With good old muscle cars slowly disappearing off dealership floors, the Camaro marque had to find a way to stay relevant. When released, the third-generation Chevrolet Camaro was completely changed up and looking back, some would say the Camaro was the poster child of American automotive and the 80s. The third-generation Camaro also saw multiple trims catered to numerous segments, but the one to have was the IROC Z. Equipped with the best powertrains and tweaked design cues to make it stand out, it captured everything that was special in the 80s. Take a look at this 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z, for instance, with just 73,900 miles on the clock; this car is in excellent condition, which is a rare sight these days. What's better? This particular car is a T-top as well.
The third-generation Camaro was a complete refresh on all fronts. The old school muscle car design was no more, and a new, fresh body style to suit the 80s was in fashion. This 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z sports a black exterior and is in excellent condition; a quick peek underneath the car gives you an idea of how good this car really is. The original 5 spoke IROC wheels with IROC center caps in place contribute to its original features. Like the exterior, the grey interior of this 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z is in great shape. All its original interior components are in place with the aftermarket radio being the only modification on the inside.
The oil crisis changed things up for the American car buyer. The importance of having a fuel efficient car was realized and out went the big powerplants. The Chevrolet Camaro also followed suit and offered customers a four-cylinder powertrain option. While this was good for sipping liquid gold, it was nothing compared to a big old American V8. This 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z thankfully sports a mighty 5.7 (350 Ci) V8 engine. When new, this car could push out 230hp, the highest power output in its model year. Power is sent to the car's rear wheels through an automatic gearbox. There are also a few upgrades with the owner reporting new cams, headers, and exhaust to allow that V8 to breathe freely.
