I know this is a Ford forum but in my time here I've posted more about my Hellcat than the Mustang I owned or my current Explorer Sport. I would be curious if anyone has an opinion on what this F body I'm thinking of buying is worth. I'm currently looking at a pretty heavily modified 2002 Camaro SS with t-tops and a manual transmission. It's supposed to have 16 thousand miles. It has a Pro Charger, Moser 12 Bolt rear end, upgraded transmission and clutch, and Baer Claw aftermarket brakes. It also has an aftermarket cooling system, beefed up suspension, etc. It was owned by a doctor and he dumped a lot of money in this thing. I plan on verifying the mileage through Car Fax. I own a Hellcat so wasn't really looking for an F body, but if I can get it for a good price I might have some fun with it for a year or two and then hope to sell it to the next person. I don't want to lose a bunch of money though so would like opinions on what it's worth? Thanks

If the body lines are clean because the F-Body's tend to have body twist due to t-tops then you're fine. It sounds like a clean car with the mileage but offloading the Hellcat is the question, are you taking a huge it or coming out clean?

I'm keeping my Hellcat regardless. I drove this thing and it was fun and definitely made power, but didn't pull like my Hellcat. If I bought this I would autocross the crap out of it and not care. The Hellcat sucks for that purpose and is more fun to just drive. I would use the F body primarily on the track.

Snag the f-body then, if it's a turn around car then it's a no brainer. If it was WS6 I'd say keep it but Camaro's are dime a dozen.

Recommendation! if staying N/A dump a reverse split cam in plus ported heads

No way I would drop 13k on an Fbody, no matter the condition. For 15-16k you could get a high mileage C5Z06 and have a better AutoX platform.

Not feeling those wheels although appearance probably does not matter for what you want to do with it. $13k seems rich.
