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

One of the finest 1979 Camaro Z/28 Sport Coupes on the market! Only two owners since new, and documented fully at only 42,543 actual miles! All factory, numbers matching including the color combination! Splendid investment in every way, and a perfect car to show or drive! Dont hesitate on this one! The Camaro had been an instant success since its inception in 1967 to compete with the popular Ford Mustang. Once Chevrolet began to identify the performance packages, the Trans Am-inspired Z/28 option was appealing to those who preferred power over comfort. Early on, the Z/28 was not allowed to be mated to anything other than a 4-speed transmission, and features like air conditioning were not allowed to be attached to the order form. It was a raw option, and definitely not for everyone. As time went on, the Z/28 package was freed to allow an automatic transmission by 1970, and air conditioning hit the option checklist by 1974. Sadly, the Z/28 departed the Chevrolet lineup in 1975. It wasnt until 1977 that the Z/28 would return as its own model, instead of an option. These late 1970s Camaro had become rather sculpted in appearance with the 350ci V8 being the highest output offering in the Camaro lineup. In 1978, the urethane bumpers rounded the exterior body presentation nicely, and a non-functional hood scoop gave the car a sporty presence. Although, you were forced to accept the elaborate exterior Z/28 body decal sticker kit absent the option to order without. Hence in 1979, customers who wanted the top-of-the-line model could ask that the D88 Z/28 Stripe be deleted to give the car a cleaner overall presentation. The original owner of the Camaro offered here jumped at the chance to custom order his Camaro in 1979 exactly as you see it in these images, without any Z/28 stickers hindering the lines. He then kept it in his careful possession for the next 27 years! We are excited to offer this 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Sport Coupe in factory code 19L/19U- Black exterior over 74R-Carmine Red Vinyl interior! This special customer ordered example features its original, numbers matching 350ci V8 engine and automatic transmission.

As mentioned before, this original owner ordered this example D88- Stripe delete! It was delivered new from Ray Catena Chevrolet in Fairlawn, NJ to Anthony Deriso on April 2nd, 1979 of Hackensack, NJ with just 6 miles on the odometer. Mr. Deriso would cherish his Camaro sparingly and later moved to California in March 1999. It would always be garaged, and maintained to collector standards while in his care.
