----------

There's no doubting the F1 Camaro's significance in the collector car world. Like the '57 Bel Air and C2 Corvette, first-generation F-Bodies are considered one of the all-time great Chevrolet classics. That said, the popularity of second-generation Camaros is certainly growing. Ask any young enthusiast what their favorite year panther is and you're just as likely to hear “1970” “1973” or “1980” as “1967”, “1968” or “1969”. But here's the kicker: at this point in time, there simply aren't that many really nice F2s on the market. And that's why it's a great idea to get ahead of the curve by investing a little money in this clean Z28. Sporting a correct 350/4-speed drivetrain and conservative Dark Blue over Oyster aesthetics, this Z is a vision of opportunistic '80s performance. And, as a fully sorted cruiser that's benefitted from almost 40 years of excellent maintenance, it's a solid piece of classic car potential that's available for relatively modest money!

BODYWORK/TRIM

General Motors envisioned the second-generation Camaro as a working man's Ferrari and, thanks to a better timeframe and bigger budget, effectively addressed many of the complaints enthusiasts had about the F1. Longer, wider, lower to the ground and more aggressive, the 'hugger' was certainly more of a driver's car, and is widely regarded as some of the best iron Detroit ever produced. Born in Norwood, Ohio, this F2 has been exceptionally maintained by fastidious owners for over 37 years. The car's solid sheetmetal, a sporty profile that's supplemented with correct door guards and factory T-tops, reflects subdued Dark Blue Metallic pigment. Tri-color emblems, Silver stripes and tri-color taillights highlight satin grilles, satin buckets, correct spoilers, and original brightwork. And, as far as we can tell, this coupe has never been fully disassembled, with the aforementioned owners choosing to wear the car's slight weathering as a badge of honor.

ENGINE

Tilt this Chevy's long hood and you'll find a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that proudly displays a correct 14010207 casting number. The car's big Quadrajet carburetor, sealed to a single-snorkel, cowl induction air cleaner, funnels life in to a correct, cast iron intake. At the sides of that intake, correct heads hang stamped and painted valve covers over correct, cast iron exhaust manifolds. Behind those tubes, a factory distributor sequences fire through pliable plug wires. In front of those cables, a dressed and decaled radiator circulates coolant through GM-branded hoses. And the car's factory-spec aesthetics mix smooth, Satin Black framing with a vivid GM Corporate Blue core.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

In 1980, the only transmission you wanted in your Z28 was a tough Borg Warner Super T10 4-speed, and that's exactly what lives behind this car's stout small block. Naturally, that gear slinger centers a correct 13-04-065-904 casting number in front of a correct, posi-traction axle that's stuffed with correct, 3.08 gears. That driveline hangs in a correct F41 Sport Suspension, which combines correct power steering with correct power front disc and rear drum brakes. Those bones are dissected by factory-style exhaust, which centers a big catalytic converter in front of GM-branded mufflers. Above those pipes, solid floors wear thick undercoating. And those floors roll on factory alloy wheels, which spin 225/70R15 Goodyear Polysteel Radials around snazzy Z28 center caps.

INTERIOR

Open the car's big doors and you'll find a correct Deluxe Interior that's been maintained to factory specifications. A quartet of cloth buckets is free of significant wear. In front of those seats, a muted dash hangs a vintage Clarion tape deck under a full array of factory telemetry. At the bottom of that dash, a muted console centers a chrome shifter and buttons for correct power windows on fade-free carpet that's protected by color-keyed floor mats. Opposite that console, 1-piece door panels frame correct power door locks. And the driver stays connected through a familiar, 4-spoke steering wheel, which laps a correct tilt column.
