There is something about the combination of green and gold paint that always looks good on cars. Today’s green and gold pony car is a 3rd generation Camaro (1982-1992) and it shows some wear and tear from years of being driven around from the casino to the pawn shop (and to the place you can buy those sleeveless shirts), but it’s got a 6-speed manual gearbox. Find this 1992 Chevrolet Camaro offered for $7,499 in Griswold, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
From the seller:
cylinders: 8 cylinders
paint color: green
title status: clean
Hard to find stick transmission third gen – originally a T5 car (RPO M39) but was swapped to a rebuilt T56 six speed!
Rare combo, under 500 total hardtops made in Polo Green (WA 9539), a color only available in ‘92. While all 1992’s are the 25th anniversary with badge on the dash, this has the Z03 Heritage Edition option package which includes the stripes and makes it in an even smaller class.
Other mods are limited to a nice Borla exhaust, K&N air filter and I just put on a new high torque mini starter w/ warranty.
Car runs and drives as it should, though it has several of the typical third gen issues – cracked dash and center console lid, trunk motor does not operate and the gauges fluctuate. The t-tops and other seals are good but the headliner and driver side seats have seen better days.
Car looks good going down the road – OEM gold accented rims are in good shape with newer tires.
Does have some love marks – front spoiler scrapes, rock chips, there is a dent on passenger side wheel well/door area, and there is some issue (clearcoat or otherwise) on the decklid spoiler and the roof behind t-tops.
*Two other known issues – my son knocked over a basketball hoop which just caught the brake light assembly. I’m working on sourcing another used unit in good shape to swap on and second the blower fan for the HVAC doesn’t work. Think its just the motor which is easy to swap so I will if time allows.
Car is all there and not rotted or torn all apart like many of these cars, plus the 91-92 cars are noted for reduced interior squeaks/rattles due to improved assembly techniques.
I’ve taken the time to describe in detail as I don’t want to waste time for you or me. See ** below
Looking to go another direction but not desperate to sell, so please don’t bother low-balling.
