With its sleek, angular, second-generation form carefully outfitted to mirror the upper class Camaros of its day and an energetic small block standing by ready, willing and able, this 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Tribute is a definite impact maker. Its combination of rock solid body, plentiful power and comfortable interior pretty much demands that this Chevy get a close look from any enthusiast who puts high premiums on both curb appeal and driving experience.
Heads will turn just as soon as this '70 is within view and, with a closer peek, onlookers will no doubt admire the attention to detail on display to recreate the magic of the Z/28s of the era. The red paint this Camaro wears is a definite winner - it really amps up the vitality and will regain top form with a simple polishing session at the hands of a pro. Proper Z/28 badging on all four sides provides a fitting nod to its top tier inspiration. Its assortment of exterior chrome is in consistently clean shape - the bumpers both fore and aft as well as the door handles all look new and the stainless steel around the clear glass surrounding the cabin is straight and unblemished. Farther forward, the cowl hood provides just the right aggressive look and the deep black of the front grille offers a great backdrop for the badge at its center.
Inside the doors, the gray interior on this Camaro is very clean - many of its components were replaced during its restoration. A pair of late-model, two-tone bench seats are now at its center - they're well-bolstered for good support during more spirited driving with plenty of comfortable padding, and their included shoulder harnesses offer an extra measure of safety. The rear bench seat looks as if it's hardly been occupied and the matching gray carpeting lining the floor was another add-on during the restoration, so it also appears fresh. A GT Grant steering wheel provides a nice aftermarket touch and the dash panel in front of it still sports its collection of factory gauges, with an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo at its center to handle your audio needs. You and your passengers will ride in comfort, as well as style - the aftermarket air conditioning system is blowing strong and cold on this classic. Raise the sloping deck lid and you'll see a trunk area that's also very solid, with a fresh rubber seal in place to protect against the elements, and a full-size spare inside.
Below the cowl hood is an engine compartment that's seen all the attention needed to be at its best, with a 400 cubic inch V8 resting between inner fenders painted to match the exterior, wearing an Edelbrock aluminum intake pairing and a polished 4-barrel Holley Demon carb on top and a pair of aftermarket headers at its sides to extract maximum output. The engine sits surrounded by braided stainless steel lines and cleanly routed wiring, and a Magna Flow exhaust has been added in back so the powerplant sends a nice, deep note through its tailpipes. Just behind is a 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts with slip-free precision to round out a rock-solid drivetrain. Power brakes featuring discs in front provide low-effort, fade-resistant stopping ability and the power steering is nice and smooth for easy handling. A set of 15” Rally wheels wrapped with Kelly tires completes the look of this eye-catching muscle car.
Its faithfully recreated Z/28 exterior provides outstanding curb appeal, and the eager small block under the hood makes this 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Tribute a blast to drive. Call today!
