This 1983 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 already has you hooked with its great period presentation that these earlier 3rd-gens are known for, but rarely still seen today
And more than just look retro-cool, the deeper you dig, the more you discover that this is a loaded coupe with a fuel-injected V8 and overdrive transmission.
The full color package is what makes this Z/28 leave a terrific first impression. This was first purchased in Arizona, and the beige with golden stripes just looks like the last moments of a desert sunset. It’s the correct color combo for this car, but it was updated later in life. There are even custom elements like the Firebird fender vents. And we love the striping that starts at the hood, runs through the doors, and goes up the b-pillar to meet on the roof. The full presentation has some room for improvement if you want to take some of the savings on this value-priced classic and reinvest in custom details. Plus, you have all the best Z/28 pieces, like the rear spoiler and special 15-inch wheels. And the Z-car’s black hood trim and headlight buckets go with the other dark trim on the car. It makes for a total package that looks absolutely vintage and seriously sporty.
The interior has an impressively preserved presentation. In fact, it’s even believed that this coupe stayed with one family most of its life, and so it shows better care then you’d expect on a car approaching its 40th birthday. Bucket seats and a center console give this a great driver’s classic feeling. The sports steering wheel has an open top design and it’s on a tilt column. So it gives you a good view of the full gauge package. And Camaro fans know that only the first few years had the distinct dual mph/kph speedometer. This does have a low odometer, but we do not have any documentation to suggest or dispute it reflects the car’s actual mileage. This Camaro also has the best useful factory features, like a premium Delco AM/FM/cassette stereo, cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning.
Under the hood is another rarity. The 305 cubic-inch V8 with Cross-Fire fuel injection. This was only available for two years, and so it gives this coupe added distinction, especially because it’s believed to be original to the car. This V8 fires up nicely, runs smoothly, and the four-speed automatic transmission gives you easy cruising overdrive. Plus, with features like power steering, power brakes, front dies, and the Z/28’s sports suspension, this classic remains a solid all-around driver.
