CLEAN & SHARP! TEXAS CAR, LARGELY SURVIVOR, STOCK, AUTO, T-TOPS, DRIVES GREAT!

If you grew up in the '80s, the Camaro was the machine to own for prowling the streets looking for a race. Today, finding one in solid, original condition that hasn't been pounded into the ground or questionably modified in someone's backyard is virtually impossible. Fortunately, this 1988 Chevrolet Camaro is such a car. Highly original and wearing a handsome black tuxedo, this car will help you relive the days when gas was under $1.00 and horsepower was cheap.

Yes, a lot of these cars got repaints and gaudy graphics, but the finish on this Camaro appears to be the original shade high-gloss black, and we must say that it's held up surprisingly we ll. Sure, there are some minor chips on the nose and the paint is slightly thinner in front of the T-tops, but that's very common, and the rest of the finish still has a great shine and deep finish. That's saying a lot if you're at all familiar with the quality of GM paints from the '80s, and the fact that this one shows as a top driver-quality car is a testament to how it's been babied since new. As a result, it looks exactly right as a great survivor, with that glossy paint shaving years off its age. In fact, having seen what these cars looked ... Please ask for the full description.

CLEAN & SHARP! TEXAS CAR, LARGELY SURVIVOR, STOCK, AUTO, T-TOPS, DRIVES GREAT!

If you grew up in the '80s, the Camaro was the machine to own for prowling the streets looking for a race. Today, finding one in solid, original condition that hasn't been pounded into the ground or questionably modified in someone's backyard is virtually impossible. Fortunately, this 1988 Chevrolet Camaro is such a car. Highly original and wearing a handsome black tuxedo, this car will help you relive the days when gas was under $1.00 and horsepower was cheap.

Yes, a lot of these cars got repaints and gaudy graphics, but the finish on this Camaro appears to be the original shade high-gloss black, and we must say that it's held up surprisingly we ll. Sure, there are some minor chips on the nose and the paint is slightly thinner in front of the T-tops, but that's very common, and the rest of the finish still has a great shine and deep finish. That's saying a lot if you're at all familiar with the quality of GM paints from the '80s, and the fact that this one shows as a top driver-quality car is a testament to how it's been babied since new. As a result, it looks exactly right as a great survivor, with that glossy paint shaving years off its age. In fact, having seen what these cars looked like new, I'd have to say that this Camaro always slept in a warm garage while under the care of its careful owners. A lifetime in Texas helped the preservation along as well, and despite the near 30+ year old design, it still looks streamlined and slick with the aggressive front fascia, the lower-body kit that wraps around the entire car, and the cool optional wing out back. And quite frankly I'm glad it's devoid of any decals or IROC graphics that pretend to be something that it's not, because the result is a slicked-out Camaro that looks timeless and fast while standing still.

Inside, the Camaro sports a beautiful original interior that's further proof of a life lived easy, making it one of the cleanest 3rd generation Camaros we've seen in a long time. The gray cloth fabric is comfortable and perfect for cruising, and the two types of fabric used on the seats give them a very stylish look that works well even today. Original door panels remain in good condition and the trunk area wears the same gray carpets as the rest of the interior, all of which are in very good shape. By the late '80s most of these came loaded with accessories and options, and this one includes power windows and locks, cold A/C, a tilt steering column, T-tops, and a rear defogger. It also carries an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo system that sounds great, an aftermarket alarm system, plus a full complement of gauges just ahead of the driver. That steering wheel is definitely a child of '80s brutalist design, and the dash looks so darn good we think it might be a recent replacement - which would make sense because the GM OEM units from that era started cracking and splitting practically the moment they left the factory. The T-Tops are in great shape and provide instant fun-in-the-sun cruising, and they stow away inside bags that fit easily in the spacious cargo area out back.

1988 Camaros had a choice of engines, and according to the RPO codes this one landed the L03 305 V8 with throttle-body injection that pumped out a fairly impressive 170 horsepower. Fuel injection was in its infancy, but it delivered impressive torque, and as history has shown it's reliable and highly tunable should you want to add a few ponies to the party. It starts with a modest rumble from the stock exhaust system, and idles like it has a bit of an attitude, letting everyone know that there's still some fight left in this vintage coupe. It pulls hard, makes great V8 noises, and the 4-speed automatic is a perfect companion, just stomp and steer. Out back there's a 2.77 cog in the rear end, making this an extremely capable high-speed cruiser that pulls down decent fuel economy, especially for a modern muscle car. The Camaro's handling is top-notch for the era with the assistance of power steering and power front disc brakes, the chassis is incredibly solid, and it wears fat 245/45/17 tires wrapped around chrome IROC wheels for a little added flash.

Go ahead, try to find a nicer, unmolested, unabused 3rd generation Camaro at this price-point. Or you can simply give us a call and take this one home today!
