NEW 1985 IRCO-Z HELP PLEASE...

Hello everyone,

I am a friend of the gentlemen that bought the 85 Iroc from Ebay with 4.3 miles on it. I am in need of a set of 2, or 4 factory NEW Silver Iroc wheels for this car. The original wheels were sold when it was new. I have found two new wheels already, but if I could get all four at the same place, that would be ideal.

Also, I am in need of at least 2 if not 4 New, or very little used 245/50VR16 Goodyear Gatorback tires. I know its a long shot, but I have found 2 tires that are new with the stickers on them yet, and need at least two more.

If anyone can help, or can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it!

Thank you in advance for your help!!

Keith

Keith don't forget that the rear and the front wheels on IROCs were different. They will say front or rear on them. Good luck with your hunt. Wow only 4.3 miles. Thats a rare car.

What was the final bid on that car? I watched it for a while. How good did it clean up?

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize they were different. This is going to be a real job finding some new wheels then. I really want to find some new old stock if at all possible. Yea, it's been fun being involved with this car. Seing something that old, still new is weird. I just gave it a bath for the first time today. Its going to need a wax job which I will attempt on Sunday. The paint is a bit faded, but should come out ok with some work. I will post some pictures soon so you can check it out..

Oh well, I will keep searching. Again, thank you for the information, it was very helpful!

Take care...


Keith

The car sold for 26,200. It was won by only 100.00. It cleaned up really well with the exception of the paint is faded a bit.

Im going to polish and was on Sunday and see how it comes out then. I will post some pictures soon of before and after.

Take care.

Keith

WOW!!!!!
Only 4.3 miles?!?!!?
And the dude sold the wheels when he first got the car and it needs a paint job? I take it he did not have this car stored in a garage?
Any pics?
GOOD LUCK with finding your parts!

Yea, thats the car. However I dont think its going to need a paint job. Here is a video of the car after I washed it for the first time.

I also waxed a few parts of the car to see what it would look like. I ran out of time that day. I have then since waxed the car completely, and I will post some pictures later today to show you what it looks like. It tured out really good. It just needs some more work on the hood and a few other spots that are kinda dull. But as you can see, it doesent look that bad considering it has been sitting all those years...Will post some pics later...Take care...

Doesnt look bad. I think it looks fine. Also reminds of the back of the future car when they pulled it out of the mine and put the mismatched wheels on it.

So, Keith what's the story behind this car? What a find! Was it mothballed because someone passed or just didn't like the car? I just can't believe the car is in such good shape. My best friend drove an IROC and she said she wished she'd never traded it.
I'll be waiting to read the story line for this one.

They are missing on the car, because they have not been installed yet. When Chevrolet shipped these cars, they left the front lower nose piece in the car to be installed by the dealer. They did this because they would scrape as they drove the cars off of the carrier truck.

I have the lower front piece, just need to install it this week is all....It is still sealed in a plastic bag, and the paint looks brand new!! All the hardware is still sealed as well...Should look good once I install that, and get some rims. If I could ever find some that is...
