2020 CHEVROLET CAMARO SEVEN AT BARRETT-JACKSON SCOTTSDALE REVIEW
The existing Camaro 1LE is preferred, but to fully grasp the value of the model designation you have to go back to 1989 when Chevrolet supplied a 1LE trim options group to far better supply the Camaro IROC-Z for SCCA Showroom Stock racing. The 1LE trim wasn’t a specific package but rather was quickly stipulated when a car was purchased with removed air conditioning and the G92 performance axle. More 1LE products integrated performance brakes, an aluminum driveshaft, a baffled fuel tank, and tighter shocks and springs. With only 1,400 miles on the odometer, this 1LE is one of just 62 built in 1990, the second and last year of production, and one of just 34 with a five-speed manual gearbox. It still dons its original Goodyear Eagle car tires and all factory documentation from new is integrated. Some 111 1LE cars were built in 1989 for a grand complete of 173.
We like the metallic green paint about this ’68 Z/28 and the fact that this has a just recently rebuilt, numbers-coordinating 302-cubic-inch V-8 under the hood helps make this one all the more fairly sweet. Paired to a four-speed manual gearbox and wearing period of time-correct Firestone Wide Oval reissue wheels, this Camaro also has its original NCRS transport data statement, statements for the engine rebuild, original Shield-O-Plate and is said to have already been authenticated by model expert Jerry MacNeish.
Supplied new at Dale Chevrolet in Waukesha, Wisconsin, this is mentioned to be an honest-to-goodness COPO Camaro. COPO holds for Central Office Creation Purchase, essentially a special-get program in which merchants could spec special equipment. This Camaro was ordered with a 427-cubic-inch/425-hp Corvette engine, Muncie four-speed manual gearbox, and Posi-traction differential. Barrett-Jackson statements this car was offered a rotisserie recovery to Concours standards, but we’d find it quite challenging to always keep this one mothballed in our ownership.
