Seller's Notes

For sale at the St. Louis Car Museum is one of the finest 1979 Camaro Z/28 Sport Coupes on the market! This special order muscle car has had only two owners since new, and is documented fully at only 42,543 actual miles. In addition, it is all factory, number's matching including the color combination.A splendid investment in every way and a perfect car to show or drive! About Chevrolet's Camaro Z/28 model: Competing directly with the popular Ford Mustang, the Camaro had been an instant success since its inception in 1967. Once Chevrolet began to identify the performance packages, the Trans Am-inspired Z/28 option was appealing to those who preferred power over comfort. Early on, the Z/28 was not allowed to be mated to anything other than a 4-speed transmission and features, like air conditioning, were not allowed to be attached to the order form. It was a raw option, and definitely not for everyone. As time went on, the Z/28 package was freed to allow an automatic transmission by 1970 and air conditioning hit the option checklist by 1974. Sadly, the Z/28 departed the Chevrolet lineup in 1975. It wasn't until 1977 that the Z/28 would return as its own model, instead of an option. These late 1970's Camaro had become rather sculpted in appearance with the 350ci V8 being the highest output offering in the Camaro lineup. In 1978, the urethane bumpers rounded the exterior body presentation nicely, and a non-functional hood scoop gave the car a sporty presence. Although, you were forced to accept the elaborate exterior Z/28 body decal sticker kit absent the option to order without. Hence in 1979, customers who wanted the top-of-the-line model could ask that the D88 Z/28 Stripe be deleted to give the car a cleaner overall presentation. The original owner of the Camaro offered here jumped at the chance to custom order his Camaro in 1979 exactly as you see here, without any Z/28 stickers hindering the lines. He then kept it in his careful possession for the next 27 years! About Our Available 1979 Camaro Z/28: We are excited to offer for sale a ready to enjoy 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Sport Coupe finished in factory code 19L/19U- Black exterior over a 74R-Carmine Red Vinyl interior! This special, customer ordered example features its original, number's matching 350ci V8 engine and automatic transmission. Additionaly features include air conditioning, power steering, power disc brakes, full rally instrumentation with tachometer, color-matched 15 Z/28 Rally wheels, Goodyear Eagle GT raised white letter radial tires, body side moldings, sport mirrors with driver remote, door edge guards, electronic rear defrost, all Soft-Ray tinted window glass, passenger vanity mirror, carpeted floor mats, and more! As mentioned before, this original owner ordered this example D88- Stripe delete! A truly wonderfully cared for and well-kept example that was delivered new from Ray Catena Chevrolet in Fairlawn, NJ to Anthony Deriso on April 2nd, 1979 of Hackensack, NJ with just 6 miles on the odometer. Mr. Deriso would cherish his Camaro sparingly and later moved to California in March 1999. It would always be garaged, and maintained to collector standards while in his care. The only modifications would include an upgrade from the non-functional style 1979 hood scoop to a later generation 1980 cowl version (original included), a Jensen AM/FM/Cassette audio system, and chromed alternator bracket and valve covers. Mr. Deriso would finally come to sell his treasured Camaro in September 2006 to a local St. Louis resident with just 40,498 original miles on the odometer! This new owner/collector would enjoy this outstanding Camaro Z/28 sparingly during the fair weather driving season offered to us here in the Midwest region. With light use, our available Camaro Z/28 seen here would accrue an average of only 150 miles each year over the next 13 years! This would be the first time that this goregous example has been made availa
