“The heartbeat of America is today’s Chevrolet.” Or, at least, that’s what GM’s marketing teams told American buyers when the all-new fourth-generation Camaro launched for model year 1993.
Based on the F-body platform, the new Camaro had stayed true to its original 1967 mission as a performance coupe with rear-wheel drive and a 2+2 seating configuration.
And what a performance car it was. Although base-model Camaros in 1995 came with a 3.8-liter V6, higher-level models like the Z28 were powered by a 5.7-liter LT1 350cid small-block V8 that was originally introduced in the Corvette in 1992.
“A true 1995 time capsule,” the seller calls it, adding that the Camaro looks, runs and drives as it should for having so few miles. “Excellent Carfax report. This car is super clean inside and out.”
Among the options are a four-speed automatic transmission, removable T-tops, a performance axle and a keyless-entry system. Perhaps most importantly for a collector, the car is all-original and unmodified. the seller states.
The design language of the fourth-gen Camaro still looks sleek by modern-day standards. A black-painted roof adds to the car’s jet-cockpit styling, and aerodynamic sideview mirrors coupled with an integrated trunk spoiler provide the right design cues to help the car look fast at any speed.
This example is equipped with dual rectangular exhaust tips and integrated fog lamps up front. Inside, tan-leather bucket seats with matching carpeting offset the black dash, which still has its original AM/FM/CD head unit. The seller has included photographs showing the T-tops installed and removed.
The 1995 Camaro was well-received in the marketplace, selling more than 120,000 examples. Some 26 years later, the majority have likely found their way to pastures and junkyards, but a few special cars such as this one have been preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.
It’s safe to say that this 27k Camaro’s heartbeat is still beating strong and healthy. This car might just be the chance that someone needs in order to see “today’s Chevrolet” in all its glory, just 26 years later.
The asking price for is just $12,900.
