As nice as investment grade first generation Camaros are, it seems that EVERYONE either owns one or knows someone who owns one. And as much as we enjoy seeing killer F1s come through our doors, it's always nice to find a pristine, second generation car. Being the avid Camaro fan that you are, you probably know finding a well-done 'split bumper' tribute isn't all that hard; but the chances of scoring a fully documented, numbers matching, real deal LT-1 powered Rally Sport are becoming almost as likely as purchasing a winning lottery ticket.

Assembled at GM's Van Nuys manufacturing facility in July of 1970, this super clean Z28/RS was delivered right down interstate 405 to Groth Chevrolet in Huntington Beach, California and promptly sold to a man by the name of Robert R. Machado. Being an impeccably maintained California car, it's all original sheetmetal has been kept fresh and rust-free for 42 years; and as a result, the car has never been wrecked, torn apart or subjected to any major bodywork aside from a fresh coat of lacquer paint. Because the car has never been disassembled it still presents surprisingly straight factory panel alignment which gives its correct GM code 67 Classic Copper and code 10 Classic White a silky smooth appearance. And while that old school finish is far from concours perfect, it still looks good, carries a great amount of character and perfectly complements an infamous urethane nosepiece which is both pliable and free of significant weathering.
General Motors envisioned the F2 Camaro as a working man's Ferrari and, thanks to a better timeframe and bigger budget, effectively addressed many of the complaints enthusiasts had about the F1. Longer, wider, lower to the ground and more aggressive, the second generation was certainly more of a driver's car, and is widely regarded as some of the best looking and best performing Detroit steel ever produced. At the front of the car, a striking two-piece Rally Sport valence centers a four-piece, “Z28” branded grille between ornate parking lights, clear headlights and mirror-like chrome bumperettes. Below that grille, a body-width front spoiler traces the contours of that Rally Sport valence all the way back to the car's front tires. And behind that grille, a smooth, stainless trimmed hood flows to pristine factory glass which is bordered by well-maintained stainless trim and cleared by Rally Sport exclusive hidden windshield wipers. The car's clean fuselage keeps extraneous trim to a minimum with only chrome flip up door handles, dent-free rocker moldings, body matched sport mirrors and correct “Z28” fender emblems breaking the cadence of the smooth Classic Copper paint. And out back, a 1970-exclusive low profile decklid spoiler hangs a correct “Z28” emblem above chrome trimmed, Rally Sport exclusive tail lights, a straight chrome bumper that's complete with small, vertical guards and bright stainless exhaust tips.
A lot of car buffs rave about the first generation Z/28 and Chevrolet's legendary DZ 302. But in reality, the LT-1 350 found under this Camaro's hood is a much better engine. Wearing a correct 3970010 casting number, a June (F) 18th (18) of 1970 (0) casting date, an LT-1 exclusive CTB suffix stamp and a correct 531017 partial VIN, this awesome small block utilizes a forged crank, storied 'pink' connecting rods, TRW domed pistons, a high performance cam and solid lifters to turn stout 11 to 1 compression into 360 horsepower! At the top of that hot engine, air is forced through a fully detailed dual snorkel air cleaner to a familiar Holley 780 carburetor and a high performance Winter aluminum intake. At the sides of that intake, finned aluminum valve covers loom fresh black plug wires above correct cast iron exhaust manifolds. And at the back of that intake, a standard points distributor rides beside a fully functional wiper motor and a gold Delco Moraine brake booster. Cooling is supplied by a heavy duty radiator which sends water past a correctly shrouded seven blade fan via reproduction GM hoses and prerequisite tower clamps. And spark is supplied by a reproduction Delco Energizer battery that's wired to a correct 37 amp alternator. Naturally, the cars satin black engine bay and Chevy orange block are clean and appear to have been immaculately maintained throughout their entire existence. And details like original decals, a functional windshield washer system and functional California smog equipment are in the kind of excellent, showroom fresh condition that ensures both big points and great performance.
Naturally, the bottom of this Camaro is completely original, with straight and solid floorpans bolted to a clean 42 year old chassis which tells the story of years of excellent maintenance. The car's original M-20 4-speed transmission, which wears a correct 3925661 casting number, a Protect-O-Plate matching P0D15A assembly stamp and a correct 531017 partial VIN, sends power to an original option G80 12 bolt Posi-traction rear end that's packed full of pavement scorching 3.73 gears. If you're a Chevrolet fan, you know anytime an F option code is listed on the build sheet, it means some serious suspension upgrades. And according to this Camaro's build sheet, it's equipped with the Z28 specific F41 special suspension, which for 1970, added higher rate front springs, five-leaf rear springs, stiffer valved shocks, a thicker front sway bar and a rear stabilizer bar. In addition to that F41 performance suspension, the car is fitted with optional J50 power front disc and rear drum brakes and an optional N40 power steering system for improved turns and stops; and a correct true dual exhaust system which sends spent gases through a transversely mounted rear muffler to fresh stainless exhaust tips. Everything under this Camaro looks functional and solid with even a light spraying of original undercoating still covering its dent-free floors. And power is put to the pavement through beefy five-spoke Rally wheels which spin F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around pristine trim rings and bright blue center caps.
Open the car's long doors and you'll find an original GM code 711 standard black vinyl interior which is both stylish and simple. That interior is built around well-maintained strato bucket seats which mix firm padding with straight and solid frames to provide a comfortable and supportive ride. At the top of those seats a pliable black headliner, which is stretched tightly from the car's windshield to its fade-free package tray, anchors an original round dome light. At the bottom of those seats, great looking original black carpet is protected by factory optioned rubber floor mats. And between those seats, a wide black console props a chrome Hurst shifter below a chrome cue ball shift knob. The car's vitals are monitored by a surprisingly straight original dash which hangs an optional electric clock, a rare 150 MPH speedometer and a Z28 specific 8,000 RPM tachometer behind a chrome trimmed instrument panel and an original pushbutton Delco AM radio. The driver stays connected to the road via a great looking original steering wheel that's complete with an “RS” branded horn button. And cargo is carried in a solid, pristine trunk which hangs original decklid decals over a correct jack, a like-new houndstooth mat and a full-size spare tire.
Documentation included with the sale of this cool old F-body consists of the original build sheet and Protect-O-Plate outlined above, the car's original owner's manual and component paperwork, and copies of a few of the previous owner's titles and registrations.
This investment grade Z28/RS is one of the best combinations of performance and style Detroit ever produced. And when you factor in our spectacular price, it easily becomes one of the most desirable F2 Camaros on the planet. As a mostly original, numbers matching classic it would be the perfect car for any discerning Chevrolet enthusiast, or a unique centerpiece for any exclusive muscle car collection!
