1980 Chevrolet Camaro description

NO time to work on my 454 Big Block 1980 Camaro Project Car. Was asking $9500, now $6750.00 or Best OfferI've invested this for the parts alone! I have receipts, and inventory to back up new parts inside engine.
No Major Accidents! Original Body panels. The trunk lid had rust on inner support, so I've changed it with another Factory Deck lid...holes will need to be drilled for spoiler. Both deck lids are included.

Let me start off first by saying, I'm no Spring Chicken....I've been around building Chevy Muscle cars since High School in 1989, having built many engines, body work, suspension rebuilds, and complete restorations. I've simple run out of time for all my hobbies, and making room from the ones I don't have time to complete. I have the bits and pieces that come with the car, Original Center Console, tail lights, headlamps, door handles, door panels, etc, which are original aged condition. I have some restoration pieces; new rubber shift boot, restoration decals, original sales brochure, stuff like that.

Engine Is Fresh, Car will Start and Drive, but not ready for street duty. Example, You can drive it onto a trailer.

Very little rust. (Car has been in Idaho for past 20+ years). Bottom of both fenders had small area of rust, but was cut out, and steel welded in, and repair is ready for final prep. Rear passenger lower quarter, had rust cut out, and repair panel welded in. This area needs weld final grind/sanding to complete patch. I've changed out the rear trunk deck lid, as the original had some rust on the inner support panel. I will also include that old panel. I have the Rear Spoiler.
Needs final overall prep for paint, needs interior, needs tires, and exhaust welded up (it's fitted, and temporary clamped into place). Also needs some misc items (power steering pump and lines missing). I have 2 new electric fans, but not mounted and have not run wiring. I temporarily installed a Tach, Oil Pressure guage, and Water Temp gauge, so I could adjust the engine. These gauges are included, but you will have to decide how you want to mount them.

Front Suspension Rebuilt, (new MOOG balljoints and Energy Suspension A-Arm poly bushings.New Shocks, New poly snubers.
Front Subframe has been done, New Poly Subframe Mounts installed.New Poly Engine and Trans Mounts
Rear End has NOT been done yet, but I have the poly bushings already purchased. Other Misc little items.....as all hot rods require. The Radio works...but I have not tried the cassette deck.
Fresh Rebuilt Engine/4 Speed Sagina, Hurst Shifter (Originally a V6/3speed Saginaw Manual) Engine started and warmed up approx every 3 months. Redline Zinc Oil Additive added to break in oil. New Gear Oil in Transmission Gear Box, DexCool Coolant with Zinc Anode bar installed in new 3 row Aluminum Radiator.
***More body work has been done since these pictures. Paint is all down to bare steel in most areas (except the lower rockers, and area behind rear wheel arch, which needs a small rust hole fixed), all chrome window trim has been removed, is included and re-useable. *** Bottom Chrome Rocker Trim was missing, and I opted to weld the holes shut instead of replacing the missing trim.
454 (1979 Vintage) block is .030 over, Fresh Bores by LAMB Speed Shop in Boise I.D., and New Speed Pro Hyper Flat Tops, Moly Rings, Oval Port Heads, Offenhauser 360 Alum Intake, 750 Carter AFB, HEI with MSD Module, Std/Std Crank, new 77 Bearings, New Tru-Roller Cloyes, New Oil Pump, 30K miles on Crower BEAST cam, New Hedman Hustler Full Length Headers (2" Primaries 3.5 collectors) 2.5 inch Dual Exhaust with "44" style mufflers. Exhaust system all fitted, but I have not yet welded or final hung.

New Clutch, New Starter, New Water Pump, New Alternator, New Front Brake Calipers, Front Brake Pads, Rear Wheel Cylinders, Rear Shoes, all brake hardware replaced, Rotors and Drums Turned, bearings repacked.
Gen 3 Wheels.
Door Hinges rebuilt. Much of the body work has been started/done. Will need to finish some body work, paint, and interior. Front Fenders have body work done, ready to rehang. The hood will probably need a scoop/cowl inducting to clear the air cleaner, or you could fabricate a low profile custom air cleaner for a sleeper look. Or swap out for a Z/28 hood. Currently, the fenders are off the car, so I have not checked hood clearance because of that. The photos with the fenders on, they are just sitting there for mock up stage, they are not bolted on.

A/C Equipped car Originally, but ALL A/C Equipment is GONE, only the control levers are remaining. If you want Air Conditioning, you will have to buy all the equipment to retrofit.

Originally Asking $9500.00,.....PRICE REDUCED, $6750.00 or best offer
First start here: (Open Headers, engine not yet timed/nor carb adjusted)

I will make another video with engine running through exhaust (It sounds much throatier and louder in person....my 10 year old camcorder does not capture it, you'll need to hear it in person)

Video from this COLD SNOWY Dec 2 2018 morning.https://youtu.be/T28OP-ZixXQ
2nd start, camera on tripod, (Notice small rust hole I haven't got around to welding up)Exhaust and mufflers still cold, so it's gonna have condensation on this winter morning until it warms up.
