For Sale: 1986 Chevrolet Camaro in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is very happy to offer this stunning 1986 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z. If you grew up in the '80s, this was the car to beat on the street, with an awesome combination of traditional muscle car acceleration and impressive handling. Repainted in White Diamond Pearl to a very high standard, the new finish is a welcome update from its original plain white. With new decals installed at the same time, it's the ideal throwback to the 80s that still looks like a million dollars today. This car has never been wrecked or rusty, obviously, and it feels tight and well-composed. That's all proof that this car has led a very easy Texas life, unlike so many of its siblings which were often victims of their low price and high performance. The ground effects remain in great shape, and it still carries its original fog lamps up front. Things like the taillights, the weather seals, and even the black inserts on the hood remain bright, crisp, and clear. With black and gray two-tone bucket seats, this Camaro is a lot more upscale than its price tag would suggest, both then and now. The interior is in pristine condition, having been redone from its original red, and it has a comfortable, welcoming look. That cloth upholstery holds you in place during spirited driving, and with a long list of comfort and convenience options this one is a no-compromises muscle car. R134a A/C, power windows, a tilt steering column, cruise control, and an AM/FM radio all make the IROC feel like the top-of-the-line car that it is. The center console houses most of the controls, plus the shifter for the 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission that matches nicely with the leather-wrapped wheel. The back seat is in superb condition and folds down to make the cargo area downright massive. GM's bulletproof and powerful 5.0-liter V-8 with Tuned-Port Injection was the standard engine on the IROC and was more than competitive with the Ford unit from across town. As a small block Chevy, it's also insanely easy to modify, which also explains why so many Camaros went to meet their makers prematurely. Twist the key and it fires quickly, settling into a cackling V-8 idle that ideally suits the flashy muscle car. Lots of fresh maintenance parts under the hood means that this one has been loved, and thanks to a lifetime in the warm, dry south, the chassis is impressively tidy for being more than 30 years old. The original 16-inch alloys are in outstanding condition with no curb rash and wear 245/50/16 B.F. Goodrich performance radials. More than just a nice driver, this car still commands respect on the street and will surely have a future in the collector car world, and with that curb appeal, it won't last long.
