Could someone please tell if it is possible for a regular Camaro to be a
"real" split bumper car?? There was a 1972 Camaro in my local car
magazine for sale at a very reasonable price, so reasonable that it was
sold within 2 days after the book came out.
I only talked to the guy one time and I wanted to get more info. on the
car, but the car is sold, and the guy has moved away. But I would still
like to know what kind of Camaro it was??
I guess the guy had it for about 15 years and took good care of it. He
said he washed it almost every day and never drove it in the rain or in
the winter. He had alot of money invested in the car, about $10,000
dollars he said, and then one day the unthinkable happened!!
It was stolen and found about 2 weeks later in the "gang filled area" of
the city. The whole interior had been slashed up, seats and everything,
and the exterior of the car had been spraypainted with black spraypaint
all over it. All kinds of graffiti like pictures of naked women and
swears were spraypainted on the car.
The guy was heartbroken and decided to sell the car for cheap to just
end his nightmare.
Anyway, his ad read like this:
1972 Camaro: 350, 4 bolt, bored 30, Edelbrock comp cam, 10.1 forged 194
fuelies, 700 miles, body nice, needs paint, moving must sell, $1800.
Now what the car looked like from the picture: It was a White Camaro (
with Black spraypaint all over it ) and it had the 2 "split bumpers"
and it had the "banana style" parking lights underneath the split
bumpers. It also had a GRAY grill and it DIDN'T have the "hide-a-way"
So now after all this, my question is, did a regular Camaro come with
the split bumper and banana style parking lights, or could this have
been a Camaro SS model??? I have read that the the Camaro SS, RS, Z28,
and SS/RS models all came with a Black grill, grill extensions, and
hide-away windshield wipers. And the regular Camaros had a Grey grill
and no hide-away wipers like this one had.
Did the regular base Camaros come with a split bumper and banana
lights??? Or was the split bumper probably just added to this one, and
it was nothing more than a replica/fake split bumper camaro??? Thanks in
advance for any kind of info.!!!
