25th Anniversary Heritage Ed: 1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS
The third generation Camaro was produced from the 1982 through 1992 model years and was known as the first Camaro to be offered with fuel injection, 4-speed autos, 5-speed manuals, and hatchback body style. The steeply raked windshield was leaned back at 62 degrees — which violated a previous GM rule that limited windshields to 60 degrees and this was the last car that General Motors built at the long running Van Nuys Assembly plant in California. It is with no degree of irony that the site of the Camaro production is now a strip mall known as “The Plant” with a Starbucks and a Home Depot…signs of the times, I guess. Find 1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS offered for $7200 in Stamford, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS – 25th Anniversary Heritage Edition. 1 of 500 ever made with the green and gold paint scheme, in the last half of 1992 the lasts months this generation of Camaro was made. I am the third owner, clean car – runs and drives perfectly.
5.0 Liter V8 engine paired to a Tremek T-56 6-speed manual transmission, topped with a Hurst short throw sifter, all retrofitted from a 1997 Z-28. The 1992 model never came from the factory with a 6-speed manual, making this Camaro nearly one of a kind! Transmission was rebuilt by A-1 transmission of Norwalk and put in at 133k miles, giving it about 15k miles since installed. 6th gear gets very high mpg highway!
K&N Intake included, as well as a Borla adjustable Cat-back exhaust. Exhaust is adjustable on passenger side to allow for closed, 1″, 2″, and 3″ open exhaust, bypassing the muffler. Currently set at 3″ open, loud and proud. T-Tops are in good shape, no leakage, weather-stripping in good shape. This car has been garaged as previous owner did. Body is in great condition for its age. Some signs of wear and tear however. Small dent on passenger rear fender, some scratched and cracking paint in the front clip. Interior is in good condition. Dash has finally conceded to cracking, as all years of this Camaro do. Could certainly use a new headliner.
Mechanically the only thing I know is wrong is the heat and a/c blower does not work. Replaced the fuse and the switch, probably the blower motor. Brand new Pioneer radio and front speakers.

Didn’t sell last time I suppose. This could be a smart investment if you had the place to put it and waited a little while. 2nd and 3rd gen F-body prices are heating up.
They raised the price from $6800 to $7200 since it was listed last summer. I want whatever they’re smoking.
Amusing that this car wears a little graphic showing a 5 speed shift pattern. which does not match the stated 6sp trans. An interesting Troll. (pic 23 in CL ad)
How is that possible? Seems like the GM legal team could not allow that, right?
