1977 Z28 Camaro-FS/FT $4500
Willing to do $3500 and you drive the car home if I keep the title until you come up with $500 if I can get the $3500 before April 1st.
Iím ready to sale or trade my 1977 Z28 Camaro. Iíll try to outline the information of this car to the best of my abilities, but if you have any questions you can email me or contact me through phone. Before I purchased this car I
spent about a year and a half researching, examining, and hunting for the best car I could find. I saw piles of rust, hundreds of layers of paint, about 50 wrecked cars, and then I saw this one. This car had a decent sized dent in the
driver's rear quarter, small amounts of rust near the lower fender area, but If you looked at it now you could never tell it was there. This was my first car. I've taken extremely good care of this car and if you take the time to look
at it you'll see the care that went into it.
A General History
The Z28 model of the Camaro was discontinued for the 1975 and 1976 models. It wasnít scheduled to be released in 1977, but due to the high sales of Pontiacís Trans Am the Z28 was reintroduced to buyerís halfway through the
production year. This midway release is why itís often referred to as the 1977 Ĺ Z28 Camaro.
History of This Car
The following information is derived from the vehicleís original build sheet. The original build sheet for this car is owned and laminated for preservation. It was pulled from behind the rear seat of the vehicle in late 2010 so it isnít
perfect, but in my experience with these vehicles itís the best in-vehicle build sheet Iíve seen and will be depicted further down the page. This particular Camaro was built in Van Nuys, California, but shipped to and sold at Bass
Chevrolet Inc. in Longview, Texas. It went to the body shop for two special builds. It does include the special Z28 code and the XXX Custom Order title. This Z28 started as a white car with 91A RED/BLK Stripe kit. I believe this
car was previously owned by a man named Mark, or Marcus, Crow of Gilmer, Texas. His Provisional Operators License that expired in 1977 was found tucked under the dash. This license, build sheet, and other available historical
and informational items are included with the purchase of the vehicle.
The body is by far the most rust free body I've seen on these cars, especially after we got into the body work. There was rust in the quarters and lower areas of the fenders, but all was patched. The driver's side rear quarter was
damaged at some point, but you can't tell that anymore because of the body work we've done. The entire car sits in primer right now. There's a small spot on the lower valence that needs primer and a small area near the rear
bumper. All bumpers have the rubber. I have all four of the rear wheels shown as well as all four Z28 wheels shown on the front of the car. The rear wheels are chromed and I'm not sure the brand. The Z28 wheels are the
original 15" wheels used on The 1970-1974 and 1977-1981 Z28 cars. I don't have the beauty rings, but I can give you links to all the big Camaro parts websites and they'll send you a parts magazine. The driver's side door handle
is cracked, but it costs $13.95 at Autozone for a replacement.
Under The Hood
Here's where we get to the good stuff. This isn't a little V6 or even a 305 SBC. This is a 350 that's been bored .30 over making it a 355 SBC. It has a mild cam in it. It has headers that dump at 45 degrees just past the rear
passenger compartment. It's running a Rochester Quadrajet that was rebuilt in January of 2012. This Rochester is absolutely amazing. It feeds enough power to make the tire's spin when going from 1st to 2nd, and even going
2nd to 3rd. This thing will go from 0mph to 105mph in well under 10 seconds. When the secondaries open up on that carbeurator it sucks you into the seat. It has a 3 speed automatic transmission, a 342 ratio axle, and power
brakes and steering. It has air shocks in the rear. The air shocks are operated the same way a tire is, you air it up and the rear end lifts up, you let air out and the rear end sinks down. All engine gaskets from head gaskets up
were replaced in early 2011. Power steering pump was also replaced around this time. The distributor is HEI, and the spark plugs and wires were replaced in the middle of last year.
The interior started out black, but I put new carpet in it from Classic Industries that was a baby blue, but was dyed to look like a blue-grey color. I still have the black carpet, but took it out because of a scuff near the kick pad
The car has custom bucket seats that are very sturdy. I took them out when I stripped the interior to check for rust(no rust found anywhere!). The driver's side seat has a small hole on the side closest to the door, but if you took
the time it could be patched easily. The rear lower passenger seat panel had a thread come out of a seam so it can be sewn back together easily. The rear back passenger seat panel has a rip at the top where the seat meets the
package tray. The package tray is in excellent condition as well as all interior panels. Sun visors work great. No sagging, rips, or burns on the ceiling of the car. The dash is slightly warped, but is in better condition than any other
original dash I've seen. All panel lights work. It has an aftermarket B&M Shifter. Center console is in working condition. Has a new radio and new 6x9 speakers in the car. Sound system sounds great when you're working on it, or
with the windows rolled up, but because it has headers it gets a bit noisy with the windows down.
