1983 Camaro Parts and Restoration Information

1983 Camaro Specifications


Base Camaro Sport Coupes and Berlinetta models saw little change for the 1983 model year, aside from some new transmission options, including a new Borg-Warner 5-speed (replaced the 4-speed) and a TH700-R4 automatic with overdrive was also introduced.

The Z28, on the other hand, saw an engine change when the 305ci LU5 Cross Fire Injection V8 was discontinued in April of 1983 and the new 305ci L69 High Output, capable of producing 190hp, was introduced. A new TH700-R4 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive replaced the Z28’s previous 3-speed. The TH700-R4 was not available on L69-equipped Z28 models but could be had on the base Z28 model.
