1980 Camaro Restoration Information

1980 Camaro Specifications

The 1980 Camaro was the year Chevrolet decided the 4.4 L V8 would now only be offered on the ‘standard/base’ model Camaro, the Rally Sport and Berlinetta.

The good news was that the Z28 Camaro hood now included a rear-pointing raised scoop and coupled with a flap that allowed for cool air to enter the engine bay.

EPA Fuel Economy was a big theme in 1980. In an effort to save weight the venerable but porky 250 was axed in favor of the V6. 49 states got the Chevy (odd-fire) 229 CID, while Californians got the Buick (even-fire) 231 CID. Both were 90 degree V6s, the Chevy was a “3/4 V8”.

Good news on the Z28 front. Styling changes made the car seriously sinister. It had some extra poke under the hood too.

The Berlinetta got spiffy wire wheel covers which replaced the poly-cast wheels and the paint scheme for the RS model was modified.

Ahoy – there was a recession looming on the horizon and sales plummeted to 1/2 of the previous year’s record-setting level.

The 1980 Camaro saw the following additional changes implemented:

  • 267 CID V8 debuted (not available in California)
  • 250 CID L6 eliminated, replaced with V6
  • New tight mesh grille
  • To save gas – speedometer reads to 85 MPH max, down from 130 MPH
  • Vinyl roof cover eliminated
