RARE LOW PRODUCTION LOW MILEAGE FROM EARNHART CHEVROLET ONE OF ONLY 100 PRODUCE
Just IN Car # 11 With ONLY 2,990 Pampered Miles, A True Collectors Piece Of History
In 1997, SLP Engineering took LT4 engines left over from the 1996 Corvette Grand Sport production run and installed them in 100 Camaro SS coupes. The result was one of the most powerful fourth-generation Camaros ever built: the 1997 Chevrolet Camaro 30th Anniversary SS LT4. Few, if any, of these cars ever hit the showroom floor, since they were spoken for well before getting to dealers.
SLP could have simply placed the LT4 in the 30th Anniversary SS, jacked the price up almost 18 grand and called it a day. Instead, they completely disassembled, balanced, blueprinted and enhanced the engine with stress plates. From there, one out of five engines was put through its paces on a Superflow dynamometer, and every LT4 SS car was tested on a chassis dynamometer and road-tested for six miles.
The LT4 Camaro was definitely built to function like the performance icon it has become. The engine comes with a 10.8:1 compression ratio and redlines at 6,300 rpm. Maximum horsepower is achieved at 5,800 rpm, and maximum torque is realized at 4,500 rpm. Fuel shutoff doesn't occur until 6,400 rpm. Nope, this isn't your typical fourth-generation Camaro. Chevrolet and SLP Engineering got it right when they conceived this tire-smoking, pavement-pounding Camaro SS.
All 30th Anniversary LT4 Camaros are identified by their Arctic White paint with Hugger Orange stripes on the hood, roof and rear deck. Orange SS badging adorns the front fenders and rear deck. A functional hood scoop rises slightly above the hood and feeds fresh air to the LT4.
Only 106 special 1997 Camaro SS 30th Anniversary LT4's would be built. 100 would be for sale in the United States and 6 would be sold throughout Canada. Due to timing constraints for certification, the cars were not available for sale in California, New York or Massachusetts.
To purchase one of these special Camaro SS's one needed to complete a SLP Sales Agreement Form and place a $5,000 deposit with their dealer. Once the deposit was received by SLP, the owner is notified of a production date. The first 50 cars were built between January and February 1997 and the second group of 50 cars was produced between March and April.
