1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
The Z28 code was the RPO code they used when the 67 Camaro was to
be ordered with an engine that met the specs of the SCCA Racing.
That engine had to have less than 305 cubic inches. So, Chevy took
a 327 block, installed a 283 crank, and got a 302.
For consignment a 1996 Chevrolet Camaro with that all important Z28
RPO code. This one with 139K miles has been upgraded with some
performance parts and shows well. A clean Carfax and well
maintained, just a few areas of some wear, but overall good!
From tip to toe, top to bottom, and everywhere in between, we see a
2013 respray of Bright Red and looking just fab! Integrated
bumpers, body matching, front and rear melt into the steel body
panels which are straight and present well with only a few
inclusions and a crack in the driver's rear quarter panel. A few
strategically placed pieces of black trim are seen throughout, and
add just a bit of downplay to the red. Fog lights are upfront to
light the way. Up top are 2 removable tinted glass roof panels and
just behind the B pillar is a curved greenhouse glass enclosure for
the rear passengers, as well as any of their gear to store in the
back. On the back, the curvaceous spoiler runs the width of the
arched rear, and large taillights peek out from underneath as well
as auxiliary backup lights for added safety at night. Factory
16-inch saw blade style wheels are on all 4 corners.
Black leather is covering all the seating surfaces which present
high back buckets upfront, and a small rear 2 plus 2 bench. These
are in good condition with some wear off on the drivers' bolsters.
Some wide stitched areas are covering the inserts and smooth
overstuffed leather is on the bolsters. The door panels that cozy
up to the seats are a mix of leather and molded plastic and blend
right into the dash and seats when the doors are closed, and you
are in ready to go mode. We see power windows, power locks, and
A/C. Black carpet floods the floors, and the dash is all original
and all clean as a whistle. A digital readout Kenwood aftermarket
AM/FM/CD/MP3 player is replacing the factory radio, and all is just
wonderful with the interior world.
Under the hood is the correct 5.7 liter LT-1 V8 with fuel injection
to feed it the go juice and an upgraded performance MTD distributor
and cold air intake to handle the air and spark. A T56 6-speed
manual transmission with a newer clutch slave cylinder is on back,
10-bolt 3.42 rear axle. Per our consignor's notes a new hydraulic
roller cam and lifter was installed in 2017, the AC compressor was
replaced in 2019, a new clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing
and starter was installed in 2020, and a new radiator was installed
Showing some of its age and mileage, surface rust coats the
suspension and driveshaft/differential. Floor pans have been
treated to a rust proofing in black so there is no rust for the
floor pans or rockers. Some of the front section of the framing and
floor pans have not been sprayed and remain in the factory Bright
Red. Power disc brakes are on all around and for the exhaust we
note a Borla cat back system. Giving the essential Z28 ride and
handling is an independent front suspension with coil spring and in
the rear a torque arm and coil spring arrangement. The suspension
has been lowered to improve handling and competition shocks and
struts have been added all the way around.
She fires right up and runs smoothly. As noted, this LT-1 5.7 Liter
V8 engine can take you from zero to 60 in a flash with nice solid
handling, and quick braking. All functions were in working order
for this test drive, but we did note the radio has lost its
An aero version of the former and current iteration of the Camaro
muscle car. Looking very clean, just a few minor areas of wear,
tons of routine maintenance and performance upgrade performed
during our consignor's ownership period make for a mechanically
sound piece of modern muscle. The price is definitely right...Come
