regardless of your choice, this car fits both bills perfectly.

Exterior
This car screams SLP and anniversary options with it all bathed in Bright Red. The front grille is slightly modified and has dual wide white racing stripes starting at the bottom of the front spoiler and moving towards the windshield where at the hood scoop it splits and fades into a checkered flag. The grille is slightly different, and an SS badge is neatly put in the very low center of said grille. Chevrolet is known for their rakish styling on the front glass, and this car is no exception with that windshield leaning way back in this design. On top is a nice black canvas convertible, all clean and sporting a rear glass window. On the sides, straight steel and high impact plastic with well minded gaps creates the front and rear quarters, (badged with 35th anniversary badges BTW!) and doors. The wide stripes continue on the rear deck where there is a SS specific wide spoiler that is very low profile. 17" 10 spoke SS specific aluminum wheels are on all 4 corners. Dual exhaust peek out from under the center of the body matching neoprene bumper. All paint is at the deep end of the pool and looks showroom perfect throughout.

Interior
A swing of the sexy doors and we get loads of Ebony molded smooth vinyl, integrated door pulls with a matching charcoal gray actuator and plenty of power toggles to play with. Inside 2 tone gray leather high back buckets showing slight wear that comes from age and very little use have the SS 35th Anniversary logo embroidered into the headrests and on the lighter inserts we see nothing but clean supple leather. A center console undulates by these buckets and houses the shifter for the automatic transmission. Shoehorned in back are two more molded in two tone buckets with not a lot of legroom but they are there. The center of the dash rises to the occasion with a premium sound system including AM/FM/CD (an optional 12-disc CD changer is mounted in the hatch area), climate controls, and an ASR, (traction control), button. A beautifully and gracefully arched dash top in front of the driver has all the essential gauges and warnings should something go awry during your performance drive. Charcoal gray carpeting floods the floors and is protected by color matching carpeted mats.

Drivetrain
The factory 346ci 5.7 Liter LS1 V8 sits between the fenders and is looking as good as the day it was installed. It is fed by EFI and has a Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission on the back. The rear axle is a 10-bolt 3.42 with the optional Auburn posi-traction setup. All stock and just the way the folks at the Quebec plant and SLP intended.

Undercarriage
Beautifully preserved with factory overspray still seen on floor pans and fuel tank. The factory dual to single to dual exhaust is on and looking just fab with its SLP center mount outlet. Handling is courtesy of front independent Macpherson struts and rear is torque arm with coil springs. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter and off to the test track. Here it performed well in all facets with endless acceleration, bias free braking and wonderful handling. All functions were performing as they should on this SS SLP Camaro, and we kept our drive short so as to not rack up too many miles on this example.

A dual advantage to this particular car with its anniversary edition bling and the extra performance of the SLP package we have a car that not only looks high performance but also fits the bill when you push the accelerator floorward. Street Legal Performance!
