The fourth generation of the Chevy Camaro was the last generation one to ride on the venerable GM F-Body platform, as the fifth-generation was based on the GM Zeta platform. As such, fourth-gen units are considered by some enthusiasts as the last of the original Camaro models. Today, you now have the opportunity to purchase the very last fourth-generation Camaro ever built, as this 2002 unit is currently listed for sale at a dealership in Illinois.
There are actually quite a few notable distinctions regarding this 2002 Chevy Camaro. In fact, this unit is equipped as a high-performance Z28, which was intended as more of a handling package. Moreover, this Camaro actually only features 27 original miles on the odometer, making it a time machine back to the early 2000s.
Finished in the Bright Rally Red paint color and equipped with T-Tops, this Camaro certainly boasts a classic look. Rollers include the optional bright chrome 16-inch wheels, which are wrapped in the original factory wheels. The underbody is clean as can be, while the rear differential cover features a special message that was written by the production team when the Camaro was originally auctioned off to charity. The car was previously sold on Bring a Trailer in 2019.
Under the hood lies the iconic 5.7L V8 LS1 gasoline engine, which was rated at 310 horsepower and 340 pound-feet of torque when new. The GM four-speed automatic transmission transmits the output to the rear wheels.
An interesting piece of history that might be worth noting is that the factory where this Camaro was produced, the GM Sainte-Thérèse Assembly in Canada, was demolished and replaced by a shopping mall and a condominium complex after production of the fourth-gen F-Body ceded. As such, that makes this 2002 Camaro Z28 the final vehicle ever built at this assembly plant on August 27th, 2002.
