TOTALLY CUSTOM Z28, BUILT 350 V8, ROLL CAGE, COMPLETE SHOW QUALITY CAR!
If you were one of the millions of guys who had Farrah Fawcett in that red swimsuit on your bedroom wall, your car awaits. This 1979 Camaro Z28 is proof that the muscle car didn't die, it just went on an extended vacation in the mid-70s. With a freshly rebuilt 350, T-tops, and that searing red paint job, you won't be sneaking around in this one, but then again, why would you want to?
The color isn't the car's original hue, but combined with the charcoal metallic SS stripes and a steel GM cowl induction hood, this sucker looks better than any factory Z ever built. The shape is pure 1970s, but the overall look is a tasteful update that gives the sleek F-body the look that the designers always longed for but couldn't quite achieve. The quality is excellent, with a great shine and careful attention to detail on the stripes themselves, which definitely bring back memories of the first-gen Camaro. The aggressive chin spoiler shows no marks from run-ins with parking curbs and the ducktail spoiler out back is one of the more aggressive pieces of the period. Judging by the condition of the urethane bumpers, the grille, and the taillights, I'd wager that this car has spent a good amount of its life indoors, used only as a fair-weather toy.
The makeover completely transforms the formerly plain-Jane F-body interior. The buckets look familiar, but they're now covered in custom gray cloth upholstery with red piping that ties in quite neatly with the bodywork. The 6-point roll cage is impossible to hide, but its presence suggests that there's a lot more to this Camaro than just good looks. Like the bodywork, the interior is in great shape with no splits or tears in the seat covers and very little wear, even on the driver's side bolster, which always takes the most abuse. White-faced Auto Meter instruments fill the original dash and look right flanked by custom aluminum inserts, giving it a racecar look inside. This Z also includes a tilt column with custom leather-wrapped wheel, a center console with Hurst T-handle shifter, and an AM/FM/CD stereo. Open the trunk and you'll find a big bottle of nitrous, the rest of the custom stereo setup, and a master shut-off switch.
The engine is a built 350 that was built for combat. The list of horsepower-enhancers is long and includes stuff like a Holley 650 double-pumper carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, a Pete Jackson gear drive for that nasty racecar sound, and, of course, the nitrous system. And despite the race-ready hardware, the sucker looks ready for the show field with Chevy Orange paint and very neatly installed plumbing and electrical system. A few chrome bits, a big aluminum radiator, and ceramic-coated long-tube headers make for an ultra-clean look up top, a theme that continues underneath. You'll note the fresh floors, X-pipe exhaust with Flowmasters, and the Super T10 4-speed manual that hangs on a scattershield, just in case. Big sway bars, a new gas tank, and all-new plumbing and wiring make this a turn-key supercar that's shockingly affordable. A big part of its modern look is thanks to the flashy aluminum Centerline wheels, which wear 245/45/17 front and 285/40/17 rear performance radials. Second-generation Camaros are seeing upward movement as hobbyists look to the cars of their youth, and there aren't many that can run with this one. Call today!
