1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 SportVery clean, unmodified, adult-owned car with just 61,207 original miles. Great colors, beautiful interior, cold A/C, everything works. Never raced or abused, no winters, just a super straight Z28 ready to have fun!
This 1984 Z28 is so nice that it might just be even better than you rememberâ€”it certainly surprised me with its quality. Itâ€™s the rare specimen that hasnâ€™t been abused, modified, or even really used as a daily driver, and today shows just 61,207 original miles. The very handsome Medium Dark Royal Blue paint looks fantastic and everything but the hood and deck lid is original GM enamel. Of course you remember how GMâ€™s early experiments with water-borne paints turned out, especially blue paints from the â€˜80s, so after some flaking it was refinished two years ago. The match is just about perfect and the gloss level blends so neatly that if I hadnâ€™t told you about it, youâ€™d never spot the repaint. The ground effects, chin spoiler, and other low-hanging parts are in shockingly good condition, and if thereâ€™s one car from the 80s that has aged particularly well, itâ€™s the third-gen Camaro. This thing looks awesome sitting in the sun!
Also be sure to check out this carâ€™s drop-dead gorgeous blue cloth interior. Itâ€™s beautifully preserved, showing no splits or tears, and even the driverâ€™s seat is quite firm and comfortable. Likewise the blue carpets are not faded (often a problem in T-top cars) and the striped theme continues on the door panels. This is a low-slung car, so you do hunker down in there, but once youâ€™re behind the wheel, youâ€™re greeted by a group of big, easy-to-read gauges that cover all the important engine functions. This car is loaded up with options, too: cold A/C, tilt steering column, power driverâ€™s seat, cruise control, rear defroster, and a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo thatâ€™s original-issue. Itâ€™s remarkably well preserved inside and you know the mileage is authentic and this car has led an easy life because there are almost no squeaks or rattles in this T-top F-body, a real surprise! The back seat looks virtually unused and thereâ€™s decent storage in the hatch area, which also includes bags and tie-downs for the glass roof panels.
The standard engine in the Z28 was the L34 305 cubic inch V8, now designated the 5.0. No, itâ€™s not like todayâ€™s 600 horsepower Camaros, but thatâ€™s not the point of a vintage car. Instead, it provides a window into the kind of fun we were having back when acid washed jeans and Duran Duran were cool. And believe me, itâ€™s OK to wish for a time machine to go back to those days. One squeeze of the throttle and this Camaro will do it. The 4-barrel carburetor provides plenty of punch and thereâ€™s always a bunch of torque on tap to make it feel light on its feet. This one is completely unmodified save for the â€œ5.0 Liter H.O.â€ decal on the air cleaner, but the red letters look so good in the engine bay that we decided to leave it alone. Being stock means that itâ€™s reliable and easy to service, but if you need more power, upgrades are just a phone call away and you can do all of it yourself on a Saturday afternoon. Remember those days? Yeah, too cool.
The chassis is likewise quite original, but aside from some dirt and grim and surface scale on the heavy metal parts, itâ€™s completely solid. The floors are unmarked, so the structure is as solid as any T-top Camaro can be, and thereâ€™s no evidence of accident damage or rust repairs. The 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is a great partner to the 5.0, offering quick downshifts and a towering overdrive gear that allows this car to cruise effortlessly at speeds thatâ€™ll still land you in jail. The exhaust is original except for a stock replacement muffler with dual outlets and a nice V8 rumble that doesnâ€™t get annoying. It drives extremely well, and you might recall that â€œRoad & Trackâ€ magazine called the 1984 Camaro Z28 the â€œBest handling car in the country.â€ It sure is entertaining, even today. Attractive 5-spoke aluminum wheels are a timeless design and carry suitably fat 215/65/15 Firestone radials at all four corners.
The original ownerâ€™s manual is included.
