Don''t look now, but this 1987 IROC is an icon, and a collectable one at that. If you grew up in the ''80s, this was the car to beat on the street, with an awesome combination of traditional muscle car acceleration and impressive handling. Recently repainted, it looks quite authentic in the original Bright Blue, which has a very correct-appearing patina. As a T-top car it fits together well and doesn''t have the usual bumps and bruises that you''d expect. That''s all proof that this car has led an easy life, unlike so many of its siblings which were often victims of their low price and high performance. The ground effects remain in good shape with minimal road rash, and it still carries its original fog lamps up front. Seriously, if you''re familiar with these cars, you know their fate but this one seems to have escaped and instead is on its way to being a legitimate collector''s item. Things like the taillights, the weather seals, and even the black inserts on the hood remain bright, crisp, and clear. With power leather seats, this Camaro is a lot more upscale than its price tag would suggest, both then and now. The interior is in good condition, particularly considering its age, and it has a comfortable, welcoming look. Grippy inserts help hold you in place during spirited driving, and with a long list of comfort and convenience options this one is a no-compromises V8 muscle car. A/C, power windows and locks, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo were all on the menu and make the IROC feel like the top-of-the-line car that it is. The center console houses most of the controls, plus the shifter for the 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, which facilitates manual shifting by being just a few inches from the leather-wrapped wheel. The gauges are in good shape, although the anemic 85 MPH speedometer is kind of a wet blanket, but there''s a fully array keeping an eye on the engine up front. The back seat is in excellent shape, and folds down to make the cargo area downright massive. Nice! GM''s bulletproof and powerful 5.0 liter V8 was the standard engine on the IROC, and was more than competitive with the Ford unit from across town. As a small block Chevy, it''s also insanely easy to modify, which also explains why so many Camaros went to meet their makers prematurely. Fortunately, this one is all stock, suggesting that it hasn''t been raced or abused. Turn the key and it fires quickly, settling into a cackling V8 idle that suits the flashy muscle car perfectly, and thanks to a lifetime in the warm, dry south, the chassis is impressively tidy for being nearly 30 years old. The original 16-inch alloys are in great condition with no curb rash, and wear 215/65/16 Firestone Firehawk performance radials. Just a nice driver, this car still commands respect on the street and will surely have a future in the collector car world. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
