We have got here the legendary L-78 high performance Camaro and this one is indisputably documented by General Motors! It underwent a complete nut and bolt restoration to factory specs. It's a no-frills muscle car and oddly enough the original owner ordered it new with the extremely rare 8-track player!
EXTERIOR: The body is outstanding! It is absolutely straight with no rust at all, it fits real nicely. It's wearing front and rear spoilers. Repainted its original color with no vinyl top: code UU Lemans Blue. The metal flake is laid out evenly and the clear is polished to a very smooth glossy finish. Correctly painted white stripe and black tail panel. All the chrome and trim has been replaced. The glass is all new, weatherstrips were replaced. I love the painted rims with poverty caps, and they are wrapped in reproduction redline tires.
INTERIOR: It's a no-frills interior but believe it or not original owner must have liked his tunes because he ordered it with the extremely rare 8-track player! Otherwise, it's a standard interior that looks like new from the carpet to the headliner.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Chevy lied! The L-78 actually made 425 horsepower, that's 50 more than the advertised 375. It also has a stump pulling 445 lb of torque. They featured a hot solid lifter cam, 11.5:1 compression, square port heads with upsized valves and aluminum high rise intake with a 780 Holley feeding it fuel. The block has correct casting numbers and is dated to this car. All stock components: correct chrome open element air cleaner and chrome valve covers. It even has the correct numbered carb and smog pump assembly. Date coded plug wires, reproduction hoses and clamps, Delco battery topper and spring clamp battery cables. It is detailed like it just rolled off the assembly line. Features include power steering and power brakes.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Impressive! Under the trunk lid and jamb are painted slick. Inside is pristine metal with a neat spatter finish. Painted rim with a never used reproduction redline tire and a restored jack. Latches, wiring, weatherstrip all look new.
UNDERSIDE: This was body off frame restored, all the components were removed. It has immaculate rust-free floors that have been painted semi-gloss black. All these suspension and steering was rebuilt and detailed. The brake system has been completely rebuilt; it has disc in front. Lines, hoses, e-brake cables were replaced. Correct dual exhaust with a transverse muffler. The fuel system was replaced including the tank. Looking up at the motor it is spotless Chevy Orange, the starter looks correct and fresh. It has it's VIN # matching M21 Muncie 4-speed trans, it also looks fresh. Rebuilt drive shaft leads back to its original 12 bolt posi rear with 3.55 gears, it is dated to this car.
SERVICE: This went through our shop for inspection and passed with flying colors.
This is a rare, beautiful Camaro that could be the center piece of anyone's collection. Being a documented L-78 makes it highly collectable!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
