  Lot 20
 

1989 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible IROC-Z Z28

Estimated at £12,000 - £15,000

Lot details

Registration No: F220 TOY
Chassis No: 1G1FP31E7KL119286
MOT: June 2025

  • Desirable IROC version of the second-generation Camaro Z28
  • A resident of the United Kingdom since 1997
  • 305ci (5 litre) V8 engine with automatic transmission
  • Current ownership since 1999 and only three keepers in the UK

Styled by Gerry Palmer, the third-generation Chevrolet Camaro began production on October 12th 1981. Named Motor Trend magazine’s ‘Car of the Year’ for 1982, the 2+2-seater was considerably lighter, better handling and more aerodynamic than its predecessor. Available in four-cylinder, V6 and V8 guises, the latter proved the most popular.

Manufactured in 1989, this particular Camaro is understood to have been supplied new to mainland Europe, residing there for eight years before being imported to the UK. A desirable IROC-Z variant, its build specification featured an upgraded suspension, lowered ride height, specially valved Delco-Bilstein shocks, larger diameter sway bars, a steering/frame brace known as the "wonder bar", and a special decal package. Fitted with the 305ci (5 litre) V8 engine allied to automatic transmission, ‘F220 TOY’ is finished in Red with Red and Black leather upholstery, and has a manual soft-top. The present odometer reading of 168,000 kilometres (equivalent of c.104,000 miles) is believed but not warranted to be genuine. Entering the current (third UK) ownership twenty-five years ago, the Chevrolet has been sparingly used. Rare and characterful, this striking Camaro is offered for sale with invoices for work completed, a no advisory MOT certificate until June next year, and a current V5C document.
