1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
The Camaro franchise has certainly been a money maker for Chevrolet for more than 50 years. Beginning in 67 and with just a few model year absences, the Camaro has been a popular staple of the American muscle car landscape. And no Camaro model represents that ideal better than the Z28. By the time 1979 came around there were more Camaros sold that year than any other in history and it was cars like this gorgeous 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 leading the charge. br / br / That Carmine Red paint gives the second-generation F-body a unique look and if youre going to own a performance car from the 70s, this is probably it. Aside from some minor touch-ups that are hardly even noticeable, it looks extremely good and suggests both a lot of money was spent and someone really took care of it. The gaps are exactly the way the factory set them when the car was built and even things like the deep chin spoiler remain in great condition. 1979 was the first year for the Z28 side decals and the silver and gray stripes this car wears are clean decals that really give this Camaro a crisp, clean look. The Zs front spoiler and fender flares also were first introduced in the 79 model run to match the Trans Am styling cues, and these body enhancements helped to further differentiate the Z from its lesser Camaro siblings, the Sport Coupe and Berlinetta. But to be honest, nobodys going to mistake this Camaro for anything / br / The gorgeous Carmine Red interior appears to be 100% original and pretty much as crisp and bright as the day it rolled off the transporter. The bucket seats look almost completely untouched except for a few signs of minor use, but theyre absolute proof that this car was babied. The door panels, carpets, and dash pad present very well too, and thanks to a set of heavy-duty vinyl floor mats, itll continue to look this good for a long while yet. The collection of options isnt vast but plentiful for a car of this vintage, and include an upgrade to modern A/C, rear defogger, and an Alpine AM/FM/Bluetooth/iPod compatible head unit installed in the factory slot. Its been well-cared for its whole life, so the plastic and vinyl is all in great condition and the gauges remain bright and clear behind shiny lenses. Even the trunk still has the original unused space-saver spare and inflator bottle, plus the original / br / Of course, a Z28 is all about performance and the Z was powered by the most potent engine choice available back in the day, a 350 cubic inch V8 producing 175 horsepower. Thats a 40 horsepower bump from the standard engine, which was a pretty big deal in 1979. Its nicely detailed/maintained and mostly stock under the hood, right down to the factory air cleaner. Of course, maintenance items have been replaced to keep it in top health and the 4-barrel carb and HEI ignition ensure reliability. The power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission and 3.73 gears out back make the most of the small blocks power. The undercarriage still sports factory red oxide paint on the pans and is super clean, revealing a fresh H-pipe dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, so it sounds great and may even make a few extra horsepower. This entire 79 road show rolls on stock Z/28 mags with staggered 235/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials. br / br / So, to all of you Class of 79ish graduates wanting to relive those happy days, begin your journey back in time and call today!br/br/
