1971 Chevrolet Camaro

  • 350cu 5.7L V8 Engine with 3-speed automatic transmission
  • Adjustable rear air suspension
  • Custom side exit exhaust system
  • Extra parts included in the sale
  • Well-maintained and previously restored

The Appeal

The 2nd generation of the Chevrolet Camaro was a particularly striking one. A key symbol of American muscle in its prime, these powerful V8-engined cars became a common pick for the anti-authoritarian era, and soon roamed America with all manner of customisations and upgrades.

This particular example has a rich history, from its birth in the heart of Detroit to its crossing over the Atlantic - first hitting UK roads in 1976. Subject to an older restoration, the car now boasts a custom side exit exhaust system and an adjustable air-lift rear suspension. Additional new parts are included in the sale, too - in all, we'd say this Mk2 Camaro is a simply excellent opportunity.
