1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z Convertible
The IROC race series invited champions from all walks of racing,
including NASCAR, CART, Le Mans, and even NHRA. No matter who won,
they were always driving an IROC Camaro and as they say in the biz,
win on Sunday, sell on Monday.
This IROC version of the 1988 Camaro is in full IROC street garb.
Special painted badging, a low-slung windshield, some fairings,
canvas convertible version 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, only a 2-owner car with 41,673
consignor documented original miles.
Gray paint covers the straight steel body panels, fairings, and
front built in chin spoiler of the car. Just above the rockers is a
dual black and stainless trimming the wraps entirely around the
car. Black trimmings surround the glass and are also on the door
handles. IROC Z badging is also on the doors and creates a ribbed
fade from gray to white. Black canvas is the convertible top and
just a small tear is above the driver's side window. On the back a
small spoiler trims off the trunk lid, and on the black of the car
are the iconic Camaro shaped taillights that wrap around to the
rear quarters. Silver polished 5 spoke 16-inch Camaro rims are
attached to all 4 corners and noted as "front" and "rear" wheels
because of different offsets. All is just fine with this car's
A snazzy gray and black padded tweed bowls you over when you swing
the doors. A smooth vinyl armrest with a long pull arm within this
tweed as is a black plastic panel for the door actuator and sport
rear view mirrors power buttons. The seats in bucket configuration
for the front, also use the tweed for the front inserts and upper
back panels, with the remainder of the seats being gray nicely aged
leather. As an added texture/color, dark gray trims the backs and
headrest sides. The rear 2 plus 2 bench also is in the same
pattern. Think smoking jacket and a favorite leather billiard room
chair! 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.
Clean fade free gray carpeting floods the floors and this is one
tasteful comfortable interior.
The Tuned Port Injection 5.0L gives plenty of smooth power. EFI
feeds the fuel and on back a 4-speed 700R4 automatic transmission
with overdrive has been optioned on. All this attached to a 10-bolt
2.73 posi rear axle.
The floor pans are solid, as is the unibody construction. Slight
patina for the suspension which consists of independent coil
springs for the front, and a torque arm and coil springs for the
back. Power rear drum brakes are on and power front discs can be
A quick starter, and smooth idle until the warmup was afforded to
me. I slipped into the tweed and leather interior and was grabbed
by the seats. A shift into drive and I was off like a prom dress,
with great acceleration, smooth shifting, and good handling on the
test track. She's able to cruise at highway speeds easily, and air
was blowing cold. I had the top down for my test, and it was a
pleasant experience with plenty of airflow from the outside and the
top manually operating smoothly.
Except for the badging, this car is disguised as a mild mannered
everyday 1988 Chevrolet Camaro. A look under the hood, as well as
the IROC status option package L03, makes it anything but mild
mannered. All in very good condition, this car is a definite goer,
but can also be viewed at any car show you may want to drive it to.
Go ahead, get in and turn it over...well the engine, keep the
wheels down on the ground, although they have a tendency to spin
when you get goosey with your boot!
