The 1977 Camaro and the return of its popularity also mean the Z28 model was back on the table for consumers.

The Z28 was meant to stratify performance enthusiasts who were being overlooked by almost all other US car manufacturers.

The 1977 Camaro Z28 was considered a “bare bones” performance car.

1977 Spotters Guide & New Features

Besides the 1977 Chevrolet Camaro outselling the Ford Mustang (198,755 to 161,654) for the 1st time, the biggest news in the Automotive industry in 1977 was the return of the Z28 Camaro.

No longer just an engine RPO, the Z28 was now a specific model, with emphasis on the suspension and appearance. The Z28’s 350 V8 engine made 185 hp, exhaling through dual exhaust resonators and it came mated to the close ratio M21. Suspension included: front & rear sway bars, special springs, special shocks and faster steering.

In the appearance department the Z got blacked out grilles, rear panel and rocker panel, dual sport mirrors, front & rear spoilers, body colored 15″ 5 spoke wheels, and body colored bumpers. In addition to this, the car got bold accenting graphics, decals, and emblems. For complete 1977 Camaro Z28 specifications  click here.
