History of the 1982-1992 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
Chevrolet’s redesigned third-generation F-body helped breathe new life into the Z28 legacy in 1982, although standard power continued to wane with a 145-hp 305-cid V-8 beneath the model’s twin-scooped hood. Chevy’s 165-hp Cross-Fire Injection V-8 was optional, and a 1982 Z28 became the third Camaro to pace the Indianapolis 500. Pace car replicas again were marketed to the public.
Another optional small-block appeared for the Z28 in 1983. Known as the High Output (HO) V-8, this four-barrel fed mill produced 190 horses. Z28 sales soared past 100,000 in 1984. The following year, Chevy introduced the optional IROC Sport Equipment package, named for the International Race of Champions, which then relied exclusively on Camaros thanks to Chevrolet’s sponsorship.
A convertible Z was offered for the first time in 1987, and the repackaged IROC-Z superseded the traditional Z28 in 1988. Chevy support of the IROC series ended in 1991, resulting in the familiar Z28 badge’s return that year.
