All the glass, chrome, body trim and emblems are also in as new ( or new) condition and the SS stripes were painted on, just as the original cars had them back in the 70's.

No costs were spared to make this car look as great as it does today.

General discription


This fantastic-looking 1971 Camaro RS/SS with a very powerful 540 HP! 454cui bigblock and TH400 Automatic transmission. This car was completely body-off restored and is in as-new condition. It is a real RS/SS car and its painted in the correct factory, rarely seen Place gold metallic paint with black vinyl top and rare Houndstooth custom interior and factory rally dash with tacho.

A real eye catcher! The car is absolutely loaded with all new parts and components, to much to even start listing here, but we have many pictures of the complete restoration process and all the new components. We estimate that more than 70000,- was spend in work and parts alone. 

The engine and driveline in this amazing looking car are also all new and freshly build. The car is equipped with the biggest engine Chevy ever sold in any factory car, the famous and humungous 454 Big block. The engine was pro build and now puts out an astounding 545hp ! and 535 ft.lbs ( 725 NM !) of ground pounding torque. That power is transferred through a pro-build TH400 Automatic transmission with a new manual shiftkit and 2800 rpm high stall converter. The rear axle with 3,42 rear end gears was also completely rebuilt. This car sounds amazing and is FAST !.

So don't mistake this car with just any nice looking Camaro as its been build from scratch. No cost were spared to make this RS/SS Car look, drive and perform like the best.

The second generation Camaro's are becoming harder and harder to find. Especially the RS/SS cars with there special shark nose and dual headlight design that are in solid and rust free condition like this car. With there fantastically designed body lines and upgraded suspension system ( much better than the gen 1 cars ) these cars are now highly collectible and wanted. We feel the second generation Camaro's are amongst the best looking Chevy muscle cars ever build and designed. 

This car was also build and upgraded with some additional performance parts like an upgraded pro tour style suspension, front power disc brakes and as already stated a fantastic driveline so it wont get much better than this.

But the car was still build and restored with respect for the original style cars and not, like many are today, upgraded with a modern car driveline ( restored). A resto mod ( classic car with modern engine/transmission) might be nice for some, but we feel it doesn't give that extra character that a true classic muscle car brings with a real and original classic performance drivetrain.

And what better classic engine is there than a real chevy 454 big block right ?. And keep in mind that electronics give more isseus in any car than any classic carburetor equipped car, as the are really easy to tune and will not let you down if maintained normally. 

Besides that this car also looks amazing in its original and rare color combination and combined with its original style rally wheels this baby appears to be very original and classic and stylish indeed. 

Besides all that, this car also has a very nice as new interior with rare and seldom seen ( in a sec.gen car) houndstooth bucket interior combined with the desirable rally dashboard with woodgrain finish. If you step into this car it really feels like a step back in time and your surrounded by everything you could even need in a genuine muscle car of the 70's. 

So if your looking for a great car, with everything is already rebuild, new and restored, for a great price for which you cant ever restore it yourself and were you can step in and drive it without having to work on the car every time you take it for a spin. Or were you must invest much time and money in to get it in good condition, well this might well be, just the car you were looking for. 

And its not only great to own and enjoy, but quality cars will always stay highly valuable and in demand and prices for the will keep growing for many more years to come, as the have done so for the last few decades !. So besides the fact you can own and enjoy it, your money is well invested as well.  

So give us a call or email today to make an appointment to come and see and here it live ( as this car also has an amazing sound !) and convince yourself that this is the car that you have been looking for. Believe us if we say that seeing it live is even much better than any video or pictures will ever be able to show you.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
