For Sale: 1980 Chevrolet Camaro in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

There's no doubting the F1 Camaro's significance in the collector car world. Like the '57 Bel Air and C2 Corvette, first-generation F-Bodies are considered one of the all-time great Chevrolet classics. That said, the popularity of second-generation Camaros is certainly growing. Ask any young enthusiast what their favorite year panther is and you're just as likely to hear "1970" "1973" or "1980" as "1967", "1968" or "1969". But here's the kicker: at this point in time, there simply aren't that many really nice F2s on the market. And that's why it's a great idea to get ahead of the curve by investing a little money in this clean cruiser. Sporting a correct 350/4-speed drivetrain and conservative Dark Blue over Oyster aesthetics, this Z is a vision of opportunistic '80s performance. And, as a fully sorted cruiser that's benefitted from over 40 years of excellent maintenance, it's a solid piece of classic car potential that's available for relatively modest money!

WORKING MAN'S FERRARI

General Motors envisioned the second-generation Camaro as a working man's Ferrari and, thanks to a better timeframe and bigger budget, effectively addressed many of the complaints enthusiasts had about the F1. Longer, wider, lower to the ground and more aggressive, the 'hugger' was certainly more of a driver's car, and is widely regarded as some of the best iron Detroit ever produced. Born in Norwood, Ohio, this F2 has been exceptionally maintained by fastidious owners for over 42 years. The car's solid sheetmetal, a sporty profile that's supplemented with correct door guards and factory T-tops, reflects subdued Dark Blue Metallic pigment. Tri-color emblems, Silver stripes and tri-color taillights highlight satin grilles, satin buckets, correct spoilers, and original brightwork. And, as far as we can tell, this coupe has never been fully disassembled, with the aforementioned owners choosing to wear the car's weathering as a badge of honor.

CHEVY 350

Tilt this Chevy's long hood and you'll find a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that proudly displays a correct 14010207 casting number. The car's big Quadrajet carburetor, sealed to a single-snorkel, cowl induction air cleaner, funnels life in to a correct, cast iron intake. At the sides of that intake, correct heads hang stamped and painted valve covers over coated Hedman Hedders. Behind those tubes, a Delco-Remy distributor sequences fire through pliable AC Delco plug wires. The car's factory air conditioning system has been thoughtfully updated with R134a. And the car's factory-spec aesthetics mix smooth, Satin Black framing with a vivid GM Corporate Blue core.

PUTTING THE F41 IN Z28

In 1980, the only transmission you wanted in your Z28 was a tough Borg Warner Super T10 4-speed, and that's exactly what lives behind this car's stout small block. Naturally, that gear slinger centers a correct 13-04-065-904 casting number in front of a correct, posi-traction axle that's stuffed with correct, 3.08 gears. That driveline hangs in a correct F41 Sport Suspension, which combines correct power steering with correct power front disc and rear drum brakes. Those bones are dissected by aluminized exhaust, which centers a big X-pipe in front of Pypes Street Pro mufflers. Above those tubes, solid floors wear thick undercoating. And those floors roll on factory alloy wheels, which spin 225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around snazzy Z28 center caps.

1980s STYLE

Open the car's big doors and you'll find a correct Deluxe Interior that's been maintained to factory specifications. A quartet of cloth buckets is free of significant wear. In front of those seats, a muted dash hangs direct-fit audio under a full array of factory telemetry. At the bottom of that dash, a muted console centers a chrome shifter and buttons for correct power windows on fade-free carpet that's protected by color-keyed floor mats. Opposite that console, one-piece door panels frame correct power door locks. And the driver stays connected through a familiar, 4-spoke steering wheel, which laps a correct tilt column.

One of the world's most enduring combinations of performance and style, classic Camaros present excellent opportunity for savvy enthusiasts. And, because of their cool aesthetics, second-generation cars are likely to rise in both value and demand. With its tidy appearance and correct drivetrain, this fully sorted coupe is the kind of old school muscle that can make any enthusiast happy. And for the low asking, it's one heck of a deal!
