1984 Camaro Restoration Information

1984 Camaro Specifications

The Camaro saw few changes in 1984 when it came to the body, however, a number of interior changes were made. The dashboard for all Camaros was upgraded and now featured smaller controls for a sleeker look.

There was also a new overhead console and pod-mounted controls for things like cruise control, windshield wipers and headlights. The radio was mounted on a swivel so it could be made to face either the driver or passenger.

In the Berlinetta, electronic gauges replaced the standard instrument cluster.

The Z28 remained virtually unchanged except for the fiberglass hood on the L69-equipped models, which was replaced with a similar steel version.
