Car description

If you were one of the millions of guys who had Farrah Fawcett in that red swimsuit on your bedroom wall, your car awaits. This amazingly well-preserved 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is proof that the muscle car didn't die, it just went on an extended vacation in the mid-70s. With just 56,512 original miles, a load of options, and that beautiful blue color combination, you won't be sneaking around in this one, but then again, why would you want to? The color is called Dark Blue, and there's no question about that. It was also the single most popular color for Z28s in 1980, accounting for only about 4% of production, and it has a look that captures the era perfectly. The car is beautifully preserved, with amazing presentation of the original finish; only the rear window slats aren't original. There might be a few signs of use and age, of course, but there's no denying that this is one heck of a survivor. The aggressive chin spoiler shows minimal marks from run-ins with parking curbs, the lower flanks haven't been blasted by gravel, and the stripe package remains bright and vivid against the blue paint. Judging by the urethane spoilers, the condition of the grille, and the clarity of the taillights, I'd wager that this car has spent a good amount of its life protected and indoors, used only as a fair-weather toy, and the mileage bears that out. The blue cloth and vinyl buckets will be familiar to any F-body fan, and they are as comfortable as they look. Like the bodywork, the interior is remarkably well preserved, with no splits or tears in the seat covers, and very little wear, even on the driver's side bolster, which always takes the most abuse. Deep pile carpeting was all the rage in 1980, and it remains in good condition with no fading or matting from winter boots soaking it, and the door panels show practically zero signs of aging. The headliner is in excellent shape, although there's not a lot of it with the factory T-tops (whose weather seals are in excellent shape). This Z also includes upgrades like cold A/C, power windows, a tilt steering column, a center console, and an optional tachometer, along with an unusual AM/FM/8-track stereo that was a must-have in the late-70s, along with a Hurst Dual Gate shifter that's the only notable deviation from stock inside. The ultra-clean trunk wears its original mat and carries a space-saver spare that's never been used, an item that's probably worth a good bit of scratch all by itself. The engine is the original 350 cubic inch V8, which, in Z/28 guise, makes 175 horsepower. Nestled into a highly original engine bay, this one is thankfully free of the questionable modifications that so often befell cars like this. Instead it's very stock, very original, and very nicely preserved, with all the details in place to make it a very qualified entrant into preservation judging. The engine bay shows signs of use but nothing that a few hours of cleaning couldn't erase, and aside from the R134a refrigerant in the A/C system, it's just as the original engineers wanted it. The 2-1-2 exhaust system sounds great and on the road it's tight, smooth, and solid-feeling, just as you'd expect from a low-mileage survivor. Factory alloy wheels show virtually zero curb rash and wear 235/60/15 BFGoodrich radials. Documented with receipts, the original bill of sale, and other papers, this is the second-generation Z/28 to own if you're a true Camaro fan. Call today!
