Maybe a 69 chevelle or camaro in the other trailers lol. But even if that car was not performance its in emaculant condition. Some wash wax polish new wheels new fluids and battery and filter and it would run... typical weekend work and this baby would win prizes and turn heads . <3

Huh? That car is loaded with options. About the only thing it doesn't have is the TPI motor. That , imo, makes this car less desireable. If it was a TPI 305 with a 5 speed, it would be killer.

I wouldn't want to put an LS3 in front of that stock trans and rear end.

I couldnt even imagine the smell from the critters that lived under the hood. It looks like none made it in the passenger compartment.

I know of 4 Camaros of this generation in Colorado with 502's in them. All with less than 75 miles on them. Some type of GM build ?? Very cool cars and are all hidden in metal containers ))

Yeah. The carb motor kills any interest for me. And this video is from over a year ago.

You're right. It had the base engine because it was going to be swapped out. The rest of the car looks loaded. My bad.

You couldn't get an LB9 5-speed in '85. First year for that was '87. The hottest motor you could get in front of a 5-speed in '85 was the L69 (5.0 H.O.)

Check his You tube comments, he sold the car to someone else and they got $27,000 out of it. They were probably the one that brought it back to life.

It was not even close to being stored correctly. The battery being connected is probably an indicator that it has a full tank of gas too, and don't expect the brakes to work either. I can imagine every seal and bushing in the entire car is dry rotted. The wheels were probably sold off years ago when someone was in a pinch.

It's like the original owner forgot they purchased the car or something.

Custom builds but what is funny if these were built then is the 3.6L engine in the current Camaro produces only 13 less horsepower than the 502 when it was released in the late 80s. With the weight of the motor I am going to say the V6 is the better performer

A V6 WIN!!!!!
