With an iconic two-color scheme and the sort of performance you wouldn't expect from a 1960s pony car, this Camaro is an impressive sight as it rolls down the roads. Pedestrians stop and awe at the smooth rear curves and sharp fender lines up front. Even you, the driver, are impressed by the mere reflection of your beloved American performance legend as it appears in windows around you. This was what Chevy always meant, the Camaro to be, a stunning work of automotive art that combines just the right amount of beauty and intimidation to make what can only be described as a portrait of American automotive greatness. This example is being sold at Mecum's Orlando sale July 6-9.
A set of exhaust pipes shoot fire as you step on the gas pedal of this high-powered pony car, a monstrous sound that seems to drown out any modern sports cars in the area. In the distance, fellow enthusiasts hear the cutting screams of burning rubber as the 302 cubic inches V8 engine sends all 290 horsepower to the rear wheels. While it's unclear if this is the original powerhouse, the dates match up pretty well, eluding that the engine was at least from the same era as the car. Of course, you rejoice in the knowledge that this V8 was rebuilt just a few years ago in 2019, ensuring its longevity for decades to come. Naturally, with the quality secure, you utilize that power to its fullest extent, noting that sheer force is not truly the best part of the driving experience.
Instead, the M21 manual transmission completes the incredible performance combination of this Chevrolet Camaro. Of course, one could say that these bountiful successful automotive achievements are thanks to the fierce competition between Camaros and Mustangs.

The people were expecting a massively influential, great-looking, and good-handling Chevy sports car, and that's precisely what they got and more. Now you can be the next driver behind the wheel of this vicious American performance icon. Are you ready for this?
