This 1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 SS convertible represents a
significant step back into the muscle car wars. But all you really
need to know right now is this is a pristine drop top with serious
V8 power is available at exceptional value price.
1996 is the first year for the return of the iconic Super Sport name to the Camaro. There's no mistaking this package for lesser cars with its massive hood scoop force feeding the LT1 underneath and the enhanced rear spoiler. A car this mean deserves the an intimidating color like the slick black, and the fact that the factory paint still has such a deep luster tells you this has been treated like a classic since day one. In fact, the only hints of color on the body are the red SS badges on the front fenders and the red taillights. As a modern classic, the body is a carries a contemporary and sleek appearance, still that doesn't mean there isn't some room for some American-style brightwork. But now it just draws attention to the 16-inch alloy wheels (there's an even more attention-grabbing set of Z06-style wheels that come in the sale, too.) Even if you do decide to keep this limited-edition pristine Camaro for an investment, the power convertible top will probably lure you out for plenty of starry night cruises.
Inside this one comes like a Z/28 SS should...loaded. The graphite gray leather buckets in front have nice bolstering to hug you in the corners and are comfortable for all-day drives. The interior shows all signs that this one was babied, and the convertible interior never spent much time exposed the sun and elements. It has power windows, power locks, dual airbags, ABS, cruise control, keyless entry, tilt wheel, power seats, power steering, and air conditioning to make sure you stay cool even with the top down in the summertime. There are some nice upgrades such as the Alpine AM/FM/CD head unit with separate equalizer. It helps give you full control of the thumpin' stereo that utilizes the deep well in the trunk for a professionally installed subwoofer system. There's also carbon fiber doorsills and a chrome shifter knob, but the best way to tell that this is truly a special car is the plaque on the center console installed when this special build went through SLP Engineering.
The original fuel-injected 350 cubic-inch LS1 V8 under the hood was rated at 305 horsepower, but that might have also 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, performance exhaust, Torsen limited slip rear end, and other goodies. The four-speed automatic transmission snaps through the gears and is always ready with a quick downshift. But when you just want to cruise in your Camaro, the overdrive gear allows this to settle into a nice rhythm. Combined with the power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, and this is an easy choice to drive anytime.
Complete with the original window sticker, 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 well equipped for such an affordable price again. Call today!!!
