I’m new to the site so I hope you’ll forgive me if I’m posting in the wrong spot.......

    I have a 1978 Z28 that seems to be fairly rare and in excellent condition. I’m curious what everyone’s thoughts are on “market” value.

    Here are a few of the features.

    - Paint Code 34 (yellow orange)
    - t-tops
    - LT noise reduction interior package
    - Canadian Model
    - TH350 automatic
    - rear defrost
    - power windows
    - factory aluminum wheels
    - 55000 miles
    - ZERO rust. Not even a bubble
    - original paint and decals

    Thanks I’m advance for everyone’s opinion.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The interesting thing with the car I have is the low production numbers considering well over 250,000 camaros were built that year

    - only 2311 with Paint code 34
    - only 9875 with t-tops
    - apparently only 5600 with Canadian Equipment Option?

    To have a combination of the the 3 low production options must make this a unique car. Especially to be in this condition and low miles. I wouldn’t typically think of a late model 2nd gen as a rare car but maybe this one is. Thoughts?

    Nice looking car. 1978 Camaros imported into Canada had the speedos and odometers in Klm. Is that 55000 figure actually kilometres?

    It’s actually 90000km on the Speedo/Odometer. So equates to est 55000miles.
