A bright red style, even brighter wheels, a feature-filled interior, and upgraded V8 power are all about making this 1979 Chevrolet Camaro a distinct classic with a cool cruising attitude.

This was the debut year for the Berlinetta trim line. It was about taking a more luxurious and personal approach to the Camaro. It wasn't a coddler, but it also wasn't as boisterous as the Z/28. This one continues that legacy even with its upgrades. For example, the red paint is bright and vibrant, but it's also not so over-the-top that you'll worry if the finish sees dust or rain. The hood shows off clean lines without any scoops and that works well with the crisp sheet metal that runs the full profile. In the rear, they couldn't resist the added flair of the Z/28-style three-piece spoiler, because after all, it looks awesome. But where the Z-cars had a dark front end, this has a bright grille and even brighter headlight bezels. It puts a nice face forward and goes well with the upgraded 18-inch US Mags wheels.

The black interior looks great against the exterior red. It's well presented on the dash, carpets, headliner, and seats. This classic shows its level of Berlinetta comfort with nice classic features like factory air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo with an 8-track player. The sporty NK4 steering wheel, armrest center console, and full gauge package - including tach - remind you that this Camaro is a true driver's car.

This was born a V8 car, but what's under the hood right now is younger, larger, and more powerful. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been enhanced with an Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock performance intake, and a newer dual exhaust. It's a solid powerhouse that makes for quite an attractive all-around cruiser. That's because you also have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and grippy modern sport tires afforded by the wheel upgrade.

This Camaro was born to be a premium cruiser, and so it's great to see it uphold that legacy today with the right mix of vintage and upgrades. Call today!!!
