Nice Camaro! As for value I think it all depends on if you found a buyer who really wanted it.
Having original paint isn’t necessarily a good thing. But all being said I bet you can get 12-15k for it depending on its overall condition.
You'd get more $ if it was a 4-speed.
Nice car I hope you get a good price. Looks really original from the pic's.
I had the same car but without T-Tops and was a 4 speed. The paint code is what makes it so rare as it was a one per dealer only car. My understanding was it was only offered to certain high volume GM dealers. It was also the brochure car for 78. I have the original brochure if you are interested. I sold my car as it was a little too far gone but I kick myself regularly for not just putting it in storage and doing a complete restore down the road.
I was ordering these Z's new as a direct sale being a GM Salaried employee and could order any color I wanted so I don't believe only 1 was only offered per Dealership.
To be honest I’m not sure where I heard that. Could be that the limited number produced coincidentally averaged out to the number of dealers at the time. Seems odd that the cover car on GM’s brochure was such a limited production number but again back then the cars were a lot more made to order so it could be it was just an unpopular colour.
I was going to say around $15k too based on the current ads that I see. It could be worth more for all I know.
Good point. It’s a nasty yellow/orange but it’s very retro for the era so it’s kinda cool too. It’s really cool that it was also the colour used in the z28 ads for that year. Does anyone know of a resource that could validate if this color was a promo / special dealer option or just an unpopular color?
My brother in law calls it traffic light yellow. He's not wrong...
