Vehicle Description

1978 Camaro Rally Sport, Low Actual Miles 61K, Original.

Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this stunning 1978 Camaro Rally Sport which is excellent original condition with low actual miles of 61,681. This factory Camaro Rally Sport is quite rare being 1 of only 5696 produced with Type LT interior, see photo of trim tag below with Rally Sport code Z85. This Camaro Rally Sport features a beautiful repaint in factory Camel and Black with original rally sport decals, a beautiful original interior, and the original numbers matching 305 engine, see vin stamp photo below. This Camaro has no visible rust and is very solid with great lines. This Camaro is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Camel & Black (code 63 & 19) over Type LT Tan (code 62N) deluxe vinyl interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured below.

Exterior

The Black exterior is in beautiful restored condition. This Camaro was treated to a professional repaint in factory Camel & Black, and the original Rally Sport decals were preserved and taped off during the repaint. The paint is in great condition with no signs of visible rust and both bumpers are in great shape with no flaking or faded paint. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos. The Daytona tires have good tread left and are sized 215/70/14 and the OEM rally wheels are restored and are in good shape and shine nicely. All weather stripping and window sweeps are in great condition. Trunk is very solid and clean with the original trunk mat, original spare tire(which has never been on the road), and the original jack. All glass is "LOF" original glass.

Interior

The Type LT Tan vinyl interior of this Camaro Rally Sport is in excellent original condition. The original Type LT seat covers are in excellent condition with no major wear, seam splits, or rips or tears. These are the original seat covers not some cheap aftermarket replacements. The carpet is original and still looks good with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original dash is in excellent condition with no cracks or fading and the dash bezel is in great condition as well. The stereo has been upgraded to a two prong digital cassette player and thankfully the dash has not been cut for a modern stereo. An old school power booster/equalizer is still working properly and located in the map pocket. The package tray is in great condition and the headliner is like new with no sagging or stains. The original Type LT door panels are in great condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. All interior and exterior lights and gauges work as they should. The horn, wipers, stereo, heater and amazingly the cigarette lighter still works. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever.

Mechanical

This Camaro is in great mechanical condition with only 61,681 actual miles on the original 305 engine. We drove this Camaro over 250 miles to our shop in Cincinnati and it performed exceptionally well, did not run hot, rode tight, and was a true joy to drive. In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs well. This Camaro is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs excellent. The brakes do not pull and stop very well. This Camaro has been upgraded to true dual exhaust with headers. Also, the engine is meticulously clean and factory correct and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. Chrome valve covers and water neck have been added. This is a factory non AC car which really unclutters the engine bay.

Any monetary deposit on any available car is a commitment to buy and therefore non refundable.
