1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

You've probably been watching our inventory lately and seen several of these astounding low-mile second-generation F-bodies come through. This 1979 Camaro Z/28 is from that same collection and it's just as amazing as the rest. Showing just over 8,000 original miles, t's both an awesome survivor and a skillfully updated car that's ready to be driven. Either way, ou're going to be pleased with it.The bright red paint is this car's original finish. Not merely the original color, ut the original paint, nd it's remarkably well-preserved. Despite the popularity of bright red, ou don't see too many 1979 Z/28s in that particular hue, robably because brown was all the rage that year. The sheetmetal, he decals, he paint, nd even the spoilers are all factory-issue and remarkably well-preserved. The '79 Z/28 was a great-looking car with that cool hood and famous ducktail spoiler, nd thanks to an engine upgrade, his one actually runs every bit as great as it looks. Fit and finish are exactly the way the factory did it and you'll be pleasantly surprised by how well the urethane bumpers match the bodywork, omething GM struggled with throughout the '70s. Things like the glass, mblems, nd lenses are all vintage 1979 pieces and remarkably well-preserved, aking this car a slam-dunk in preservation class competition.The same goes for the tan interior, hich is a time-capsule from the disco era. Seats, arpets, oor panels, nd just about everything else inside this car is original. The seats show almost zero wear, he carpets are like new, nd even the floor mats are installed upside-down to help preserve their faces for the future. This Z is also heavily optioned, ncluding factory A/C (still ice cold thanks to an R134a conversion), ower windows, nd a 4-speed manual transmission, ut oddly enough, t appears to also be a factory radio delete, hich is kind of cool. The gauges look new, he steering wheel isn't cracked or faded, nd, ell, f you want a fresh 1979 Camaro, hey don't come much fresher than this. The trunk is outfitted with an original black carpet set as well as its original space-saver spare, ack assembly, nd inflator bottle, one of which have ever been used.Under the hood, hings get a little interesting. So this is an ultra-low-mile car. What do you do with it? Driving it reduces its value right? Well, ow about yanking the original engine and replacing it with a ZZ4 crate motor, hich has been detailed to look exactly like the factory 350? You could check the numbers and learn that it's not original, ut it'll pass muster at the shows and with an extra 120 horsepower on tap compared to the 1979 spec, bet it's a lot more fun to drive. It starts, uns, rives, nd handles like it just rolled off the showroom floor, xcept nobody ever had a '79 Camaro this fast. The exhaust system has been upgraded to a true dual setup without the pesky catalytic converter, ut otherwise the undercarriage is 100% as it was in 1979 and every bit as well-preserved as the rest of the car. 3.73 gears mean that performance is extremely entertaining, lthough you might want to take it easy on those vintage Goodyears, hich are likely only the second set of tires this car has ever worn.The original, atching-numbers engine is available, aking this Camaro a tantalizing view into your choices for its future. Regardless, t's one of the cleanest we've ever seen. Call today!
