1981 Chevrolet Camaro Z28


Cincy Classic Cars is very proud to offer this stunning Factory 1981 Camaro Z28 which is in fantastic restored condition and priced to sell. This Z28 was treated to a frame on restoration featuring a professional paint job, a fully rebuilt engine which is original to the car, a fully restored Red interior, and a copy of the factory build sheet. This Z28 is very solid with excellent body lines and gaps. Frame and under carriage is also very solid with several upgrades and is nicely detailed. This Z28 comes with factory Air Conditioning and currently blows cold. This Z28 is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Red exterior paint(code 75) over Red/Black interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified on the trim tag and build sheet seen in photos. Its a stunningly beautiful color scheme which I have never seen in person. Car was purchased out of Florida and the two previous owners lived in Florida.

The Red exterior is in superb restored condition. This Z28 was treated to a professional repaint in recent years and still has a fresh very nice look. The paint quality is great with an excellent gloss and is smooth to the touch. The body is very solid and the gaps and lines are excellent. Both bumpers are in excellent shape with no flaking or faded paint and no spider webbing. The decals are in good shape and really accent the car and Z28 package. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but noting was intentionally excluded from the photos. The BF Goodrich tires have full tread left and are correctly sized 225/70/15 and the Z28 wheels are OEM originals which have been nicely restored. All weather stripping and window sweeps are in excellent new condition. The door seals, trunk seal, window sweeps, and window seals are all newer. Trunk is very solid and clean with an original space saver spare tire and original trunk mat. All glass is "LOF" original outside of the windshield.

The Red cloth interior of this Z28 is in terrific restored condition. The seat covers have been recently replaced and are like new with no major wear. The carpet was replaced and in like new condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The dash is in excellent overall condition and the dash bezel is in great condition as well. The two prong AM/FM 8 track player stereo is original to the car and still works and thankfully the dash was not cut for a modern stereo. New 6x9 speakers were added and sound great. The door panels are new and in excellent condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner has been replaced and is like new condition and both sun visors were recovered too. The package tray was recently replaced and is in great condition and newer 6x9 speakers were added. All interior lights and gauges work as they should outside of the clock and the tach reads high.The stereo, wipers, horn, and blower motor all work. The tilt wheel works as it should. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever.


This Z28 is in excellent mechanical condition and still retains its original 350 engine which has been rebuilt to approximately 300 HP and runs and drives extremely well and strong. A new Edelbrock EPS intake was added as well as a new Quick Fuel 750 double pumper carb., and also a new HEI distributor and new wires and plugs. The factory computer system has been bypassed and the performance has been drastically upgraded. The car is much more reliable now and much quicker and pulls very strong and is pretty fast. We have driven this Z28 numerous times on the streets and highways and it always performs very well, does not run hot, rides tight, and is a true joy to drive. In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs very well. This Z28 is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. The brakes do not pull and stop as they should and were serviced and upgraded with new calipers and pads and new brake hoses. A new gas tank was installed and all new full lines were added and new fuel pump and carb. lines. True dual Flowmaster exhaust was recently added which gives this Z28 an excellent rumble at idle and cruising speeds. Hedman headers were also installed. Several suspension items have been upgraded including new rear leaf springs, shocks, end links, ball joints, body bushings, body mounts, etc. A new fan was added to the engine. New alternator and power steering system were also added. New steering linkage and steering box were installed recently. See UPC tag in photos on steering box. Also, the engine is exceptionally clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. This is a factory AC car and all factory parts are present and currently the system works and is blowing cold air. This Z28 has been loved and meticulously cared for by its previous owners and nearly all wear items have been replaced. The outstanding way this Z28 looks and drives is a true testament to prior owners care and love for this special car. The underside is very solid and nicely detailed.
