For Sale: 1977 Chevrolet Camaro in Wayne, Michigan

Vehicle Description

The 1977 Z28 Camaro was introduced at the 1977 Daytona 500 in a Chevrolet display. Monday morning Z28 Lovers flocked to dealers trying to order their beloved auto that was discontinued for 1976 car production. This beloved Z28 was ordered by it's original owner for his wife and he bought a new 1977 Corvette for him in California and the Z28 was built at the Los Angeles plant. He special ordered it in Black with Black vinyl interior. Air Conditioning. Power steering and Power Disc Brakes. AM FM 8 track stereo. This car has never been taken apart or restored. 85,000 original miles. The original owners wife always complained she would sweat on the vinyl seats after just two months so he went back and ordered The optional vinyl and black cloth inserts and had the dealer install them crisis with the wife avoided. The California built Z28's were coded way differently than the Norwood cars thus the non"Z28" stamped on the cowl tag. You could not get a 4 speed either in California. These cars were rushed to production to try and fill orders. This beautiful example was built 03B The second week of March. These cars used the Corvette LM1 engines 170 hp. This engine block has casting number 3970010. it was assembled feb22 1977. This engine has never been out of the car. CHZ is the code which means uncertain usage. This was used in a lot of first series built Z28 until they could catch up on orders. It has the special block with the dipstick tube on the drivers side and the special oil pan for that left provision clearance. There was a recall on this dip stick tube that would rub on the air conditioning tube causing it to rub thru. This car has had that recall procedure done. The carb number is #17057204 0457 that is 45 day of 1977. The distributor is # 103246 7B4 , Feb 1977. The exhaust manifolds are Rt. 346248 and Lft. 364747. It is standard bore. This original engine has had the normal maintenance performed to make reliable and be able to drive anywhere for any length of time. This car runs exec. no smoke or burning of oil. The fast idle choke works great. This car was tuned and hardly driven. The original transmission was rebuilt 2 years ago with a small performance shit kit and a 2500 stall converter which greatly improved this cars performance big time. It lets the engine come out harder from a dead stop and squawks the tires when you hit second. There is only 20 miles since it was redone. The original rear end is Dated First of March 1977 and is a 3:42 Positive traction unit. This car has the original space saver spare and jack assembly. It has the original trunk mat. All the original jack instruction stickers are on the underside of the deck lid. This car has factory A/C Delco rear air ride shock absorbers added by current owner with new Monroe Matic heavy duty gas shocks for the front. This car has only had one repaint years ago and shows really awesome and is very glossy and shiny. very few imperfections. There is absolutely no rust or rust issues. Never hit or in any accident. Everything works excellent. The 8 track stereo system works great also. The original door sticker with the vin and Tire size decals are still there. First owner had it until he was 85 yrs old. that was in 2012. He sold it to a Mustang restoration shop in Missouri in early 2012 because they knew each other. they sold it on Ebay Motors a few months later to Current owner who has only put 200 miles on it since. The original owner sold both cars only because he was getting up there in age and did not want to have his wife deal with selling the cars if he passed away first. The current 3rd owner is a very fussy person and his cars have to be very well maintained and in excellent driving and running cars. This car was always in perfect weather conditions heated in winter and air conditioned in summer. All new Aluminized performance exhaust with performance turbo mufflers. all new front suspension ball joints, tie rods etc. New heavy duty coil springs in the front and new heavy duty rear leaf springs. New Radiator core. New Tune up spark plugs , wires cap and rotor. all new brakes. The current owner had a 1974 Black 4 speed Z28 when he was in high school and looked for years for that same car but could never find one. This was up to his standards in what he likes being mostly original and being very picky on condition. After buying it on Ebay from hardly owned second owners he put the aluminum non painted bumpers and non painted front and rear polished window mouldings on to look like his 1974 Z28. We have the original painted aluminum bumpers and window trim. They are excellent and could be put back on. You would be hard pressed to find another Z28 in this condition. all the hard research was done on this car. These are really hard to find in this condition. Especially only starting to be built at the end of Feb in 1977.
