A lot of cars are being auctioned off these days with the intention of having the proceeds sent to various charities, that much we know. More often than not, these cars are of the special edition variety with the hope that their ’uniqueness’ would attract more bids than just a standard model.

And when you look at this West Coast Customs-tuned Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, ’unique’ is probably too light a word to describe it.

A few days ago, the UCLA Health System announced that a Camaro Convertible was auctioned off for $366,000 at the Mecum Auto Auction in Dallas, Texas. While the Camaro Convertible doesn’t appear to have any performance modifications attached, the people over at West Coast Customs, led by Ryan Friedlinghaus, made sure that the Camaro Convertible would look about as different as any other Camaro in the world.

The special, one-off muscle car was dressed up in a full camouflage motif, representing all the branches of the US military. The rather steep price of $366,000 came as the winning bid of auction host Ben Mecum, who was pleased to raise that much money for charity.

Proceeds from the sale of the one-off Camaro will go to Operation Mend, a joint tie-up between the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, and the Veterans Affairs–Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System. This organization provides specialized medical care to U.S. military personnel who have been wounded and severely disfigured in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Check out the $366,000 camouflaged Chevrolet Camaro Convertible and tell us it’s worth the money it fetched in the auction. We can even argue that Mecum got a bargain out of it.

It will surely be so unique on its military appearance and I can say that it is very appealing on that and the engine that it had is not so powerful but I think its only just enough on it. Hmmm, I wonder if what will the interior of this one can offered.
