1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

The Chevrolet Camaro, manufactured by Chevrolet, was hardly a new idea; more like a hurried attempt to keep up with the recently launched/remarkably successful Ford Mustang. It started as a pony car, but Chevrolet later introduced muscle car versions in the market. Launched on September 29, 1966, the Camaro comes in five distinct generations, with the last one being introduced on March 16, 2009.

This pristine example of a fourth generation Camaro has only a mere 63,520 consignor stated original miles clocked! A non “T” top model, spicy red exterior and charcoal and gray interior combination, and a hefty 8-cylinder LT1 Chevrolet engine, combine to make beautiful speed from this clean Autocheck Vehicle History Report Z28 right out of 1996. Used by our consignor as a spare show car, winning 2 trophies, it's time to pass the flamed torch on as space is at a premium in our consignors stable. Will you be the next owner of this peppery Mustang muncher?

This version of the sporty Camaro is bathed in spicy Cayenne Red Metallic and has straight steel with well minded gaps throughout. A neatly shaped front still retaining the throwback look from the originals but with a much more aero twist. No chrome, just the Cayenne Red and some black accenting around the grille and headlights. Leaded back to the heavily raked windshield is a carbon fiber wrapped hood with peppery scoops left in the original red. T-tops were not optioned on the roof of this Z so we see a gloss black roof in their place. The B pillars are also in black. Just behind them is a nicely curved and long sloping greenhouse glass that leads us right up to the rear spoiler which neatly curves with the rear deck, and melts into the quarter panels. On back a rounded tail with seamless taillights with the C A M A R O badge embossed in the center of this rear panel. Snazzy saw blade style alloy wheels are now on all 4 corners and wrapped with like new rubber. The Cayenne Red Metallic paint is all looking very deep with very few faults. Someone call for backup....we have a 3 alarmer here!

A swing of the charcoal paneled sporty looking doors and we note plenty of aero molded plastic and vinyl mixing with some suede broadcloth and carpeting, a pull and some power function buttons, and we are anxious to slip inside. Doing so we slip into nicely shaped high back buckets that sport heavily padded bolsters throughout. These are covered in two tone gray and charcoal broadcloth and are looking not often used. In back a bench which is basically 2 more buckets split apart by the long hump making its way rearward. These are in excellent condition as well. More beautifully molded and sculpted vinyl for the center console and dash which both make use of the undulating line where nothing is squared off, (gosh I'm glad the 80's styling is gone!). All clean and good looking for the dash, instruments and charcoal carpeting flooding the floors.

A 350ci LT1 fuel injected V8 rated at 285hp, is backed by a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission. A 10-bolt rear axle with 3.42 gearing helps set the power in motion and leaves a stinging sensation on its competitors. Keeping the occupants cool is a new A/C compressor and dryer

A light peppering of surface rust is seen on a few cast suspension parts, but all unremarkable. Otherwise, stamped steel floor pans and rockers with some light patina from age but no rust on these items. Independent front suspension, and a torque arm with coil springs are in back to provide the ride. Power disc brakes are all around, and a clean single exhaust system with dual outlets gives this engine plenty of pipe to exhale freely.

This car fired right up and on the test track performed as expected, with all functions working. Having driven many a Camaro here at Classic Auto Mall, I'd have to say I did notice this one definitely provided a bite and a burning that others have failed to duplicate. Let's just say that this Camaro comes packed with hot haste!

A back up show car, carefully taken care of then safely put away until the next outing. A powerful LT1 V8, faux carbon fiber, a clean interior, the important Z28 RPO code, a consignor stated 64K original miles all work together to put the peppery Camaro high up on the Classic Auto Mall Scoville Unit chart.
