Upgraded V8 power, four-on-the-floor, bold looks, and the right upgrades for a great driver’s classic – this 1979 Chevrolet Camaro is the sleek vintage coupe you’ve been waiting for
Red and black are the two most aggressive colors around, and so this enhanced Camaro gets its attitude just right. The red paint is an update later in life, and so it has a contemporary style that uses a cleaner look and no decals. It seems to let the car’s full body kit with flared fenders and three-piece spoiler flow into the overall style. It also makes for a good background to show off the aggressive dark pieces. The hood scoop trim, grille, headlight surrounds, side louvers, door handles, and rear panel. Overall, it’s a driver-quality appearance, and that’s because this is a driver-ready car. That’s why you have the competition-style Torq Thrust wheel in a larger 18-inch size. They fit with the vintage attitude while also letting you fit better driving tires.
The color theme switches for the interior where the black is now dominant and the red is used to accent details like the shifter knob. There are clean carpets, a fresh headliner, a newer dash, and good upholstery. It makes for a good atmosphere for family and friends, and there’s an AM/FM/CD stereo so they can be entertained. But the best treats are reserved for the driver. The sporty NK4 steering wheel is on a tilt column, and there’s a fully upgraded set of AutoMeter Phantom II readouts. And that large tach goes great with the bold shifter in the center console.
The Z/28s of this generation were desirable because they had a stout 350 cubic-inch V8. This one takes that legacy up a notch. It has a sharper sense of style with the black valve covers and matching air grabber. Plus, there are the right added polished elements. Best of all, it’s upgraded for more power with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Torker II intake, and headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. You get complete control over this enhanced motor and its performance soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Out on the streets, the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and grippy sports tires make for a great total package.
