Chevrolet Camaro 1979 Description

Up for grabs is my newly completed 1979 Z28 with a 763HP Big Block, Stage 3 (1000hp) 4L80E transmission with Overdrive and transbrake, Strange 9" rear, FiTech EFI

Almost everything on the car is new outside of the body. All components were carefully picked out to handle each other 110% with no corners cut. Keep in mind even if the Camaro itself is not your thing, these parts can transfer into YOUR CLASSIC GM PROJECT with little effort and sell out the rest. The body has NO rust. The complete drivetrain has only 250 miles on it and the motor carries a TWO YEAR UNLIMITED MILEAGE WARRANTY!!

The car runs and drives great as is and is VERY STREETABLE unlike a lot of other "street-strip" cars out there that only have 3 speed transmissions, spools etc

Here is an almost complete list of parts-components installed from front to back. Receipts from parts totals alone are upwards of $33-35k, NOT including any labor OR the cost of the car itself...

All braided feed and return lines
Mickey Thompson ET Street SS Drag Radials basically new 250 mi on them
Pypes Race pro Mufflers and X pipe (also have the over axle pipes- see below)

Strange overbuilt 9" rear setup - powdercoated housing,Daytona pinion setup, Detroit truetrac differential, US gear 3.89 ring and pinion, 35 spline axles with access holes drilled, Wilwood street disc brake setup, Caltrac traction bars, Summit leaf springs, Energy suspension shackles, new spring mount plates
Here's the things the car needs to make it a perfect 10 ( because I know I do not want any surprises when I buy a used car, although it's pretty much new)...

Small ding in driver's door needs a little more smoothing out

Car is coated in removable plasti dip at the moment, easily peel it off and it has a nice black finish. It does have a few clear coat swirls and scratches from dust ( I did post a pic of what it looks like under the wrap for reference). I coated it to protect the current finish.
Back plastic decklid panel needs replaced where speakers mount, I had to cut it to fit roll bars $20
X pipe needs a slight bend to raise the mufflers up, because they are so low I can't install the over axle pipes or they sit too close to the rear end.. I can't find a shop locally that can bend 3"... might be easier to just get rid of the X and do simple 3" true duals.
Fuel gauge only starts going down once it reaches 5 gallons left so it does work but I don't think I calibrated it right when I installed it, float needs adjustment
Linkage is there but no wiper motor or blades installed, wiring plug is also there, just add a motor, I did not as it was to only be driven on nice days
Hood needs to be aligned better and a new, stiffer spring on hood release
Steering wheel needs to be centered, I will most likely fix that this weekend, easy fix
So there you have it, all in all a combo worth upwards of $40k... Car turns a low 2200 at 70MPH in overdrive, great on the highway and once broken in should run low 10's even 9.90's with a fatter rear slick or pro bracket radial
I need to get cash out of this so I am pricing for a quick sale due to unforeseen upcoming medical expenses ... Again, if you would like this setup in your Chevelle, Nova etc, just swap it all over! This is a bulletproof street/ strip combo that will take anything you can dish out even if you decide to add a power adder etc..The car alone as a rust free roller should still bring a decent chunk of change. I took the time to put it together but have no more free time to take it back apart so with that said...
Message me with any questions or for my phone contact info if you would like to chat about itThanks!Steve
