Chevrolet celebrated its iconic pony car’s 35-year existence by releasing an exclusive, limited-edition package to commemorate it.
Wearing Regular Production Order or RPO Z4C, the ’02 35th Anniversary Camaro would mark the last special-edition, Bow Tie F-body pony car. Available only on (WU8) Super Sport (SS) models, the limited number built would represent the best of the last.
Already Special: SS Package
Since 1998, the Camaro Z28/SS has been powered by the legendary Gen III 5.7L/346 cubic-inch LS1, making 305-325 underrated horsepower, depending on year and model. V8 Camaros were wielded by either a four-speed-overdrive automatic (4L60-E) or BorgWarner (T56) six-speed manual tranny. And both V8 models had standard four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with optional traction control.
On top of most option groups, the Camaro Z28s with the WU8-SS package were equipped with a higher output LS1 engine, resulting from a specific air-induction scooped hood and freer-flowing SS exhaust. SS badging, a taller rear spoiler, beefier suspension components, and 17×9 SS-specific wheels wrapped in 275/40/17 Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber completed the package.
Street Legal Party: SLP
Street Legal Performance (SLP), the NJ-based company, had relinquished its Firebird WS6 Ram Air responsibilities to American Sunroof Corporation (ASC) for 1998-’02. SLP was still in charge of converting mild-mannered Z28s into badass SS Camaros, something they had done since 1996. The Z4C 35th Anniversary package was SLPs F-body finale.
When a Z28 was ordered with WU8-SS/Z4C, the Camaro was built at the Ste Therese Quebec F-body assembly plant and then shipped, wearing a temporary flat hood, to SLPs nearby La Salle facility. Here, the lucky Camaro received its SS-specific air-induction composite hood and taller rear spoiler, along with any additional (second sticker content) SLP options (Y2Y). In the case of the Z4C cars, unique graphics and hood accent paint were added, as well.
Stripes and Everything Nice
For an additional $2,500, on top of the $3,625 option-loaded WU8-SS option, Z4C was primarily an appearance package.
2002 Chevrolet Camaro SS 35th Anniversary
The Z4C 35th Anniversary option included:
Bright red exterior paint (Code 81) with dual silver stripes fading into checkered racing flags flowing from the front fascia splitter over the hood and rear decklid/spoiler. The 35th Anniversary T-top coupes have a red body color roof pillar. While the ’02 Z28/non-Z4C SS cars had black. The 35th Anniversary Camaro SS convertibles are fitted with electrically-operated black soft tops Matte black-accented hood scoop stripe Unique 17×9 ten-spoke, machine-faced SS wheels with black inserts and black anodized brake calipers front/rear Unique front grille and rear panel between tail lights receive silver-embossed “Camaro” lettering Exclusive 35th Anniversary SS badging Ebony leather seats with Medium gray leather inserts (193) and custom 35th Anniversary embroidered headrests, front floor mats, and rear hatch trophy mat- (T-top coupes only) “35th Anniversary” center-dash badge and special owner’s portfolio
Total Z4C 35th Anniversary Camaro production stands at 3,369 units, split between 1,971 T-top coupes and 1,398 convertibles, with 3,000 for the U.S. market and 369 staying in Canada.
Even though the SS/Z4C cars were already chock full of unique features, SLP offered an array of options. Starting with the 2000 year model, these options were referred to as RPO Y2Y for SLP’s second sticker content; on “most” of SLP SS Camaros/Firebird Firehawks, a second door jamb sticker exists, listing all additional SLP options ordered.
For ’02, SLP offered some enticing upgrades, including the new 345 horsepower option, combining SLP’s new Blackwing air lid and smooth intake bellows. bump the factory 325 horsepower to 345 was accomplished with one of two proven, optional S/S exhausts: either the Dual/Dual (D-D) system or SLP’s signature Center Mount Exhaust (CME). With the stock intake, both exhausts provided 335 horsepower. Other popular SLP Y2Y content included Bilstein shocks, 1LE suspension components, BFG G-Force tires, an Auburn rear end diff, and an SLP car cover.
In factory guise, the ’02 35th Anniversary Camaro SS performs as a standard SS, since graphics and paint don’t add horsepower. That said, in its day, an ’02 SS Camaro was quite the bang for the buck. Making a manufacturer-stated 325 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, most sources had Chevy’s last Super Sport F-body launching to 60 mph in the low 5-second range and down the 1/4-mile in the mid-to-low 13s. Although only a tenth of a second-difference, computer-shifting (auto) often edged out the stick. Of course, with the SLP options mentioned above and a good set of slicks, they were even quicker.
