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 1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 convertible is about as clean a representative of the models fourth generation as youre ever likely to come across, and for good reason. Its had the good fortune of having just two long term owners who have kept it consistently sheltered its entire life and never exposed it to any undue elements. Add to that its unusually light mileage - fewer than 19,000 - and you can see that this droptop Chevy represents an opportunity that doesnt come around very often. The exterior still features its original bright red paint - not just the color, but the paint itself. Its quality was outstanding to begin with and, having been spared from much UV exposure and driven with care over the years, its in top form, sporting a shine that seems to start a foot beneath the surface. Had the back story on this car included embarking from the assembly line to a showroom turntable and staying put over the years, it wouldnt seem far-fetched at all. Chevy brought back the convertible option just a year before this 95 came out and aesthetically speaking, its a great match for the sleek, aerodynamic form. Whether the Hartz black cloth convertible top, which itself is in ultra clean condition and features a glass rear window, is in its raised or lowered position, this car looks like it was made to be in this configuration all along. Just as whats on display outside, the black leather interior is in outstanding condition. Premature aging from sun damage is always a concern when a convertible - especially one with black upholstery - is involved, but theres no such worry here, as everything inside the doors is still looking great. The contoured front buckets and rear seats remain impressively clean, and all the components surrounding them look pretty much as they did when new, including the factory AM/FM/CD stereo mounted at the center of the dash. Being a relatively modern muscle car, if offers plenty of comfort and convenience features on board, including air conditioning, a tilt column, power seats, power windows and door locks and a rear window defogger - something that really comes in handy during cold weather. Driver and passenger side airbags provide an added measure of safety, while the included anti-theft device helps keep this sharp-looking ride from leaving your possession unintended. This Z/28 is powered by a fuel injected 350 cubic inch LT1 V8 that sits in a very nicely detailed compartment, without so much as a wire out of place. Being so lightly travelled, the engine is really just now entering its prime as it teams with both a 4-speed automatic 4L60E transmission whose overdrive gear brings RPMs down at highway speeds, as well as a posi traction rear end. After having been owned for a good part of its lifetime by a Chevy employee who maintained it diligently, this Camaros most recent owner followed suit, just recently giving the car a going over from front to back while replacing all belts, hoses, fluids and a number of other parts and seals just to ward off any potential issues down the road. During that process, new front and rear sway bar link bushings were added - so youll hear no squeaking while cruising down the road. There are new pads and rotors, allowing the featured 4 wheel power disc brakes to bring this vehicles set of 17 ZR1 style wheels wrapped with Firestone Wide Oval tires to prompt, dependable stops. With its sleek aerodynamic form and an outstanding condition both inside and out, this 1995 Chevrolet Camaro must be seen to be fully appreciated. Call today!
