Home » 1997 Chevy Camaro SS 30th Anniversary Convertible – A Perfect Exhibit for a Private Museum
In 1997, commemorating 30 years since the Camaro was introduced to the market, GM added a special 30th Anniversary Limited Edition trim package to the Camaro range. It was only available on the Z28 and SS models. A total of 979 30th Anniversary models were made in 1997, and one of the cleanest of those special convertibles is now up for grabs on eBay.
It’s a big find for any collector because the car is in a pristine, showroom condition without any signs of corrosion, dents, scratches, or discoloration inside and outside. And it has only 1984 miles on the odometer!
Two previous owners stored the car in climate-controlled facilities, which can explain its perfect condition. It has never even seen the rain. The Camaro changed hands about a year ago to be displayed in a large private collection, but now it is on sale again because of the delays in the contraction of the new showroom. You can buy this unique convertible including both sets of keys, original window sticker, rear boot cover which was never used, original bill of sale, and two sets of brand new floor mats. The second set is still wrapped in plastic. The package also includes all sorts of memorabilia and magazines about this car issued back in 1997!
The car is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine producing 305 horsepower + 5 hp from the exhaust resulting in 310 hp total coupled with a manual 6-speed transmission with Hurst shifter and a knob wrapped in leather. The standard SS alteration from SLP includes a lightweight composite hood with functional cold air scoop, performance air induction system featuring high-flow AC filter, rear decklid spoiler, white 16’’x8’’ZR-1 style cast aluminum alloy wheels wrapped in 245/50 ZR16 BFGoodrich Comp T/A tires.
The 30th Anniversary Camaro package includes unique 3D badging with orange outlines and white inserts. The car is all Arctic white with orange striping. A center portion of the front bumper is also white. Inside, the 30th Anniversary plaque adorns the center console. Additional options include a performance exhaust system and Torsen Torque-Sensing limited-slip differential with cast aluminum cover.
As of today, the current bid is $19,100. Honestly, if you are a Camaro fan and a collector, it would be hard for you to find a better example of perfect preservation, a nicer piece of automotive history that looks and feels like it just rolled out of the assembly line.
