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
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.
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.
