It's been a while since I've been on LS1tech, but a longstanding member over there for 14 years. There are a few others on there as well that would be fine with vouching for the car who have been members 10+ years as well. I bought the car from a friend and fellow tech user, 12 years ago. For reference, his thread is here.

I'm not looking for any trades and not looking to part anything out or separate anything. I have $22k+ easily in it in motor/paint/tranny/rear end/suspension, and that's not including what I paid for the car itself initially. As you could imagine, I am losing major money, but I am engaged and building a house and just have other priorities.

A few things up front: The car is a 1999 Camaro SS hardtop, verified original with SLP. It is a theft recovery (rebuilt title) and was color-changed from Hugger orange to custom Gunmetal Metallic (by previous owner) and completely repainted back to Hugger Roslunds here in Tallahassee, when I bought it. Doorjambs were done, etc., the engine bay is still gunmetal gray as obviously you can't paint completely with the motor in.

It has 96,683 miles on it, I have owned it since 83k, previous owner had it since 59k. While down for all the major work, it obviously didn't pick up much mileage, and I also had a work truck to drive, so I never put miles on it, though I would daily drive it to work every now and then. I knew the previous owner and the cars history when I bought it 12 years ago, and have most if not all major receipts/records since purchase. Car has always used Mobil 1 synthetic.

Car made 523rwhp, 474rwtq SAE. It's trap speeds are in the 120-124mph range. It has never seen nitrous or any forced induction (but would love some).

Motor: I have the build sheet and custom cam sheet - minimal miles on new stroker motor.

Please be aware that the car is not perfect. It looks damn good, but the car is almost 18 years old and as such has its minor flaws, though was completely torn down for full paint. Here is a brief list of things I feel are "wrong" with the car:

  • Paint chip passenger side door, where someone tried to break in it before I got a garage.
  • Paint chip on the roof.
  • Door ding paint chip on one mirror.
  • Dashboard has the standard f-body crack in it.
  • Fuel level gauge works sporadically (99% sure it's just the sender)
I am trying to be as honest as possible about the condition of the car. I do NOT want a buyer coming here and then being upset with the description, or picking over little details. The price is reasonable, but negotiable. Please note that nothing in this list affects performance, which can be fixed cheap especially if you do your own work.

Asking $14,000 or best offer. I feel this is a very fair price. Please feel free to email with questions, offers, etc.

Pretty killer price for this thing. Hugger orange is a pretty underrated color, dad had a hugger orange rag top SS bunch of years back.
