No longer owned


I Traded my 85 IRoc Z28 for this, it supposedly only needed a battery and a carb.... but that wasn't the case. I killed the battery after trying and trying to start, so i put a charger on it and set it to jump start and cranked and cranked and cranked and it finally fired! but wouldn't stay running if it had anything less than half throttle..... sounded good and reved ok, but not much of a driver if it is always at half throttle.... and to top it off he never titled it, but he signed the title back in the mid 90's ..... Sold it awhile back :( kinda miss it!


301 Turbo electronic controled with an O2 sensor, feedback ECM and E4ME Quadrajet providing 205 hp and 340 lb·ft. 1/4 mile in 17.02 sec @ 82.1 mph. and maybe 9 seconds 0-60
