In 1966 Mustangs were flying out of Ford showrooms, and Chevrolet needed an answer. After many secret meetings, and covert internal press events, engineers unveiled the official name for what had been known up to this point as XP-836.
Camaro was the chosen namesake, and immediately the question became but what does it mean? This question has no official linguistic answer, but as Chevrolet marketing people would answer It's an animal that eats Mustangs! For consignment a nice slightly modified Chevrolet Camaro from its second year of offering to the public. With a 383ci stroker V8, ported heads, a TH350, a B&M shifter and a manual valve body, some nice exterior paint, and a clean undercarriage and ladies and gentlemen we have a great example, slightly custom. Exterior Leading the way is the RS trim hidden headlight egg crate grille with a reverse scooped hood just above and a chin spoiler below.A mustache thin body matching bumper leads the way to a well applied Scarlet Red background that provides the foundation for paint on this rust-free car. We do note some chips and touch ups, particularly on the rear color matched bumper. Wheel well edge trimmings provide a frame for the deep dish 15-inch rally wheels on all 4 corners. Well preserved chrome is on all the trimmings which include window surrounds, door edges, mirrors, and wipers. On the back we see a small spoiler and rectangular taillights for this first gen iteration.
A side view gives you a great view of the awesome stance of this car with its larger rear tires and slightly jacked up suspension. Truly a wild pony car ready to gobble up Mustangs at any moment. Interior Ivory bucket front seats covered in vinyl, and a rear bench seat are in used but good condition. Slightly faded black carpeting covers all floor surfaces and above is a black headliner presenting with wrinkles and a few split seams.
A late model steering wheel frames 2 deep round gauges clusters on the angled in dash front. This panel is framed by smooth chrome trimming and has a trio of aftermarket gauges hanging from the bottom of the panel. The door panels, with their padded ivory vinyl covering show some soiling and have a molded in swooping armrest and chrome trim following suit.
Chrome handles litter the ivory and finishing the bottom is nice black carpeting. Sitting in the middle of the hump is a B&M shifter with a bright red topper ball. Drivetrain Under the hood is a gleaming consigner stated 383ci V8. This mill is stuffed with a Crane. 510i/507e camshaft and is topped with ported iron heads with Competition Cams titanium valves and Crane roller rockers.This mill has an Edelbrock Victor Jr aluminum intake and a single 4-barrel Holley 750cfm carburetor flowed to 823cfm feeding it. A 3-speed automatic TH350 is on the back and sports manual valve body and a 3800rpm stall converter with anti-balloon plates in case you decide to add some giggle gas. Waaay back is a 10-bolt rear axle weight in with a 4.11 ratio and Positraction. Undercarriage All very clean with no road dirt, everything appears as it has been well taken care of and finished in chassis black. Independent coil springs for the front and leaf springs with traction bars for the rear, and drum brakes on the front and rear. Flowmaster provides the exhaust and mufflers which feed from silver finished snake like headers. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and a bit of time to warm up, and we were off to the test track. All functions were working at the time of this test track tool around, and it is a satisfying car to the eye. With some modifications, a clean engine bay, nice interior, and rust-free undercarriage this is a goer and a shower.
Great color, excellent brightwork, nice stance and hidden headlights. That sums it up for this car whose namesake means it eats Mustangs.
