1 of 3,761: 1988 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

I often feel like convertibles get dinged on overall value because they don’t look as good as the hardtop version. There’s usually some awkwardness tied to how the soft top stows underneath the tonneau cover, which looks bulky and kills the side profile view. Not so with the third-generation Chevrolet Camaro, which has to be one of the most attractive chop-top conversions ever sold by the factory. Check out this rare IROC-Z convertible here on eBay with bids to $12,500 and no reserve.

The listing for this Camaro ends this evening, so best get your bids in soon if a Camaro like this is on your radar. The color scheme on this example is terrific and has to be somewhat rare; I can’t recall seeing gray with red striping all that often. The seller notes it is a respray of the original “Gunmetal Gray” factory paint and it looks like the details are correct with the factory decals and pinstripe back where they should be.

The seller notes this is 1 of 3,761 convertibles made, a figure I certainly believe given how infrequently these pop up for sale. The interior is in excellent condition as well, but I’m not sure if that’s an OEM upholstery pattern. If it is, it has to be a rare option having the “Z28” moniker sewn into the seat backs. The rest of the details look good as well, with clean plastics and no evidence of rampant sun fading, which can certainly happen with convertible models.

The dash isn’t cracked and the carpets are very clean. This example has 61,000 miles listed, so it hasn’t seen a ton of use. The seller notes it is powered by a supposedly healthy 5.0L V8 with fuel injection, and is (obviously) paired to the optional automatic transmission. Finding three pedals in this era of Camaro isn’t necessarily easy, and I’d expect it’s near impossible in a convertible. This is a very nicely presented example of a rare variant of the third-generation Camaro, and I wouldn’t be surprised with a final bid of over $15,000.

    It seems as though I’ve seen this car before. Maybe there’s a glitch in the Matrix.

    Very very nice. The steering wheel might need a bit of leather conditioner and cleaning but aside that wow applies. Now the other question is t.b.i. or t.p.i. i’m guessing t.b.i.

      Its an iroc. They’re all TPI of that vintage. You’d have to go down a trim level to the RS to see the TBI

      Yes. The staff must have gone fishing this weekend and left the machines on.
