With its numbers-matching V8, low mileage, and great features, this 1978 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 knows how to be a striking classic. And the superb documentation backs it all up, right down to the color combo.
This is a great year to own a Camaro. The second-generation car got its best styling update ever with nicely integrated bumpers, a sleek rear panel, and a mean blacked-out front for Z/28s. That's why someone took the time to keep this nicely preserved and documented. It includes all the best Z/28 elements, including the long hood scoop, wraparound chin spoiler, slotted fender vents, and full-width spoiler. It all looks quite sporty thanks to good sheetmetal and good care to what's believed to be mostly original Carmine Red paint. And as a true Z-car of this era, you even get a full stripe package that highlights all the best Z/28 elements all around the car. In fact, this one is correct, right down to the optional 15-inch aluminum wheels (and we even have the window sticker to prove it!) You might notice these classic turbine-style alloys have some extra flair, and that's from getting them chromed. It adds distinction without taking away from a very correct classic.
This car has averaged less than 1,400 miles annually, and so low mileage means little seat time. That's why the red bucket seats look so nice. In fact, with the full red presentation on the inside coordinating so well with the exterior, this is one of those classic coupes that will have people talking. But more than just impressing onlookers, you're going to love this for how comfortable it is to drive. The corded sport steering wheel is special to these Camaros; the wraparound full gauge dashboard gives this Z a performance feel; and you'll love resting your right arm between the center console and perfect-sized shifter. Plus, you have all the right options like power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, rear defrost, cruise control, and factory air conditioning. Plus, there's a retro-style AM/FM radio with aux input for your iPod, so you get to have a modern stereo that still fits with your very vintage atmosphere.
Under the hood is Chevy's stout 350 cubic-inch V8, and on a car that has been this authentic so far, you'll be happy to know this is the original motor, too. Survivor people will love the authentic level of detail, right down to the factory decals. There has been good maintenance in this car, and there's even a spreadsheet documenting recent investments. So it should be no surprise that this one fires up nicely and runs smoothly. The V8 inhales deeply through a Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and makes a nice sound out of the H-pipe dual exhaust. These motors were known for their torque, which makes them lively from the stoplights. Plus, this Z-car has a ton of great driving features, including a Positraction rear end and sway bars front & rear. There's also power steering, front disc brakes, and the original three-speed automatic transmission.
The sale comes complete with a binder full of the right paperwork. This includes the original window sticker, factory buildsheet, bill of sale, warranty card, owner's manual, and service manuals. There are even extras like the original radio and a car cover. It all goes to show that this is that highly authentic Camaro that's been treated correctly to keep it a terrific vintage cruiser. That makes it a total package classic that's ready to run right now. Call today!!!
