About “96 camaro”

I bought on 8/10/08 payed $4500 with a 130000 miles lt1 V8 auto. It was my daily driver during spring summer and fall. Until the spring on 2010 when the oil pump went 148000 miles, pulled the motor out. Well since the motor is out its time for some upgrades. In the summer of 2011 was sick of rebuilding transmission so i did a t56 sway and was it worth it! nothings more cooler that shifting throw gears on a z28 camaro !..!
check out the video of my burnout

About “Keeper”

This car has sold on 3/11/11 Here it is the little old schoolteachers pride and joy.After selling her house on Long Island,the schoolteacher could not bring her Camaro to her retirement home in Florida.She had to surrender the car after it had lived a pampered life in her heated garage.After only grinding the pavement for 13800 miles,it was loaded onto a trailor and brought to N.J. for some needed maintenance to the carb and fuel delivery systems.All her filters and fluids were changed and updated as needed.Other than that all her original equiptment is still in place and operating in top form.All the exsisting interior parts were cleaned and detailed and she is ready for her new home.Shw will live a long life from here forward with minimal service and maintenance.

Mods for “Keeper”

The carburator was removed and rebuilt with factory spec parts,re-installed with new filters and vacuum lines where needed.PVC filters,air filter,oil filter were all replaced with factory spec parts.Anti freeze was flushed,all radiator parts cleaned and fluids replaced with fact spec fluids.Other than that the underhood was cleaned and left in the shape it was found,no removing or repainting any of the original workings under the hood.Numbers matching EVERYTHING!!! Runs and drives as new with the exception of the steel belted tires that have a rougher ride that the radials we are used to today,however removing the pristine tires seemd to take away from the cars 1976 appearance.The floors,trunkfloors,the unibody,rockers and all underneath panels are not undercoated and barely painted and may have some slight surface rust,NO ROT NO HOLES NO BODY OR UNDERPANEL REPLACEMENT EVER AND NONE NEEDED PERIOD.Some touchup paint may be required in areas where the paint has worn away,other than that ALL ORIGINAL PAINT AND BODY PANELS IN BETTER THAN AVERAGE CONDITION.She is a time capsule and a great piece of automobile history,because most of this era Camaros that are still around are simply a pile of rust.If you have a daughter or wife that you want to put in a strong,sturdy secure old car,THIS IS IT.If you want to beef up this 305 and still have a fast numbers matching car,I am including the 3 piece rear spoiler and the working Air Induction hood scoop with the sale.I have not installed these pieces to keep this car as original as possible..SOLD IT SOLD IT SOLD IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
