1979 Chevrolet Camaro
Here is a beautiful one owner 1979 Camaro z28. This vehicle came from an estate from upstate New York. Usually these classic cars would be completely rusted out but this is a different case. When the original owner purchased this car he had it undercoated by ziebart which prevented any rust on the vehicle. He also stored the vehicle in his garage and never drove it in the winter. We purchased the vehicle in 2012 and started to refinish it. It was fully stripped down to the metal and repainted with a blue metallic paint which was the color of the original paint, s well as a new z28 stripe kit. We then had the original 350 motor rebuilt and bored out to a 355 it now puts out around 400hp. here is a list of the parts in the motor & labor involved in the rebuild..

we were able to save the numbers on the engine block as well. so all numbers match on the car.
We also had the original turbo 350 transmission rebuilt with a stall converter for the increase in horsepower.
Both the engine and the tranny were rebuilt at the same time and the have around 2,000 miles on them.
All new chrome nitto 17' rims with new tires. We also have all 4 originals rims and tires as well.
3' headers with straight purple hornet pipes off the headers. we also have a complete flow master exhaust if you didn't want the straight pipes.
The interior was also re-done because of the regular wear and tear throughout the years.
An after market sound system was installed so you can listen to the music of your choice.(kenwood radio with 4 JL speakers)
This car is very fun to drive and gets a lot of complements where ever it goes.
