Known History

 

1971 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

s/n 124871N560844

White with Black stripes and Black Interior

 

Sitting on the sidelines and watching Ford’s runaway success with the Mustang, GM hastily developed its own “pony car”, which would appear in Autumn of 1966 in the form of the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. Thus, two additional American legends were born, and GM’s loyal customers finally had a hip smallish sporting car that could be outfitted with some pretty serious earthshaking powerplants. The second generation cars, introduced for the 1970 model year, were not as rushed in development and are consequently a bit more refined in terms of both comfort and performance. During this period, emissions requirements continuously sapped power, and the highest performing model, the Z28, was altogether axed after 1974, but not before the power was reduced to 245hp, compared to the 330hp available in the 1971 Z28. The 1971 Camaro with Z28 Special Performance Package was powered by a 350cid LT1 engine with 4-barrel carburetor, special camshaft, solid lifters, and larger valves. In addition to the engine, the Z28 specification also included heavy duty suspension, special shock absorbers, rear sway bar, Hurst shifter, positraction rear end, quicker ratio steering, heavy duty radiator, special instrumentation, rear spoiler, unique wheels, and Z28 striping and badging.

 

Since many of these cars were modified or altered for drag racing, road racing, or to suit the owner’s desires, it is very rare to find a fundamentally unmolested Z28 such as this one. This car is quite correct on the whole, with the right shifter, wheels, spoiler, and badging. The car has been nicely restored, and the engine is of the correct type and bears a correct date code, but is a non-matching unit. It remains in its original colors and was built in Norwood, Ohio.

 

Cosmetically, the car is in extremely nice condition, with very good quality paint over straight panels. The trim and chrome is very nice throughout, including the wheels, though there is light pitting on the rear bumper. The glass and lamps are in good shape, although one of the headlamps has a small hole in it. It is a sealed beam unit, however, and is easy to replace at a local automotive parts store. There are two small areas of non-structural bubbling in the bottom of the right door skin, about the size of a dime and a quarter respectively.

 

 

The interior is in very fine shape. It is complete and very well preserved. The carpets, upholstery and dashboard are in excellent shape, as are the door panels. There is one corner of the instrument binnacle trim that is missing, but the interior is outstanding on the whole. The instruments are also excellent, and the car retains its safety belts, including headliner attachments. An oil pressure gauge has been discretely added below the dashboard.

 

The engine compartment is extremely clean and nicely detailed. The inner fenders have been nicely restored, and the decals throughout the engine compartment have been faithfully reproduced, including those on the radiator and the top of the air cleaner. The car is equipped with tubular headers which appear to have been jet-hot coated.

 

This is a fine opportunity to acquire a genuine Camaro Z28 that has been nicely restored and retains its original Z28 equipment. It represents one of the last great American pony cars, and is extremely clean, solid, and presents very nicely.
