vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this 1981 Camaro in superb stock condition and priced to sell. This Camaro is in very nice shape featuring a mostly original interior that is in beautiful shape, the original numbers matching V8 engine, Cold working AC, and a beautiful exterior color of Light Blue code (21) with a recent professional repaint with white rally stripes that really make this sport coupe pop. It looks great, runs awesome, and is a fantastic driver that feels great on the road. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Camaro 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 Camaro is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of Light Blue over Dark Blue standard vinyl interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and information below to get a true sense of nice and clean this Camaro really is.

Please note that this Camaro is "numbers matching" meaning the engine is original to the car. The last six digits of the VIN, 122178, are stamped on the engine block indicating that this is the engine that was installed in the car brand new at the factory. Also stamped on the engine block is "K0218DFH." The "K" indicates that this engine was assembled at the McKinnon Industries engine plant. The "0218" is a date code indicated that the engine was assembled on February 18, 1981. This would be correct as it precedes the car's body build date of the first week of March 1981, represented by the code "03A" on the trim tag. The "DFH" is the engine suffix code meaning that this engine was intended for a Camaro with the L39 engine option and an automatic transmission, which is correct for this car.

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.

Exterior

The Light Blue exterior is in very nice driver condition. This Camaro was recently treated to a professional repaint in its factory ordered color with the addition of the very popular white rally stripes. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a fine gloss, deep shine, and smooth glass like finish; it is an absolutely beautiful exterior color that looks even better in the sun. Often many Camaro's will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not, both bumpers are in great shape with no spider webbing or flaking paint. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There may be some small blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five feet away. There are some light scratches on the right window. The white letter tires are virtually brand new and sized 215/70/14. The factory rally wheels were recently painted as well. They look like new with no curb rash and the center caps and wheel rings are in great shape. The trunk is solid and clean and nicely detailed with a correct trunk mat, original space saver spare tire and lug wrench. All weather stripping including door seals, trunk seal, window sweeps, and window seals look to be in great condition. This car was treated to a Ziebart Rust Protection system when new (the plugs are visible in the photos).  We have included many photos of the underside and specific photos of the areas on the car most prone to rust to show how solid this car is.

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

Window Date Codes

Windshield: VZ - "V" denotes December and "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the windshield was made in December of 1980.

Driver: VZ - "Z" denotes December and "Z" denotes 1980 meaning the driver's side window was made in December of 1980.

Passenger: XX - The first
"X" denotes February and second "X" denotes 1981 meaning the passenger side window was made in February of 1981.

Rear: XX - The first "X" denotes February and the second "X" denotes 1981 meaning the rear window was made in February of 1976.

Please note that ALL the glass on this car is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of the first week of March 1981 (03A). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

 

Interior

The Dark Blue standard vinyl interior of this Camaro looks splendid. The original vinyl seats are in great condition with no excessive wear or stains. There is one spot on the drivers seat half way up on the bolster and a specific photo of the area below. Please keep in mind that these are the factory original seats and covers, not some cheap aftermarket replacements. The carpet is in very good condition with no major stains, rips or holes. The original dash is in good condition, but does have a few cracks on the top of the dash pad. The stereo has been upgraded to a Alpine head unit featuring a single CD player with USB and MP3 hook ups. The original door panels look great with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The package tray is in good shape with no major warping or fading. New rocker sill plates were also added. All of the lights and gauges work very well and the AC system blows cold air. The radio and wipers work as well, but the horn, rear defrost, and interior lights are currently not working. There is no aroma of cigarette smoke in the car whatsoever. GM interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the great condition of this original interior is a true 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 Camaro is in great mechanical condition and the numbers matching drive line is mostly unmolested. The mechanics and the way this car runs and drives are some of its strongest points. This Camaro is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. 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 and even the factory smog pump is still in place. This Camaro has good power and handles very well. Recently, a true dual exhaust was added to this Camaro, which really gives it a nice healthy exhaust tone at idle and cruising speeds. The AC system blows cold air and the compressor kicks on correctly as one can see in the video. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially on a beautiful day. We personally drove this car back to our shop and it drove beautifully. It drove straight and the steering was tight, it did not rattle or run hot. It was a true pleasure to drive. You will see in the video below a short segment of the car on the highway. Please notice that the car is smooth, quiet, and drives just like a great Camaro should.

This Camaro runs and drives as well as it looks.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1981 Camaro is in very nice condition. It is a great value, a beautiful color combination, and we have it priced to sell. This car turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes, especially with the color combination. Anyone is sure to be the talk of the cruse in when this car pulls up. While we completely believe that this car has original mileage of 95,850 especially due to items like the original interior in excellent condition, the title is marked as "Nonactual," most likely due to a typo on a previous title years ago. The value of these Camaros 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.
