1971 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Tribute Additional Info:

Perhaps you remember the last car like this recently restored 1971 Camaro Z/28 we featured, or maybe not, because it sold in about three days. While they may be lagging behind their first-generation siblings, these '70s Camaros are hot properties, especially when they look this good and run this well, and with a high-visibility look, this one definitely won't get overlooked.The pro-touring treatment works especially well on second-generation F-bodies, accentuating their long, lean lines and building on what was already a pretty good platform for going around corners. This one isn't a real Z/28, but it's definitely got a nasty look. A few tasteful modifications, mostly the custom hood and the RS-style grille treatment, give it a clean look, but you won't be sneaking around in this Camaro. The bright orange paint is expertly applied, with a brilliant shine and great panel gaps that give it a modern look despite being more than 40 years old now. Charcoal gray metallic stripes wrap around the hood and give it a very trick, modern look and the effect continues out back, wrapping around the ducktail spoiler. Reproduction Z/28 badges and bright chrome bumpers add detailing that stands out against the spectacular paint job and with that perfect stance, it looks fast just sitting still.When you're building a custom, it's critical to blend the old and new seamlessly, so this Camaro offers a nicely restored interior with a few smart upgrades. The deeply bolstered buckets are original equipment that still look awesome, and there are fresh black carpets on the floor. It's possible that the door panels are original, and if so, they're remarkably nice, and the center console offers factory good looks with a horseshoe shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission underneath. The original instrument panel is full of good-looking factory instruments, including a tach, and they offer a complete view of the engine up front. Modern A/C components power the original system, so it looks stock but works far better, and in the center of the dash you'll find an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that sounds fantastic. In back, the trunk is neatly outfitted with a reproduction mat that fits well and looks right.The freshly detailed engine bay continues the car's OEM-plus look, combining a Chevy Orange engine block with plenty of polished chrome accents. The crate 350 cubic inch V8 is a potent piece thanks to an Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carb up top, a slightly upgraded camshaft, and a pair of high-flow heads, all installed about 7500 miles ago. Finned valve covers are a familiar Z/28 look and there's a bright chrome radiator shroud to brighten the place up. A set of long-tube headers dump into a new Flowmaster exhaust system, so this car sounds as potent as it looks. The 10-bolt rear end is full of 3.73 gears, so with the upgraded engine and a bunch of gear, this sucker just lunges off the line. The underside is in good order, although not detailed for show, and there are Corvette-spec discs at all four corners. Those cool Boss Motorsports wheels complete the look with 235/40/18 front and giant 275/35/18 rear performance radials.Don't make the mistake of assuming that this Z/28 will be around next week when you decide to finally call. If you see something you like, don't miss out. This one won't last long, either, so call today!
