Description for Chevrolet Camaro 1977

It's with great regret that we are parting with this Camaro, but our loss can be your gain. The car belonged to a family member who unexpectedly died before getting to complete what he started. While not a mechanic by trade, restoring cars was his hobby and passion. He had successfully restored a 55 Chevy and a 62 Barracuda before starting this project. Unfortunately, this car was to be his last restoration project.

When he purchased the car in March 2011, it was just a shell. We don't know whether his intent was to restore the car to original condition or not, but we think that was the goal. We do know he put a ton of time and money into it with no intention of ever selling it. He kept excellent documentation including part receipts, documentation of the BluePrint performance crate (CTC) engine, as well as other documentation of his purchases which totaled a whopping $30K+.
All available installation guides, invoices, notes, and other documentation are included in the sale.

While we wish we could see his project to completion, we aren't knowledgeable enough to finish the job, nor do we have the room to store it when not being driven. We would like to see it go to someone with the same kind of passion and appreciation for classic cars as he had.

It appears that he was pretty much finished under the hood and was just getting started on the interior. The front and back seats are new, as is most of the interior. There is no working sound system as evidenced by the round coffee lid covering the door speaker holes! There is no A/C.

The exterior has some light rust in a few areas and the right front panel above the tire needs a little body work, but overall, the body is in great shape. The doors will need to be balanced, and of course a new paint job is in order. Or not. Some of us like it just like it is, including the hand drawn Tasmanian Devil on each rear panel. In full disclosure, a survey of the notes and invoices (and there is a pile) shows some parts were purchased, but we aren't seeing them on the car - like the rear view mirror and stage control kit as examples. In other words, we aren't selling the car for parts, so we don't guarantee that everything on the invoices are on the car. That said, we think most parts are, but the value you think the car is worth should not be based upon the part invoices.

The car was driven from Montana to Las Vegas in the Spring of 2014 and titled in the fall. The ride was smooth and the MPG was reasonable. The car has been stored in our garage ever since and is started periodically. We noticed it does leak a bit of fluid after its sat for awhile and then started up, but we can't say from where since it needs to be lifted on a rack to see under it. The few times we ran it on the open highway, we clocked 120 and there was still plenty of room under the pedal.
