Considered an American pony car, the second-generation Chevrolet
Camaro was produced from 1970 through the 1981 model years. It was
longer, lower, and wider than the first-generation Camaro and was
no longer available in a convertible. GM engineers even claimed
that the second generation is much more of A Driver's Car than its
predecessor. The chassis and suspension of the second generation
were refined in both performance and comfort by providing
significant advances in soundproofing, ride isolation and
roadholding. The 1970 model was introduced to the assembly plants
in February 1970, halfway through the model year and this caused
some people to refer to these Camaros as a 1970 ½ model. This
specific model year is often regarded as the most desirable of the
early second-generation Camaros. A new body style featured a
fastback roofline and ventless full-door glass with no rear side
quarter windows. Doors were wider to permit easier access to the
rear seat, and a new pull-up handle replaced the old door handles
which had a lower button that had to be pushed to open the door.
The 1970 Camaro was the first to be offered with a rear stabilizer
bar, but the four-wheel disc brake option was dropped. For the
interior, a new curved instrument panel featured several rounds
dials for gauges and switches that were presented directly in front
of the driver while other controls were moved to side. New Strato
bucket seats, unique to the 1970 models, featured squared-off
seatbacks and adjustable headrests. Highlighted here is a freshly
restored 1970.5 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 RS. Presented with Tuxedo
Black paint and an original styled vinyl top, this Z28 is
absolutely mean. The exterior is gorgeous, with chrome bumpers and
trim contrasting with the gloss black paint. Powering this beast is
a 454ci V8 that has been bored .30 over, which is estimated to have
around 600HP. It's been updated with rectangular port heads and a
.600 lift solid cam. Paired with a 4-speed Muncie M21 and 12 bolt
rear end with 4.10 posi, this Camaro is meant to be driven. Other
updates include 3-inch Mandrel Bent exhaust, new rear spindles and
springs which have given this Camaro an even lower appearance. The
interior has received the same treatment as the exterior and is
completely brand new including a new dash and new glass throughout.
The stock looking houndstooth inserts on the front buckets and rear
bench make this interior as iconic as the exterior. Overall, this
interior is pure bliss. While this Camaro may appear to be a dark
horse, it truly carries the heart of gold that Chevrolet and the
Camaro name bring to the automotive world. With plenty of power
under the hood, this vehicle sounds and drives like a dream. This
Camaro is genuinely a one-of-a-kind find. Please call if interested
or e-mail specific questions. Thank you for looking.
