1981 Canadian 350 4-speed Z28 Owners Please reply

New to this site, so for looks great

So here's the thing. How rare are these D5A engine coded Z28s

In an effort to find out I have started compliling a list and maybe a registry.

Eight confirmed so far, two more likelies, dozens of possibles.

NO CLONES WELCOME

Need to see a build sheet or some other proof of the D5A engine coding.

Any owners interested drop me a line I'll show you what I have.

Suggestions welcome please

Hey Doug, There is a black 81 z28 auto with t-tops around the corner from me. He wants 4000. Is that a reasonable price?

Looks not bad, if it's all original with minimal rust I'd say it may be worth around that.

Exactly correct. In 1981, there were 3025 D5A Z/28's made. I wouldn't bother with the registry. I have one, just sold another. Probably know of another 10 around.

It's impossible to have a valid certificate of authenticity without verifying that it is not a rebody.

I have personally seen this car up close in the front showroom, and these pics do not do it justice. It is AMAZING to look at. Gotta love the 4-speed!

My Iroc Blue Metallic 1981 Z28 was a 350 / auto, (and no t-tops), but was originally the dark blue metallic with camel interior combo too. I kept the camel interior and brown dash just because of it's rarity.
