A sharp style and solid V8 power make this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro
Z/28 tribute quite an attractive coupe. So while you've got plenty
of power underfoot, we imagine you're going to be driving pretty
slow just so everyone can get a second glance.
When silver is done like it is here, it can't help but command
attention. The luster lets the light roll evenly across the
straight body panels to deliver a lasting admiration. When you have
nice bright paint, only the best brightwork will do. After all, the
chrome bumpers need to outshine the silver while still
complimenting it. So you can tell there has been a good investment
getting them to look mirror-like. There's a solid look right down
to the fundamentals like the trim and glass. But more than just a
quality coupe, you love this because it has the full performance
appearance of a Z/28. It gets all the right aggressive pieces with
the true cowl induction hood, chin splitter, correct badging, and
full-width rear spoiler. And the dual black racing stripes are
painted on top. The addition of competition style American Racing
wheels has a period-correct style while also giving you a more
modern and aggressive 17/18 inch front/rear stance.
We like it when the exterior stripes are a preview of what's
inside, and let's face it, a Z-car deserves an all-black interior.
It looks nice with the seats, dash, headliner, and carpeting that
show there has been a solid investment throughout. In fact,
everything from the wood-like trim to the clear gauges show a solid
attention to detail. You even have provisions R-134a for air
conditioning (it will need components and/or servicing to blow cold
again.) And as a proper Z/28 tribute, this is set up to be a good
driver's machine. That means front bucket seats with headrests, a
center console-in between, the classic horseshoe shifter, and
Chevy's three-spoke sports steering wheel.
Under the hood is a Chevy 307 cubic-inch V8 motor. It's quite close
in displacement to the 302ci units that were in the 1969 Z/28s. And
in fact, if you take off the decal on the air grabber, many people
might think you have an original setup. After all, you have the
correct ribbed valve covers and the gasket around the air filter
seals the unit to the fresh air cowl hood. Plus, just like the
Z/28, this V8 has been given some performance upgrades. It now
inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and an
Edelbrock intake. It fires up nicely and makes a sweet tune out of
the dual exhaust. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission and
power steering make for an easy driver. The power brakes with front
discs and the modern sport tires afforded by the wheel upgrade give
you added confidence out on the road.
This is the classic with a standout style and the kind of attitude
that wants to hit the road. So if you want to drive distinction,
don't miss this Z/28 tribute. Call now!
