This 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS is believed to be a true Rally Sport model, boasting all the expected RS trimmings including round front marker lights and an original RS steering wheel. It remained in driver-quality original condition until 2018 when it was given a frame-on restoration by a longtime owner in Florida, during which the lower rear quarter panels were replaced and the car was repainted in its original color of Cranberry Red. Power is provided by a rebuilt 350 V8 engine backed by a 3-speed Turbo 350 automatic transmission. Now showing 10,649 miles on a replacement factory gauge cluster, this second-generation Camaro RS is being offered from the Exotic Car Trader collection with a clean Florida title and a clean Carfax. Additional restoration details are available upon request.
Largely restored to original specifications, this 1970 Chevrolet Camaro R/S has been lightly modified in a period-correct manner. 15” gunmetal Super Sport wheels wear BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires in a staggered arrangement measuring 215/65 at the front and 275/60 at the rear. The two-year-old Cranberry Red respray displays vibrantly with few to zero notable defects throughout. The lower rear quarter panels were replaced as part of the frame-on restoration and all RS badging was removed. Rally Sport styling cues include a split front bumper and round front parking lights, trunk and chin spoilers, and a license plate mounting location on the passenger’s side of the front fascia. Inside the cabin, this 1970 Camaro RS sports a black vinyl interior with new and reconditioned parts throughout. Driver and passenger sit in later second-generation high-back seats with integrated headrests. New instruments, speakers, a dash cap, and an Alpine Bluetooth head unit were added during the restoration. Mileage at the time of documentation is shown at 10,649 miles on a replacement gauge cluster.
The 1970 Camaro RS was spared the federally mandated impact bumpers and myriad of emissions controls found on later second-generation Camaros. This example is powered by a rebuilt 350 V8 with aluminum heads backed by a 3-speed TH350 automatic transmission. Rear ladder bars were added to increase traction, decrease wheel hop, and improve the rear suspension geometry. All systems were addressed during the restoration, including the power steering system and front disc brakes.
