2001 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
2001 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
You don't have to look very hard to find the muscle/pony car DNA in the Camaro. It's there in spades: a rumbling overhead-valve V8 and a stick-shift tranny, packed in a low slung, distinctly American 2 plus 2. Just like the Z28's and SS's of 30 years ago. No gizmo-actuated variable-valve timing, no overhead cams, no independent rear suspension, no BS. The honest-to-quarter-mile muscle car goods, and one of the last examples on the market that can make the claim of being a true descendant of what it's been from, well, its beginning back in '67.
A 2001 version of the Camaro graces our halls of Classic Auto Mall. This one announces it has a mere 110,529 miles, a 3.8 Liter V6 engine, in beautiful red, and it's a convertible. Just these facts should be enough bait you to come in and buy it right off the floor, if you need more…read on!
Bright Rally Red covers this car, and it is topped with a black convertible that operates smoothly and efficiently. Paint is showing some orange peeling (a full repaint was done at some time in the past), and heat damage, particularly around the canvas top trimmings. From its smooth hooded front, wildly raked back windscreen, to its integrated spoiler in the rear, the great curvaceous bodacious lines of this car appear as it is constantly moving forward, only it is actually standing still! The polished 5 saw blade spoke 16” wheels give it away though because they would be spinning if this was really moving…I think?!
Flip the top down with the push of a button, and you will have the reveal of two tone light bolster and dark tan insert in tuck and roll broadcloth high back buckets, and tan carpet you can wriggle your bare toes in. The cloth buckets have just the right height to grab you and this is important because when you put your boot into it, you'll be creating a monster, unleashing all the power of the V6. 2 plus 2 two-toned broadcloth to match the buckets in the rear also, although a bit cramped, you can still pile that other couple in for the double date. In the very center of this tumultuous sea of interior we note a console automatic shifter. Lots-o-convenience options abound like power mirrors, power locks, power steering, power brakes, AM/FM/CD Bluetooth phone and iPod capabilities, premium speakers, A/C, power top, if you are feeling feisty. Deliciously 50 shades of tan all around interior-wise.
Seated within the engine bay, and under the low slung hood is an original 3.8 liter V6 that pumps out 200 horses. This is attached to a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission. It sports EFI and is original to the car.
Quite like the day it left the dealership save for some surface rust that has gathered on the straight steel parts of the suspension, but quite unremarkable. Nary even a water spot, just some overspray on the floorpans says volumes as to how and when this car was driven or other not driven. Independent front suspension with coil springs is noted and on back a torque arm and coil springs. Power disc brakes are noted on all 4 corners underneath as well.
This car started right up and drove like a V6 champ. Smooth power, good handling and all the interior convenience functions were working just great. Bias free panic stopping and driving with top down was quite enjoyable.
How about a throwback to the original Camaro with plenty of power, classic good looks, low mileage, and plenty of conveniences PLUS it's a convertible. Get into Classic Auto Mall's halls quickly as this one will fly off the shelves, I just have a feeling!
