Car description


  • This car was done with only the best parts from top to bottom. Built by world famous SEMA builder Tom Argue Designs from 2012-2014. Car started off as an immaculate, Southern CA original RS 4 speed convertible that was one owner up until 2009. It was purchased by current owner for $57K in 2012 and then $241,488 in parts and labor were spent on it since making it the ultimate Pro Touring Convertible that handles, performs, brakes, and has all the amenities of a brand new car. Car was stripped down to the bare frame, it was walnut shell blasted and powdercoated, with Heidts front and rear suspension systems fitted to it. Engine is a brand new Mast Motorsports Corvette LS3 all aluminum 6.0 V8 with an impressive 550 HP (with a nice lopey idle) and 550 Ft Lbs of torque which transmits power to a Tremec T56 6 speed manual transmission with super smooth hydraulic operated clutch, mated to a custom made speed balanced to 200 MPH aluminum driveshaft and posi traction differential with 3.73 gears that is fully built. Car is running 2100 RPM at 70MPH.Brakes in the front are Wilwood 12' diameter disc with 4 piston Dynalite aluminum calipers and rear is 12" with Corvette C4 calipers. Parking brake works properly and will hold car in neutral on an incline. Car stops on a dime and gives you 9 cents change! Car consistently gets 23-27 MPG on the freeway. It has plenty of power where you don't need to downshift to pass anyone. Headers are custom made ceramic coated with a 3" collector, then bolted up to a custom made 3" X pipe and Magnaflow mufflers. It does not resonate in the car!! 3" mandrel bent tailpipes exit through the notched rear valance panel with stainless steel 3" rolled polished tips. Whole exhaust system was removed after being built and hi temperature coated inside and out to keep the heat in the system and to keep it from rusting. You can easily talk on the phone in the car or to the person next to you with out raising your voice. Engine, transmission, driveshaft, rear end differential, and suspension in this car were all carefully planned out to handle the 550HP+ safely with no adverse drive-ability issues!! Every nut, bolt, mount, etc is new on this car! No expenses were spared. It was built to keep in the family forever with an open wallet. Wheels are one off, custom made 18x8" front and 18X10" rear Budnick polished billet with BF Goodrich G-Force tires 245/40ZR18 front and 275/40ZR18 rear with 3600 miles on them. You can make this car as low or as high as you want it with the adjustable coil overs. Rear shocks are also adjustable for rebound for launching. None of the suspension, exhaust, or anything for that matter rubs or vibrates against anything else. Everything is completely sorted on this car so you don't have to do a thing. Nothing leaks or seeps. Hop in and drive this anywhere!. Alternator, power steering pump, steering rack, air conditioning compressor, etc also all new. Everything mechanical on this car is new and the best of the best. All wiring soldered, everything well thought out and planned properly. All gauges are Autometer and work perfectly and are accurate. Seriously, you could not build this car yourself for what I am selling it for. It is the best of the best from top to bottom. It has been OCD maintained and detailed with an open walletits whole life by a mature retired collector in his 60's that is going through a nasty divorce. Car drives straight down the road with ease, is comfortable, smooth, has no rattles, leaks, squeaks, wind noise etc. German made Hartz cloth top fits like a glove and top is power. Suspension feels tight and car does not feel twitchy at all and it does not bottom out over bumps. I am very picky of what I choose to deal with and my 100% positive feedback from those that have purchased from me over the past 11 years here on eBay reflects. Pride of ownership is evident everywhere on this beauty. This was a CA, garaged car since new. The Viper Blue paint on the laser straight body is amazing. Gaps are perfect. There is over $35K just in the body and paint on this car!! All steel cowl hood and custom valances. Door handles and side markers shaved. Custom billet grills with flip up headlights. Tucked rear bumper. Billet gas cap. Dozens of hand fabricated, one off custom parts. Rockers and bottom of the car have been waxed and detailed since finished. Comes with a fitted indoor car cover also for keeping the dust off the car when in garage. You will not find a cleaner Camaro that is this updated to be like a new car. Buy It Now for $129,900 and I will pay for the cost of shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states, or up to $700 towards the cost of a plane ticket for you to fly out and drive this beauty home and enjoy a little vacation in sunny, warm Palm Springs, CA that averages 100 degrees during the month of August.

Most of these first generation Camaro convertibles of this body style have been ruined. Only hand washed and waxed since finished and it shows!! Paint looks wet when it is dry. Look at the refection's in the paintin my pictures below. It looks, starts, runs, smells, and drives like new. Engine box has been smoothed and all wiring hidden.

Suspension and steering is tight with no wandering or looseness, no clunks when going over bumps, brakes like new, immaculate interior and underside. Never eaten in, smoked in, spilled in, or interior soiled, and even still smells like new. . No worn down seat upholstery or foam here. Not even any wrinkles on the seats.

