Z-28 is the most famous Chevrolet RPO (regular production option) code ever
No other option code has become so synonymous with high performance. Other option codes have been used for well-known packages such as Z22 (Rally Sport) and Z27 (Super Sport), but the option names/descriptions became famous, not the RPO number. It has also been said that 2 doors and 8 cylinders, but this could be a coincidence because 28 was the next code in line!
For consignment one of the LOWEST mileage examples in the entire country! A mere 5,412 original documented miles, and this car looks and feels all the part. 1982 was the only year 3rd generation offering a black interior option, and this car took it! That showroom smell has left it, however the looks remain, and for the taking, and your storing, showing or driving around it is like new in all aspects.
Perfectly aligned body panels bathed in black still retaining its shine show off for the eye all around this car. Just above the rockers, a dual red striped band encircling the entire car and accentuating the black is seen. And for more highlighting just below this red is some silver not to be out done, it is wider and wraps the entire bottom of this car. Within this strip are some red 3D Z28 badges, in the front quarter just in case you forgot what you are driving! Neoprene front crash bumpers are nearly perfect and have dual rectangular headlights deeply inserted within. Door handles, sport mirrors on either side, and black trimmings for the window surrounds denote the impending doom about to befall any challenger. A nicely and gracefully sloping rear greenhouse glass takes our eye to the rear spoiler and taillight section, which is mounted in an inverted V and iconic look for the Z28’s. 15-inch spoked magnesium wheels are all around and wrapped in original rubber.
Black vinyl perfectly aligned covers the door panels with a swing of them. Inside black tweed broadcloth inserts yield to black smooth vinyl surrounds and create the classy, and sporty look for these front high back buckets in this model’s interior. Dueling buckets you may say, as these are also in the back of the car, in low back form, offering up plenty of room. Black carpeting is flooding the floors and is pristine. Above floats the dash with its simple design and round black bezeled gauges in front of the original steering wheel. The center and passenger side is all smooth, clean black molded vinyl. Just below the dash in the car center, is the beginnings of the console with temp sliders, and an AM/FM radio with ERS (Expanded Range Sound) stereo. Moving to the hump is the shifter for the 4-speed manual transmission, window toggles trunk release and a quartz clock, all very clean with not even a hint of dust. A tight black headliner is above and all is well on this like new (and it is! ) interior.
A shiny, nicely showroom presenting and condition 305ci V8 fits snugly into the engine bay. A single Rochester 4-barrel carburetor is atop the correct 4-speed manual transmission is on back. For the rear gears we note a 10-bolt pumpkin, with a 2.73 ratio.
You can say a thing of beauty with no road dirt because this car has never been driven in rain. I can see some rattle can painting that has masked some slight surface rust on the rear axle and suspension, but tubs, rockers, fuel tank and other underpinnings are solid factory pressed steel and very clean. Independent coil springs for the front, and a torque arm for the rear, which also have been rattle can sprayed, are the suspension. Power disc brakes are upfront, and power drums for the back.
Due to the low mileage and wanting to keep it that way, we limited our drive to just the basics, Yes it starts right up, idles smoothly and drives very nicely. All functions were working perfectly, and it is noted that this car is unbelievably clean.
Low Low mileage always is a good thing on a classic car such as this 1982 Z28. All is well in bowtie land, and we have a must see classic in our halls that harkens right back to 1982.
