1984 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta
1984 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta
The term Berlinetta refers to a sports coupé, typically with two seats but also including 2+2 cars. The original meaning for berlinetta in Italian is “little saloon”. Introduced in the 1930s, the term was popularized by Ferrari in the 1950's. Maserati, Opel, Alfa Romeo, and other European car manufacturers have also used the Berlinetta label.
Here in North America, Chevrolet produced a version of the Camaro called the Berlinetta, from 1979 to 1986. From the 1984 advertising: “Above the night sky is black, punctuated by the flickering stars and planets. Below the white lines of the road snake deep into the unknown. The blue green glow of your instrument cluster says all systems go for your starship Camaro Berlinetta.” This nice example has just 58,000 original miles and comes with the original window sticker and owner's manual.
Beige enamel drapes this low mileage car, and is highlighted by black accents like drip moldings, window trim, halogen headlight and signal light boxes, and front grille air dams. Noted too is a black trim stretching from well to well at the belt line. Rockers are two tone dark beige and are topped by pin striping. At the rear of this car is a crash bumper badged with Berlinetta, and the metal part of the rear hatch has a small spoiler which integrates with the rear lighting and rear panels. A large greenhouse wrap around hatch covers a nice cargo area. Supertrac radial tires wrap turbine style dark gold painted steel wheels.
Climb in, buckle up, and turn the key to light up the digital instrument panel, framed with plenty of push buttons at your fingertips. Cruise control, power locks, power windows, a stereo with equalizer driving 4 stereophonic speakers, computer-controlled suspension, all wrapped in tinted glass. Grab a seat and you are surrounded by near pristine tan cloth buckets with two tone brown and black striped bolsters. These buckets flank a beautiful black console which houses the power window toggles, rear deck opener, and rear window defogger. Gold carpeting with nary a sign of fading, floods the floor, and stretches from door panel to door panel, as well as stretching to the rear 2+2 seating. If you want to hide the cargo area contents, just give the rear cargo shade a pull.
A 305ci V8 mill rests comfortably within an original engine bay. A 115 amp generator is noted, an air injection reactor system feeds fossils and air, and power is pushed rearward through a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. A 3.08 rear axle moves you forward.
Some surface rust has accumulated on steel parts; however, frame and pans are structurally solid as a rock. Computer controlled suspension gives this sports car its luxury ride.
Turning the key will light up this mid 80's spaceship. Tickling the accelerator will begin the forward motion to warp speed, all the while floating over the roadway due to the computer-controlled suspension. So, climb in and grab hold of the future!
