1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS Additional Info:

1970 is a sweet spot in the history the Camaro. It built on the success of the first-generation cars with lessons learned on the street and on the track. That success also justified a bigger budget and reasonable time line for the its development. The result was an all-new car that is longer, lower, wider and considered much more of a driver's car. Also, as the 70's progressed, tightening emissions regulations and a fuel crisis put the squeeze on power... outputs. Check out this 1970 396 RS and see if you think that parked inside your garage would be a sweet spot for it. This car was delivered as a paint code 45 and trim code 723, Green on Green car. It has received a very nice repaint that shines brightly and looks fantastic. Bold white Rally stripes are always a good look on a Pony car, and on an RS are almost a required. Up front, the RS option is immediately identifiable by the split front bumper. That put the grill out there front and center with its bright accents and also the SS badge hinting at the 396 lurking behind it. Below those sharp looking chrome bumpers, a chin spoiler reaches for the ground, and above them, chrome trimmed lights balance the look out nicely. From the side, the Green Mist paint really catches the light showing off the long, low and lean look of the body. The back of the car also looks clean and awesome with the Rally stripes continuing over the short trunk ending nicely on the rear spoiler with simple round taillights and a chrome bumper completing the look. Open the new, wider door and you will find the Green interior that has darker and lighter shades giving it a bit of a two-tone effect. A nice woodgrain instrument panel complements it well accented with a black steering wheel and lower dash panel. That long door panel provides a long armrest for comfortable cruising and the new Strato buckets, unique to 1970 models, feature squared-off seatbacks and adjustable headrests. That new curved instrument panel has Round dials that sit oriented for easy visibility for the driver, and there is an auxiliary Sunpro tach mounted off the right. The black steering wheel is a two-spoke SS wheel, also with a woodgrain accent, and a white shift knob for the 4-speed manual trans is just begging you to stir it around. It is a very nice looking interior and everything appears to be newer with little or no wear present. Open that hood and you will find a nicely detailed out, make that a virtually spotless, engine bay with that precious 396 nestled down inside it. The Chevy Orange of the engine is fresh and bright and looks particularly good with the orange ignition wires complementing it as well as the orange in the decal on the chrome air topper announcing the engine as a 396 Turbo-Jet 375 HP with the crossed racing flags. You gotta love the valve covers of a big block Chevy engine, especially when they are chromed up and looking as good as these. There is a power steering pump and a power brake booster working the front disc brakes that ensure good stopping power. The underside of this car is as nicely done and detailed out as the topside is too. Everything is neat and clean and well maintained. The car sits on BFGoodrich Radial T/As mounted on 5-spoke alloys all around. Call or come on down and check out this first of the second-gen Camaros. You may decide that its sweet spot would be sitting in your garage rather than in our showroom.
