With six generations and a resume that dates back to the ‘60s, the Chevrolet Camaro nameplate has a lot to offer enthusiasts. But what about those folks who don’t want to choose? What if, for the sake of argument, someone owned a third-generation vehicle, but preferred the styling from the fifth generation? Well, in that case, you might end up with something like this odd Camaro mashup recently posted to Facebook Marketplace.
“Camaro 87 hot rod,” reads the listing description. “Please keep all negative comments to yourself.”
The car in question looks to be a 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z, which has the front and rear fascia from a 2011 Camaro SS applied on top. Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch V8, which connects to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission.
According to comments made by the seller, the vehicle has been sitting for six years and “needs minor work.” However, this Chevrolet Camaro mashup still runs and drives, and honestly, even though it’s dirty and needs some loving, the front and rear fascia applications actually look surprisingly well-executed. Sure, it’s definitely rough around the edges, but pump up the deflated rear tire, give it a thorough rub down, and this thing could be pretty fun to drive.
We’re also liking the flat-black paint application, which gives it a fun, post-apocalyptic vibe.
Unfortunately, the listing doesn’t include an asking price. Nevertheless, this looks like it could be a fun project for anyone who wants something a little different from the standard Chevrolet Camaros out there.
