Sleek, stunning, powerful, and loaded…this 1972 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 LS1 Restomod is a fresh build with everything you want
So as you spot the fuel-injected Corvette heart, six-speed, detailed paintwork, and custom A/C interior, you can see that this one nails your full wish list.
The numbers tells us that this is a real-deal Z/28, and so that already has plenty of you out there excited. And that’s also why they took the time to restore this one right. It takes the proper Z-car attitude, and turns up the performance and aggression. You really see it in the paint. With less than 100 miles on the full build, this has the sleek kind of black that makes the hard shine look wet. Not only does this luster add definition to the extra crisp sheetmetal, but also to the aggressive Z/28 parts, like the deep chin spoiler and full width rear spoiler. This has the iconic pieces you love, like the RS-style front end with mirror-like split bumpers and a big/aggressive grille at the center. And some of the upgrades are quite subtle. Only the Z-cars get to properly wear racing stripes, so detail-oriented people will love when they discover the dark gray ones that have a ghost-like appearance. Plus, the wheels look like classic Z/28 units, but the larger 17-inch size means you get to fit modern sport tires.
The interior keeps the fresh feeling going in this restored coupe. The seats, door panels, carpet, headliner, and dash all have a new like appearance. This was upgraded for added comfort with a retro-style AM/FM digital stereo and cold-blowing air conditioning. But what you’ll really love is how this was made just for the driver. You have an upgraded sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and that gives you a clear view of the full Dakota Digital gauge package. And the large tach goes especially well with the Hurst shifter. Plus, it will be hard to beat the feeling of awakening the beast with the push-button start.
While the Z-cars of this era were known for a hot 350 cubic-inch V8 under the hood, this one keeps the displacement but upgrades it to a modern juggernaut. It’s a fuel-injected 5.7-liter LS1 borrowed from a far more modern Corvette. These LS motors are the backbone of what keeps Chevy muscle so desirable in modern times. And this one is installed with some great upgrades, too, like an aluminum radiator, Dirty Dingo brackets, and shorty headers that feed into a rather straight set of dual exhaust pipes. You get to take full advantage of this powerhouse upgrade, because it’s also mated to the correct six-speed manual transmission. The undercarriage photos remind you how fresh this build is over every inch, and that also means useful details, like new bushings. Add in four-wheel power disc brakes and grippy ZR-rated tires, and you have an awesomely upgraded Camaro.
