1978 Chevrolet Camaro

This is a 1978 Z-28 Camaro that I have been restoring for several years and am being forced to sell due to life's circumstances. I got this car from West Texas, t had been in that very dry climate it's entire life and the body shows it. When I bought it, t was basically just a shell, o interior or engine or transmission. Other than that I know nothing about the history of this car.
I can get you more and better pictures. Just contact me.
Here is a list of everything Ihave done on the car and everything I have for it:
- I put the body on a rotisserie and sandblasted and cleaned the entire undercarriage and firewall.- I brushed on a nice coat of gloss black POR-15 on the undercarriage and firewall.- I removed the paint on the entire chassis, oors, enders, tc. down to bare metal.- Repaired some small dents.- Sealed with a high quality Sherwin-Williams paint.- Continued the body work by using some body filler/putty and two or three coats of Sherwin-Williams high build primer on a few small dings and dents, etting the roof, uarters, oors, enders, runk lid perfect.- I also applied POR-15 on the entire inside of the body and inside the trunk.- I cleaned the subframe and lots of brackets and all the suspension and the rear differential and leaf springs and undercarriage parts.- I applied new seam sealer to all the body seams and anywhere underneath that needed sealing up. There was a spot in the trunk where water had sat, cut that metal out and welded a patch from a donor car,grinned the welds flat and sealed it.- I applied POR-15 to all the inner bumpers and brackets.
PARTS- Brand new nose cone.- 3 inch steel cowl induction hood.- Perfect, ust free,primered, -28 fenders.- Lower Z-28 flares/body spoilers for front and rear, long with brackets.- Rear window with built in electric defrost- Perfect inner fenders with POR-15 applied.- Original gas tank.- Front and rear seats.- All inner door parts for manual and power windows.- Perfect rear bumper.- Several drive shafts.- Original stainless steel tail pipes for dual exhaust in great condition.- Wheelie bars- Subframe connectors- brand new- Original trunk jack.- Original spare tire.- Dual Exhaust Crossmember.- Brand new tie rod ends and all steeringsuspension parts.- Original 3.42 posi unit.- Several boxes full of great interior parts, ick panels, ail panels, ear armrest panels, nd so much more all in great shape. They need cleaning and paint/dye. Dash parts, ope steering wheel. The main pieces I can think that are missing are thedash pad, he headliner, arpet, oor panels, nd console.- Brand new high performance radiator.- There is a full barrel of steeringcolumns to rebuild one really nice one from.- I have the door glass.- I have a very nice set of the 5 spoke Z-28 wheels that have been powder coated gloss black.- I believe my dad has a set of new, erformance tires to go with these wheels, ut I will have to check on that.- I have a 350 engine that has been machined, illed, nd ready to build. It has been bored out to .010 if I remember correctly. It comes with a set of machined heads. I can't remember the number on the heads but they are a very good set. I will get thatinfo and add it to this ad. I have a machined and balanced crank cut to .010. I have several original aluminum low profile intake manifolds as well as a few after market ones that you can chose from.- It has rebuilt door hinges.- I have purchased Sherwin-Williams base coat/clear coat gloss black paint for the car, utit as been sitting in storage so I can't guarantee that it's still good, ut should be ok with some mixing.- I have a full set of factory wiring for the car- engine, eadlight, nder dash, nterior, ear tail light and power window/lock.
As you can see, have done a huge amount of work and this car is in immaculate condition. I have gone through lots of parts cars to get some of these parts. It is really ready to have someone with some cash and time and space to finish out right.
The car is in the exact condition and state of disassembly as you see it in the pictures. I am sure I forgot lots of things, o please contact me with any questions. The car is in Tulsa, klahoma. I would prefer you pick the car up, owever, could deliver it for a fee within a few hours of here. Please don't lowball me because although I "have" to sell, don't HAVE to sell and I obviously know what it is worth and could be and will be worth over time. I will get the VIN and cowl taginfo. I don't believe this is an original Z-28, ust a clone.
