1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
Starting in 1990, aerodynamic designs returned to the automotive landscape, replacing the angular shapes that dominated the 1980's. The Chevrolet Camaro received a welcome redesign that modernized the brand in 1993 retiring the 11-year-old third generation Camaro.
For consignment, an example of the technological breakthroughs brought over into the design of this new generation Camaro, in Z28/SS form, nonetheless. A very clean Carfax report, several new parts, a repaint in 2009 all bring this car up to a fresh start for the next owner.
Part of the breakthrough difference that distinguishes this car from the previous generation are the use of composite plastic in the construction of the doors, front fenders, and trunk. Steel remains only in the rear quarters, and the hood. All panels are covered with Black, which was repainted in 2009 and remains in good condition. An aerodynamic hood with the obligatory SS scoop melts back into the 68 degree raked back windshield then is interrupted by a smoked glass "T" top roof of which can easily be removed and stored in the rear cargo area. Very clean chrome coated 5 spoke wheels are noted on all 4 corners and as a bonus the original SS wheels are included.
Keeping within the black theme we can see tuck and roll leather buckets up front and a rear bench. Both the passenger's seat and rear bench show minor wear and what can almost be called loose material as denoted by the excess folds. The driver's seat has taken the brunt of the use and shows age wear, minor staining, and notable wear on the left side upper bolster. Recently installed graphite colored carpet covers the floors and is protected by Camaro SS carpeted floor mats in the front. A white knobbed floor manual 6-speed shifter is seen within reach of the driver in the center console and a plaque denoting this car at #2131 of the Camaro Z28/SS cars built is attached for all to see. This car comes with power locks, power windows, power mirrors, white face analog gauges, an aftermarket JVC AM/FM/CD player, and air conditioning to give you all the creature comforts you could want.
A powerful 350ci LT-1 fuel injected 305hp V8 sits rearward in the engine bay, for more weight balance. A T56 6-speed manual transmission is installed which sends power back to the 3.42 Posi Traction geared 10-bolt rear axle.
Underneath remains very clean, with a structurally sound unibody, 4-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, independent front suspension, and a torque arm with coil spring rear suspension. We note a Flowmaster muffler and dual chrome tail pipes for that true muscle car sound. Also, there is a severe tear in the passengers rear unibody, most likely from being winched onto a trailer or rollback.
A quick starter and off to the test track. Here it shows every bit of that extra hp with neck snapping acceleration, rail like handling, and super smooth cruising. When you need a panic stop brakes are totally bias free and work very well. All functions were performing as they should on this Z28/SS Camaro save for the air conditioning, (our consignor states this is due to a bad compressor), and a check engine light due to no catalytic converters.
Overall, a good example of the Z28/SS Camaro. Great color combination, clean Carfax and powerful engine. This 1st year modern Z28/SS is ripe for the picking. Let's do some doughnuts in the parking lot to celebrate!!
