For Sale: 1987 Chevrolet Camaro in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1987 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Convertible really brings it all together. It's the first official year for the convertible, and this is an exceptionally preserved low-mileage example. And you have awesome original paint, a loaded leather interior, and the numbers-matching V8 to make this a terrific time capsule.


Bright Red is always a great factory color to have on a Camaro, and so it only gets better when you have a good shine on a sunshine-friendly convertible. But more than just the right color, this Camaro has a timeless sense of cool. The black hood inserts add a nice touch that complements the black headlight housings. In fact, black is used as the perfect accent color in places like the tail panel, and the triple stripe even fades into black. That's why this one also looks great with the black convertible top in place - it's almost like a two-tone! Even the Z28's sporty lower body kit coordinates with the special 15-inch alloys. But more than just great colors, what makes this one extra special is that it's a three-owner car that hasn't even filled in all the places on the odometer yet. It has a known history and terrific paperwork that lets you know it has been carefully preserved to be such a straight, clean, and shining example from the Camaro's 20th anniversary year.


Not only is this the Camaro's second-decade benchmark, but it's also the first official year of the convertible. You could get specialty drop-top versions built before this, and often not powered, but this is the first factory-backed one of its generation. So it breaks a dry spell of factory convertibles since 1969. It's a lot of history to know, but it also explains why the right people hold this in such high regard. For everyone else, they will just marvel at the optional red leather interior. It was a pricey option in 1987, and we have the window sticker to prove it. Low mileage means little seat time, and this upholstery looks awesome. It's loaded with the best factory features like power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And the power convertible top makes the roof disappear behind a stylish tonneau with ease. It's such a nice experience that we bet you'll add to the low odometer - especially because this is such a driver's machine. Your bucket seat power adjusts, there's a tilt steering column, and Chevy gives you a full set of crisp/clear readouts.


With a car so original this far, it's great to see the numbers-matching powerhouse look so well preserved, too. This is the High Output 305 cubic-inch powerplant, and this is basically the end of the era of the four-barrel carburetor. Some of us like that because it makes the cars easier to tune, but on a car this special, it's also nice to see it so unaltered thus far. This Z28 proves it's a great all-around classic for even long distances with the four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, and you even have cruise control! Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sway bars front & rear, and you know you'll enjoy driving this classic drop-top to plenty of shows.


A car of this caliber comes with terrific paperwork, like the factory buildsheet, original window sticker, owner's manual, and original delivery literature. There's even a car cover to properly tuck it in at night. This year's Camaro convertible celebrated many milestones, and this example likely does it with the best preserved and loaded dignity.
