Rick’s Camaros is your one-stop shop for 1981 Camaro parts. The 1981 Camaro was a Second Generation F-Body Camaro, spanning from years 1970-1981. 1981 included the Sport Coupe, Z28 Coupe, and Berlinetta Coupe. 1981 marked the final year of second gen Camaros, where appearance changes were limited to minor color and trim variations. New options this year included halogen headlights and locking wheel cover locks for the Berlinetta’s standard wire wheel covers. The standard Delco Freedom II battery featured a new low weight design which was more durable and less susceptible to vibration damage. The Z28 continued to feature the functional rear-facing hood scoop introduced the previous year, and the functional side fender ports for exhaust of engine compartment. All 1981 Camaros were equipped with Chevrolet’s “advanced computer command control” engine management system. Power brakes and space saver spare tires became standard in 1981. Rally Sport models were also dropped this year, and would not reappear for several years. In addition to carrying 2nd Generation 1981 Camaro parts, Rick’s Camaros has parts for all Camaro models available. We have all the parts and accessories you need to help restore your Generation Two 1981 Camaro, at the best prices! Trust Ricks for all of your restoration and replacement needs for your racer, show car, street rod, or daily driver.

Camaro Hood Safety Latch & Mounting Hardware, Chrome, 1967-1981 Part # C-9473
Original Style Reproduction Triple Chrome Plated Includes Upper Lock Pate, Pilot Bolt, Pop-Up Spring Retainer (4) Chrome Hex Head Bolts with Washers Your hood safety latch on your 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, or 1981 Camaro is what bolts to the bottom of the hood and keeps it closed. If this were to rust or come undone, it is possible that your Camaro's hood could get loose and open while driving. This is a safety hazard, as well as chance of looking silly on the road. Rick's Camaros offers a nice chrome reproduction of the upper hood safety latch which bolts to the bottom of the Camaro hood. When the hood closes, the pilot bolt is caught by the hood opening mechanism and the hook on the mechanism catches the safety latch just in case the hood opening mechanism fails on your Camaro. This safety latch and mounting hardware set is triple chrome plated and includes the upper lock plate, pilot bolt, and pop-up spring retainer, with four chrome hex head bolts with washers. Trust Rick's Camaros for all of your restoration and replacement needs for your 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, or 1981 Camaro!  WARNING: There are two nuts which hold the pilot bolt to the lock plate. Please make sure there is one nut on one side of the lock plate and one nut on the other side. This jams the pilot bolt, keeps it from backing out and reinforces the plate. Failure to check this may result in part failure at highway speed which could cause the hood to fly up.    Learn More

Insulating Exhaust Wrap Part # 88-0173-1
Reduces Under-Hood Temperatures up to 70% Increases Horsepower & Fuel Efficiency Withstands Heat up to 2000 Degrees  The original Exhaust Insulating Wrap was developed over 12 years ago by Thermo-Tec. Exhaust Insulating Wrap is an innovative way to create more horsepower and reduce under-hood temperatures. Wrapping headers maintains hotter exhaust gases that exit the system faster through decreased density. Increased exhaust scavenging is produced, along with lower intake temperatures. Exhaust Insulating Wrap withstands continuous heat up to 2000°F, and contains no asbestos. Thermo-Tec exhaust wrap will not over-insulate a system when properly installed due to a proprietary coating developed by Thermo-Tec - Thermal Conduction Technology (TCT) - that conducts heat across the wrap's surface. This coating controls heat build-up and dissipation. Just wrap it around your exhaust pipe and secure with lock ties P/N 88-0174-1. Protect wrap with Hi-Heat Coating spray P/N 88-0175-1. Wrap roll is 50' x 2" & 1/16" thick, which is enough to cover one header or exhaust pipe.   Learn More
