I am in Florida, USA..at some point the car was brought into the US...I only bought it about 3 weeks ago and from a dealer so he had no info on the background. As for the tail panel emblem, it could be a full rallysport eblem cut in half and installed but I have no way to prove if that was from the factory or not. Never seen it on an RS camaro before but it is aged liked the RS on the back.

Did you know enough about Camaros at your time of purchase to know/recognize it was a foreign built Camaro? or did you find out only later?   Did you pay a premium for the car? or get it cheaper (for it being of foreign assembly?)...

My first car in high school was a 69 Camaro..only paid $800 for it and took all my newspaper money to buy it. Was a base camaro with 350, automatic but it ran like a bat out of hell. Funny to think it was considered a Used car back then..traded it in when I graduated for an economical car at the time.. ugh a Chevy Chevette. So I am familiar with camaros and knew it was an import car before i purchased it by the description but did not know until I saw this one for sale and started investigating it..Google is king! I did not pay what I think was a premium but just a fair negotiated price. That's why I joined this forum to get more info on it and CRG requested if anyone had one to post in here..so here is one!!

Thanks for posting and telling us about your car; we don't see many of those... :)   It's very interesting to see the differences.

Welcome! Finally got a minute.
The badging is not original. Somewhere there is a post about the car when it was on ebay.
The car was originally red, then was shot white in 71. Had the original LM1 back in 2015, but that went away, car was painted maroon and the disc brakes were added.
