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

With show car looks, a turbocharged V6 from a Pontiac Turbo Pace Car, and a top that goes down, this 1987 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 convertible does everything well. Exceptionally well built, it can probably still win trophies, but once you experience the thrill that comes with turbocharged performance, maybe putting it on the show field wont be a priority. The car was finished in 2005, but youd never know it by looking at the stunning paint. It is Lamborghini Orange over Cadillac Silver, and the combination looks fantastic on the vintage F-body. Finish work is exemplary throughout, with show-quality work visible everywhere you look. Yes, those hood scoops are from a Trans Am, but they work rather well on the Camaro, dont you think? And the rest is standard Z/28, from the chin spoiler to the side skirts to the tall rear spoiler, all accentuated by that gorgeous paint job. The original emblems and badges were reinstalled, just in case you didnt recognize it, but despite the somewhat radical look, its not that far removed from stock. The doors open and close easily, the urethane parts arent cracked or damaged, and if we were really picking nits, the best we could do is one or two tiny nicks in the finish. Seriously, this is a spectacular car. Aside from the obvious 6-point roll cage, the interior remains largely stock, and thats a good thing. Check out those deeply bolstered Recaro bucket seats from a Trans Am Pace Car, complete with the cool mesh head rests, all upholstered in grippy cloth that keeps you pasted in place. A Turbo Trans Am also donated the trick steering wheel and instrument panel, although the white-faced gauges are a nice upgrade (and youll note there is a boost gauge for the turbocharged engine, along with an aftermarket dial on the A-pillar). Its still loaded with options like power windows, a tilt wheel, A/C (needs to be serviced), and a recent AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that sounds good, top up or top down. The convertible top is a handsome black canvas piece that fits well and stows invisibly under a hard rear tonneau, giving the Camaro a sleek top-down look. The trunk is modest, with much of it occupied by a custom stereo setup with twin amplifiers and a big subwoofer. The heart of the car is a turbocharged 3.8 liter V6 that saw duty first in the Buick Grand National and later in the Pontiac Turbo Pace Car of 1989. They were modestly under-rated, but with a few choice upgrades, they can be some of the most formidable machines on the street. Its a neat swap into the Camaros engine bay, and since the factory already did the engineering on the Turbo Trans Am, its very OEM-looking. A few chrome dress-up parts reinforce the show car vibe and it retains all the factory controls, so it starts easily, idles well (if youre familiar with GMs V6 turbos, you know theyre not perfect at idle), and pulls like a freight train out on the road. The 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and allows the V6 to build boost quickly on the roll, and the Camaros suspension didnt need any tweaking to handle the added power. It still has big disc brakes, fat stabilizer bars, and a torque arm rear suspension that really plants the rear end. 4-wheel disc brakes are standard equipment and the custom exhaust system sounds awesome, with a unique sound that turbo lovers will understand. Flashy chrome wheels add to the show car good looks and carry staggered 245/40/18 front and 255/35/20 rear performance radials. Beautifully built, very fast, and still fun to drive, this is a heck of a bargain at any price. You couldnt duplicate the paint and bodywork for the asking price, never mind the turbo motor upgrade.
