While Chevrolet operated multiple notable changes on the 1977 Camaro, including the reintroduction of the Z28, there are two things I want to highlight for my audience.
1977 was the year when the second-generation Camaro sales went through the roof. The GM brand sold nearly 219,000 units, with the Z28 becoming a sought-after configuration – it secured around 13,000 orders during the first year following its comeback.

The second achievement could upset diehard Mustang fans, as the 1977 Camaro surpassed Ford's pony in yearly sales. The historical performance made the Camaro more popular than the Mustang in the United States.

The Camaro's record sales continued in 1978 when Chevrolet shipped over 272,000 units. The Z28's popularity increased, with approximately 55,000 orders this year.

The 1977 Camaro in these photos is an all-original survivor, and seller trekk00 claims it spent almost its entire life in a barn. The odometer indicates approximately 60,000 miles (96,500 km), so I would take this claim with a pinch of salt.

Fitted with a 305 two-barrel V8 engine and an automatic transmission, this Camaro still runs and drives, albeit you shouldn't consider it road-worthy. The owner explains that the gas tank leaks, so you'll likely need to install a new one before transforming this Camaro into a daily driver.

The vehicle exhibits the typical rust problems, but the most curious damage is on the front fender. The seller claims that a tractor backed up into the Camaro and produced the dent you see in the photos, though it's unclear if the car also suffered other damage. You should see the car in person or order a third-party inspection just to be on the safe side. Potential buyers should also put the Camaro on a lift and check the undersides, but the owner also shared several photos with the undercarriage, and it doesn't seem like the car will require extensive work in this department.

A 1977 Camaro isn't the most desirable collectible but still makes for a great occasional driver, especially thanks to its all-original condition. It's an easy project that won't cost a fortune, as the owner posted the Camaro online with a no-reserve auction.

The digital auction starts at $8,250, and considering the lack of a reserve, a single bid is enough to find a new home for this Camaro. However, the price seems too ambitious, as nobody entered the race to buy the car despite the listing going live earlier this week. It'll expire in three days, so this Camaro is running out of time to find a new home.

If you want to see it in person and decide if it's worth the money, you can find the car parked in Buffalo, New York.
