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
Description 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z28 History The third-generation Chevrolet Camaro was introduced for the 1982 model year by Chevrolet. These were also the first Camaros with factory fuel injection, four-speed automatic transmissions, five-speed manual transmissions, four-cylinder engines, 16-inch wheels, and hatchback bodies. Why This Car Is Special In 1985, Chevrolet introduced the Camaro IROC-Z, an acronym for International Race of Champions Z28. The IROC was a Z28 upgrade package and offered buyers a specially tuned suspension, staggered front and rear wheels, a unique sway bar and a host of other features, many of which were similar to or borrowed directly from Corvette. This 1987 Camaro IROC-Z that we have at Skyway Classics has much more in the engine compartment than what it came with. Mechanics Our IROC has a modified L98 5.7L Tuned Port Injected V-8 engine with 4-speed overdrive automatic transmission, modified intake system reworked air intake system with Ram Air, custom valve covers, high performance spark plug wire kit, headers and much more. The TPI 350 motor was distinguishable from the TPI 305 by checking the VIN (8th character, F=305, 8=350). The 350 L98 gave a boost to 225 hp @ 4400 and 330ftlb @ 2800 and received hydraulic roller lifters and new valve cover/head design. Valve covers featured new sealing and center bolts in the valve covers. Spent gasses exit through the headers into the dual exhaust system and out the rear tips. The IROC rides on the correct factory 5-spoke mag wheels on performance tires. Interior The red cloth bucket seat interior our IROC has is nice with matching red carpet, dash, console, and side panels. It is loaded with factory options like automatic transmission with overdrive and B & M custom shifter, glass top, Power windows and locks, Cruise control,Tilt column, and AM/FM/Cassette stereo. Exterior The IROC has all the classic lines covered n white paint with the largest visual change this year was the third brake light was now mounted inside the rear spoiler instead of on top of the rear hatch. The Camaro has all the factory correct emblems, graphics hood scoops to give it that IROC look. Conclusion This 1987 Chevrolet IROC Z Camaro has the right look and stance, and can back it up with more horses than it came stock with. It is a real nice car to cruise in or go to the shows.
