Want to go faster? A swap to a more worthy SBC is a breeze and all the linkage and clearances are there to upgrade your tranny, if needed. Luckily, nobody has souped this car up yet and it looks like it is clean and well taken care of. In the midwest, most 'maro's of this vintage are rusted hulks that have seen more drunken burnouts than the Tip-Top lounge.
Here is a view of what looks like a pretty clean cabin and 8-ball shifter. This is in stark contrast to the usual crime-scene interiors you are greeted with when viewing 3rd gen Camaro ads on Craigslist. Enough logical arguments for buying this car, though. How does it make you feel?
Time to make a decision that would would meet the approval of your teenage self. Buy it.
