Used Chevy Camaro in PA

Starting out in the late 1960s as an answer to the Ford Mustang, the early Chevrolet Camaro could be had in coupe or convertible form and with six-cylinder or V8 power. As the Camaro went through the '70s, it, like other sporty cars of the era, lost performance and gained more stripes and spoilers. It wasn't until the mid-'80s, when the Camaro once again had some respectable power under the hood along with an athletic chassis that the popular pony car regained its performance reputation.

The fourth-generation Camaro, which bowed in the early '90s, still offered V8 power, a rear-drive chassis, swoopy styling and a choice of coupe or convertible bodies. The V8 cranked out more than 300 horsepower and 13-second quarter-miles in Z28 and SS form. Though an outstanding performance bargain, this Camaro became increasingly aged as the years went by. Sales were weak, and Chevrolet finally pulled the plug after 2002. The Camaro recently returned as a brand new 2010 model, with new looks, a new powertrain, updated technology, and it immediately met huge success.

About Used Camaro Models

Used Camaro models can be found in a variety of generations, from the original ‘60s-70s models, to the more recent ’90 used Camaro models. Running from 1993-2002, the last Camaro generation continued the age-old tradition of performance and style above all else. Initially just a coupe body style was offered in base and Z28 trims, the former coming with a 3.4-liter V6 (160 hp) and the latter with an LT1 5.7-liter V8 (275 hp). Transmission choices included a five-speed manual (V6), a six-speed manual (V8) and a four-speed automatic.

The following year saw the return of the ragtop, while 1995 brought a 3.8-liter, 200-hp V6 for the base Camaro. For 1996 the Z28 had 285 hp and the SS trim was reincarnated, complete with a 305-hp version of the 5.7-liter V8. A midcycle refresh took place for 1998 with a new front-end look and powerful new LS1 5.7 V8s for the Z28 (305 hp) and SS (320 hp). Apart from minor trim differences and a bump in power for the Z28 in 2001 to 310 hp, the Camaro soldiered through 2002 mostly unchanged. Ironically, that last year also marked the Camaro's 35th birthday, which was celebrated with a 35th-anniversary SS.

The final year of the used Camaro, 2002, this model still retains the long hood/short deck pony car proportions of the 1967 original. But there were many changes. With a sloping nose, deeply raked windshield, the Camaro sports a dart-like profile. Alloy wheels with painted surfaces freshen the 10-year-old body style. Up front, a wide, blacked-out grille gapes between narrow, oval headlamps. The hood is crowned by a functional fresh-air scoop, giving this aging muscle car an appropriately menacing look. A distinctive black roof treatment marks the Z28 coupe. The SS-specific, low-rise rear spoiler sets off its tail end nicely. The Camaro Z28 and SS stand apart in a crowd. They are a good performance value. For the price of a much smaller-engined sport coupe or convertible, they offer real, vintage American muscle.
