Trying To Find A 1979 Chevrolet Camaro RS

By  | 


We received a message on Facebook to ask if we have any 1979 Chevrolet Camaro RS cars.
Checking the website, we found we didn’t have any. One of those models that is out of the classic muscle car era, but still holds up.
Still, we now had a mission to find some examples for sale.
‘Well, this should be easy, it’s only a 79 Camaro’ I thought. Hmmmm, how wrong I was.

The 79 Camaro had the base model, SS, Z/28 and luxury-oriented Berlinetta models. The RS models were trim level packages, usually added to other models, but there should still be examples of RS only models, or so I thought.

There’s a psychological phenomenon where once you start looking for evidence of something, you will see it everywhere. You know, if you buy a certain car, you start seeing them everywhere.
The exact opposite seems to the case with the a 1979 Camaro RS!
Scouring everywhere I could online, I was tripping over 1979 Z/28s, RS Z/28s and a few Berlinetta’s, but no RS only models……hmmm.

I rang around a few dealers to see if they had a 1979 Chevrolet Camaro RS.
The same, plenty of Z28s and base models, no RS only models.

Okay, this search is in the category of ‘I have to wait until one pops up for sale’, but then I find 2 within a few minutes…..yay! (The scenario of ‘nothing happens for a long time, then many come around at once.’ or in my case, two!)

So here are the two 1979 Chevrolet Camaro RS models I found.

My grandma was right teaching me the saying, ‘seek and you will find!’
