1993 Camaro B4C. Only 135 total produced with Automatics and 6 speeds. This example is a 6 speed model and is very rare. Clean CarFax and 39,000 original miles.
What is a B4C? Here are excerpts from articles I have found on this option code:
Muscle Camaro's through the years have also played a part in law enforcement. It started in 1979 when the California Highway Patrol evaluated a dozen specially prepared Z28s as high-speed pursuit vehicles.
The Chevrolet Camaro B4C is a Chevrolet Camaro equipped with a "Special Service" police package, also known as B4C Special Equipment Options (SEO) code. The package was offered on the Camaro between 1991 and 2002.
The B4C package has heavier-duty (HD) features over a non-police vehicle as well as some options specific to the installation of police equipment. HD features include:
Oversized front and rear sway bars
Larger (in years after 1991) four-wheel disc brakes
Separate engine, power steering and transmission oil coolers
Certified 150 MPH speedometer
Most of the heavier duty option parts come from a combination of parts from both the regular Z28 and the racing and handling package of the special 1LE option list.
The B4C Camaro's did not come with Z28 badges.
With the fourth-generation of the Camaro came a powerful, 275-horse version of the small-block. When the LS1-powered Camaros were pressed into service, they were the fastest police cars on the highway–capable of more than 160 mph and super-quick acceleration.
B4C Camaros were built in small numbers– sometimes less than 200 per year–so surviving examples are rare finds. Curiously, more than 700 were built in 2002, as word got out that the super-quick pursuit car would be going out of production.

This example was purchased by an individual with some apparent pull at GM. The car was never put into law enforcement duty. There are no lights, cb’s, etc. that were installed on these cars normally. Many examples of these cars had modifications for law enforcement use and were used hard. With only 135 produced with both transmissions, no police modifications, low mileage, and a 6 speed, this is a super rare car.
It has lived a pampered life with only 39,000 miles on it. All parts of the car are well kept and in excellent condition. There is a small crack in the dash top cover, but everything else on the interior and exterior is in very nice condition. The paint and interior are original. The paint is in very nice condition. It does have a couple of small rock chips on the front, but it shines like new and has not dents or damage. Everything works on the car as it should include the AC.
The car runs and drives like a new car. It just passed emissions testing with flying colors. The CarFax report is completely clear with no issues of any kind. The car had 4 prior owners. I can provide a copy of the emission testing slip and CarFax upon request.
