Vehicle Description

1985 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

Where did the Z28 moniker come from? It was the next code after Z27 on the RPO list. In 1967 GM wanted to produce just enough Camaros for racing in the Trans Am series, they developed a car for it but couldn't come up with a name for it. The RPO assigned to this package was Z28, so they called it that since it was a catchy phrase. In 1968 it became a separate model for Camaros.

For consignment, a beautiful example of the Z28 from 1985 with its original window sticker and build sheet. With an odometer statement of a mere 20,408, although this cannot be verified as the title reads exempt. This 2 owner car has been garaged all its life, was special ordered, sports a 5.0 Liter 4-barrel and 5-speed manual transmission, and a beautiful original interior. For starting instructions it sums it up the best..consigner says turn the key and go!

Bathed in arrest me red, Medium Red actually, which is excellent, we can see integrated bumpers, black window trimmings and surrounds, and a nicely preserved gold surrounding stripe that encircles the car. This is wide on the bottom and has a trio of fading to darker smaller stripes directly above, also encircling the vehicle. The panels are straight and minding their gaps very nicely. Up front are dual rectangle headlights embedded deep within the front assembly flanking the vented hood. On the back is a snazzy small spoiler at the bottom of a curved tinted greenhouse glass rear window, and this wraps tail lights which include brake lights, turn signals, and the backup lights all in a row. 15-inch factory gold 5 spoke rectangular star pattern wheels are on, and sport a black center hub, with a Camaro badge in the center. Awesome.

As we swing the large dual doors, we shake hands with pristine door panels in angle striped tweedish broadcloth on top and warm tan carpet below. In keeping with the 1980's square and rectangle design a black plastic panel houses the door handle, side view mirror adjuster toggle, and the top of the interior door pull. Slipping into the passenger compartment, we sit upon angled striped dark and light tan/brown broadcloth bolsters, and simple clean tan broadcloth inserts which remain very clean and not worn in the least. Some piping adds an accent nicely. A rear duo of more buckets broken up by the hump is in the back and could be called 2 plus 2 style. Racing up the center, is a square and rectangle designed console in black which houses a glovebox, power window toggles, and the manual shift lever. Moving upward to meet the dash is the digital radio, and temperature and airflow controls. For the dash a black textured plastic panel houses several round black bezeled analog gauges, with the speedometer reading a mere 20,408 miles. Gold carpet covers the floors, and is clean. A tan felt headliner in near perfect condition floats above the passenger compartment and rounds out the interior.

A clean, original and consignor stated numbers matching 305 ci LG4 V8 is shoehorned within this pristine bay. Supple hoses and clean corrosion free parts are attached to every corner of this power plant. A single factory 4-barrel carburetor is atop, and a Borg Warner numbers matching 5-speed manual transmission is on back, throwing power rearward to a 10 bolt 3.23 rear axle.

All rust free, original structural steel, floor pans and unibody construction is seen underneath, and represents the low mileage. All structurally sound under here thanks to the Rusty Jones undercoating done when new and showing the independent coil spring front suspension and torque arm with coil springs for the rear. Power disc brakes are all around. A dual outlet exhaust option is in this car.

Super quick fire up with barely a crank with a few pumps of the gas pedal and I was off to the test track. Here this performed perfectly, with good acceleration, nice handling, and awesome stopping power. All the interior workings were working, and all is well inside and outside.

A low mileage example, well kept by its fastidious owners/friends, and driven solely for enjoyment as it should be. Pristine condition, and beautifully clean interior, just hop in and turn the key and you are off like we were.
