CGP Z28 LT-1 V8, AUTO, POSI, PWR FRONT DISCS, PWR STEER, GREAT PAINT, 85K MILES.
There's a huge growing love for the 2nd generation Camaros. It only gets better when it is a F41 optioned Z28 built to show off the best of this breed.
This is a sweet spot for some Camaro lovers. The first few years of the 2nd generation cars carried a nice mixture of European fastback lines with some bold American touches. The pinnacle of this was the RS package that gave these pony cars some serious attitude. The split-bumper, with the flexible Endura front end (a feature borrowed from Pontiac), gave these Camaros a wide mouth that made them look like they would eat anything that got in their way. This kind of mean styling deserves this metallic green paint with black interior. In fact, the car was originally copper with a tan inside, but it was changed because this current color combo better represents both the car's era and its aggressiveness, and we love the look. Everything else is as it should be, including the rally wheels white paint stripes, and front and rear spoilers. This Camaro is honest right down to the included owner's manual, maintenance records, and restoration receipts.
The interior features the original high-backed bucket seats, which debuted for the 1971 model year. These are a welcomed addition for anyone spending real time behind the wheel of this coupe. Because the color was changed over to black, this means the carpets, door panels, seat covers, center console, etc., have all been updated and refreshed. The interior is also a much quieter place thanks to Dynamat insulation, and new glass all around, giving this car a proper seal from the outside. The original horseshoe shifter is a cool piece to hold on to even if you're not trying to bang your own way through the three-speed automatic. The whole interior feels genuine, right down to the gauges, which show the accurate 85k mileage. Those who like these kinds of details will also notice the original-style houndstooth trunk mat.
Under the hood, the engine is not the original, but instead, it's something a bit better. 1971 had a measurable drop in power when emissions regulations resulted in the compression ratio going from 11.0:1 to 9.0:0. This one is a 1971-correct CGP Z28 LT-1 small-block V8, but the compression ratio has been restored to 11.0:0. This also means the 360 hp has returned. This isn't just some old leaded unit that was dropped under the hood. The valve seals have been hardened, and the V8 was rebuilt 3,000 miles ago. During that service the original TH400 was replaced by a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission that was rebuilt too, and that includes a B&M shift kit. This power is run to a Z28-correct 10-bolt rear end with 3.73 gear ratio and Positraction. The rear end performance has been enhanced replacing the original sway bar with new Hotchkiss suspension components. Also aiding performance is the Flowmaster Series 40 dual exhaust. Getting all this power to halt is easier thanks to power front discs brakes on new BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
This is the kind of Camaro that looks and feels like the best of the 1970s, but has been cared for and maintained for all these years so someone new can come along and enjoy it in modern times. You will get the looks in this sharp runner. Call today!
