This is a split-bumper 1971 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 tribute, and you get to control the strong big block power with four-on-the-floor.
And because you get to enjoy this stout Chevy from the comfort of an A/C interior, you already know your muscle machine fantasies start here.
These earlier examples of the second-generation Camaro already have all the right look to get your enthusiast heart pumping. The factory-correct Cranberry Red is a great color to have for boldness, and this was refreshed later in life to retain a good gloss. You have straight sheetmetal and an overall nice look. It’s nothing too fancy, because this one really revels in being a street machine. After all, the upgrade to the ionic RS split-bumper creates an intimidating front end that it looks like it will inhale the traffic ahead. And the big blackout grille goes nicely with the black racing stripes painted on top of this coupe. The chin spoiler, bright dual exhaust tips, full-width rear spoiler, the Z/28-style gunmetal gray Rally wheels are all part of this Camaro’s confident performance style.
Inside, this coupe shows off even more of its dark side with the factory-correct black interior. It’s a solid presentation that has a correct and clean look throughout. Even the Delco AM/FM radio is still cranking out the tunes. You’ll have to look closely for the upgrades, but they are worthwhile. It’s everything from newer carpeting to a Vintage Air air conditioning system. And of course, the driver is king in this Camaro. You have nice factory pieces like front bucket seats, a center console, and the grippy NK4 sports steering wheel on a tilt steering column. This is joined by the upgraded Hurst shifter that has a bold white cue ball topper to call out to your right hand in all the interior’s darkness.
The engine bay is filled with big block power. It’s a 396/402 cubic-inch V8 rebuilt with a bored .30 over kit. This powerful package also looks quite tidy thanks to a solid investment in plenty of new components. It includes the intake, braking system, alternator, steering box, radiator, complete fuel system with a new gas tank and steel braided lines. That’s what makes for a strong and confident powerhouse. The big block inhales deeply with a Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a powerful rumble from the Flowmaster dual exhaust. You have complete control over this enhanced V8 and its growl thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. When you look underneath, you’ll see a clean presentation that includes investments in a new front end, stainless brake lines, and new shocks. So driving confidence really goes to the core of this coupe. Plus, you’ve got great cruising features, like power steering, power brakes, front discs.
