(Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 2002 Chevrolet Camaro SS 35th Anniversary Coupe on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 155 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to the Camaro's accident-and-damage-free, extremely-low-mileage Carfax history report, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.)
“Camaro's 35th Anniversary is a once-in-a-lifetime event – but you'll be celebrating something special every moment you're driving this limited-edition SS.” - 2002 Chevrolet Camaro brochure
The 2002 brochure described the car: “It's here. A very special way to celebrate 35 years of honest American performance. Inside and out, there are exclusive 35th Anniversary details. As if all that weren't enough, a Corvette- derived, 325-hp LS1 V8 resides under that SS hood scoop. The 35th Anniversary SS is available as a convertible or T-Top coupe. Either way, it's all Camaro. Thirty-five years young. And still the coolest ride on Main Street.”
Why quote the new-car brochure? Because the black-and-red over black, 2002 35th Anniversary Camaro offered here is effectively a new car… today. Showing just 148 one-owner miles (this is not a misprint), this '02 Camaro SS is like being transported back to 2002 and the head of the line at your local Chevrolet dealership waiting for delivery of this special-edition, high-performance muscle car. (Did they just call your name?)
Note: The adjectives “flawless,” “as-new,” and “pristine” will apply throughout this description to virtually every single surface, every panel, every option on the car. (Please check the car's original window sticker shown in the gallery for a list of every standard and optional feature on the car. The sale also includes all original owner literature and accompanying sales documents from Sundance Chevrolet.)
The Bright Rally Red-and-black exterior of the Camaro is truly without fault. Body panels, glass t-top panels, SS badging, optional ZR1, 17-inch chrome wheels with “SS” center caps, Good Year® Eagle 40-series performance tires, SS-specific, rear-deck spoiler, and dual exhaust outlets all share one thing: factory-new, blemish-free finishes. This Camaro has been properly stored and maintained to keep it in just-off-the-transporter condition. The car was optioned without the somewhat overdone stripes and added glitz. As a result, this is a “pure” 35th Anniversary Camaro in a highly appealing color combination.
Inside the car, the same condition statement applies. Leather seat upholstery, door trim, all switchgear, the dashboard, cabin glass, cargo area, gauges (including the 160-mph speedometer and 5,500-rpm-redline tachometer), steering wheel, audio system, 6-speed Hurst® short-shifter, and “35th Anniversary Chevrolet Camaro” badge is pristine. Only the slightest hint of use can be seen on the front-passenger carpet. Perhaps not surprisingly, the car smells new, too.
Under the hood, the 345-horsepower, 5.7-liter, LS1 Corvette-sourced, original V8 engine (with factory-added SLP® performance tuning) commands a pristine (adjective repetition noted) engine bay. Nothing is out of place; nothing has been added; everything is factory-original. This is exactly the sight that would have greeted you if you'd been first in line at the dealership back in the day, and popped the hood.
While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this collector-grade Camaro SS in detail from every angle, including from below, we absolutely expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
As to this model's collectability: “Hagerty Valuation Data Specialist Greg Ingold sees the 1996–2002 Camaro SS as having the best collectability outlook….” of the fourth-generation cars adding: “On the whole… the Z28 and SS offer affordable V-8 rear-drive tire-burning fun for younger enthusiasts on a budget, and there are enough rare or high-performance special editions to get the attention of more dedicated collectors.” Of course, as Motor Trend concluded in a period Camaro-Mustang comparison, there's another compelling reason why this car is so desirable: “What we say won't matter to many of you, because there are die-hard Ford fanatics and Chevy lovers out there who wouldn't be caught even looking at the other. But here's our one-sentence summary: The Camaro SS is better at making speed….”
We envy the collector who adds this very special Camaro SS to their stable.
