1984 Camaro Z28: 15,000 KMs


This low-mileage 1984 Camaro Z28 surprisingly isn’t for sale in the great US of A – instead, it has resided with our neighbors to the north and seen extremely limited use since new. Spotted on the Kijiji classifieds by Barn Finds reader Dan S., this unicorn muscle car is in all-original condition and even comes with the original tires. If my math is right, 15,000 kilometers works out to just under 9,500 miles, so this brown on tan Z28 is effectively new in the wrapper. The automatic is a bummer, but I don’t expect it to deter the Camaro enthusiast who will likely pay for the privilege to own such a virgin specimen. We’ve seen a few of these mothballed Camaros show up in recent months – do you think these cars are on the cusp of rising in value, or are the original owners just testing the waters?

    I have been trying to find one of these third generation Iroc Z cars for over a year now.
    Hoping to find early model 1982-85.
    I think the Third generation 1982-92 are the last good looking camaros.
    The cheese wedge fourth generation camaros are hideous.
    The new generation does not appeal to me at all,too bulky looking.

    If you look at the valuation tools on NADA, Hagerty, and such low mileage unmolested third generation Camaros and Firebirds are seeing a steady increase in value. High mileage cars and cars that have been beat to death are not increasing in value because they made so many of these things over a ten year span. Modified cars are not showing an upswing in values any where near the level that original cars are. So if this car is as virgin as it seems and has been maintained it should bring a good price.

    I have two low mileage original Firebird Trans AM’s. One is an 82 WS7 and the other is an 86 WS6. The 82 has 25K miles on it and the 86 has 31K miles.Hagerty Insurance appraised both cars between $12,500.00 and 13,500.00 each based on sales of equal cars over the past year. They also wrote agreed value coverage for both vehicles. While third generation F Body cars are not going to become someone’s retirement nest egg, the cars are starting to stabilize in prices on the lower end of the muscle car market.

    The thing that makes these cars desirable in the modern world of all plastic computerized FWD vehicles is that these cars are a basic RWD midsize with small block Chevy power. Aftermarket support is unlimited for these cars. There are almost no limits on the engine, transmission, and diff combos that will fit in these cars. You can build them into what ever you want it to be. With GM offering crate engines in every configuration, anyone can build a hot rod with hand tools. Hang around the shows some and you will see third generation with big block engines, LS conversions, or what ever your heart desires. I have even seen one with a B4T Cummins diesel.

    Then there are a few owners who elect to keep them stock like this example and the two that I own. Years ago no one paid any attention to the stock thirdgen’s, however now they attract a crowd every where they go. I don’t agree that moth balling any car is a good idea. I believe that a well maintained example with limited use is a better way to preserve any car.

    Multiply by.78 for current exchange rate and add haggle factor. Might be decent value.
