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
This 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z/28 would be a great score for the collector who prizes classic curb appeal yet doesnt want to sacrifice driving experience in its quest. It wears an eye-catching color scheme and runs with confidence-inspiring assuredness - this Chevy came along at just the right time to be factory-equipped with a number of features that contribute to its outstanding road-readiness. The high impact black color combined with an angular third generation form makes this Z/28 a classic that demands attention. As you circle the car to get a closer look, you wont find any glaring blemishes to diminish your enthusiasm, and only a thorough detailing will be in order to elevate its already magnetic appearance even further. Nice, even gaps surrounding the doors, hood and rear hatch to indicate that this Camaros exterior alignment remains in fine form and the added tinted windows inject a tasteful touch of customization on an exterior that otherwise remains in its original configuration. The T-top configuration that comes part and parcel with this generation of Camaros is a big plus, offering the exhilaration of open air driving when you so choose, with more shelter just a couple of easy steps away - the panels included with this 88 are in nice shape and seal well. Inside, the gray interior mixes cloth and vinyl to good effect and is in strong overall shape, featuring front buckets that still have plenty of miles left on them, and a rear bench seat that seems surprisingly fresh. With door panels to each side that show no marked discoloration and still sit flush, and interior trim thats in consistently good condition, this is a vital looking, functional driving environment - the buckets feature power adjustability, the center console is looking clean and an aftermarket Sony AM/FM/CD stereo is on board to fill the cabin with sound. The instrument cluster holds a collection of factory gauges that are still nice and clear and in strong working order. This upper crust Camaro left the factory with air conditioning installed and its compressor still blows with plenty of strength - a simple Freon charge will have the feature back online. Raise the hatchback and youll find a rear storage area thats more spacious than youd likely expect and it remains in good shape - it doesnt actually appear to have seen all that much use over the years. In representing the third generation of its model, this 88 was not only afforded a number of mechanical advances to improve the motoring experience it offers, but it also benefitted from year over year refinements that elevated that experience even further. This Camaro is a solid driver, propelled by a 350 cubic inch V8 fed by fuel injection that offers better all-weather performance than its carbureted predecessors while sitting in a thoroughly stock but well-maintained engine compartment. Dressed up with a pair of aftermarket valve covers, the 350 is likely the original powerplant and sends a deep, resonant note out of the added Flowmaster dual exhaust, teaming with a 4-speed automatic transmission overdrive gear that brings highway speed RPMs down to a level well out of reach of Chevys previous generations of transmissions. Youll find power disc brakes at all four corners for fade-resistant, prompt stopping ability, while power steering makes for ease of navigation. A set of 17 American Racing wheels with a glossy black color, original wheels included as well, that ties in perfectly with the exterior and wrapped with Michelin tires still showing plenty of tread puts just the right finishing touch on this very appealing Chevy classic. Looking sharp and ready to roll, this 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z/28 is a slick, strong running classic. Call today!
