Rockin Classic: 1975 Chevrolet Camaro LT
The second generation Camaro was first sold in 1970 as an upgrade in length, width, power, and price over the outgoing model. Buyers had favored the classic looks of the first generation models for decades, but in the past few years the prices of the 1970-1981 models have gone up. This next example is an original numbers matching survivor that has a high asking price, but could be worth it if the paint is original and still good. Find this 1975 Chevrolet Camaro LT offered for $18,000 in Mobile, AL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
From the seller:
1975 Chevrolet Camaro

paint color: red
title status: clean
This 350, Type LT Camaro is very original and garage kept. Original drive train, all matching numbers! No wrecks or crashes ever. No rust. Power brakes, power steering, 350 engine. Factory AC.
I bought it from the original family who ordered it and purchased it in 1975. The only non-original items are: The AC compressor I will include the old one with brackets, (The AC system has been upgraded to 134a) and the brake lines, rotors, and pads were replaced with hoses, A Quadrajet 4 barrel carb and Edelbrock intake was added for drivability (I will include the original carb, intake, and air cleaner.) New carpet and new tires, new plugs and wires, New radio with iPhone input (I will include the original radio), new fuel line, new battery, and new speakers. This car has been my daily driver for a year now cranks right up and drives great! No rust whatsoever. Car was stored in a garage since its birth. I have all the original paperwork including build sheet, purchase order and all dealer paperwork from 1975 and all receipts from 1975 to now. This car gets lots of attention and is very original. The paint looks good from 15 feet but shows wear and overspray from touchups up close. Could use a sanding and polishing. There is a scratch and very light dent on the driver’s door.
This is the one to get. They are only original like this once!
I have a big book of paperwork and receipts! This car was cared for.
Car runs great with no issues aside from a squeak here and there. Headliner is original and is sagging just a little. Car shifts perfectly. Drives effortlessly. Cold AC and warm heat. Everything works. I hate to sell it but I have 2 other Camaro projects and I am running out of room.

Nice shape. But why?
Theirs a buyer for this and the interior is particularly nice, but a little pricey for the miles? I’d prefer this orange Camaro for not a ton more coin…
