First year secondgeneration Fbodies are becoming rare as we approach the models golden anniversary but MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to announce that we have a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS split bumper coupe. This particular unit was made in General Motors Van Nuys, California assembly plant in April 1970. Its previous owner lavished care and love on this vehicle for the past 39 years This Camaro presents well and drives out strong
Finished in red with black racing stripes and a black vinyl top, this Camaros paint and trim are in overall excellent shape, with a couple of minor blemishes. The paint is lustrous, the vinyl roof has a rich look and the black racing stripes lend some meanness to the cars overall look. The cars glass is clear and intact while its lights are clear and hazefree. The windows and lights are in the same fantastic condition as the paint.
The cars bodywork, including chin spoiler and trunkmounted rear spoiler, is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery appears new and the cars chrome bumpers fit well to the body. There is also an aftermarket sunroof and factory sport sideview mirrors.
This Fbody rolls on Mickey Thompson Indy Profile tires, 50s in the front and 70s in the back. Each tire surrounds a chrome, fivespoke Cragar wheel.
Under the performance hood with the ventilation scoop is understood to be a 383 CID stroker V8 engine with a fourbarrel carburetor, Moroso valve covers and air cleaner housing. It reportedly has 10,000 miles on it. Bolted to the engine is a Turbo Hydramatic 350 threespeed automatic transmission with reportedly 250 miles on it and a 12bolt rear end. Driver convenience features include power steering and power brakes. This is also an A/C equipped car that does not have all its components.
Inside, the black vinyl interior is in overall very good order. The black Strato lowback front buckets (a 1970only option) and rear demibuckets are all in excellent shape while the matching carpet is in very good order, as is the cars headliner. The Grant GT wood Rimblow steering wheels looks very mod while the inner door panels and wraparound instrument panel, with its woodgrain trim, are both in very good order. There are aftermarket ancillary gauges ahead of the shifter one for coolant temperature, oil pressure and amperage, however, the fuel gauge is inop. The center console has aged well and the horseshoe shifter is another heavy touch. Completing the interior are an aftermarket AM/FM stereo with a cassette deck and a remoteadjustable drivers side Sport Mirror.
Most of the engine and drivetrain components were carried over from 1969, with the exception of the 230 CIDsixcylinder the base engine was now the 250CID six. Besides the base model, buyers could select the Rally Sport option with a distinctive nose and bumper, a Super Sport package and the Z28 Special Performance Package.
The new body style featured a fastback roofline and ventless fulldoor glass with no rear side quarter windows. Doors were longer to permit easier access to the rear seat and new pullup handles replaced the old ones, for which the lower button had to be pushed in to open the door. The roof was a new doubleshell unit for improved rollover protection and noise reduction. The base model featured a separate bumper/grille design with parking lights under the bumper, while the Rally Sport option included a distinctive grille surrounded by a flexible Endura material along with round parking lights beside the headlights and bumperettes surrounding on both sides of the grille. The rear was highlighted by four round taillights similar to the Corvette. Aconvertiblewas not offered, making this the only Camaro generation without one. The 1970, often mistakenly referred to as a 70was the first Camaro offered with a rear stabilizer bar.
Inside, a new curved instrument panel featured several round dials for gauges and other switches directly in front of the driver while the lower section included the heating/air conditioning controls to the drivers left and radio, cigarette lighter and ashtray in the center and glovebox door on the right. New Strato bucket seats, unique to 1970 models, featured squaredoff seatbacks and adjustable headrests and the rear seating consisted of two bucket cushions and a bench seat back due to the highertransmissiontunnel. The optional center console, with standardHurstshifter,was now integrated into the lower dashboard with small storage area or optional stereo tape player. The standard interior featured allvinyl upholstery and a matte black dashboard finish, while an optional custom interior came with upgraded cloth or vinyl upholstery and woodgrain trim on dash and console.
The 1970 model was introduced to the assembly plants in February 1970, halfway through the model year. The 1970 model year vehicles are generally regarded as the most desirable of the early secondgeneration Camaros, since the performance of following years was reduced by theautomobile emissions controlsystems of the period and later the addition of heavy federally mandated bumpers.
Competition to this Camaro in 1970 included American Motors AMX and Javelin, the Avanti II, Datsuns 240Z, the newfor1970 Dodge Challenger, Fords Mustang, Mercurys Cougar and Pontiacs Firebird.
