For the 1997 model year, the Chevy Camaro could be had with the 30th Anniversary Edition option. The package included Arctic White paint with Hugger Orange stripes, and white-painted wheels. The interior featured white leather seats or white leather with black and white houndstooth cloth inserts. Either embossed or embroidered into the headrests was a 30th Anniversary logo.
The SS option for 1997 Chevy Camaros was a non-factory installed modification available through Chevrolet dealers, though the cars were modified by SLP (Street Legal Performance). The package included a 305-hp LT1, hood with functional forced induction, revamped rear spoiler, improved suspension, and five-spoke Corvette ZR1-style 17×9-inch wheels with 275/40ZR Goodyear performance rubber. This package was combined with the 30th Anniversary Edition option.
The consensus is 957 Chevy Camaro SS 30th Anniversary coupes were produced. SLP removed the LT1 engines from 108 SS Anniversary coupes and replaced them with 1996 Corvette Grand Sport crate LT4, one hundred of which went to the U.S. market, six to Canada, and two prototypes.
Our feature Chevy Camaro SS 30th Anniversary coupe has covered a scant 568 miles from new. It is powered by the 305-horsepower 5.7-liter LT1 engine backed by a six-speed manual transmission. It is equipped with every available option from SLP and Chevy for the Camaro SS 30th Anniversary Edition coupes.
The exterior of this Camaro is in absolutely mint showroom condition, with no shortcomings. It has been waxed and polished. Plastic still covers the white leather seats, the steering wheel, and the floor. Original paper floor mats are in place. The original wheel weights have been removed and stored so as to avoid damaging the white-painted wheels. Under the hood, the engine bay is spotless, detailed, and original. A thoroughly detailed undercarriage adds to the like-new presentation of this Chevy Camaro.
The window sticker, build sheet, and original delivery documents are all included in the sale of this Chevy Camaro SS 30th Anniversary Edition coupe. It will cross the auction block at the Mecum Auctions Chicago event taking place October 21st through the 23rd.
