Series 23 Six Cyl Sport Coupe
Chassis #: 124870L500001
Sold for $63,800 at 2009 Worldwide Auctioneers : The Houston Classic Auction.
Sold for $41,000 at 2010 Mecum Auctions - The Bob McDorman Collection.
The 1970 Camaro was introduced to the public in the middle of the year, on February 26, 1970. The second generation Camaro would remain in production for the next 12 years. For 1970, Chevrolet produced 124,901 examples which were nearly identical to the last year of the second generation, 1981, when 126,139 Camaros were built. Over its production lifespan, nearly two million second generation Camaros (1,936,869 2nd generation Camaros were built) were created.

With each passing year, model introductions began with pilot production cars at each affected assembly plant. This allowed workers the opportunity to become familiar with new processes. It was also a demonstration of the new assembly processes, specifications, components, and codes. These cars were typically given ever available option in order to give as much experience to the line as possible. Much time and attention went into assembling these cars and most were essentially custom built, hand-assembled prototypes. After they were built, they were subjected to careful checking and equally careful adjustment to correct any oversights. From there, they were typically sent to familiarize GM employees and the media with the year's new model.

The Camaro is chassis number 1, the first Camaro built at the Van Nuys factory in 1970. It has been given a comprehensive restoration and finished in Classic White paint. There is a black vinyl roof, and blue vinyl interior. Power is from its original 350 cubic-inch 250 horsepower 'NN' engine with the original 350 Turbo HyrdaMatic automatic transmission. The list of options found on this car includes air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, console, tinted glass, white letter tires, five convenience lamps plus the light group, pushbutton radio, windshield antenna, clock, custom seats, and deluxe interior.

Its early life was spent as a regional courtesy car in the Chevrolet fleet.

In 2009, this Camaro Sport Coupe was offered for sale at the Houston Classic Auction presented by Worldwide Auctioneers in Seabrook, Texas. The lot was estimated to sell for $70,000 - $90,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $58,000 plus buyer's premium.
