Chevrolet announced last March that the Camaro is going away – but perhaps only temporarily. General Motors stated, “This is not the final chapter for the nameplate.” Production ended at the end of December. As part of the going-away party, some sixth-generation Camaro models were sold as Collector’s Editions. The Camaro has been an American icon for decades.
“A fourth-generation Camaro with no rust, original owner, no accidents, always garaged, meticulously maintained,” the listing says.
The gen-four body style lived for 10 years, from 1993 through 2002, and rode on the same General Motors F-body platform as its sibling, the Pontiac Firebird. In the early years of the generation, the high-performance variant of the Camaro was the Z28, which came with an LT1 5.7-liter V8. It could be distinguished from base models by its rectangular exhaust tips. In the case of today’s featured car, power is sent to the rear wheels via a 4L60 four-speed automatic transmission.
The Arctic White exterior looks exceptionally well-kept, and the seller says the car “looks like it just drove off the showroom floor.” A few small rock chips have been touched up on the nose, but the finishes are otherwise reportedly original. The odometer shows 87,999 miles, and the seller says that the car has a few upgrades including a Flowmaster exhaust system, a performance chip, and an alarm. Even the original Delco AM/FM cassette stereo remains installed in the dash.
Included in the listing is a photo gallery of 73 photos. My favorite perspective of this car is the silhouette, which conveys a jet-fighter look thanks to the white body and the all-black cockpit.
This generation of Camaro would be the last before the model took an eight-year hiatus and came back in 2010. In fact, this segment would mark the only gap in the Camaro’s six-generation run. Until now, that is. As the Camaro sails off into the sunset (yet again) it is a reminder to buy one while they last.
The asking price is $15,000. By the way, the retail price of a Camaro Z28 coupe was $21,951 in 1996.
