WOW! REAL DEAL Z/28! FRESH RESTO, NUMBERS MATCH 350 V8, AUTO, A/C, VERY SHARP!

The second-generation Camaros have finally moved beyond the mullet and are bona-fide collectors' items today. This end-of-the-line 1981 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 reminds us why these cars are so cool: great looks, great colors, great performance, and a great price. For entry-level muscle that gets respect, this Z is a slam-dunk.

Even after 11 years, the Z/28 was still one of the most formidable machines you could buy, and while this one looks straight out of the '80s, there's more to that than meets the eye. The car was repainted using the original Code 75 Red (upper and lower) color combination, as well as a freshened set of Z/28 decals that are just as cool as you remember. Sure, it's a little flashy, but nothing like the brown or yellow versions, never mind the Firebird from corporate cousin Pontiac and its gold trim. The bodywork underneath is in very good shape with panel fit that is typical of the era, so no demerits there. And the finish is pure driver-quality, not too nice and certainly not at all weak, just the perfect amount of shine, depth, and clarity you'd expect from a strong driver that's armed-and-ready to turn heads. A center-mounted "power dome" hood is a nice update on the ... Please ask for the full description.

WOW! REAL DEAL Z/28! FRESH RESTO, NUMBERS MATCH 350 V8, AUTO, A/C, VERY SHARP!

The second-generation Camaros have finally moved beyond the mullet and are bona-fide collectors' items today. This end-of-the-line 1981 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 reminds us why these cars are so cool: great looks, great colors, great performance, and a great price. For entry-level muscle that gets respect, this Z is a slam-dunk.

Even after 11 years, the Z/28 was still one of the most formidable machines you could buy, and while this one looks straight out of the '80s, there's more to that than meets the eye. The car was repainted using the original Code 75 Red (upper and lower) color combination, as well as a freshened set of Z/28 decals that are just as cool as you remember. Sure, it's a little flashy, but nothing like the brown or yellow versions, never mind the Firebird from corporate cousin Pontiac and its gold trim. The bodywork underneath is in very good shape with panel fit that is typical of the era, so no demerits there. And the finish is pure driver-quality, not too nice and certainly not at all weak, just the perfect amount of shine, depth, and clarity you'd expect from a strong driver that's armed-and-ready to turn heads. A center-mounted "power dome" hood is a nice update on the traditional cowl-induction setup and it's treated to its own set of blue and black graphics to really make it stand out. The urethane bumper with chin spoiler, body-colored grilles, and ducktail spoiler out back all add to the car's aggressive look, and even the original taillights are still in very solid shape. Clean, honest, and traditional in all the right ways.

In a red car, the black interior looks downright amazing and is exactly the right choice as an upgrade over the original Camel vinyl. High-back buckets should look familiar, although the updated upholstery is a fantastic upgrade, with sculpted seating surfaces front and back that look great and are all-day comfortable. Matching door panels and a back seat that looks almost completely unused add to the fresh look inside, and the factory center console that houses the shifter for the automatic transmission is a must-have for any fans of vintage performance. The sporty Z/28 steering wheel and wrap-around dashboard give the Z a performance feel and the instruments have been upgraded to new Auto Meter dials that look like vintage gauges from the performance era. A Pioneer AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo tucks neatly into the original radio's slot and this car carries options like power windows, cruise control, a tilt steering column so it's easy to get comfortable. Plush black carpets line the floors, there's a taut headliner above, and the factory A/C system is blowing nice and cold thanks to a conversion to R134a refrigerant. Pop the trunk and you'll find no surprises, but rather super-clean panels that prove just how solid this Z really is.

Featuring a strong running 350 V8, this Camaro is no mere piece of memorabilia best left at rest in a garage - it's fully up to the demands of frequent driving. Surrounded by fresh hoses and carrying a factory snorkeled air cleaner on top, it's fed cold air supplied by the induction scoop sitting above and starts up promptly and pulls with conviction while exhaling out of its stock headers. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, power front disc brakes, and smooth power steering combine to provide the road manners well-suited for modern driving conditions and the solid-looking undercarriage below is downright impressive. This slick muscle car sits on a set of flashy 15" gold and aluminum wheels with spinners that look great wrapped in thick blackwalls that perfectly fill the fenders and give it the perfect stance.

This is a lot of car for the price, and doesn't have a dated look like so many of its siblings. It also runs great and looks awesome to boot. Hard to go wrong here. Call today!
