Assembled in Van Nuys, California and delivered to H&H Chevrolet in Omaha, Nebraska this pristine 1992 Camaro Z28 is one of the nicest third generation F-body survivors we've ever featured. It's original GM code 41 Black basecoat/clearcoat paint looks showroom new in every way and is an excellent example of just how surprisingly good GM was back in 1992. Naturally, since the car has been stored indoors all its life, rarely driven, and likely has not seen any rain at all, its bodywork presents as new in every way. The all original body panels display factory correct fit and finish which is actually quite good, and the cars infamous 'mile long' doors are rattle-free and close with ease. Any good body shop will tell you that getting a black car this straight isn't easy; and on this incredibly clean F3, the glossy hue really brings the cars chiseled flanks to life.
By the time this Z28 hit the production line, GM was abandoning its practice of flashy decals and, coincidentally, didn't even offer a 25th anniversary edition. Fortunately, the Camaro design had matured into a great looking sports car which could speak for itself. Up front, a showroom fresh plastic bumper props a clean F3 Camaro emblem between four clear headlights which are recessed into satin black buckets. Below those headlights, a rectangular grille centers bright fog lights between, clear parking lights which feature cool dynamic lenses. On top of the hood, body-matched louvers flow toward pristine factory glass which combines with optional T-tops to give the cockpit an airy, open feeling. The sides of the car carry a clean, monochromatic appearance which features black flip up door handles, body-matched sport mirrors, arrow straight belt trim, and sculpted rocker extensions with silver “Z28” decals as its only extraneous bits. And out back, a tall rear decklid spoiler hangs above a blacked out rear valence, factory fresh tri-color tail lights and a simple rear bumper which is branded with a third silver “Z28” emblem and the words “Tuned Port Injection”.
Fortunately, the guy who ordered this slick F3 knew exactly what he was doing when it came to selecting a good powertrain. In 1992, Chevrolet gave you a myriad of choices in the Camaro, ranging from a wheezing 140 horsepower V6 to a couple of quick V8s which included the LB9 305 found in this Z28. Most people know that GMs virtually indestructible 305 was one of their most widely used motors with the only difference in application being a few components and horsepower numbers. And with its snappy acceleration and broad top end, this engine helped establish the Z28 as the undisputed king of the pony cars. Wearing only 1,771 original miles, the pristine small block is completely unmodified and everything remains in factory-original condition with all the original markings, decals, and tags still in place as they should be. Judging by how clean the engine bay is, it's highly unlikely that this car has ever seen a wet road, and there's no sign of corrosion on any of the metal parts, the plastic components aren't brittle from heat soaking, and the wiring is as-new. When the car arrived here at RK Motors Charlotte, our ASE Certified mechanics fitted it with a new battery and performed some minor maintenance on both the air conditioning system and fuel system to ensure that it is fully sorted and ready to hit the road. Hop in, key it up, and the tuned port fuel injection provides instant fire which immediately settles into a characteristic Camaro rumble.
The bottom of this stealthy Z28, is a well-preserved time capsule which is original all the way down to its four 235/55 Goodyear Eagle tires and stylized 16 inch aluminum wheels. Front power discs combine with power rear drums to provide quick stops, and it's highly likely that, since this Camaro has been driven less than 2,000 miles, it still wears original factory pads and rotors. Behind those rotors, a performance biased front strut and rear coil suspension combines with standard power steering to give the car serious turning ability. And behind the small block engine, an original Borg Warner T5 5-speed manual transmission sends power to an original 10 bolt Posi-traction rear end with 3.08 cruising gears. Naturally, the exhaust system is OEM, and the solid floor pans are exceptionally clean displaying no rust or damage of any kind. There's no sign that this car has done anything except live a pampered life in a heated garage with an occasional exercise session to keep everything healthy and fit.
In excellent condition throughout, this cool Camaros all original gray interior presents no staining or fading and looks just as good as when the car rolled out of its Nebraska showroom. The bucket seats feel brand new and the carpet, which is protected by color-keyed floor mats, exhibits no appreciable wear. Above the seats, a gray headliner perfectly frames the cars T-tops; and at the sides of the seats, clean door panels hold warp-free arm rests below optional power door locks. At the center of the car, a pristine console carries switches for the power windows just behind the cars black 5-speed shifter. And in front of the driver, a super straight dash holds a mandatory “Z28 25th Anniversary” emblem, a Delco-Loc II stereo and CD player, and awesome looking yellow lit gauges behind a pristine factory steering wheel. Behind the cockpit, the cars hatch, which looks like it's never carried anything dirtier than a laundry bag, efficiently stows the glass T-tops and spare tire under a trick built in privacy shade. This car is essentially a new third generation Camaro. The AC blows cold, the radio works perfectly, the windows go up and down, and it's every bit the car you would have received from the dealer in 1992.
Documentation is just as you would expect from a pristine, low mileage collector car and includes the cars original dealer invoice and paperwork, original window sticker, original owner's manual and protection plan information, original dealer brochures and marketing material, complete maintenance records and a cool T-shirt.
Loaded with options and packing a powerful small block V8 engine, this 1992 Camaro Z28 has all the right ingredients to become a hot future collectible. It's an incredible low-mileage time capsule which has been extremely well preserved and would be the perfect car for any serious Camaro collector. If you've been patiently waiting for another opportunity to own the one that got away, here's your chance!
