This 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is a highly documented Z-car with a
very cool color combo. And with the strong-running V8 under the
hood, it all makes for the kind of classic coupe that's great for
both enjoying the drive and enjoying the history.
We really love the style of this Camaro. It's from the few years in
the later second-gen where they took away the chrome, and in its
place, they integrated more nearly seamless angles into the design.
The factory-correct silver paint is a timeless color, and so it
helps this coupe straddle a vintage look with modern driving
appeal. In fact, it has the right balance of a good shine while
still never making you nervous about driving it. Plus, black always
goes great with silver, and it fully accents this car. The grille,
headlight bezels, and rear panel are all part of this dark package.
And of course, the stripes are legendary. These triple-tone streaks
sweep under the front spoiler and run down the sides. The air
induction hood, full-width rear spoiler, and even the Z28 badging
all get a similar striping package to give this Camaro a uniform
look of well-done classic. And the included factory buildsheet
tells you it was born this way!
The blue interior is another distinctive feature that's straight
from the factory. After all, we're used to seeing Camaro with black
on the inside, and so this keeps a dark tone but with a more unique
touch. This is a highly original presentation, and so that means
you get some cool classic features. It's seen it in places like the
velour high-back bucket seats with distinctive striping on the
headrests, the Z28 badging in the door panels, and the corded grip
of the NK4 sports steering wheel. This has some great factory
features, like power windows, a tilt steering column, full gauges,
and the AM/FM/cassette stereo is a rare option for the time. Plus,
the added auxiliary readout trio lets you keep an even better eye
on what's going on under the hood.
The Z28 was the only one 1980 Camaro get the 350 cubic-inch motor,
and so it's great to see such a correct a clean presentation under
the hood. While the engine bay has a very vintage look, right down
to the air intake that seals to the fresh air hood, there are also
some added secrets here. This is a replacement V8, and so it's
believed to be a bit fresher than stock. It still inhales deeply
with a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, but now it exhales with
added power and authority from headers that feed the stainless dual
exhaust. This is a strong-running V8, and it's mated to a
smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission. That makes for
a great driver. Especially when paired with power steering, power
brakes, front discs, sway bars front & rear, and wide BF Goodrich
T/A on the classic factory alloys.
Not only does the sale come with the factory buildsheet, but also
the original warranty card, reproduction window sticker, service
manuals, owner's manual, and some Camaro promo literature. It all
makes for a cool Z28 that gets to show off its history. So if you
like driving a true classic, call today!
