In the world of muscle cars every manufacturer started introducing
different trim levels which combined mostly performance focused
options. For instance with Mustangs you had the Shelby GT 350 and
GT 500. While there may be some cosmetic differences the main focus
stuck with the overall muscle car theme of packing in as much
performance as possible for competitions. Chevrolet's entry onto
the field for its first generation of Camaros was the RS, SS and
primarily the Z28. The Z28 was designed specifically for the SCCA
Trans Am Series. They designed the DZ 302 motor to come in under
the 305 ci limitation and these motors went on to reach legendary
status. They achieved this by using a 327 ci block and a crankshaft
from a 283 ci motor resulting in a 302.4 ci displacement. The
primary purpose was to compete with the Mustang and the cars went
on to perform very well in NHRS drag racing and the SCCA Trans Am
series where it claimed the 1968 and 1969 Manufacturer's
Championship title. This pleased the developers vision of being
superior to the Mustang and these cars have become quite
collectable. Another unique thing about them was with the large
4.00 in bore and short 3.00 in stroke the engine could rev well
into the 7,000 rpm range. This made the small blocks design much
more reliable than its big block counter part while allowing it
higher horsepower potential. This extremely clean 1969 Z28 is in
great condition and the rebuilt motor runs extremely well. It is
paired with a 5 speed manual transmission and 12 bolt rear end. The
original 4 speed does come with the car. It also has power brakes
and power steering as well.
The body on this Camaro is very clean and painted in a nice combo
of its original Cortez Silver with dual Black racing stripes. It
has a rear deck spoiler and black front chin spoiler both of which
are in good condition. It has all of its correct Camaro, Z/28 and
302 badging in place on the body, grill and cowl hood. The front
and rear chrome bumpers are in great condition with a nice shine.
All of the exterior electrical is working correctly with no issues.
The glass has a slight tint and no chips or cracks. Overall it is a
very clean car throughout. The original Rally wheels look great and
are wrapped with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires with plenty of

The interior has been restored in its original Black color and is
very stock. It has its factory bucket seats and original console
which houses the Hurst shifter and additional gauges. The door
panels, seats, headliner and carpet all look great along with the
Z/28 floor mats. The dash and dash pad are in great condition and
the dash has been kept all original. The correct gauges are all
working properly including the in dash tachometer and the car was
also ordered with an 8 track player which is still in place. The
trunk has a nice original style mat and houses a jack and original
spare which still features its original Goodyear tire.
These Z28 302 cars are very sought after and this one is very
clean. The odometer reads 13,779 but it is unknown whether that is
original or if it has rolled over. If you are in the market for a
nice investment level collector car this is definitely one to check
