Real Z-28 Rally Sport. #s match front to back. Very honest original
car. Original metal. From a prominent car collection.
The Z-28 was the option code for a street racer. The high revving
302 was actually close to 400 hp, not the 290 it was rated at. Also
included was a mandatory 4-speed, 3.73 posi and power disc brakes.
Also had quick ratio steering, h.d. suspension, h.d. radiator, 15
inch wheels and racing stripes for good looks.
EXTERIOR: Original metal. Repainted once in 2001. Features the
Rally Sport option including hideaway lights and relocated reverse
lights. Also has exterior trim group, cowl induction and spoilers.
This is an early car and has the correct narrow rear spoiler. No
vinyl top, never had one. The Z-28 was the only Camaro in 1969 to
have 15 inch rally wheels. The BFG tires are new. The body is
really clean and straight. It fits real nice, doors shut nice. The
bottom of the fenders and doors are smooth, no bubbles. It was
repainted one time in 2001. Being straight really helps. We just
wet sanded and polished the paint to a high gloss. Stripes are
painted on correctly. It has pimples in the paint especially on the
trunk lid and a crack in the black hood stripe. Stand next to the
car and it looks great. All the stainless moldings are
exceptionally nice. Has the original antenna. Grill, bumpers
emblems are nice. Trim rings are new. Weatherstrips are in good
shape. Glass is very nice.
INTERIOR: The Rally Sport also upgrades the interior with woodgrain
trim and stainless trim on the pedals. This Z has optional console
with factory gauges, tachometer and deluxe wheel. Overall good
unabused condition. Nothing is broken or beat up. I think for the
most part it's original. The headliner and visors are real nice,
there's no rips and its tight. Upholstery, door panels and carpet
have just enough patina to look original but still in nice shape.
Has an aftermarket cassette player. Original cigarette lighter.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Vin #s match DZ 302 motor. Casting date and
build date line up perfectly with build date of the car. Correct #s
on the aluminum intake. Correct #s Holley carb. Correct double hump
heads and finned aluminum valve covers. It has original deep groove
pulleys so the belts dont fly off at high revs. Its had a complete
tune up, new reproduction dated plug wires. It was upgraded with
headers which really help the DZ 302 breath. The cowl induction is
functional and complete, even the flapper in the hood. Has original
trim tag on the firewall and codes match the car. It features power
steering and power brakes. Overall very respectable and proper
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Clean metal. I am inspecting with a flashlight
right now and there are no seams or splices. It looks like they are
the original quarter panels and trunk floor. It has been spatter
painted at some point. It is the original trunk mat stamped 9293.
Has a 15 inch rally wheel for a spare with a tire cover. Bottom of
the trunk lid and jamb are painted nicely, weatherstrip is
UNDERSIDE: The suspension and steering was just rebuilt. Complete
new front end- control arms, swaybar kit, balljoints, tie rods,
idler arm, springs etc. New steering box, pump and hoses. New rear
leaf springs and shackles. Has disc brakes in front, new drums and
shoes in back. E-brake cables are hooked up. Bottom of the motor
has fresh Chevy orange. The Muncie 4-speed is vin #s matching and
correctly dated. Also has original 12 bolt rear end with 3.73 posi.
Correct codes- BU E and dated Sept 19th. New rear axle seals and
bearings. New correct style exhaust with transverse muffler. The
metal under this car looks virgin. No signs of rust or repairs. The
inner rockers are clean, lower 1/4s are dry with the original drain
holes still in tact.
It's rare to find such an original Z-28 that really has been
"maintained" more so then "restored". The Rally Sport adds
considerable value too.
