The appeal of this 1978 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is as clear as black
and white - literally. A full color-match package on this
aggressive machine combined with some great performance upgrades to
the V8 creates an irresistible package at a value price.
You know you love the look of these later 2nd generation Camaros, as we do. The angular design could have almost passed for European if it weren't for all the aggressive Z28-style touches, like the chin spoiler that wraps around to the wheel openings, fender vent, and the full-length spoiler out back. Plus, that long hood scoop always makes a great first impression. But what we enjoy most about this one is its comprehensive packaging. The white paint has a great shine, and it's the perfect backdrop for all the blacked-out accents like the grille, light surrounds, and tail panel. It all comes together on the Z/28's iconic stripe package that fades from black to white all down the side, under the spoiler, and even on the Air Induction hood. It's such a well-coordinated package, even the Z/28-specific wheels are part of the color scheme. In total, it really gives this coupe's timeless appeal.
Inside the black is the perfect complement to the exterior accent color. The dark finish is well preserved on the cloth bucket seats, door panels, and carpeting. This is comfortable for everyone, with desirable features like an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input, power windows, and air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved for the driver. The sporty steering wheel and full gauge dashboard give this Z a performance feel, and you'll love resting your right arm between the center console and upgraded B&M shifter.
Buying a Z/28 in '78 meant you got Chevy's trusty and powerful 350 cubic-inch V8, but regulations did take some of the power away. This coupe rectifies that by upgrading the motor to give you everything you wished for back then. A Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and Hooker headers add a serious performance that you feel from the moment you twist the key and hear the dual exhaust roar. This is a true driver's car with sway bars front & rear, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
This is one '78 Camaro that really has the power to back up its aggressive appearance. No one expects true performance like this from these good-looking coupes, so it will be tough to find a better classy classic for this price. Call now!!
