This 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 tribute has been given an upgrade in style
With bold red paint, a classic bucket seat interior, and a hardy small block under the hood, power, and comfort to be the right mix of a true classic machine that also is a terrific driver.
These second-generation Camaros had a design that represented both sleek and muscular all in one glance. You see this fastback-style coupe body done in a bold shade of red. It’s a modern upgrade that has a clearcoat luster for a smooth look and shine in the sunlight. In fact, speaking of smooth, the painted black racing stripes are even part of the cleared over package. When you combine that with good body panels, you get to really enjoy how the sunshine rolls evenly over the sheet metal. Good-looking bezels, trim, and chrome bumpers give you a quality classic American style. But the details you’ll like the best are all about a speedy Chevy. It has the proper Z/28 upgraded appearance with the badging, chin spoiler, rear spoiler, and tall power dome of the steel cowl hood. The 18-inch American Racing wheels have a competition-style look and an extra meaty set in the rear for an even more powerful appearance.
The black stripes of the exterior also get you ready for the full black interior. The door panels, headliner, carpet, and the other fundamentals look quite good. It gets you ready for a driver’s car, especially with all the right details. You get high-back bucket seats, a center console in-between, a horseshoe shifter, and the classic Chevy sports steering wheel. This one likes to keep it looking stock and vintage, right down to the button-top seatbacks. In fact, the only upgrades you may really notice are worthwhile pieces, like the AM/FM/CD stereo for better driving music and the auxiliary gauge trio to keep you better informed about what’s going on under the hood.
The engine bay has dark inner walls, and that makes the bright block and polished motor components stand out even more. This is a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 that now has a Holley four-barrel carburetor, ProComp intake, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. And there are the right supporting pieces, too, like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. This one fires up eagerly, and the upgraded cam combines with the glasspack-style exhaust to give you a terrific V8 tone. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and modern ZR-rated tires, and this Z-car tribute is a solid all-around driver.
The color, the power, and the upgrades all make this Z/28 Camaro tribute a true stand-out.
