1982 Pace Car Value

Just kinda wondering what the value would be after i restore it. A couple more paychecks and im gonna see if the guy still wants to sell it for $900. 305 CFI but a new intake a]is on it now but i get the cfi intake and carbs, ttops, lil bit of mold on the inside and like a couple dime sized rust spots on the drivers front fender, just wondering what it would be worth when it done and put back to original. Thanks

The answer is - what ever the public is willing to pay.

Because the car is old, and because the car is not in mint condition and because 1982 was not a prime year for that vintage of car the answer is probably between $1000 - and $3000

You will probably spend more to restore it then what it will be worth.

If you wish to dispute my answer, you can go to Kelly Blue Book and look it up for yourself.

The neighbors, up on the hill above my house had one in their front yard.
They drove the poor thing, summer and winter.
The iron moths chewed it down to nothing.
The scrap man gave them $40 for it.

I believe that they kept the wheels and turned them in for the aluminum.

It might have had 80,000 miles on it, but the oil probably wasn't changed more then 6 times in its whole life.

They also had a IROC Z/28 with Recaro Bucket seats, T roofs and a killer stereo.
Same deal, the junk man gave them $40 for it and hauled it away.

thats crazy, it pains me to see cars like that that could have so much potential if the owners wouls take care of them. I have a 98 monte z34 with around 190k miles. People dont believe it has that much since i take such good care of it.

true indy pace cars with the true engines (meaning if it had the crossfire in it & still has the cross fire in it) then its worth more I have seen these cars go up to about 20k in the right conditons with the right equipment. over my years of dealing with these cars i have seen a few of them in washington state.

I know of one that has been fully restored & the owner was offered 35k for it & he said NO

No one of the replicas, but there are several clone replicas as well

The car is not worth anything.

If it was a '69 RS / SS / Z/28 - Convertible, Pace Car - then you could pretty much ask any price - in any condition and someone would be willing to make you a offer.

I know of a guy, that had a '69 when he was a kid, brand new off the show room floor.
He was desperate for money when he went to college and sold it to a friend who lived up on a farm. When that persons parents died and the farm was sold, he took his Pace Car to his house above Brockway PA. It sat in front of his house for many years in primer and except for a few people, no one ever knew what it was besides being a '69 Z/28 convertible with hide away headlights. The cousin of the original owner was a close personal friend of mine and knew the 2nd owner and one day on a trip to Elk Automotive to pick up some parts, he let us take that car for a ride, even with 10 year old gasoline in the tank, it would light up the tires in all 4 gears.

Several people begged him to sell them that car and he would not sell.
One day he was desperate for money and he sold that car for less then $10,000

The third owner, put a new roof, interior and a paint job on the car - White and Orange with all the decals.
I believe that it is now worth - more than $50K today.

Your car was made in 1982, they made lot's of Camaro's in 1982
1982 was not all that long ago in the grand scheme of things.
People knew when the 69' Z/28 came out that it was something special and was a real performer.
We all know that the Cross Fire Injection 305 was a real dog and that most - if not all of them blew up!
It was junk.
So basically what you have is a over glorified Z/28 Camaro with some stickers on it that says that it is a Pace Car.

When I lived in Clearfield County Pennsylvania, there were more 1984 Monte Carlo SS and Z/28 Camaro's and Pace Cars there then most anywhere else in the country.
In 1983 only a couple of SS Monte Carlo's were made somewhere around 4,713 - one for every Chevrolet dealer in the country that wanted one on their lot at that time.
In 1984 - production increased to 24,050 units..
In 1986 - when they made 200 Aero Coupe's - that was a real desirable car.

What you have to understand here is that the Monte Carlo SS used a front headlight bar cut in two sections - off a Z/28 Camaro to hold the headlights in the front end.
The cost of making a plain Jane Monte Carlo into a SS was almost triple as much as if you just went out and bought a brand new one off the lot.

With A Z/28 Camaro - all you had to do was change the wheels and the paint job and buy the decals and you could make a plain Z/28 into a pace car for about $1000 - $2000 depending on your source for parts.

I'm not putting your car down, all I am trying to do is explain to you that you don't have anything.

The rarest Camaro sold in 1982 was sold by a Chevrolet dealer in either Punxsutawney or Indiana PA. It was a new body style Z/28 Camaro with a factory installed 350 engine.

I have never seen one before or since.

It is sitting in a garage in Punxsy with less then 1000 miles on it.

The owner drives it to a local garage once a year to get it inspected and maybe twice a year to put it in local car shows. Probably less then 100 miles per a year is put on the car.

That person has been offered $30,000 for his Camaro and will not take it!

That is the Holy Grail of new body style Camaro's!

Cars like this need to be saved. First off it's a frigging camaro. No not wourth much but the can become a hellava good time restoring. I've got a few 3rd gen I love bouth and one was a 82 pace car. Kept the hood and carbs and installed bigger hood and offenhouser cross ram. The car rocks. It's pretty easy to work on and parts can be cheap (at times ). I have an albume in my profile with some cool pics. Please check them out.
