2000 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
History is full of rivalries between two strong competitors like Coke vs. Pepsi, AT&T vs. MCI, Nike vs. Reebok, and Bill Gates vs. Steve Jobs. In almost every case, the competition and the drive to outdo a rival resulted in the production of superior products by both companies and benefited the consumer with high quality and lower prices. The rivalry between the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ford Mustang has run for more than a half a century with similar results. Both vehicles, rear-wheel-drive, 2 plus 2 American sports coupes began their battle for customers starting in the 1960s, and each has had its ups and downs. Except for a Camaro hiatus from 2003 to 2010, each year has brought a new model with features designed to surpass the competition. The seemingly inexhaustible attraction of inexpensive V8 horsepower, sports car road handling, and stylish good looks has permitted the classic American pony car civil war to continue well into the 21st century.
For consignment, a car celebrating the Camaro SS and with SLP engineering add ons thrown in for extra power and looks, and a LOT of it! Our consignor states this is a wonderful performer and has spent most of its 1-owner life doing what Camaros do best...being driven and enjoyed. Ordered by someone who knew exactly how to order a high-performance car...manual windows, manual locks, no T-tops or fancy leather....just pure and unadulterated LS1 power under the hood mated to a 4-speed automatic. Accumulating only 58,719 title verified actual miles in its life and still having its window sticker this car is ready for you to show or safely tuck away and let the value appreciate.
This car screams SS with it all bathed in sinister Black, as if there is any other color. The front grille is slightly different from the standard issue Z28 and sports aggressive venting within the satin black insert. Just above is the SS scooped hood that races rearward to Chevrolet's well known rakish styling on the front glass, and this car is no exception with that windshield leaning way back in this design. On top is more black steel, thus making the car lighter and faster than a comparably equipped T-roof version. On the sides straight steel with well minded gaps creates the front and rear quarters badged with red SS badges on the front quarters. The aerodynamic styling continues on the rear deck where there is a wide spoiler that is very low profile. 18-inch polished chrome wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in 275/35ZR18 high performance blackwall rubber. Dual exhaust peeks out from under the body matching neoprene bumper. All paint is at the deep end of the pool and looks nearly perfect throughout.
A swing of the sexy doors and we get loads of black molded smooth vinyl, some faux rag-paint finish cloth inserts, integrated door pulls with a matching charcoal gray actuator and manual cranks for the windows. Inside, 2 tone Charcoal Black cloth high back buckets showing slight wear that comes from age and very little use have more of the faux rag-paint pattern to the lighter gray inserts and on the bolsters we see nothing but clean supple darker gray broadcloth. A center console undulates by these buckets and houses the shifter for the automatic transmission. Shoehorned in back are two more molded in two tone buckets with not a lot of legroom but they are there. The center of the dash rises to the occasion with a premium sound system including the Monsoon 500 watt AM/FM/CD and climate controls. A beautifully and gracefully arched dash top in front of the driver has all the essential gauges and warnings should something go awry during your performance drive. Charcoal gray carpeting floods the floors and is protected by color matching carpeted mats.
The factory 346ci, 5.7 liter LS1 V8 sits between the fenders and is looking as good as the day it was installed. It is fed by EFI and has a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission on the back. The rear axle is a 10-bolt 3.23 posi-traction setup. All stock and just the way the folks at the Quebec plant intended.
Beautifully preserved with factory overspray still seen on floor pans and fuel tank. The factory dual to single to dual exhaust is on and looking just fab with a muffler delete in place so you can let it rack off and wake up the neighbors. Handling is courtesy front independent Macpherson struts and rear is torque arm with coil springs. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
A quick starter and off to the test track. Here it performed well in all facets with endless acceleration, bias free braking and wonderful handling. All functions were performing as they should on this SS Camaro, and we kept our drive short so as to not rack up too many miles on this example.
A dual advantage to this particular car with its SS bling and the performance looks of the SLP hood, we have a car that not only looks high performance but also fits the bill when you push the accelerator floorward. Ordered by someone who knew how to keep a car as light as possible and faithfully cared for over the years...Gentlemen, start your engines!!!
