800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Here's a great way to get a speedy classic that is gaining major popularity, on a budget. This 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z/28 convertible almost looks stock from the outside, but keen eyes will start to pick up on the subtle touches that suggest this is a modified beast within.
It's hard to find a more desirable 1980s machine than an IROC Z/28 Camaro. Either you had one, or envied one at some time in your life, and just like Ray-Ban Aviators, these never went out of style. There was just something about the sharp-edge styling and ground effects that made these the kings of the boulevards in the '80s. It only gets better with a rare ragtop (only 744 droptop Zs in '87) that lets you go for a wind-in-your-hair cruise whenever you desire. And Camaro fans know that 1987 is a special year because it's not only the first year for the 3th gen convertibles, but also it's the 20th anniversary of the Camaro badge. This car celebrates its history perfectly by living up to its Bright Red paint namesake. Since we suspect most of the paintwork is original, it isn't perfect but that just means you can enjoy this car even more without worrying about every rock that is kicked up inevitably by a different vehicle on the highway or canyon blast you enjoy with the top down. Plus, the black stripes are a great complementing piece to the headlight surrounds, hood slats, and black cloth folding roof. Like any good American classic, there is always room for brightwork. In this instance it's reserved for the shining Z06 Corvette-style wheels that indicate this sweet little ride has some more secrets it will happily share with the new owner.
The black exterior accents also do a great job of coordinating with the black interior. In fact, it feels like the colors have swapped as a deep, dark finish dominates the interior with bright accents keeping it colorful and flashy, especially when that top is down. Just like the outside, there has been a lot of care to keep the inside looking amazing also. These cars struck the perfect balance between comfort and performance. You feel it the moment you slip into the high-back bucket seats which have custom covers that match the back, and your right arm fall perfectly onto the center console. The original AM/FM/cassette stereo and heat/defrost controls are all within an easy reach of here. You get the comfort of an updated Chevy steering wheel, and beyond that is a full gauge panel including a large speedo and tach.
All you need is one quick peek under the hood to know that is something very special in the engine bay. Camaro fans would have to wait until the 4th generation to get the Corvette's LT1 as an option, but this special Z/28 is re-writing its history. Now with the more powerful electronic fuel-injected 350ci C4 motor, this Camaro has over 33% more power than what the factory could install in '87. On the road the extra power is put to good use thanks to the total control provided by the IROC-Z's package that came with four-wheel disc brakes and a limited slip rear end. But there is more to this package than just high-speed fun. It has high speed cruising in mind with the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. So, this added-power classic is also easy to take on the long haul.
A total package that's beautifully presented, and has a healthy power upgrade makes this Z/28 convertible very desirable. And the affordable price on this rare rocket means you have to hurry if you want it to be yours. Call now!!
