Why would you own a car which, at the time it was new, was one of the most admired cars on the road, and only drive it 16,015 miles? I don’t know, but it’s going to be nice for whomever picks this one up! This well-preserved survivor is located in Shawnee, Kansas and is up for sale here on eBay, where bidding is well below $3,000 but the reserve hasn’t been met. Thanks to Jim S. for this cool survivor find!
The 1986 Z28 was a shadow of it’s former self, with a 305 V8 moving the F-body along. However, it was attractive for the time and certainly looked the part with lots of scoops (non-functional) and blacked out areas. The ridiculous DOT headlight laws kept the front end from looking as it could have, but even though I’m a Mustang guy I can appreciate GM’s attempt to make the car look nice.
I’m not sure whether the pictures in front of the storage unit are when the car was picked up or where it was stored after being picked up. Either way, the car certainly looks the part of a low-mileage car. The seller tells us the only thing non-original is the battery; that even the tires are original! With power steering, power brakes, T-tops, and a manual transmission the car is equipped quite nicely. I remember these as being smaller inside than I would expect given the exterior size of the car, but I suppose as a collector vehicle that doesn’t matter as much. I don’t think any of you are going to be stuffing family members in the back; I would hope you like them more than that!
The inside looks quite nice, but I’m amazed the seller didn’t use a vacuum on the inside prior to taking pictures. They also haven’t shown much of the interior, none of the underside and none of the engine compartment. That’s a shame, because if these other parts look as nice as the exterior, they would be great selling points. Oh well. Are you interested anyway?
