LOW MILEAGE, SHOW STOPPING CONDITION, 100% FACTORY CORRECT, AMAZING TRUE Z28!!
If this 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 were ten years older than it is, it would be worth four times as much as we're asking. The lowdown is this: 100% matching numbers, 31,453 original miles, two owners from new, and complete with extensive documentation. In short, an investment-grade F-body for the guy who knows that these cars are going places in the coming years.
Aside from a show-quality repaint in the original code 15 Silver back in 2004, this car is stunningly well-preserved. Obviously, given the mileage and the ownership, there's never been any chance of accident or rust, so the original bodywork is just the way the factory workers installed it back in 1979. And to be honest with you, it's pretty darned nice. Cars from this era get a bad reputation, but this one is close enough to new to show us that the bodies were tight, the suspensions competent, and the interiors comfortable, and it's all part of the package with this gorgeous Z. A factory-correct decal kit was installed once the fresh paint was dry, and it remains crisp, sharp and ready to show at any level today. The body colored bumpers, the chin spoiler, and the deck lid spoiler all give it the definitive 1970s performance look and you'd be amazed by how much attention a car like this can attract. There are plenty of us who grew up thinking this was the hottest thing on wheels.
The gorgeous Carmine Red interior is 100% original and pretty much as crisp and bright as the day it rolled off the transporter. The bucket seats look completely untouched except for perhaps some very minor wear on the outer edge of the driver's lower seat cushion. Maybe. The door panels, carpets, and dash pad are like new, and thanks to a set of color-matched floor mats, it'll continue to look this good for a long while yet. They found five (yes, five) build sheets inside this car, and every one of the documents the unusual collection of options, which include factory A/C, cruise control, a tilt steering column, power windows and locks, and, oddly enough, radio delete. It's been in climate-controlled storage its whole life, so the plastic is all in excellent condition and the gauges remain bright and clear behind shiny lenses. Even the trunk still has the original unused space-saver spare and inflator bottle, plus all the original mats.
The top engine in 1979 was the Z/28's 350 cubic inch V8 and this one not only runs superbly, but remains in almost untouched factory condition. From the intake tube to the exhaust manifolds, it's 100% factory stock, with the only things being changed are routine maintenance items like plugs, hoses, clamps and other little stuff, but even those things were replaced with factory-correct pieces. The engine bay is very nicely detailed and still looks bright, with the only notable signs of age being on the bare cast iron parts and that's pretty much unavoidable. Backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic and a set of 3.42 gears, it's an entertaining ride, and even the factory exhaust system, complete with catalytic converter, remains intact. Beautiful aluminum wheels were the best of 1979 and carry fat 255/60/15 Goodyear radials.
Heavily documented with build sheets, pre-delivery inspection slips, mileage statements, and window stickers, this Camaro an extraordinary find. For your money, there's no more affordable investment than this. Call today!
