Take some extra time looking over this 1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
SS SLP Convertible. It's a rare car that has been treated with the
proper respect in a true classic. Of course, when it's also a
drop-top with a fuel-injected V8 and a six-speed, you also know
this is a classic you're going to take out and enjoy for every
moment you can.
1996 is the first year for the return of the iconic Super Sport
name to the Camaro. And when you factor in the Bright Teal Metallic
and desirable features like the six-speed, this is a rare
convertible that the consignor claims was one of only seven
convertibles with those options produced in this inaugural year (we
have no documentation from GM of these figures). And because this
is unique and special, they made sure everyone could recognize the
large air-channeling hood scoop that was exclusive to the Super
Sport. The odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage,
and the body has the right look of a respectfully driven car that
has averaged under 3k annually. And that's exactly what you want.
After all, you'll love driving it, but its rarity and distinction
mean those are special occasions done with added regard. So the
teal paint shows all the right signs of being the original
application. It retains the kind of gloss and shine that's quite
appealing for a sunshine-friendly convertible. The dark grille and
headlight surrounds join the black convertible top for a tasteful
contrast, and these fourth-gen Camaro have an overall sleek style
that's alluring. So it's a bright drop-top that's also unmistakably
The graphite gray leather is such a tasteful contrast against the
bright exterior paint, so we bet you'll take some extra time
sharing it with the world. And another reason to get out there and
drive is that this is a loaded package. It has power windows, a
power convertible top, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual
airbags, ABS, cruise control, a tilt steering column, power
steering, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need
servicing to blow cold again.) The stereo is now a Kenwood AM/FM/CD
unit with USB and Bluetooth so you can hook up your phone for the
best in modern driving music. The power driver's seat, full gauges,
and well-placed shifter signal to your senses that you're in a
driver's car. And the plaque on the center console that shows this
is a real-deal SS and #1097 of only 2,410 was installed when this
special build went through SLP Engineering.
The stock 5.7-liter LS1 V8 under the hood was rated at 305
horsepower. It is quite hardy, and that might have even been a bit
understated to keep the Corvette's new LT4 as the top dog.
Remember, these SS cars were sold and backed by Chevrolet, but they
were specially finished by the masters at SLP. They added the
forced induction, a performance exhaust, and many other goodies.
Plus, the control provided by the six-speed manual transmission
means the sound and fury of this desirable V8 is always in your
hands. And the power steering, sport tires on Corvette ZR-1 style
alloys, and four-wheel power disc brakes make this a lot of fun to
enjoy with the roof up or down.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet. This is the
convertible to enjoy now and collect for the future. You may never
get a chance at a first-year SLP Super Sport that's so distinct for
such an affordable price again. Call today!!!
