This Survivor Z28 features the numbers matching original 350 engine, close ratio 4-speed transmission, and F41 high performance suspension. Throughout the entire F-Body market right now, this is one of the most rarely optioned and desirable Camaros available and is also fully documented with original window sticker, factory build sheet, owners manual, and lots of original booklets and brochures. One item that makes this Z28 extremely rare is the fact that it was ordered from the factory with a stereo CB radio with power antenna and amazingly the dash still remains in as delivered condition, meaning the dash has not be altered in any way and the factory correct radio is still in its stock position with the CB receiver. One can only imagine how rare this original stereo CB radio option is and to see it still in place is amazing, facts are there were only 491 Camaros built in 1980 with this rare option out of over 152,000 produced. This Z28 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. This Z28 looks great, runs awesome, and is fun to drive, especially rowing through the gears on a beautiful day. 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 Black over Carmine Red Deluxe vinyl interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the original window sticker and build sheet pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos, ten minute video, numbers, and information to get a true sense of clean, correct, and original 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

 

 

The 1980 Z28 came with the extremely popular Z28 hood which included a rear-pointing raised scoop (air induction) with a solenoid operated flap which opened at full throttle, allowing the engine to breathe cooler air.. The 1980 Z28 also offers unique style upper and lower front grill and smaller revised graphics on its lower-door decals. The side scoops were also changed from a louvered design to a flatter one with a single opening.

 

numbers

 
 

Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the correct stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but all of the dates are also chronologically correct.  This means that all of the parts were made and assembled in the correct order.  For example, all of the dates for the individual engine components and the engine casting date should obviously precede the assembly date of the engine because the parts had to be produced before they could be assembled.  All of the parts I checked follow this rule and are dated correctly. 

 

item number description
VIN 1P87LAN542607 The first digit, "1," indicated the Chevrolet division of GM.  The "Q" is the model level, correct for Z28.  The "87" is the body style, 2-door sport coupe.  The fifth digit is the engine, L, correct for an 350ci car.  The sixth digit, "A," indicates the model year, 1980.  The "N" is the plant where the car was produced, Norwood, OH.  The last five digits are a sequence number for each plant so this is the 42,607th Camaro made in Norwood for 1980.
Body Build Date 01E "01" is the first month of the year and "E" is the fifth week of the month meaning this Camaro's body build date is the fifth week of January, 1980.
Engine Code T0225 "T" means the engine was built in the Tonawanda, NY plant.  The "02" is the second month of year and the "25" is the twenty-fifth day of the month meaning the engine was assembled on February 25, 1980.  This number was very hard to make out on the pad, but is what we think it reads 
Suffix Code CEU This is the suffix code for a 1980 Camaro with the 350ci engine and a manual transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine VIN Stamping 542607 The last 6 digits of the car's VIN, 542607, are stamped on the engine pad meaning this engine is original to this car.  
Engine Block Casting Number 14010209 The engine block has the 14010209 casting number.
Engine Block Casting Date A 22 80 "A" is January, "22" is the twenty-second day of the month, and "80" is 1980 so the engine block was cast on January 22, 1980.  Which is correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
Intake Manifold Casting Number 14014440 The intake manifold is correct with a 14014440 casting number.
Intake Manifold Casting Date A 22 0 "A" is January, "22" is the twenty-second day of the month, and "0" is 1980 so the intake was cast on January 22, 1980.  Which is correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
Distributor 1103482 The distributor is has 1103353 stamped on the housing.
Distributor Date Code 0B6 The "0" is the last digit of the calendar year, the "B" denotes February, and "6" is the sixth day of the month meaning the distributor was made on February 6, 1980.
Carburetor Main Body

17080207

The original carburetor has the correct stamping for a 1980 350ci Camaro with no a/c and manual transmission.  The fourth digit, "8," means the carb was built for 1980's production run.  The fifth digit,  "0," means it was built in 1980 model year.  The six digit, "2," indicates that it is a 4BBL carb.  The seventh digit,  "0," means is was built for the Chevrolet division of GM. The eighth digit, "7" means it was built for a car with a manual transmission such as this Camaro.
Carburetor Date Code 0440 The first three digits, "044" indicate the 44th day of the year.  The last digit, "0" is the year it was produced, 1980.  So the carb  was stamped on February 13, 1980.
Transmission Casting Date 1.25.80 The transmission has 1.25.80 cast into the main case, which indicates January 28, 1980.
Alternator Stamp 1103162 The alternator has 1103162 cast into the housing, which is correct for a 1980 Camaro.
Alternator Date 9J28 The "9" is the last digit of the calendar year, the "J" denotes September, and "28" is the twenty-eighth day of the month meaning the alternator was made on September 28, 1979.  This is correct as it predates the build dates of the engine.

 

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Black exterior is in beautiful condition. One professional repaint with new decals 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, great shine, and smooth finish. Often times many Z28 Camaro's will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not, both bumpers are in great condition with no spider webbing or flaking paint. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are of course a few very small 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 Goodyear Eagle GT tires are sized 215/65/15 with approximately 80% tread left. The rally wheels and center caps are in excellent shape and shine nicely with a beautiful finish and no curb rash. The trunk is very solid and nicely detailed with a correct trunk mat, original spare tire with jack and accessories.

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

 

Interior

The original Carmine Red deluxe vinyl interior of this Z28 looks splendid. The seat covers look great with no excessive wear. There is one seam split that is hardly noticeable as one can see in the photos and one tiny hole that is visible. Please note that these appear to be the original seat covers not some cheap aftermarket replacements. The carpet appears to be original as well and is in good condition with no major stains. The original dash is in great condition with one very small blemish on the upper middle by the windshield, there is small seam split that is barely visible. The very rare CB radio still remains in its factory position and works to this day and is amazingly unmolested after all these years preserving the rarity of this fine Z28. All of the interior lights and gauges work as they should, with the obvious exception of the clock and currently the power antenna is not functional but the radio still tunes in to stations. The original door panels look great with no excessive wear, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner appears to be original issue and is in excellent shape with no stains or sagging. The package tray appears to be original as well and is in great condition with no fading or warping. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigerattes whatsoever. GM interiors from this era are not know to wear well and the excellent condition of this original interior is a testament to the meticulous care 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. Much care has gone into keeping this car in excellent original condition and factory correct and this Z28 is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds, especially with the F41 special suspension. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. 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 clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. Even the original smog pump and air tubes from the exhaust manifolds remain on the engine unmolested. The horn works as do the power windows and both power door locks. All the interior and exterior lights, all gauges(except clock), wipers, and blower for the heater work as they should. Even the cigarette lighter is still working on this amazing Camaro. The speedometer, tachometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should. This Z28 has true dual exhaust with no catalytic converter and has a nice healthy exhaust note at idle and cruising speeds. This Z28 was recently tuned up with new spark plug wires, fine tuning carb. adjustments, and timing dialed in. 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.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1980 Z28 is in very nice well preserved original condition. Numbers matching is extremely important in Chevrolet pricing, especially with rare options like the 4-Speed transmission and CB radio option. The originality, rarity, original documentation, and the great extent to which the numbers match make this car especially important and hard to duplicate. 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. While the mileage shows 51,414 is completely believable as original based on the condition of the car, due to titling procedure the title shows the mileage as nonactual. Some states do not record mileage on vehicles older than a certain age where they are "exempt." This Camaro came from one of those states that exempts mileage on older cars so when it was titled in Ohio the mileage could not be recorded as "Actual" even though based on items like the original interior, we believe the mileage is probably original. 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.
