In the same way that Ford's Mustang LX 5.0 was the low-cost performance alternative to the GT, the Camaro RS packed plenty of V8 firepower in a more affordable package than the Z/28 or IROC. This 1991 Chevrolet Camaro RS coupe is a low-mileage survivor car with great original paint and interior and a lightly warmed-over 5.0 liter V8 that's a blast to drive.
To many enthusiasts, the RS is more appealing because of its somewhat more subdued look compared to the extroverted Z/28. No stripes, a flat hood, and just a modest ducktail spoiler out back, not a wing. But it was still a V8 pony car, so you got ground effects and a deep chin spoiler that make the Camaro look long and low. That's original Dark Teal paint throughout, and aside from some minor signs of age that are inevitable in a vehicle with this mileage, it's in great condition. Quite honestly, I'm not sure I've ever seen paint this nice on an American vehicle from this vintage, with this kind of mileage. Original paint also means original sheetmetal underneath, so you know this one has never been wrecked or rusty, and given the performance of which these cars were capable, that's always good news. The big doors close well and without that loose-sounding rattle that plagues high-mileage cars and the rockers haven't been blasted by gravel. The past owners clearly loved this car and treated it like family.
The gray cloth interior is surprisingly rather sophisticated looking and the grippy, sculpted high-back buckets are a great place to have some fun. Again, this is entirely original, so the preservation is incredibly impressive, with only the slightest of minor wear to report. Carpets are excellent, the crack-free dash pad hasn't been baked by the sun, and other than a weak horn and somewhat inconsistent RPM gauge, everything works like it should. This particular RS is loaded with factory options too, including cold A/C, power windows/locks/mirrors, cruise control, and a tilt steering column, and all the factory gauges show crisp, clear marking inside the original instrument cluster just beyond the big steering wheel. Somewhat amazingly, the original Delco AM/FM/CD stereo is still in place (which would've been a very cool and expensive option in 1991), and because it's still working great those old Richard Marx and Bon Jovi CD's can make a triumphant come-back into your arsenal. Watch out ladies! The backseat area looks largely untouched and the hatch storage area is bone-stock and in great shape, expanding a bit farther with the seats folded down. And the hatch struts still keep the glass up even after all these years. Nice!
Despite being one of the most modification-friendly powerplants anywhere, an all-original, bone-stock and strong-running 5.0 liter V8 sits between the shock towers in a well-organized engine compartment. As the featured powerplant of this third generation Camaro, it offers throttle body fuel injection in place of preceding generations' carburetors for better all-weather starting and dependability. The V8 teams with a 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission whose overdrive gear makes driving at highway speeds a low RPM affair, and it spins a more-than-capable 10-bolt rear end that's assisted with a thick rear sway bar. Power brakes -with discs up front - bring low-effort, fade resistant stops, while power steering makes navigating easy. With its aerodynamic shape, wide track and low profile, this Camaro is a strong corner carver on its set of 16" stock wheels wrapped with 245/50/16 BFGoodrich tires.
