1983 Chevrolet Camaro1983 Camaro Type Z28 is up for bid.
I believe cars are elegant machines that produce experiences and emotions. Some are as functional as getting to-and-from, and others are feelings that only a red 1980’s car with T Tops produce. These machines need proper maintenance to ensure they optimally perform long enough to be artifacts of the past. The story of this 1983 Camaro Z28 is exactly that—a car that been has meticulously cared for throughout its time. It was stored indoors for all but one summer, and was mostly driven on the county roads of Iowa until its former years driven on weekend cruises to car shows with my neighbor.
This LU5 Crossfire 305 V8 has just over 65,000 miles with an average 2,000 miles/year driven over the past 5 years—a rate that stretches its legs, keeps good gas flowing through it, and provides excuses to detail it for the weekend drives.
Exterior: The exterior of this Camaro has held up very well considering its age, and I attribute it to being stored indoors. The body does have some dings in the door panel (a task of mine that always seemed to be, “next on the list.”), and is the factory Paint Code 75 Red. It still shines up beautifully. The only rust issues I can find on the whole car is on the back hatch closure where the weatherstrip seals rest on the body created two, three-inch sections of rust.
The heater works well, and the air conditioner works well enough. I add refrigerant once per year, and is done as easy as unscrewing a cap, attaching the refrigerant and its device, and filling to the proper pressure.
Interior: The overall condition of theinterioris show quality, because there are no stains, no tears, and no scuffs that I can see. The original floor mats are cracked, but those can be replaced easily. Door and T Top weatherstrip needs to be replaced if you plan on taking it into a high pressure car wash. I hand wash this Camaro, and did not bother to replace it.
Chassis: The chassis and suspension are solid. It starts, stops and drives straight. Brake lines were flushed and the rubber sections have been replaced; and brake drums and rotors were resurfaced and cleaned in the last three years.
Powertrain: The car starts and runs well. Several years ago the Camaro was running sluggish, so the fuel system was cleaned or replaced from the gas tank to the CrossFire ignition system. A new battery, new ignition wires, and new plugs ensured a good electrical system to spark the fire under the hood. It worked. The performance was back to normal.
Exhaust is original. It has no damage, nor rust that I can see. It sounds great. A low toned growl shakes the rear view mirror.
Radiator system was flushed and water pump replaced within the last three years.
It has new tires. White walls match the trend of the Third Generation Camaro Era.
Summary: This car is for those who want to relive the 80’s Muscle Car era in one that has the confidence of quality and longevity. The reason I am selling is because I have owned this car for 20 of its 33 years, and I want a different toy. Title is clear and in my name.
