Question about SS camaros

I'm looking to maybe purchase a SS camaro it's really nice but I have a few questions. First of all it's clothe interior I thought they were all leather? Second the little badge by the stereo reads "Camaro" shouldn't it read "Camaro SS"?

Let me know what you think.

Worry about the VIN number.....not the badges.
Verify it against a VIN checker for GM.

It should.
I would imagine you could order a cloth SS, and I would think that badge inside would be pretty much the same across all of the trim levels.

Once you have the VIN, you can check options pretty easily.

You could also check RPO codes, the RPO code for the SS package was WU8

The badge on the dash, the bezel could have been replaced and maybe just the Camaro was on that one. Idk. Mine says Camaro SS, so idk. There should be a sticker on the driver side door jam with a list of parts added by SLP. Sticker could be faded tho. Also RPO codes should tell u something.

SLP didn't modify ALL of the SS line though did they?

I want to say they did. I taped the SLP episode of American Muscle car and I want to say they claimed that all the SS cars were sent to SLP as Z28s and left as SSs, with the level of modification left to what the customer put on the order sheet.

That very well could be.
I always thought there were two SS's though.....an SLP SS and a "base" SS. Clearly using "base" very loosely.

This is what I thought as well and had always heard.... Although my fourth gen knowledge is considerably less than third or first... So idk for sure

Maybe you're thinking by The Firebird system? Maros only had Z28 as far as v8 f-body from the factory and Firebird having the formula and the trans am? And the SS is like the WS6? And Firehawk I guess is its own beast?

Just throwing shit out there.

The LS1 WS.6 is from ASC Global. The LT1 WS.6 is SLP. The LS1 Firehawk is SLP.
I always thought there was an SS and a SLP SS.....

I was under the impression that all ls1 SS's were converted by SLP, as camarojauna has stated. Sent to SLP as z/28's, then converted. I DO know my 2001 SS is an SLP conversion, it has the SLP sticker on the driver side door jam.

I didn't know that the LS1 WS6 wasn't SLP like the LT1. I thought it was. I'm way more of a Camaro guy, I know them inside out. Never read much on Pontiacs. When I first got on here, it was the first time I learned that Firebird automatics had the performance button. Lol. I was like "wow, that's cool." Lol.

I knew the Firehawk was SLP, just thought the WS6 was too.

I would check for RPO code WU8, if it didn't have the code I'd walk away, or haggle for a lower price cause its a Z28 with a SS hood and spoiler.

Ya, ^^^^^ the VIN will only say its a z28, not an SS. Idk why Mr, Luos said to check the VIN. RPO codes will tell you if it is or not. I have never seen an SS with cloth seats tho. And I've seen a lot of SS's. But guess one could have been ordered with them. Doubt it tho.

Well, when I first got mine, I was overseas. But when I came home I called SLP directly, all you need is the VIN.

Mine has all the goodies, leather included, but my interior badge says CAMARO only, in white though, so imagine this is aftermarket, its usually red in every other car I've owned with it.
