Friday’s Barrett-Jackson Auction saw the very first 45th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro Convertible sold. The car brought in $150,000, which will be donated to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.

While a regular 45th Anniversary Package is just a $1,375 add-on for most Camaros, this auction was not for just any old Camaro with the package. The vehicle sold during the auction had the VIN #001.

The 45th Anniversary Package includes a special Carbon Flash Metallic paint, along with 20-inch wheels, a unique stripe package, a custom interior with black and red leather seats, custom fog lights, taillights, and 45th Anniversary badging.

Last May, Chevrolet debuted its 45th Anniversary Camaro, offering the package to any 2LT or 2SS trim level coupe or convertible. However, the first 45th Anniversary Camaro Convertible is a different story. For that, head down to Palm Beach, Fla. on April 6 for the Barrett-Jackson Auction.

All proceeds from the sale of the 45th Anniversary Camaro Convertible will go to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. The 45th Anniversary package comes with Carbon Flash Metallic paint, 20-inch wheels, unique stripe package, custom interior with black and red leather seats, custom fog lights, taillights, and 45th Anniversary badging.

Purchased separately, the package is priced at $1,375, which isn’t bad considering what you get.

That price is sure not to apply to the 2SS 45th Anniversary Camaro Convertible, which is one-of-a-kind with VIN 001 sporting the 6.2L V8 with a six-speed manual transmission. Those that can’t attend the event in Florida may also bid online.
