I did it again

Recommended Posts

This time I found an 89 Camaro RS Convertible.

Posted Image

The guy was asking $1700 and we got it for $1450. It has the 305 TBI engine with an auto. It runs and drives great and only could use a minor tuneup and tranny servicing. The paint is faded but there are only 2 small dents on the car. The top needs to be replaced badly. The Camaro was next to a house that burned down and the top was burned in areas and some of the paint was overheated.

More pics can be seen here.

I have been wanting another 3rd gen convertible since I sold my 90 Rs to my brother a few years ago. Now I have another to play with.

Looks like a decent starting point for a fun project. Good luck with it, zhawk.

Very cool. 8)

I love the third gen RS. I always wanted to find one with a 5spd. and do the GM performance parts conversion to a 350 on it. I almost bought one when I got my Maserati but the guy wouldn't budge on the price.

I love the 3rd gen verts and will own either an RS like this or an IROC 'vert before I die. Great find, zhawk.

Interesting fact - the 3rd gen Camaro convertible weighed no more than the coupe. The additional weight added from the structural reinforcements was cancelled out by the removal of the huge rear glass.
