Good start to a $2000 challenge car that my friend is selling.

It is a lot nicer in reality than the pics show, rear quarters are shockingly rust free, if you combined this shell with a rusty but complete northern car you could piece together something pretty nice for not much money.

Is there a way to tell by the VIN or other ID marks?

Nasty28.com has info on identifying Camaros. I went through this when my ex wanted a "1981 Z28 with T-tops, 350 & 4 speed" 

Except they didn't build 350/4spd combo, that year; 305/4spd or 350/auto were the options. 

Anyhow, there should be a stamped plate on the cowl, about 4x5", with VIN, paint codes, engine/trans code, build factory code, and a code identifying it as Z. Without searching, and my memory is fuzzy, I think it is "Z28" 

The fender vents on the car in question are Z28 specific, but fenders are easy to change.

Doesn't really matter if it was originally a Z-28 or not since it's got a salvage title (probably due to the fire) and a "restoration" would cost far more than just buying a 81 Z-28 survivor or restored car. Since the front end burned my guess would be someone installed the Z-28 fenders.


Similar fire damage happened to my son's '79 Z-28 so we gutted it.  I rewired it for horn, lights, ignition, and wipers to be street legal. Then we installed a 454 W/ T-350 combo and complete fiberglass nose. Made a cool street/strip car.

Not a Z28, clean WI title ready to go.  Ad has been updated with better pics.
