1979 Chevrolet Camaro Restored Z28
Why Is This Car Special
The second-generation Chevrolet Camaro was produced by Chevrolet from 1970 through the 1981 model years. It was introduced in the spring of 1970. Sales for 1979 were the highest ever for any generation Camaro before or since, numbering 282,571 units.
GM engineers have said the second generation is much more of “A Driver’s Car” than its predecessor. The 1979 Black with gold stipes Chevrolet Camaro Z28 we have here at Skyway Classics is a great example of that.

Under the hood is the 350 cubic inch small block Chevrolet V8 engine rated at 255 horsepower as noted by the L code in the VIN#. This one runs and sounds great with the dual exhaust system running out the back.
The motor sits in a clean engine compartment and features a factory black chrome air cleaner attached to a ram air hose and front facing scoop, blue painted engine block, heads, and intake, power steering, air conditioning, power disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear, factory exhaust manifolds, and it is mated to the 4-speed manual transmission and H.D. 10-bolt rear end with the chassis as clean and detailed as the engine compartment, while it rides on factory factory Z28 wheels (each wheel individually restored) and BF Goodrich Radial TA raised white letter performance tires.
As part of the restoration, the entire interior has that new look starting with the twin front bucket seats and matching rear seat, center console with the 4-peed shifter and white shifter ball, aftermarket stereo radio system, power windows, air conditioning, tilt wheel, factory gauges in the slick dash, and black carpets.
The Z28 has a fresh coat of slick black paint that really shines, flowing over the body panels which are straight, scooped Z28 hood, and rear spoiler, with the “Z28” stripes and decals that ran from the beginning of the front flares to the bottoms of the doors.
It has a front spoiler and fender flares much like its Pontiac Trans Am twin had and the rest of the fit and finish is great as well.
The sounds coming out the dual exhaust finish the appearance and attitude of our Z28.
