Here is a video of another barn find, but now this time, one guy stumbled upon a Chevy Camaro Z28! An American muscle car, this is the highest selling Chevy Camaro Z28 of any generation, selling over 280,000 units! The camaro z28 shown in this video has been sitting in a barn for 21 years, and it was time to take it out of it to see if it still runs. It can clearly be seen that it has lots of dust on it, and it doesn’t look to be in a very good shape. The original hood has been replaced as well. However, on the inside, it doesn’t look as bad as one would think.
For a car that has been sitting inside a barn for so long, everything seems to be preserved quite nicely. After finding the keys inside the car, it was time to see if it can still run. Luckily for the owner, the 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28 started! Not only that, the engine purr was like music to our ears! It has a 454 Chevy big block engine inside it, and it sounds ridiculously nice! Starting the 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28 after 21 years spent in the barn just further proves that Americans make high quality cars. It is still nice to see this stunningly beautiful car roaring. We hope to see it on the road soon! Until that moment arrives, we will leave this video up so all of you can enjoy the beauty of the 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28.
Specifications Of Chevy Camaro Z28
In 1979 you could virtually get a Chevrolet Camaro Z28 in the Camaro’s LT or Rally Sport package, but without the Camaro Z28 name. ’75 models could be optioned with 350 4-barrel engines and 4-speeds. They had positraction rear ends and the famous F-41 sport suspension. Good for getting them off the line and around corners in a hurry (as long as it was dry), but they did not declare Chevy Camaro Z28 anywhere on them. Last trivial factoid, then on to the feature car I am dreaming about this month. I would have to go back to the original paint and get the bold Chevy Camaro Z28 stripes that came with the appearance package that year. Style points for the three fat stripes leading to large Chevy Camaro lettering smack dab in the center of the hood.
I also love the fender emblems from that era, so I would keep them. For power, a Z/28 deserves a lot of it, I would have to declare a hot small block with a lumpy cam and a deep, deep tone exhaust.
