12k Mile 1992 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Convertible!

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

With 1992 marking the final year of production of the 3rd Generation Camaro and the 25th Anniversary since the first car rolled off the production line, Chevrolet chose to release a special edition to mark the occasion. The car was basically a cosmetic enhancement and didn’t offer any performance upgrades. It was known as the Heritage Pack, and this 1992 Camaro Z28 Convertible was ordered by its original owner with this option. The vehicle is in excellent condition, with less than 12,000 genuine miles on the clock. The owner has decided to part with the Z28, so he has listed it for sale here at Hemmings. It is located in Saint Clair, Michigan, and the owner has set the sale price at $27,000. Once again, Barn Finder Boot has had the radar working overtime, so thank you so much for referring the Camaro to us, Boot.

The original owner ordered the Camaro wearing Bright Red paint with a Black power top. As you might expect from a vehicle that has done such limited work, it still presents in as-new condition. The paint shows no flaws or issues, the panels appear to be perfectly straight, while the condition of the soft-top is just as impressive. The owner reports no rust problems with the car, and I would’ve been surprised if there were any. The Heritage Pack brought distinctive Black stripes and decals with it, and these show no evidence of deterioration, fading, or shrinkage. The original alloy wheels feature color-keyed highlights, and there are no signs of pitting, oxidization, or staining from brake dust. Adding the perfect finishing touches are integrated fog lights and a rear spoiler with high-mounted brake light.

The Z28 comes equipped with its numbers-matching 5.0-liter TPI V8 that would be producing 230hp. These horses find their way to the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic transmission. By modern standards, vehicle performance probably would be considered to be respectable but not startling. However, incremental improvements throughout the model life of the 3rd Generation Camaro showed that American manufacturers were clawing back some of the performance last during the Malaise Era. The journey down the ¼ mile took 15.1 seconds, while the Camaro could eventually wind its way to 142mph. This Z28 is in as-new condition, which means that it should be able to match those figures. It has a genuine 11,900 miles on the clock, and it appears that the owner holds evidence to verify this.

Maybe the 1992 Camaro couldn’t match the performance figures of the early cars, but when it came to comfort, it was no contest. This Z28 features Red leather upholstery that looks superbly supple and comfortable. There are no signs of wear or problems, while the same is true of the matching carpet. The faux woodgrain is flawless, and the general impression is that slipping behind the wheel would feel like traveling back to 1992. Life on the road is made more bearable by the inclusion of air conditioning, along with power operation for the windows, locks, mirrors, and driver’s seat. When you add cruise control and a CD player into the mix, this Camaro is fairly well appointed.

This 1992 Camaro Z28 Convertible presents superbly and would suit someone searching for a turn-key classic. The Heritage Pack brings no added performance, but it does add something extra to a well-equipped vehicle. The price is right at the top end of what you might pay for a spotless example, but that brings me to an interesting point. When looking at recent sales results for this model, I found a past sale for this car that was completed in October of 2020. At that time, the Camaro is reputed to have sold for $19,250. The photos in both listings are the same, but the locations are different. That could mean that the sale has fallen through, or the Z28 could be a potential flip. What do you think?

    I wish they still put those wood grain bits on today, I thought they added some class, and hid some of the ugly plastic.

    Third gen F-body convertibles do not have power tops. They have a power tonneau cover release. The top itself is manually deployed. I have a 92 Trans Am convertible and they’re very easy to fold/unfold by yourself. Mine is a 5-speed and that manual transmission makes it a lot of fun and the fact that they’re so slow (like everything was back then) serves to keep you out of trouble with the law. GLWTS.