Power window and top buttons are also housed in it. 6 speed manual shifter shifts the T56 Tremec transmission like butter. Dash and door panels have all been done in black with blue stitching. There is a custom black with blue stitching top boot too that covers top when down. Power top and all functions work like new. Sound system sound incredible. Under carpet, dash and inside doors all sound insulated with Dynamat. Inside car is very quiet with top up. A great amount of time was spent fitting everything to perfection so that there is no wind noise or rattles. No pets or young children have ever been in it. No rips or stains anywhere. There is not a nicer, Camaro convertible available. I can honestly say that, because there are none other like this car anywhere for sale.

There is not a nicer, faster, more sophisticated car available for under $150K!! It is literally like driving a brand new car with a classic 1968 Camaro body.

  • In my 24+ years in the automotive business, I have rarely seen, owned, or driven a nicer built and well vehicle that is so fantastically built and taken care of. I have owned over 1000 Mustangs, Shelby's, Big Block's, Boss's, Pantera's, Saleen's, Corvette's, Camaros, Roush's, Cobra's. Lightning's etc, mostly collector models, and rarely see a vehicle (of ANY type) kept in this condition.Suspension and steering is smooth and not bouncy or twitchy when driving down the road, or on the freeway and handles like it is on rails. Does not wander when on freeway. This Pro Touring Camaro RS is appraised and insured for $250K on a collector car policy and it is $1371 per year for full coverage and agreed value of $250K. Most insurance companies will do the same for you and insure it as a collector vehicle and it is only going to continue to climb in value if kept in this condition. Be sure to check out my other auctions for a Coyote Swapped SVT Cobra Mustang and a 2K mile Barrett Jackson Shelby GT.

  • Any questions, please message me and I will respondpromptly. I am selling this car for a friend who is going through a divorce with his wife of 35 years. He asked me to sell the car for him which I am doing, I did a Buy It Now, so you don't have to bid an and wait, and hope to get it. I get people all the time that email me after they missed something I have listed to let me know if the deal falls through...they will buy....Outright price forthis beautiful Camaro RS Vert is $129,900 if Buy It Now is used, or you are free to make a reasonable offer for him to consider. Don't wait for someone else to use Buy It Now and miss it!! No taxes collected by me or any document fees like others charge. Don't miss this one, you will never find another like it. These are huge differences between this restoration and other 67-69 Camaros. You simply could not duplicate this car if you already owned a Camaro and did all your own work for what I am selling this for! Again, I am VERY picky in what I choose to deal with. No expenses were spared. There are $241,488 just in parts and labor on top of the $57K purchase price for the incredible starting point Camaro RS convertible. This car has the best of the best and it was well thought out from top to bottom. It was built to keep and everything was done right. It runs, drives, sounds, and performs like a $200K+ Supercar!!

  • In summary: EVERYTHING works!! No burnt out bulbs anywhere, the back-up lights, dash lights, custom gauges, all work perfectly. A/C is ice cold, heat hot, nothing has any issues. You can let it idle all day in 120 degree heat and it does not get hot. This LS3 swapped Camaro RS convertible is absolutely like brand new. Panel gaps and paint work is absolutely like no other. It runs and drives excellent and has never been abused or driven hard. No chips, road rash, or accidents. There are no odd odors, odd rattles, or odd noises. You can drive thiscar anywhere. Mileage may also varyminimallyascar may be driven for supervised test drives and/or inspections and I do drive it sometimes, but of course will still be kept indoors when not being driven. Please feel free to ask questions and I will answer promptly. This car doesn't need a thing. It is a no excuse, honest car, that needs nothing. It is done right and completely sorted from top to bottom, front to back. The paint color combination and options are simply stunning and it turns heads where ever you go. The all aluminum 6.0L Corvette LS3 V8 engine is amazing and has power to spare and there are no leaks or seeps anywhere. Exhaust sounds amazing. People stop at gas stations and make comments on how immaculate it is. Again, this car has the power to weight ratio and drives like a $200K+ Super Car. It is a steal at under $130K shipped to your door! Nothing even compares to this car for under $150K and any GM dealer can plug into the computer in this car for diagnostics and service. Be the envy of your friends and neighbors!No excuses, issues, or stories with this car. Anyone can just go buy a new Camaro convertible, this one is lighter, handles better, is better balanced, is much faster, sounds better, looks better and is a complete sleeper and one of a kind!! Have a great day and thank you for looking and (hopefully) reading my long description..I just want to be thorough. Each time I think of something else, I revise the listing, add more pictures, and before I know it, it ends up this long!! Very few read what I end up writing, but if you have, thank you!! The first person that reads my entire listing, that has the means, is usually the buyer, so hopefully that is you. Enjoy my 130+ pictures below. Feel free to contact me with any questions and have a great day. :)
