Vehicle Description

Nothing beats an original, especially in the automotive world. In 2010, with the introduction of Chevrolet's fifth-generation pony car, the value of first-generation Camaros started trending upward. And in 2014, with the reintroduction of the brutal Z/28, the value of vintage Zs was practically canonized. Rocking 68-exclusive Corvette Bronze paint, a rotisserie restoration and a numbers-matching small block, this documented, first-generation Z/28 is the quintessential blue chip muscle car. Looking to add an investment grade F1 to your collection? Check out your next classic!

THE HISTORY OF THE CORVETTE CAMARO

Assembled in February of 1968 at Norwood, this awesome Camaro was initially purchased by a Mr. M.P. Peterson of nearby Jackson, Ohio. In 1971, Mr. Peterson decided to trade the car on a Boss 429, and that's when, thanks to a Ford dealership mechanic, this Chevy met its second and longtime owner: August VanDeVoorde, Jr. VanDeVoorde drove the car daily until 1973, during which he constructed a dry storage spot and shipped out with the U.S Navy. For the next 13 years VanDeVoorde's brother would roll this Z out every summer and freshen or rebuild any ailments he could find. Circa 1986, when VanDeVoorde returned home, he decided to rebuild the car's engine with fresh OEM components and enjoy it as a stylish weekend cruiser. However, after only a few years in his native town of Kewanee, Illinois, VanDeVoorde once again stowed his classic and hit the road for another long-term assignment. Fast-forward to 2013, and VanDeVoorde finally made the difficult decision to pass the car to its third owner. In March of 2014, Howard Zimmerman of Hanna City, Illinois kicked off a detailed rotisserie restoration that transformed a solid driver into a polished showstopper. And in the fall of 2016, we sold this choice Chevy to its fourth and current owner.

Stripped all the way to bare metal during its detailed restoration, this Camaro's mostly original body has been carefully re-sprayed in correct Corvette Bronze pigment and lovingly laced with fresh Tuxedo Black Rally Stripes. And, naturally, those attractive aesthetics have been complemented with a roster of correct bolt-ons. At the front of this clean F1, a black-trimmed grille hangs '68-exclusive parking lamps between a mirrored bumper and bright halogen headlights. Above that grille, a correct hood leads the eye to clean glass that's seated in straight stainless frames. At the sides of that glass, a small mirror joins fresh rocker spears, traditional door handles, simple "Camaro" scripts and bright "Z/28" emblems to detail a sculpted profile. And at the back of that profile, a Camaro-branded decklid shades a body-matched fuel cap, '68-exclusive taillights and a second mirrored bumper.

MO 302

Under this coupe's Kansas-flat hood you'll find an original, 302 cubic inch small block that fronts a correct 3914678 casting number with a correct "MO" assembly stamp and matching 417983 partial VIN. Straight from the factory, Chevrolet's high performance SCCA Mustang slayer utilizes high-flow, rectangular-port heads, a forged steel crank, forged steel rods and forged aluminum pistons to twist stout 11 to 1 compression into more than 350 horsepower! At the top of the red-hot mill, a chrome, open-element air cleaner swirls wind into a familiar Winters intake thanks to a big Holley carburetor. At the sides of that intake, authentic 'double hump' heads hang chrome valve covers over long-tube headers. And at the back of those heads, a mandatory points distributor shoots spark through 7mm Packard Delcore Suppression Cables. When fired, the solid lifter small block barks and snarls like a real competition piece. Its ancillary components are top-notch in every way, with a modern battery and refinished Delco Moraine brake booster accompanying a rebuilt alternator and clean AC fuel pump. And an evenly sprayed combination of Chevy Orange skin and Satin Black framing is carefully interrupted by variety of correct decals.

THE TRANS AM CAMARO

Back in 1968, the only transmission you could get with your Z/28 was a tough Muncie 4-speed, and that's exactly what lives behind this car's mean small block. That correct 3925660 gear slinger spins what appears to be an original 12-bolt axle that's coded as a March (03) 14th (14) Detroit Gear (G) unit equipped with an Eaton posi-trac differential (E) and 3.73 (BU) gears. That fully sorted driveline rides on a completely rebuilt suspension, which includes 4-piston, Corvette-style brakes. There's a beefy, true-dual exhaust system that hangs dual-chamber Flowmaster mufflers between an H-shaped crossover and polished turndowns. That exhaust system is backed by solid floors, which are layered in smooth, Satin Black paint. Those floors roll on 15-inch Rally Wheels, which spin 205/70R15 Michelin Defender redlines around dent-free trim rings and correct stainless center caps. And that chassis has, like the car's engine bay, been restored to fresh, road-ready condition.

THE STANDARD

According to this Camaro's restorer, the Standard Interior hiding behind the car's solid doors is mostly original equipment. A trio of pleated vinyl seats look and feel fantastic. In front of those seats, a stainless-trimmed dash, which exhibits no signs of warping or peeling, hangs rebuilt telemetry beside a correct Delco pushbutton radio. At the base of that dash, like-new carpet and monochromatic floor mats frame a tough Hurst shifter. That seat, dash and carpet trifecta is completely framed by a tight headliner, a clean package tray and pliable door panels. In front of the driver, a satin-spoke steering wheel laps a tasteful Camaro centerpiece. And behind the passengers, the car's solid trunk hides a correct mat beneath a full-size spare tire and correct decklid decals.

When it comes to history and desirability, this Z/28 is hard to beat! Its original 302 offers all the classic rumble you'd ever want. Its rugged Muncie 4-speed turns up the fun factor. And its Corvette Bronze livery provides unique and refreshing appeal. If you've been yearning for an awesome, investment grade pony car, your search is officially over!
