Black Camaros will always be in demand, and this 1970 Camaro definitely has the right upgraded look with matte stripes. And it's more than just skin deep, too, with a great-running 350 under the hood, a classic black bucket seat interior, iconic split bumpers, and a ton of potential to be the Camaro you've always dreamed of owning.
It's safe to say that we like the way this Camaro looks. A lot! It's got the right stance, the right color, and the overall look of the second-generation cars is aggressive yet refined. We're also glad to see this one has been upgraded to a set of RS style split bumpers, because, well...there's nothing like a split bumper second gen. Finish quality on the vivid gloss black paint is good, with a great sheen that's especially noticeable on the contrasting matte Z/28 stripes. It's a very straight car, as it would need to be being black, so the reflections in its surface aren't distorted and panel alignment is very good. Out back, a lower Z/28-style deck lid spoiler has the right look and is also wrapped in stripes, giving it a very cohesive look, and it's great to see a standard flat hood instead of a cowl-induction setup that wouldn't be correct anyway. Nice chrome bumpers and neatly detailed taillights make the car shine in the sun and it wears Z/28 badges in all the right places. This is certainly a Camaro with the right dark look.
The black interior is finished to stock specs, including the bucket seats, which wear recent seat covers. Fresh carpets, reproduction door panels, and a very clean dash pad all contribute to the recently finished look, and with a minimum of aftermarket equipment, it looks very much like it would have in 1970. The factory gauges are in good original condition and they're joined by a set of Auto Gauge dials for oil pressure and coolant temperature under the dash. A center console is also a nice find, you'll note that this car carries a great-shifting 4-speed manual transmission with a Hurst shifter and cue ball knob. The factory AM radio is still in the dash, leaving you the option of going all stock or adding something great, but the rest of the interior is 100% business. Open the deck lid and you'll find clean trunk with a correct mat.
The smart-running 350 cubic inch V8 looks fresh in its bright Chevy Orange paint, and it was clearly built for combat. Set up with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and matching intake manifold, a Lunati cam, Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads, and an HEI distributor, it cackles and snarls but remains eminently drivable on the street. There's a big aluminum radiator up front, long-tube headers, and a beautiful dress-up kit that includes a set of finned valve covers and a lot of chrome. The aforementioned 4-speed gearbox shifts crisply and powers a sturdy 12-bolt rear end in the surprisingly well-detailed chassis. Flowmaster mufflers sound awesome and the stance is exactly right, aggressive but not so low that it scrapes and bangs over every little bump. There's also a new gas tank out back and a set of gorgeous SS wheels wearing 215/65/15 white letter radials.
Super clean, very potent, and totally sorted, and a modern looking dark side exterior, this is the kind of Camaro you would have built for yourself. The fact that it's also so nicely priced is only icing on the cake. Call today!
