Bolted together during the fourth week of February, 1969, this Z/28 left the factory as one serious performer. In late 2006, the car was treated to a frame-off restoration that returned its appearance to beautiful, show quality condition. And even though white Chevys traditionally employ black stripes, the blue ones on this coupe's solid body do an excellent job complementing its correct blue interior. Despite its age, the car's bright Dover White shines deeply and appears free of significant defects. The solid body's finish rides at better-than-factory tolerances. And, as it sits, this classy F1 is guaranteed to turn heads every time it backs out of the garage!
There's no question the first generation Camaro is one of the best-looking pony cars of all time. And that's only reinforced by the fact that Chevrolet fans recently voted the '69 Z/28 the best car of the brand's first 100 years! At the front of this old school pavement pounder, a stainless-trimmed grille hangs bright halogen headlights and a showroom-fresh “Z/28” emblem above clear parking lamps, a new chrome bumper and a familiar D80 chin spoiler. Behind that grille, a traditional cowl induction hood anchors bright “302” scripts between a fresh “Camaro by Chevrolet” emblem, satin-finished windshield wipers and clean glass that's framed in dent-free stainless trim. At the sides of that hood, standard rocker moldings combine with correct “Camaro” scripts, chrome side mirrors and traditional door handles to add a bit of flash to the car's clean profile. And at the back of the car, a correct D80 decklid spoiler rides above segmented tail lights, a centered “Z/28” emblem and a second chrome bumper.
Pop this awesome Chevrolet's hood and you'll find an original 302 cubic inch, VIN-verified V8 which wears a correct 3956618 casting number behind a February (B) 7th (07) of 1969 (9) casting date and Flint, Michigan (V) produced, Camaro Z/28-exclusive small block (DZ) assembled on the tenth (10) day of February (02) 1969 assembly stamp. Conservatively rated at 290 horsepower, this high performance powerplant utilizes rectangular port heads, a forged steel crankshaft, forged steel connecting rods, four-bolt mains and forged aluminum pistons to create an SCCA worthy 11 to 1 compression ratio and roughly 370 real world horsepower! At the top of the hot engine, a decaled, single-snorkel air cleaner funnels wind into a correct 3923289 DZ carburetor that's juiced by fresh stainless fuel lines. Under that carburetor a familiar 3932472 Winter intake rides between correct double hump heads that hang finned Corvette valve covers over modern, long-tube headers. At the back of those heads, a traditional points distributor shoots fire through fresh Packard TV R Suppression wires. Aesthetically, the car's clean engine compartment is top notch in every way with a GM satin black frame contrasting a vivid Chevy Orange centerpiece. And cool details abound, including a reproduction Delco Energizer battery, a correct Delco Moraine brake booster, reproduction GM hoses and correct Wittek clamps.
Under this curve carving Z/28 you'll find a thoroughly restored chassis that's ready for vintage league laps at the local race track. Behind the car's original engine, an authentic Muncie M20 carries a correct 3925661 casting number above a correct partial VIN and a 1969 model (9) Muncie (P) completed on February (B) 3rd (03) assembly code. Transforming that transmission's twist into thrust is a BU 0224 G2 coded 12-bolt which spins a posi-traction differential around correct 3.73 gears. Turns come courtesy of a track-tuned double A-arm front and leaf spring rear suspension that, thanks to mandatory power front disc and rear drum brakes, provides driving dynamics which belie its chassis' true age. A thrill-inducing soundtrack roars through large diameter, true-dual pipes that employ aggressive, dual-chamber Flowmasters. And all this fully sorted muscle rolls on traditional GM Rally wheels that spin modern 235/60R15 Firestone Firehawks around bright trim rings and pit-free center caps.
Inside this cool coupe you'll find a restored, and correct, GM code 715 blue vinyl interior that's in excellent shape. Like most first generation Camaros it's nothing too fancy or sophisticated, but it does serve as a classic complement to the car's clean blue on white paint. Step right in to freshly installed carpet that centers “Z/28” branded floor mats on a standard issue console, a chrome Hurst shifter and Chevy's 4-pack accessory gauges. At the edges of that console, standard seats feel firm to the touch. And at the sides of those seats, standard door panels hang clean armrests, pit-free handles and correct black “Camaro” emblems inside pristine stainless trim. At the top of the car, a tight headliner stretches around a chrome-trimmed dome lamp. At the front of the car, a glossy, 1969 Camaro-exclusive dash props a smooth and crack-free pad above rebuilt gauges and a modern Custom Autosound radio. And at the back of the car, a fully restored trunk hangs a correct decklid decal over a full-size spare tire and fresh houndstooth mat.
The sale of this striking F1 includes an original owner's manual and a component manual for its Custom Autosound head unit.
From its straight sheetmetal to its clean interior, this Chevy's a show stopper! Repeat after me: This is a numbers-matching, drivable, professionally restored Z/28 for less than 65 grand. It's certainly one classic that has the pedigree to match its awesome good looks. And if you're an enthusiast who wants to watch your car's value increase over time, it's a logical candidate for your garage!
