1988-1992 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE: The Original Factory Racer

With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.


The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.


Classic Car Overview

Second-generation Camaros are heating up, and this 1978 Chevrolet Camaro RS represents an opportunity to get a car with an awesome look and plenty of upgrades that make it a blast to drive today, all at a very affordable price. Better yet, its not a garden-variety Z/28 but a rather cool coupe that is sure to stand out in a crowd. That brilliant blue paint isnt how this one was ordered, but you cant argue with how it looks today. Its a good quality respray that will work well at the local cruise night and as youre flying down the road, but isnt a fragile show-quality job that you need to fret over. Adding a set of silver Z/28 stripes certainly helps with the aggressive look and the pattern looks exactly right on this handsome F-body. The base models didnt get the Zs hood, but they added a cowl-induction hood during the freshening and it looks great with all the badges neatly shaved for a laser-clean look. The big doors fit well, the rear spoiler lines up right, and, well, it has all the hallmarks of a nice car and one that has always been someones favorite toy. Even the urethane bumper caps look great and fit better than most. Is it perfect? No. But at this price, you wont find many nicer. The black interior is nicely updated with a lot of new gear. Cloth buckets are a bit less aggressive than those found in the Z/28 but its still quite sporty inside, particularly with a center console for the 3-speed automatic transmission. The seats, carpets, door panels, and even the dash pad are new and in very good condition and show few signs of age and use. The steering wheel and instrument panel are original and showing some age, with the gauges covering the basics of speed and fuel level. The original AM/FM stereo radio is still in the center of the dash and it does work properly. This car also features factory A/C that works with new hardware and R134a refrigerant to make it easy to service in the future. The trunk is in good order and needs nothing more than a mat to be ready to go. The wheezy original 2-barrel 305 is gone, replaced by a 350 cubic inch GM crate motor with a host of upgrades. The work was done recently and the great-running small block features a new Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor as well as a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. At a glance, it looks pretty stock and if we hadnt just told you, it might be easy to pass this off as the original engine unless you check the numbers. The look is correct and aside from the air cleaner, it looks fairly OEM. It runs beautifully and makes great power, particularly when churning the gears in the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. 3.08 gears out back make it a fantastic highway cruiser and the suspension is equally at home on the long highways or the twisting country roads. Awesome blacked-out Rally wheels look industrial with just a small center cap and wear recent BFGoodrich T/A radials. Great to look at, fun to drive, and easy on the wallet, this Camaro gets all the important stuff right. Call today!
