1983 Chevrolet Camaro
Zee Whole Story...
With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.
Classic Car Overview
The Z28 engines were changed for 1983: the LU5 Crossfire 305 V8 was rated at 175 hp and was supplemented in April 1983 by an all-new 5.0 L L69 4 bbl 190 hp (142 kW) High-Output (HO) V8. This engine was only available with a manual transmission in 1983. Due to its late introduction, 3,223 L69 V8s were sold for the 1983 model year. Transmissions were upgraded for 1983. A Borg-Warner 5-speed manual transmission replaced the previous 4-speed. A 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive replaced the 3-speed automatic transmission in the Z28. The TH700-R4 automatic overdrive was also available on the base coupe and Berlinetta but was not available with the L69 H.O. engine in the Z28 for 1983.14 Aside from the new transmissions, base coupe and Berlinetta carried on as in 1982 with very little change other than newly available colors.
