Will 3rd Gen. Camaros be Worth as Much as 1st Gen. Camaros?

I agree Impalas are underated as far as performance goes. I believe they had the LT1 engine in it which was and still is a pretty good performing engine. The base Caprice had a 350 too, I believe. So Caprices/Impala will perform pretty good. Yeah I can see why they are still worth what they are today. I resently saw one go for about $20,000 in a local paper. So maybe SS Impalas will be the next collector car.


2 friends of mine have rides with the 350's. One's an SS clone. (I'm the tall goofy guy!)
Either way, it's a little embarrasing being beaten by a pair of wagons! :oops:

Umm... I'm pretty sure the 4.3 was just a V-6 with 2 cylinders chopped off a 350... Its not an lt1

Yeah, 4.3s are just 350's with two less cylinders. They do not perform like an LT1 though. 4.3's are good engines, but the LT1 is better.

Yes you could get a baby LT1 in a Caprice. It was a 267? V8, yes I said V8, and it was designated a L99.

You're sure it wasn't a 305? I've never heard of a 4.3 V8

I looked it up, it was 265 ci. Sorry oss, you were right. I found this on another mssg board:

"While I never heard of a 305 V6, I feel your pain. I cant tell you how many people have argued with me that Gm never made a 4.3 V8 (L99). Every one knows about the 4.3 V6, but the V8 is unknown.

For those who dont know the 4.3 V8 (L99), is also known as the baby LT1. Externally they are identical, and many parts interchange. The L99 was only used in B-bodys, and mostly used in the Caprice. I dont know why GM would spend so much money on developing a new motor and only use it in one type of vechical, but that is what happened. "
