1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
Starting in 1990, aerodynamic designs returned to the automotive
landscape, replacing the angular shapes that dominated the 1980's.
The Chevrolet Camaro received a welcome redesign that modernized
the brand in 1993 retiring the 11-year-old third generation
For consignment, an example of the technological breakthroughs
brought over into the design of this new generation Camaro, in
Z28/SS form, nonetheless. A very clean Carfax report, several new
parts, a repaint in 2009 all bring this car up to a fresh start for
the next owner.
Part of the breakthrough difference that distinguishes this car
from the previous generation are the use of composite plastic in
the construction of the doors, front fenders, and trunk. Steel
remains only in the rear quarters, and the hood. All panels are
covered with Black, which was repainted in 2009 and remains in good
condition. An aerodynamic hood with the obligatory SS scoop melts
back into the 68 degree raked back windshield then is interrupted
by a smoked glass "T" top roof of which can easily be removed and
stored in the rear cargo area. Very clean chrome coated 5 spoke
wheels are noted on all 4 corners and as a bonus the original SS
wheels are included.
Keeping within the black theme we can see tuck and roll leather
buckets up front and a rear bench. Both the passenger's seat and
rear bench show minor wear and what can almost be called loose
material as denoted by the excess folds. The driver's seat has
taken the brunt of the use and shows age wear, minor staining, and
notable wear on the left side upper bolster. Recently installed
graphite colored carpet covers the floors and is protected by
Camaro SS carpeted floor mats in the front. A white knobbed floor
manual 6-speed shifter is seen within reach of the driver in the
center console and a plaque denoting this car at #2131 of the
Camaro Z28/SS cars built is attached for all to see. This car comes
with power locks, power windows, power mirrors, white face analog
gauges, an aftermarket JVC AM/FM/CD player, and air conditioning to
give you all the creature comforts you could want.
A powerful 350ci LT-1 fuel injected 305hp V8 sits rearward in the
engine bay, for more weight balance. A T56 6-speed manual
transmission is installed which sends power back to the 3.42 Posi
Traction geared 10-bolt rear axle.
Underneath remains very clean, with a structurally sound unibody,
4-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, independent front
suspension, and a torque arm with coil spring rear suspension. We
note a Flowmaster muffler and dual chrome tail pipes for that true
muscle car sound. Also, there is a severe tear in the passengers
rear unibody, most likely from being winched onto a trailer or
A quick starter and off to the test track. Here it shows every bit
of that extra hp with neck snapping acceleration, rail like
handling, and super smooth cruising. When you need a panic stop
brakes are totally bias free and work very well. All functions were
performing as they should on this Z28/SS Camaro save for the air
conditioning, (our consignor states this is due to a bad
compressor), and a check engine light due to no catalytic
Overall, a good example of the Z28/SS Camaro. Great color
combination, clean Carfax and powerful engine. This 1st year modern
Z28/SS is ripe for the picking. Let's do some doughnuts in the
parking lot to celebrate!!
