1971 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28
1971 CAMARO Z-28
I have had the car since approximately April 2007. The engine and transmission are long gone. I bought it because the entire undercarriage had been painted/rebuilt and the body was very solid and complete.
The car is Nassau Blue with a black interior.
I stripped the main body to bare metal. After deciding to sell the car I gave it a very thin brush applied coat of Eastwood Encapsulator. My thought was to provide some weather protection during transport. It should be very easy to sand down to the base metal.
I had the car disassembled but have “tacked” it together for shipping and to give a better idea of the completeness of the vehicle. It will need to be taken apart and fully assembled.
The body is EXTREMELY solid. The only rust I have found is area about half the size of your thumb on the edge of the driver’s side rear wheel opening. The spot is at the lower portion of the opening where the quarter panel welds to the outer wheel housing. It is very repairable. The only other rust is VERY light and VERY localized surface rust from setting. It has always had inside storage.
The area around the shifter has been crudely cut away. It is a separate panel that is spot welded to the main floor. It could also be repaired.
FRONT SHEET METAL
With the exception for the hood and inner fenders the sheet metal is new and have GM stickers. The original hood has a shallow dent that is repairable. The car comes with a second red hood that is very nice except for a ding above the air cleaner mounting stud.
The inner fenders have also been painted gloss black but the finished paint has separated from the primer at the flat area near the radiator support. The paint at rounded portions over the tires is firmly adhered but do have some scratching from being handled over the years.
The radiator support and heater box cover have been powder coated gloss black.
The front bumper is straight and has very decent chrome. and should polish up nicely for a driver. The rear bumper is also straight with good chome that will be OK for a driver.
The entire undercarriage has been redone by the previous owner. All bushings, fuel lines, brake lines etc. have been replaced. The front subframe and firewall have been refinished in gloss black. The underside of the car, suspension components, rear axle etc. have been painted.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The car does not come with a radiator, engine, drive shaft or transmission.
Car has a clear title in the previous owners name.
The glass is all there and in good condition.
NOTE: The windshield and rear window are only set in place they have not been cemented in place and will have to be removed for shipment or stabilized.
The front seats require new upholstery and padding and are missing the hard plastic back panel. The rear seats are very good.
The door panels are very good but have had speaker holes cut into the hard plastic center section. It has been done neatly.
The rear interior panels and sail panels are very serviceable but do have scratching.
The headliner is in good condition and would not have to be replaced.
The rear package shelf had been replaced before I got the car and is very good condition.
The carpeting is not included.
I have not been able to located where I stored the upper portion of the door panels. Assume they are not included. If I find them before the end of the auction I will update the listing.
The trunk lid is original and in very nice condition.
The spoiler is also very nice with no breaks or cracks. There may be minor scuffs from handling but is very nice.
INSIDE OF TRUNK
The inside of the trunk has been repainted but the new paint did not bond well and easily flakes off and will need to be redone.
The trunk floor is very solid and does not require repair.
The dash plastic is in very good condition. The radio is missing but the plastic has not been broken, hacked or otherwise removed.
The padded dash is not cracked and is in very good condition. Note: There is residue from tape that was holding paper in place to protect the dash. It is very obvious in the photos but will come of with cleaner.
The steering wheel appears to be original and is in very good condition.
The floors are extremely solid and straight. Any rust is surface only and not very heavy.
TIRES AND WHEELS
The tires and wheels on the car are “rollers” only.
The car comes with the original Z-28 wheels but do not include the trim rings or center cap.
Both doors are very solid, rust free and have only very minor dings.
The majority of the misc. trim is included and is in very good condition.
The windshield trim is nice. A new piece at the top of the windshield is also included. The rear window trim is missing. The grill appears to be new.
The rear side marker lights are missing.
Both front directional light housings are included. One lens is included but the other is broken.
The headlight rims are included and are nice driver quality.
The right tail light is included and is nice driver quality. I have the left tail light but at the time of the listing could not find where it was. Assume it is missing. If I locate it before the end of the auction I will update the listing.
The front side marker lights are in very good condition.
