My mother’s husband has asked me to sell his 1974 Camaro LT Z28. In many ways this car remains as he bought it when new. with just over 2300 miles on the car. Read on for this car’s story. The car was bought new. and with 98 miles on it a built engine install was started. And then he got interested in duck hunting. The car remained under cover for 35 years with a 400 block ready for intake/exhaust finishing. The original 350 is wrapped in plastic and on the stand it was mounted to 40 years ago. After much goading he had the car finished a few years ago. with the work completed by Camaro Specialties in East Aurora. NY. Current setup is a 4-bolt 400 block bored . 030 over with a 350 forged crank ending up as a 377. mated to the original Borg Warner close ratio Super T10 and a 3. 73 posi rear. Angled plug heads. 10. 5:1 pistons. Crane Zip 510 cam. solid lifters. Norris stainless adjustable rockers. Jamar stud girdle. Edelbrock Victor Jr. manifold. Holley 750 double pumper. Hooker headers and Flowmaster mufflers. original wheels with BFG’s. Other changes include stiffer front springs. adjustable shocks. and solid body mount bushings. The exterior and interior are as delivered new with the exception that the sub-frames and firewall have been painted black Imron. Otherwise. never painted. no factory blemishes have been corrected. the glass is original. the electric windows operate properly. and the headliner is original. All removed original parts are packed and included (engine. springs. bushings. etc). Also included are the 1974 Camaro Brochure. original window sticker. Owner’s Manual. Maintenance booklet. Service Manual. Overhaul Manual. and Fisher Body Service Manual. Additional literature included are a ’73-’74 Chevelle / Nova / Camaro parts catalog. a ’75 overhaul manual. and for ’70 Camaro a Service Manual. Overhaul Manual. Chassis Service and Overhaul Supplement. Fisher Body Service Manual. and Fisher Body “F” Service Manual. Nearing 80 years of age has prompted the sale of the car. Located outside Buffalo. NY. the car is available for viewing by appointment. It has been driven to a few shine and show events the past few summers. but otherwise is not driven much except for the occasional ice cream cone. Feel free to call Camaro Specialties and ask about the car. I recall a comment that they had their Carlisle judge friends come see the car so they could “recalibrate” their benchmark. On Apr-13-15 at 20:19:40 PDT. seller added the following information:A minor correction per the owner. Tom; the headliner was replaced by Camaro Specialties after the original became unglued. The original is provided with the car. Additional information; the crank is a custom forged 400 crank by Hank The Crank in CA. cut for a 350 stroke to get to 377 cu in. A 350 crank proved to require shimming the bearings in the 400 block. which never resulted in the tolerances desired so the custom crank was ordered. The 350 crank originally tried is provided with the car. To answer a question asked; the car has never been painted. touched up. or revised from as delivered new. The car has it's full and intact factory paint job with no issues. No winter. no snow. no rain - always kept covered in a garage and driven in perfect weather. but with a 40 year break between delivery and completion. My involvement started about 20 years ago when my mother and the Tom were getting married. I saw a covered car in his third garage bay and inquired. He beckoned. I rolled the cover off what was clearly a Camaro/Firebird shape not prepared for what was underneath. The front clip was off. the frame rails and firewall had fresh black Imron. and a short block in a cool dark mustard yellow color sat with machined blanking plates over all ports. I kept rolling the cover back and saw that it was a Camaro. I opened the door and it just slid open without dropping the inch that every Camaro I had ever opened had done. I think I opened and closed the door four or five times just to see it stay aligned and click shut quietly. I sat inside and commented on the quality of the interior work. and then I saw the odometer at 00098. I said. "You got the interior to look this fresh after 100. 98 miles?". Tom said. "Nope. it never turned over". "Are you telling me this car has under a hundred miles and has sat on these jack stands since then???". "Yup. I got into duck hunting and never looked back". It took another 15 years of goading to get Tom to finish the car.
