Larry and Shirley Ormsby purchased this highly optioned Z28 right out of the showroom floor at Berglund Chevrolet in Jamestown, New York on June 16th, 1967. The original dealer order form and the original check from Larry are still included with the vehicle! Because the Ormsby?s had three girls at the time, the salesmen, Art Almer, put another seat belt in the rear seat before it left the showroom floor! The Camaro today still retains all three rear seatbelts and the original window sticker. The Ormsby?s used the Z28 as a family car and drove it to work. Shirley drove the Camaro most of the time and Larry raced it on Sundays. At the drag strip with the small 15? tires, the car could not get much traction but turned the quarter mile at 14.5 seconds at 99 miles per hour in third gear through the traps! In 1969 Larry took the Camaro to the dealer and had them install a pair of Z28 emblems on the front fenders like the model year 1969 Z28 had. Through the 1970?s the Ormsby?s used the Z28 as a family car and even took it on a road trip to Mackinaw Island, Michigan with their kids. In the late 1970?s when gas took a big price increase and the octane went down, they couldn?t drive the Camaro anymore. So they put it into the garage for a decade of sleep. Finally in 1988, they decided to get the Z28 correctly resprayed with a new vinyl top. They started showing the car at Camaro shows, just to prove that they had a 1967 Z28, one of only 602 produced and that they were the original owners and had all the original documentation. They became a member of the Camaro Club of Allegheny Region out of Olean, New York and the members really enjoyed this original owner 1967 Z28! In 2007, the Ormsby?s were getting older decided to sell the Z28 in 2008 and the car was sold at auction to family here in St. Louis Missouri. This example is one of 602 Z/28s made during 1967.
