Found these today:

Florida:
This one looks like the '93 Callaway Camaro that was for sale last year, but this one is a '94, has stripes, has the Callaway interior, and has 70k miles.
http://westpalmbeach.craigslist.org/car/580381583.html
It has a lot of desirable options, but I feel the price is a little too high. I think 19k is more reasonable.

Canada:
This one was for sale a few months ago, but it's back for sale again. It's overpriced considering the extreme lack of details they are giving. They don't return my emails... and I have no desire to call Canada... :ugh

Michigan:
Can't forget about Commemorative Edition C8 #001 (#1 of the 2 made) still for sale on the COG either.

I agree, it looks awesome!

In other news... The owner of the red car sent me some pics of the interior, and I'm HEAVILY suspicious that it's my friend Bob's car!!! :eek

I'll post more details once I hear back from Bob.

I just about crapped my pants (expression only... I'm not serious) when I compared old pics Bob sent me to the pics the owner on craigslist sent me! It has the SAME aluminum pedals, SAME dove gray Callaway leather interior, and the SAME shifter!

The only question left in my mind is.... is that car painted Torch Red still? Because Bob had his painted Torch Red when Callaway did the work on it. :ohnoes

I just heard back from the seller and it IS Bob's car! It's a good thing Bob sells shifter gaskets, 'cause he's going to BLOW A GASKET when he reads that email I just sent him!!! :eek

Bob doesn't seem to be interested in the car. According to him, too many things have been changed that make it unoriginal. I tend to agree, but I would presume it can be restored relatively inexpensively by replacing dress up items with GM factory pieces and having Callaway replace whatever was changed internally with the engine. (see story below for info on that)

For anyone reading this, perhaps I'm even talking to Anthony directly, this is quite a special Callaway Camaro though for a collector.

1. Most notably it is the only car that recieved the one-off stainless steel cat-back exhaust system Callaway developed for the Camaro. The program for this system was canceled because in order to profit, each exhaust system would have to be sold for about $2,500.

2. It has a SNAT 450, which is fairly uncommon for the Camaros. I only know of a handful with them. Off the top of my head, maybe 5.

3. I know the original owner, and now the 3rd owner of the car. Bob can tell you anything you want to know about the car when he had it, and I'm sure the current owner will tell you all the good stuff about it.

4. The car has a well documented history. I'll copy and paste an edited version of what Bob told me January 2007...


I had the Callaway Honker intake originally but wanted to do something a bit different with the hood without overdoing it. So I bought a fiberglass replica hood from Suncoast in Florida. It is similar to the factory SS hood setup but with a more radical (routing) air intake that results in a slight power loss over the Honker.

Yes, I did have the Callaway designed interior. Custom colors were available so I decided to go with all gray, without the accent color. As far as the shift knob, yes, it is a Callaway knob. I had both an anodized red and anodized black knob. I'm not sure what was in the car when the photos were taken. At the time I was modding my Camaro at Callaway (1996-1999) there was only one brake package available, and that was the F-40 package. It cost $3,400. installed and that was for only the fronts. The rears, I believe, are also Brembo rotors but not cross drilled/slotted. The calipers are stock in the rear.

Here is a story you might enjoy reading. Back around 1998 I had installed my third Callaway engine. I had first installed their SN400 motor and about 6 months later upgraded it to an SN435. Then I had a valve go and had the car carted back to Callaway. Instead of just fixing the problem I had the motor replaced with their SN450 Corvette motor. Well, a month or so later I had the car dynoed and it wasn't making the advertised power. Callaway claimed it was due to the exhaust system but I didn't buy it and kept pressing them for a resolution. They took the car back and thoroughly checked it but couldn't find anything wrong. Fast forward to a month after I sold it. The new owner took the car to his shop for some minor work and it was discovered that there was a motor issue. Must have been the issue that was robbing me of power but was "overlooked" by Callaway. The issue was fixed and the new owner picked up an additional 80-90hp. Here's the cool part of this. When I was working with Callaway's chief engineer at the time, Mike Zoner, about the power issue, he really tried to do all that he could for me. Because he suspected my catback was robbing me of power he showed me a 1-off stainless steel catback he had designed for the Camaro/Firebird. It was a revolutionary design. Just about no back pressure but fairly quiet. I mean, really quiet. It was a gorgeous looking catback, too. Not a "rough" prototype. Callaway had decided not to market this catback because of the high costs to produce it.. It was estimated that they'd have to sell them for $2,500. each! Yep, you read that right. After explaining this to me, he asked if I would like it. Free! I jumped at the opportunity and to this day I have NEVER seen/heard a catback that made that much power while being quiet.

