1987 IROC Z LB9 G92

For sale is my beautiful 1987 IROC Z LB9 5-Speed G92 Camaro. I cannot believe I am doing this but I have bills to pay and unfortunately the car must go. This was my dream car and now it can be yours. This car is great as is for daily driving or you can baby it on the weekends. It also is primed to be your next race car. I’ll explain below.

OK let’s start with the description…


This 1987 IROC-Z with LB9 5.0 has 94,000 miles on the body. Yes it is the G92 package from 1987 with the 3.45 rear end. The engine block was replaced in the early 90s by the original owner. I do not know how many miles exactly are on the newer engine block. It was repainted at this time. It has a Crane cam, Edelbrock headers, and a Gale Banks exhaust system. I have minimal information on what the original owner did besides this. But the cool thing about this IROC is that, although it is not numbers matching original, it has “period correct” aftermarket upgrades. As you might know, Banks exhaust was all the rage back then. They only make diesel exhaust parts now from what I can see so you cannot find this exhaust system anywhere. I do not think you can find this old Edelbrock header setup anymore either. It has a great sound.

I am the third owner and have poured tons of heart and soul (and money) into this vehicle. The 2nd owner only had this car for about 3 years and just drove it around the north side of Chicago. He did not do anything special, only maintained it.I have owned this car since 2011 and bought it with 79,000 miles on it. As you can see, I haven’t driven it much, only about 2,500 miles a year or less since I have owned it. It never saw snow or salt.

Here are the upgrades from the time I have owned the car:

-RAM Powergrip HD clutch installed in 2012 at 80,000 miles. There is some chatter on takeoff as this is a very aggressive clutch. Minimize this by raising RPMs to appropriate level.

-New oxygen sensor at 83,000

-Brakes lines flushed/replaced, front end alignment at 83,500

-Replace air pump, sway bar links, remove catalytic converter, and install BMR bolt-in/weld sub-frame connectors at 85,000

-New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil and Holley adjustable fuel pressure regulator at 86,000-Retrofit AC system. Air blows cold at 86,700

-Installed brand new Tremec TKO 600 transmission at 86,800

-Installed new Walbro 255lph fuel pump at 86,800

-Replaced engine belts at 93,000

-New radiator at 93,600

-Installed Steeda Tri-ax shifter at 94,000-New front emblem and “Tuned Port Injection” emblem on the rear.

-Oil and other fluids changed regularly. I have some paperwork to go with the sale so you will have a record of other things like rear diff flush, coolant flush, etc…

Right now the car runs and rives great. Starts on cue and shifts beautifully. This would be a perfect addition to your garage as a daily driver or a fun car on Sundays. The original radio was replaced by the 2nd owner for a CD player. It also accepts AUX cable for iPod or phone music.

Most importantly, this IROC is ready to accept a new motor and become your next street/strip race car project. It has the RAM powergrip HD clutch, the TKO600 transmission, the Steeda Tri-Ax short shifter, and the BMR subframe connectors to handle the power. It has the Walbro 255 liter per hour fuel pump to supply everything your engine asks for. As you can see a lot of the prep work is already done. It has a solid frame and beautiful paint/body to look good while doing so!


Also included is a set of IROC wheels, a spare wheel, the original 1987 IROC tail lights (aftermarket tail lights on the car right now), a car cover, a 2nd ‘865 ECM and all of my tuning equipment from Moates (ostrich 2.0, chip reader, ALDL connector, memcal adaptor, 2 stock memcals, etc).

Here’s the bad… the interior needs some work but is all original. The seats have some stains, the cloth on the doors needs to be re-stitched, and the steering wheel leather is peeling. The paint has a chip on the rear spoiler. Other small blemishes/dents here and there. The emergency brake is disconnected and not working at this time. There are lots of rattles and buzzing sounds when driving down the road. This is very common for old 80s Camaros. It hasn’t been that many miles since the last full tuneup but it’s been over 4 years, so it might need new plugs, wires, cap, and rotor if you’re so inclined.

Price is $7,500 OBO. Will respond to PMs or you can email me at [email protected]. I am located in Schiller Park, Illinois near O’Hare airport. Many more pictures to come but I have not taken the car out yet this year due to weather obviously.

Shipping isn’t too bad.. DO IT!! Ha ha

That’ll be a showstopper with a little detailing, seat covers from Princess and some paint (which we know you can do!)
