Throughout the entire F-Body market right now, this is one of the nicest and most desirable Camaros available. This stunning Z28 features a nice professional repaint with new correct decals, and is very solid and clean as one can see in the many photos of the underside and other specific photos of the areas most prone to rust. It looks great, runs awesome, and is fun to drive, especially rowing through the gears on a beautiful day with the T-tops removed. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Z28 that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. This Z28 is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Light Red over Tan Custom Vinyl interior. This is the factory original color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos, comprehensive video, and information below to get a true sense of clean and nice this Camaro really is.

As a side note, this Camaro is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Camaro, just give us a call.

 

model description

 

 

With After 4 years of the extruded aluminum bumpers, an all new body color urethane front & rear fascia was finally added to the car. Intended to debut in 1976, production delays held up the restyle until this year. Now hidden behind the sleek new nose was the impact absorbing crash structure able to withstand greater than 5MPH impacts. The rear tail lights were redesigned as well, now incorporating 3-color lenses on either side of the fuel door in the center. The license plate was relocated to a molded in section of the rear bumper. The Camaro wasn't just continuing to blow the competition away on the street, but it beat the rival Mustang in the showroom again, outselling the Ford 247,437 to 179,039. There was no competition.

Exterior

The Light Red exterior is in beautiful condition. One professional repaint with new decals over original sheet metal was performed on this Z28 and it looks and shows very well. The decals are correct GM replacements and really look splendid on the car. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine. Often times many Z28 Camaro's will have particularly chipped up front ends, as one can see in the photos this car does not and the low front end is in excellent shape. Both urethane bumpers are original and in great condition with no spider webbing or flaking paint. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There may be a few blemishes around the car that were too faint to show up in the photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five feet away. The original rally wheels were re-painted as well and are in excellent shape; they shine nicely and have no curb rash. The trunk is clean. As one see in the many photos of the underside this Camaro is very solid. We have included specific photos of the lower quarters, rockers, spring perches, body mounts, and other areas of the car most prone to rust.

The Camaro looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

The original Tan custom vinyl interior of this Z28 looks splendid. The seats look just as good in person as they do in the photos. Please note that these appear to be the original seats not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements. The carpet looks nice and is in good condition with no stains, tears, or holes. The original dash is in great condition with no dash cracks or fading. The am/fm radio still works and most importantly, the dash remains uncut and unmolested after all these years preserving the originality of this fine Z28. All gauges work as they should, with the obvious exception of the clock. The original door panels look fantastic with no excessive wear, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The Headliner is in excellent shape with no stains or sagging. The package tray appears to be original and is in great condition with no fading or warping. This car has no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. These Z28 interiors are not know to wear well and the excellent condition of this original interior is a testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Z28 is in great mechanical condition and all of the accessories work. The new GM 350 crate engine runs very well. This Z28 is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, braking to stoplight, shifting through all the gears, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts well, there are no strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs excellent. The car shifts well and the clutch feels good. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. Also, the engine is very clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. There is no smoke when driving the car. The wipers work as do the all gauges(except clock) and blower for the heater on all speeds. The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and volt gauges all work as they should. This Z28 has true dual exhaust with upgraded headers, no catalytic converter, and has a nice healthy exhaust note at idle and cruising speeds. There is occasionally a clicking noise from shifter between 3rd and 4th. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the 4-speed transmission on a beautiful day with the T-tops removed. There is no door lock key, though one could be easily be made at a lock smith and we would be happy to have that done for an addional $200.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1978 Z28 is in excellent well preserved condition. The 4-Speed transmission and newer GM crate engine make this Camaro an especially nice driver and even more desirable. It is a great value and we have it priced to sell. This car turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. The value of these second generation "F-Body" cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector or the average enthusiast. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson and Mecum stars of the future. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
