More than just an exceptional look, this 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
has all the right moves. With its bold stipes and lines, high
torque, and a four-speed manual, this one can wow them well-beyond
the original paint and exceptionally low, actual mileage.
You know you love the look of these final-years for the second-generation Camaro. The angular body had matured into a seamless and chrome-free design that makes it look even a bit modern today. It only gets better with this car's original factory white gleaming in the sunshine like a modern iPad. It's the perfect backdrop for the gold tone stripes. In fact, not only does this match nicely with the special gold-tone factory alloys, but also those stripes do a terrific job of fading to black and introducing the car's darker elements like the headlight surrounds, tail panel, and air induction hood. It's such a well-coordinated and well-preserved factory package that it has tons of modern appeal today.
Inside, the tan is the perfect complement to the exterior accent color. It's exceptionally well preserved on the dash, headliner, door panels, and carpeting. Plus, the seats have been recovered in fresh material to continue the pristine factory appearance. And more than just look great, this is comfortable for everyone, with original features such as the power windows, AM/FM stereo, and factory air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved for the driver. The optional rope-wrap steering wheel and full gauge dashboard give this Z a performance feel. This atmosphere is only heightened the moment you grab the dogleg gear stick, boldly sticking out of the center console.
The only way you could get the large and reliable 350 cubic-inch Chevy small block in 1980 was with the Z/28 package. So it's great to not only have the top motor in this cool cruiser, but also it's great to know the V8 is the original numbers-matching unit. You can really tell this is a time capsule classic by the details like the diaphragm around the air cleaner for the for the induction hood, and the "Keep your GM car all GM" decal that enthusiasts look for. Emissions regulations meant this power plant didn't always have the best horsepower figures of the Camaros, but the ace up its sleeve was that this motor has similar torque figures to the Mercedes sports cars of the day. Plus, this one gives you the most out of the V8 with the control of a four-speed manual. Adding to this driver's attitude are features like power steering, front disc brakes, and BF Goodrich T/A tires at all four corners. So while this classic has averaged less than 820 miles annually, we know you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer.
Complete with original title docs, this is an interesting original, with a very sporty pedigree. You're likely never going to find another Z/28 like this again, so hurry if you want to make it yours. Call now!!
