“The heartbeat of America is today's Chevrolet.” - Chevrolet advertising tagline, 1995
The Journal of Classic Cars writer continued: “… that's what GM's marketing teams told American buyers when the all-new fourth-generation Camaro launched for model year 1993. Based on the F-body platform, the new Camaro had stayed true to its original 1967 mission as a performance (car) with rear-wheel drive and a 2+2 seating configuration. And what a performance car it was. Although base-model Camaros in 1995 came with a 3.8-liter V6, higher-level models like the Z28 were powered by a 5.7-liter LT1 350cid small-block V8 that was originally introduced in the Corvette in 1992.”
Offered here is a 1995 Camaro Z28 convertible in red over black, under a black fabric top. The car's odometer shows 66,868 miles, or a very conservative 2,600 miles per-year on average. The car's outstanding condition is a result of both this low mileage accumulation and meticulous owner care. The only blemish on its Carfax report is an incident with minor damage to the driver's door that occurred twelve years ago, and has long since been properly repaired.
The car's exterior red paint is uniformly glossy and free of damage of any sort; it is close-to-showroom condition. The color suits the curvaceous Camaro F-body (including the nicely incorporated rear-deck spoiler) as well as the Z28's sporting character. Black headlight “buckets” and lower-front grille, windshield surround, taillight trim, and door handles offer a nice contrast against the bright red. Z28 identification in black on the rear deck and front fenders, together with the red “bowtie” emblems front and rear maintain the color theme. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and free of cracks or signs of abrasion. The black fabric convertible top is likewise free of any sign of damage. Handsomely styled, split-spoke factory alloy wheels with “Chevrolet Camaro”-branded center caps are mounted with Hankook® performance tires.
Inside, the well-bolstered, high-back front bucket seats are upholstered in black leather in an attractive square-pattern design. Twin rear seats echo this design. All the leather is in exceptional condition with only minor creasing on the driver's seat cushion. Cabin carpets are black with matching carpet mats in front for protection. A black steering wheel with finger controls and airbag frames analog instrumentation including a 5000-rpm-redline tachometer and 150-mph speedometer, flanked by smaller vehicle and engine-monitoring gauges. The black dashboard curves into the center console with HVAC controls above the factory AM/FM/cd audio system. The remainder of the console includes the automatic-transmission shifter ahead of a combination armrest-and-storage box. The “boot” for the convertible-top storage is black hard plastic, again free of wear or damage.
Under the hood, the 5.7-liter Chevrolet LT1 V8 carries on the near-showroom-condition presentation: clean and free of wear indications. There are no modifications, and all components are properly installed; all wiring and hoses are properly routed. Factory information and warning stickers remain in place. Viewed from below, the chassis is free of damage, clean, and well-ordered; all components appear properly installed. There are no signs of the sort of wear that might be the case if the car had been too aggressively driven or tracked.
The owner's manual accompanies the car.

There are those who say if you want to really experience “the Heartbeat of America,” there's no better place than the driver's seat in a drop-top Z28, music turned up, and open road ahead. If you managed to miss out on that automotive treat, well, here's one more chance to grab hold of it.
