1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS Convertible – SOLD!
February 2, 2021 Update – we confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
1992 marked the end of the ten-year production run of GM’s third-generation F-Bodies, better known as the Pontiac Firebird and the Chevrolet Camaro. Sadly, this also marked the final year the Camaro would be built in the U.S. until 2015 when production returned to Lansing, Michigan. By this final year, V8 horsepower was finally back to a respectable-for-the-time 230 horsepower when you opted for a five-speed manual mated to the 305 cubic inch mill. That’s exactly what this Polo Green II Camaro RS convertible originally listed in January 2021 on Craigslist in Springfield, Massachusetts featuring a reupholstered interior and a Retrosound radio. The current caretaker indicates this Camaro needs a new top and an oil pressure sending unit for the asking price of $10,000 or the best reasonable offer. The Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the ask falls between this guide’s current #3 “Good” estimate of $7,800 and its #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $14,300. Chevrolet only made about 2,500 V8-powered RS convertibles that year and we’re willing to bet not many of those featured the five-speed manual. While we love the reupholstered interior, the lack of refitting proper headrests was likely a nod to first-generation Camaros. With decent handling, brakes, and power on hand, these second-generation Camaros continue to be an excellent-value-for-the-money entry point into the collector car world.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“Original 305, 5spd, about 100K on it. Body is great, interior has new upholstery and carpet. New retro sound radio. Needs a new Top & oil pressure sensor.”
