1973 Chevrolet Camaro RS Coupe 2-Door Additional Info:

1973 Camaro Sport Coupe. Originally a base 350 sport coupe with manual transmission but now it has an RS split bumper front end. Completely rust free and very clean looking car with nice interior. If you're looking for a show car, this isn't for you. The exterior has ok paint with cosmetic flaws and is slightly predented so you don't have to worry about rogue shopping carts hunting you down in a parking lot!
This car is a driver and for the driver who wants to do some canyon carving. The gearing, overdrive transmission and wide torque curve means it plays nice with others. Very comfy on the highway and in traffic.
Mileage is unknown on the car. I've put several thousand on it but I got with no working speedo. If it makes you feel better, I've rebuilt pretty much everything!

What's good:
Runs awesome! Zero rust! Very reliable and driveable in any situation. Handles like a slot car, loves the tight and twisty curves but also has the legs for long highways drives. I built it to be very driveable and user friendly, but also be a monster when desired. Needs nothing and is ready to be a daily driver, an autocross threat, or a road course warrior. Stops on a dime. It's very comfortable for long drives too!
What's bad:
Has a salvage title. It was rescued from a wrecking yard with left rear quarter panel damage and no motor.
Has new left rear quarter panel.
Paint is driver quality but gets lots of compliments
Why am I selling it? Good question since it's the best car I've ever owned and I love it! But I have to get started on the $$$ to send my son to college
