|Blue with White Stripes, Blue Vinyl Seats, Front and Rear Seat Belts, 3 Speed Automatic Gearbox and a Wood Rimmed Steering Wheel.|
This car was fitted with a 650 CMF Holley 4 barrel carburetor, Edelbrock performance intake, camshafts and lifters, tubular headers bringing it up to Z28 specification. There is a full stainless steel custom exhaust system with adjustable flaps inside the car. The car is fitted with a full set of chrome Vintique alloy wheels.
It is quite rare for us to have a yank in stock and that is usually because they just don't cut the mustard when you come to give them a close inspection. This car has been in the UK since the mid 70′s the body is in exceptional condition with a very good paint finish. She had an extensive restoration in 2003 which brought the outside back up to spec, but it is the underside which is really impressive. Finished in Red Oxide (as per factory finish) it has never been under sealed and there is no signs of welding or corrosion. The White stripes are painted on and have crisp edges and set the car off a treat. The chrome, windows, lights and other brightwork are all in very good condition being free from scratches or other unsightly marks. Knowing these cars as we do we have been very careful to check the body over thoroughly especially in the rear arches, boot floor and going as far as removing the rear window, an area which is the Camero's Achilles heal.
This car has got the 350 cubic inch (5.7 litre) V8 and was treated to an Edelbrock conversion which we believe brought the car up to Z28 specification. These upgrades included a 650 CMF Holley 4 barrel carburettor, Edelbrock performance intake, camshafts and lifters and tubular headers giving the Camaro circa 330 BHP. The factory performance upgrade sticker can still be found on the slam panel. These were a compulsory addition to confirm the output and emissions in the USA at this time. The engine is very healthy, starting easily and making the 400 mile journey back to base with amazing ease. As with most Camaro's it is mated to GM's 3 speed automatic gearbox which changes positively and kicks down quickly when you poke the throttle.
The interior is a pretty amazing place to be. There is plenty of room for 4 adults and the bucket seats give good support on a long run. There is a rally pack which gives you extra gauges and a rev counter bolted to the top of the dash. The vinyl seats, carpet set and headlining are in good condition as is the rest of the trim.
We have had an extensive test drive of the Camaro having brought it down from Aberdeen. The trip down passed without a hitch using two and a half tanks of petrol at a steady 70 odd all the way. At this sort of speed the Camaro is hardly breaking a sweat and a stab on the throttle proves that there is plenty of performance under the long hood. As with all of our cars we have given the Camaro a thorough inspection and found it to be in very good health. The engine fires from cold easily and keeps an even temperature even when pressing on. On the trip down she did not use any significant amount of oil or water either.
