It’s hard to imagine buying and making the payments on a car that you never intend on driving, but this is extremely common for rare, limited-edition versions of certain vehicles. If a car is suspected of being worth a pretty penny in the future, you can bet there will be someone out there who will buy one, stick it under a cover and forget about it for 40 years, only to flip it for a profit.
It appears that that’s what someone did with this 1981 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 currently for sale on eBay. This is a true 1980s time capsule, showing just 53 original miles on the odometer and appearing in like-new condition. The body is perfect and the leather seats aren’t even showing a single wrinkle. Furthermore, the engine bay looks clean enough to eat off of and it has been kept in a climate-controlled garage for its entire life.
According to the listing, “this car is the lowest mileage all original 1981 Camaro Z/28 in existence.” Described as being in “mint” condition, it comes with all the original documentation (window sticker, sales invoice, warranty info etc.) and the original window sticker. It was ordered new with power doors and locks, tinted windows, t-tops, cruise control, an automatic transmission, a tilt steering wheel, and the optional silver vinyl bucket seats.
There’s not much time left on the auction as of this writing, but we couldn’t resist showing you this unique, low-mileage 1980s Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Bidding currently sits at $41,600.
