1986 Chevrolet IROC Camaro
A concept created partially by Roger Penske, the International Race
of Champions or IROC would pit all-star drivers from numerous
venues of racing, against each other in similarly prepared cars.
Except for the first season, those cars were provided by Chevrolet,
and they chose to feature the Camaro.
This IROC version of the 1986 Camaro is in full IROC street garb.
Special Painted badging, a low slung windshield, some fairings, a
"T" top in removable smoked glass, and a powerful 5.0 Liter tuned
port fuel injection engine were just a few of the features that
were added to this version of the Camaro. An original 44,444 miles
and very clean California and North Carolina car.
Dark Red Metallic covers the straight steel body panels, fairings
and front built in spoiler of the car. A curved glass rear
greenhouse deck offering up plenty of storage, and a bag for the T
tops is seen on back. IROC Z badging in gold fade is seen on each
door, as well as Z28 tuned port injection in gold badge on the
front lower fender. Hood lovers and a removable smoked glass "T"
top are optioned on this car. Polished 16-inch 5 spoked Camaro gold
mags are attached to all 4 corners and noted as "front" and "rear"
wheels because of different offsets. Lower rocker portion of this
car is very clean and presents as a nicely cared for 44,444 mile
A snazzy beige angled striped and clear broadcloth bowls you over
in bucket seat configuration shows stitching in the middle panels
on seat and back. Bolsters are smooth and all bordered with beige
piping. This also holds true for the rear 2 plus 2 seats which
individually fold down for rear compartment access. A black console
and dash, house all the critical instrumentation, as well as
climate controls, radio and automatic shift lever. Power windows
are installed. Power locks, power steering, power brakes, power
toggle mirrors and a power driver's seat are working and are great
conveniences with this sports car. The seats are pristine and
beautiful beige and beige striped, as is the tan carpet flooding
the floors all over.
The Tuned Port Injection 5.0 Liter gives plenty of smooth power.
This is fed with Electronic Fuel Injection. On back a 4-speed
automatic transmission (700 R4 Model). All this attached 10-bolt
2.73 Posi-traction rear axle.
Some surface rust is noted on the suspension and driveshaft and
rear pumpkin. Floorpans are solid, as is unibody construction. Rear
disc brakes are on and front discs all power brakes are on.
Independent coilspring front suspension, and Torque arm suspension
for the rear is seen. A Flowmaster exhaust is now installed.
As I sat inside, I was harkened back to my mid 1980's memories with
the T top off and screaming down the highway going to the shore.
This car fired right up, and the test track proved all those
memories true, a great cruiser, smooth accelerator, and good
handling. The cassette was not operating so I had to forgo my Peter
Gabriel "Sledgehammer" cassette playing while I cruised.
For my test drive I wanted to keep the mileage at 44,444.4 but went
.5 over! Lovely car, wonderful color scheme, and a good driver.
Fairly clean spending most of its time in good warm salt free
weather, and while in PA for the last 4 years, never driven in
rain. An all original car harkening back to the days of big
