With styling inspirations derived heavily from the Pininfarina designed, 250 series Ferraris of the 1960s, these Second Generation Chevrolet Camaros represented something of a departure from the largely re-bodied Novas of the First Generation cars with their somewhat more refined and testosterone infused interpretation of Italian design etiquette. Of the cars of this period, which suffered with increasing severity, the emissions regulations and diminishing performance of the time, these first year, Second Generation cars are certainly the high point of the period and without question the most collectable and well regarded of the time.
This exceptionally rare 1970 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 is a solid and rust free Texas car, finished in Tuxedo Black with black interior and features: numbers matching 396cid 350hp 4bbl Turbo Jet V8, numbers matching Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, power front disc brakes, factory air conditioning, bucket seats, center console, rear spoiler, front spoiler, 3.31:1 locking rear end, SS wheels, dual exhaust, AM radio, tachometer and SS gauges, and a mere 1,864 units produced in 1970 of this stellar first year big block Camaro.
One of the most rapidly growing segments in the collector car market today, these early second generation SS Camaros are automobiles which have yet to come into their own. For the savvy collector or enthusiast, extremely rare examples such as this valuable numbers matching SS 396 are poised to make serious gains in the coming years!
