One of Chevrolet's longest running model series, outside of the Corvette, is the performance-inspired Camaro. From its debut in 1967 to compete with the ever-popular Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Camaro was an instant success among car buyers! Camaros showed off shapely lines and a curvy body combining for a mixed look of muscle meets sports car. This recipe stayed true for Camaro through its unbroken run of 35 years until Chevrolet decided to end its production in 2002 with the 4th generation design. To commemorate the occasion, a special 35th Anniversary Editions was created, all painted Bright Rallye Red with Silver Heritage Stripes that turn to checkered flags as they run on the hood and trunk. To ensure collectability, only 3,000 were produced making the 35th Anniversary models very desirable! Of those, only 1,398 were manufactured as convertibles.
We are very excited to have the opportunity to present this 2002 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible 35th Anniversary Edition! It comes to our showroom with just 11,809 pampered miles from new, and fully loaded with factory options!

When seeking cars that may fall into the future classics category, which will hopefully appreciate in value as time passes by, can be a rather difficult task to judge for more modern cars. This should not be the case for this 2002 Camaro 35th Anniversary Edition Convertible! It possesses the right formula for future appreciation and remains in near showroom condition! This example represents one of just 789 drop tops produced with an automatic transmission. Having only been titled once, it was purchased new from Miller Chevrolet in Ellicott City, MD in March 2002 and kept by the same owner until it landed in a private West Virginia dealership collection in 2014 with just 9,235 miles. It has been wonderfully cared for by the past owners and quite obviously garage-kept since new for use only on fair-weather outings.
Today, its odometer reads only 11,994 miles. Included with the sale will be the original window sticker, dealer retail purchase order, owner's manuals, past service records, SLP Performance parts catalog, and clean Carfax report verifying 1 registered owner in Maryland. New Goodyear Eagle F1 tires were installed in 2014. Only a handful of these examples come to the market each year, and the values are already proving an upward climb! This particular Collector's Edition Convertible remains in terrific overall shape! We invite any questions you may have by giving us a call. We look forward to your business!
