1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z28
A concept created partially by Roger Penske, the International Race
of Champions or IROC would pit all-star drivers from numerous
venues of racing, against each other in similarly prepared cars.
Except for the first season, those cars were provided by Chevrolet,
and they chose to feature the Camaro.
This IROC version of the 1988 Camaro is in full IROC street garb.
Special decal badging, a low-slung windshield, some fairings, a "T"
top in removable smoked glass, 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. A consignor stated 35,485
original but not verifiable mileage and very clean overall both in
and out example.
Dark Red Metallic covers the straight steel body panels, fairings
and front built in spoiler of the car. A curved glass rear
greenhouse deck offering up plenty of storage, and a bag for the T
tops is seen on back. IROC Z badging in red fade is seen on each
door, as well as IROC-Z tuned port injection in a red to orange
fade badge on the front lower fender. Hood louvers and a removable
smoked glass "T" top are optioned on this car. Polished 16-inch 5
spoked Camaro mags are attached to all 4 corners and noted as
"front" and "rear" wheels because of different offsets. Lower
rocker portion of this car is very clean and presents as a nicely
cared for 35,485 mile car.
A snazzy gray tweed and broadcloth bowls you over in bucket seat
configuration shows Camaro stitched into the lower seat back. The
bolsters are smooth and all bordered with varying degrees of gray
piping. This also holds true for the rear 2 plus 2 seats which
individually fold down for rear compartment access. A black console
and dash, house all the critical instrumentation, as well as
climate controls, radio and Hurst T handle shift lever, (the
original knob is included with the purchase). Power windows are
installed. Power locks and power toggle mirrors actuators are
equipped on the gray tweed door panels along with a black plastic
sill, gray vinyl armrest, and carpeted lower panel. The factory
steering wheel, leather wrapped I might add, fronts the deeply
inset round gauge cluster which resides under a crack free black
dash pad. Gray carpeting floods the floors and is topped with the
factory gray carpeted mats. Up top, a mostly tight gray broadcloth
headline splits the removable glass roof assemblies.
The Tuned Port Injection 5.0 Liter gives plenty of smooth power,
220 horses of it actually. This is fed with electronic fuel
injection. Meanwhile, on the back is a Tremec T5 5-speed manual
transmission. All this sends power back to a 10-bolt Positraction
rear axle with the optional 3.45 gearing. Our consignors also notes
that a performance chip has been added to up the ponies just a
Some surface rust is noted on the suspension and driveshaft and
rear pumpkin. The floor pans are solid, as is the unibody
construction. Rear drum brakes are on and front discs, all power
help this racer stop dependably. Independent coil spring front
suspension, and torque arm suspension for the rear is seen. A
Flowmaster exhaust is now installed.
As I sat inside, I was harkened back to my mid 1980's memories with
the T top off and screaming down the highway going to the shore.
This car fired right up, and the test track proved all those
memories true, a great cruiser, smooth accelerator, and good
handling. The cassette player was working so I popped in my Peter
Gabriel "Sledgehammer" cassette while I cruised.
For my test drive I wanted to keep the mileage at a low low 35,484
but went .25 over! A lovely car, wonderful color scheme, and a good
driver. Near showroom clean, spending most of its time in good warm
salt free weather, all the while treated to Mobile-1 oil changes
and ethanol free fuel. Stop by our Hallowed Halls and let this
Camaro IROC your world!
