1972 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
With the arrival of the muscle car era in the 60's Chevrolet needed a "pony car" to compete with Ford's Mustang. The answer was the Camaro which was introduced in 1967. Pony cars were characterized by their long hoods, short deck lids and sporty performance oriented design. This class created the decade of muscle cars and their popularity is well noted in the classic car hobby. The Camaro has been produced for 6 generations and although there was a brief hiatus in the 2000's the Camaro returned in 2010 with their retro design that was based on the originals. This 2 owner 1972 Z28 belongs to the second generation which saw a major redesign from their previous generation. These F Body cars have a great look to begin with but this car has been completely redone transforming it into an amazing performance machine. The car has a really aggressive exterior letting you know it means business. Let's just say it, this car is a badass. The Matte Black exterior suits the car perfectly and it has custom dual carbon fiber racing stripes framed in Orange pinstriping. This is a wrap so it could be removed if the newer owner would like to reveal the original Orange paint underneath. The car has been dressed up with a custom hood, carbon fiber bumpers, a custom chin spoiler, rear deck spoiler and carbon fiber mirrors. We see and deal with all sorts of vehicles and have been doing so for years. This is one of those that when looking it over it becomes very apparent how well it was constructed. This isn't a car someone slapped together. It was fully thought out and designed from start to finish resulting in one of the coolest Camaros on the road. The attention to detail is on another level. For example check out the custom black Billet Specialties wheels where the logo on the center cap has been filled in with Orange to match the theme of the rest of the car. That's not the type of stuff you see on your average build. The tires are all new and the car has Detroit Speed tubs to accommodate the larger 335/30ZR18 tires in back.
These cars were meant to be sporty from the factory but this one has been taken to another level incorporating a modern LS7 which is what you would expect to see in newer gen Camaros. The LS7 427 is a Mast Motorsport Black Label motor that features a Whipple Supercharger allowing it to crank out a whopping 900 hp. Those guys don't cut corners and are well known for their quality components. Just a set of heads from Mast can run you around $4K. The supercharger has been nicely modified with custom Orange pinstriping and the entire engine compartment was very cleanly done with custom hood hinges and Orange/Black inner fenders as well. Once again, the details that start to jump out at you the more you look at the car is amazing. On the Hydro boost disc brake calipers and even the master cylinder the CPP logos have been painted Orange. Nothing has been overlooked. To keep it running cool is an oversized Wizard radiator with 3,800 cfm electric fans. The transmission is a 5 speed manual with a triple disc clutch. It has a new heavy duty drive shaft to transfer power back to the 9 inch panhard rear end with Heidts 4 link. It also has adjustable coil overs and the car rides down the road well. Up front it has Pro Touring tubular control arms. Other nice components include the Ricks stainless 20 gallon gas tank with 340 efi pump and completely new PTFE fuel hose lines and fittings.
The interior has been entirely redone with nice Black upholstery. Prior to being installed the interior was completely covered with boom mat sound proofing for sound and temperature control. A lot of times in high performance vehicles you see people pack everything into the drivetrain and ignore the rest. Well that is definitely not the case here because just as much attention was applied to the inside of the car. It has dual high back racing seats with four point RaceQuip harnesses. It has a custom fabricated roll bar and the headliner was also just redone as well. The dash is all new and features Dakota Digital gauges on the dash with an Autometer Temp gauge and Whipple gauge on the pillar. The Vintage AC underdash unit blows cold with no issues and the AM/FM/CD/Aux/Bluetooth stereo is from Alpine. The custom center console incorporates room for additional storage and houses the Hurst shifter with Black boot in a custom carbon fiber frame. The roll bar extends into the trunk where you will find an Optima yellow top battery with cut off switch. The underside of the deck lid is nicely painted Orange as is the area around the hinges.
This very clean custom Camaro is on a whole other level. There is not a weak area anywhere on this car. If you want a muscle car that stands out, this one fits the bill while also providing all the fun and performance you could ask for.
You couldn't come close to replicating this car for only $69,500.00!
