RARE WHITE ON BLUE Z28 T-TOP, GREAT PERIOD-CORRECT LOOK, SOLID DRIVER!!
This 1980 Camaro Z28 is proof that the muscle car didn't die, it just went on an extended vacation during the mid-70s. With a great-running 5.0-liter engine, a load of options, and that classic white paint job, you won't be sneaking around in this one, but then again, why would you want to?
The classic white paint with blue Z/28 stripes give this Camaro a look that captures the era perfectly. The car is also beautifully preserved, with either a quality repaint sometime in the past, or amazing presentation of the original finish. Either way, it looks authentic and this car could easily pass for a survivor. The aggressive chin spoiler shows no marks from run-ins with parking curbs, the lower rockers haven't been abused by flying debris, and the stripe package remains bright and vivid against the white paint. Judging by the condition of the grille, and the clarity of the taillights, I'd wager that this car has spent a good amount of its life protected and indoors, used only as a fair-weather toy.
The blue buckets will look familiar to any F-body fan, and they are as comfortable as they look. Like the bodywork, the interior is remarkably well preserved, with no splits or tears in the seat covers, and very little wear, even on the driver's side bolster, which always takes the most abuse. Plus, deep pile carpeting was all the rage in 1980, and it remains in good condition with no fading or matting from winter boots soaking it, and the door panels show only very minor signs of aging. This Z also includes things like T-tops, a center console, and an optional tachometer. Upgrades are limited to the entertainment system, which now offers AM/FM/cassette capabilities in a nicely integrated package. If you look closely, sure, you can find a few spots that are showing their age, but for this price, there's a lot of fun to be had and you can polish up those details over time.
The engine is a torquey 305 nestled into a highly original engine bay. Thankfully, this one has a few traditional upgrades, including an Edelbrock carburetor that probably breathes a little better than the original Rochester unit. Bright blue engine paint looks recently applied, and with the chrome valve covers and open-element air cleaner, looks better than any 33-year-old F-body engine bay has a right to. There's a lot of new equipment, all suggesting that someone truly loved this car and didn't care much about the price tag during the makeover. Underneath, it's clean and solid, with signs of recent service on both the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and 10-bolt rear end. A new dual exhaust system sounds amazing, so even if it isn't exactly an LS6, it certainly roars like one. The original alloy wheels show virtually zero curb rash and wear newer 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