What was the motor issue that cost 90hp?

Brangeta
03-08-08, 01:35 PM
This is the only thing the current owner told me about it.


I do know that the heads were worked on by Mike Carney who is a designer for brodix cylinder heads. I know him personally and he is one of the best in the country. I have some dyno sheets from Allen that show 387 hp and 409 ft-lbs torque to the rear wheels.

Seems kind of low for a SNAT 450.

Aurora40
03-10-08, 01:13 PM
390 to the wheels sounds pretty normal to me for 450hp at the crank. That's a 13% loss. And that sounds pretty good for a streetable 383 build.

Hey Brandon,

That car looks like it has a bunch of nice pieces on it, but I try to collect cars that went to Callaway as brand new cars. I am sure that they will all be of great value in the future, and I will regret passing on every one, but right now, I think I will only jump at complete C8s that were new or nearly new when modified. Don't worry, I have a list and when they pop up, I will jump on them.

I also want some of my father's old TT's, especially 87 #004, which was the first convertible, first Dymag car, and the last of the LF5 replacement blocks. I still love that car. Plus, then I can post in the Vette forum ;)

Brangeta
05-14-08, 08:58 PM
I never went through with an offer, because I knew it was too much to handle for me.

I talked to who bought it, and he commented that he believes he can get it back to normal for about $25k but a long, long, long time of being in the shop.

It hit a telephone pole at 50 mph when one of the original 1994/1995 rear tires blew out... :ugh

It was too much of a project for me to handle. It's still possible to save it, but not on my budget.

CallawayC8
05-16-08, 09:54 PM
I managed to pick this car up from the original owner. It was a very unfortunate accident, as the car was uninsured and has only 6000 miles on it. It has some extensive damage to the core, but surprisingly, the forks are not too bad at all. The engine still turns over, and the core did not push back into it. Like Brandon mentioned, the car will be completely broken down, assessed, and repaired properly. It will take considerable time, but it will be saved.

I will post pics when I undertake this project.

How cool. This one is located in Switzerland and is for sale. I've never seen this one, there's only 1 real C8 in Bright Teal Metallic, and I didn't know there was a CamAerobodied Camaro in the color as well.
http://images.qxlricardo.com/ImgUsers/5/537/53792/5379279/537927948_Big.jpg

Some details: 1996 Z28 convertible, 24,700 miles, 6-speed manual, no SNAT, OZ Monte Carlo wheels, CamAerobody. They want $28,907.31 US dollars. Bit high, but perhaps it is very reasonable in Switzerland.

How much does he want for just the front clip? :)

I have to say, the teal is quite pretty in real life. Callaway repaints the car a slightly different color to the stock teal. I can't wait to get the C8 on the road again.

lol if your French is any good you might try asking them.

I really like the bright teal metallic (1994-1996) a lot better than the mystic teal metallic (1995-2001). The mystic teal is too dark and too green for me. I like bright blue myself. :upthumbs

Well, you make a point, but perhaps you haven't thought of the fact that when people incorrectly search for Calloway, it pulls up the auction. When I used to sell a lot of Camaro stuff, I'd put Camero somewhere in my ad as well. Same went for Dragon Ball Z and Dragonball Z several years ago.

I happened to find this thread while using Google. Just wanted those interested that I was the original owner of that red '94 Camaro. It had pretty much all of Callaway's available mods except for the body kit. Paint was not Torch Red to my knowledge. I had it painted by Callaway's painter in Branford, CT and only know he chose a Corvette red for extra brightness.

I'm well aware of the changes the buyer had made and know he was having trouble selling it on eBay a couple of years ago. The owner undid so many of the original mods that I wasn't at all interested in buying it back at the time. I still have a framed photo here in my office of the car back from 1999 my kids gave me. The car, by the way, was a Class Winner at a 1999 Super Chevy Show (I still have the jacket I was awarded), and took Runner-Up in 2000.

I'd love to know if it sold, to whom, and for how much. And what it looks like today. I miss that car! :)

It started as a z28, then was a supernatural 404 immediately, then in 97 became a supernatural 435, but produces just over 450HP, back in 97, they didnt have a supernatural450 just yet. I have lots of pictures, and I need to sell it fast, trying to raise money for a down payment on a house. call me at 210-601-0167 for more details. I am letting this car go for only 12,000 right now!
