1997 CHEVROLET 30 ANNIVERSARY T-TOP Z-28. 46,000 MILES, Never been driven in the rain, Always garaged, This is truly one of the next wave of collector cars.
The fourth-generation Camaros hold a special place in many Camaro-lovers' hearts simply because they were such over-achievers. This car is simply way faster than it should have been and its performance is legendary today. This one shows 46,400 original miles, so it's been driven a bit, but it has also been treated like a collector's piece, so the bright Arctic White paint with Hugger Orange stripes remains in excellent condition overall. There are no dents or dings (of course, most of the Camaro was plastic by this point) it remains in outstanding shape. It's got the distinctive neatly integrated wing out back. There is no chrome or other bright trim, and just about everything was dipped in white paint before being bolted on, so it has a very clean, monochromatic look that works well.
The bright white seats with black carpets, dash, and door panels looks flashy but is a step back from the pace car's orange houndstooth and therefore may be a bit more palatable to today's buyers. The leather chairs remain in excellent condition and bely their age with sparkling white surfaces and no signs of age or wear. The carpets are equally nice, protected by a set of monogrammed Z-28 30 anniversary floor mats. Just about everything was standard, including A/C, power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, cruise control, and interval wipers, and this anniversary edition sports an automatic transmission, making it a blast to drive under any conditions. The gauges are bright and clear and it still carries its original AM/FM/CD stereo that sounds pretty darned good, and with that 350 V-8 and that throaty Z-28 exhaust singing along. Everything works, of course, and even the trunk is neatly outfitted with a neat storage compartment that keeps your stuff out of sight.
Chevy's 350 cubic inch engine really needs no introduction. It was rumored to have been de-tuned for use in the F-body, but it's no slouch in the performance department and there's a long list of upgrades available from the aftermarket. Fortunately, this car has none of them, remaining 100% stock. It remains a potent machine that deserves respect. The engine bay is clean and well-maintained with everything still OEM. The 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission snaps through the gears with real authority and 3.42 gears out back make it feel very light on its feet. It's also got powerful disc brakes at all four corners, a cackling exhaust system, and those gorgeous A-Mold wheels that were painted to match and fitted with 235/50 ZR-16 performance radials.
This 30th Anniversary collector Z-28 was an awesome find, and now I am offering it to the public. If you want a
perfect Z-28 with no stories and all documentation since new, this is the one.
