Anyone Know much about the 1984 olympic edition camaro?

I dont think that I have ever seen one, and was wondering if anyone knew more about these cars. The RPO code was 1A3, and i think only like 3722 were made. Rare car, but any info would be appreciated.

www.thirdgen.org look under the history/restoration board. That is going to be your best bet on the net. I don't think there is much info on these cars. If yours is in good shape it may be the only model available and we may be able to learn much off of it.

Re: Anyone Know much about the 1984 olympic edition camaro?

I had one, bought it brand new from a dealer in Waycross Georgia that is no longer in business.

Best I can remember is below:

1984 all White, Orange and blue stripes - just on the bottom and around the front and rear bumper, automatic, 305 V8, spoiler on the back, dual exhaust, medium to dark blue interior.

They had a smooth hood with no z28 fake air intakes. Mine did not have t-tops and I don't know if any did.

The interior was, I always thought, a Berlinetta interior, which was the nicest interior back then . The interior was much nicer than a standard camaro. Full guages, nicer radio, full power everything.

My brother had a z28 of the same year, so we always compared them, and by the way, mine would out run his z28 which always pissed him off. It would chirp a second with the automatic, and his z28 auto would not.

I kept a Florida Gators tag on the front because the colors of their school almost matched the stripes identically.

The exterior was kind of plain, but the interior was very nice. Cloth interior, not vinyl or leather, and I think it had a little texture and maybe a herringbone kind of look and feel to the center of the seats. A little fuzzy on that part.

The OP and I are still looking for one and still great friends after 25 years. If we ever find one worth buying we're going 50/50 on it.

The "Camaro White Book" indicates:

A special Camaro Sarajevo Winter Olympics Package was offered in November and December of 1984. This was SEO (Special Equipment Option) 1A3. The cars were white with red/white/blue stripes and had winter Olympics insignia with Sarjevo '84.
Build quantity is shown as 3,722. No retail price is shown.

Not a bad looking car. Not into the wheels, but would have to stay.
