Bottom line:

If you are looking for a numbers matching very original Camaro, look no further than this RS (hideaway headlights) beautiful example. I’ve enjoyed this car for several years but have purchased others more recently and am reluctantly putting it up for sale. This is an investment quality car, not offered at a “trailer queen price” that can be driven and enjoyed. Additions of modern transmission and disc brakes along with the original power steering makes for an enjoyable driving head turning experience.
