Chassis no. 2G1FP22G412145496. Black with a silver stripe over black leather. 346/381hp LS1, 6-speed, chambered exhaust, Intimidator carbon fiber air box, Dale Earnhardt short throw shifter, American Racing wheels, CD stereo, fitted car cover. Comes with original window sticker.

Evaluation: Sold new at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet in North Carolina and never driven. Showing just 69 miles. The window sticker reads $28,885, which is about $46,000 in today’s money.

Bottom Line: Fourth gen Camaros are by no means rare, but special performance versions (of which there were several in Kissimmee this year) are gathering steam in the collector market and selling for higher prices. Just 83 of these SS “Intimidators” were built and they do have real performance advantages over a standard SS, not to mention a cool name and a connection to a famous driver. Although none of the bidders did it for Dale at Mecum Indianapolis last year, when this car was bid to a $35,000 no-sale, the folks in Kissimmee thought a lot more highly of it.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
