After seaching for awhile for a decent camaro to play with I found one. 1978 Z28, Has all the correct exterior components..hood, fenders, wheels and interior badges, gauges but now having doubts its a real Z, also has T-tops but trim tag says hard top. Was the t top code on the trim tag? other wise im happy with he car, minimal rust interior great shape, built 400 small block.. According to trim tag built in Norwood, I payed $9000
Damn, I didn't know that. I've heard of 3rd gen Z28s having a 305, but not any 2nd gens. I suppose it was a sign of the times.
Where can you get the copies? Do you have link you can point us to? Even though I found all three of my build sheets the one under the back seat was half eaten by mice, the one sandwiched under the gas tank was ruined by the tar insulator strip that runs between the trunk and the tank and the one under my driver seat was shredded and had pieces missing as they stuck it between the seat wires and the seat foam. It tells me enough that it is a Z28, but its not complete.Why would anyone fudge a 78 Z?Are they really that scarce?That being said it sure does look like someone took a punch to the trim tag.You can still get a copy of the build sheet,or I did for my 81 anyway.$50 bucks I think?
Yes, but it would still be like watching paint dry as they were both slower than a one legged cat burying terds on a frozen pond.I've been wondering about that-350 auto 3.08 vs 305 4 speed 3.42.I'll bet the 305 would give the 350 a good run for the money,ESPECIALLY if the 305 car was lightly optioned,IE no air or T-tops.165 HP for the 305 vs 175 HP for the 350,about 20 FT LBS difference.
It might be entertaining from a curiosity standpoint. It's just a shame what had to be done to the later 2nd gens and other cars at that time. And now we have four- and six-cylinder cars that would smoke any factory 2nd gen.165 HP for the 305 vs 175 HP for the 350,about 20 FT LBS difference.
