If you're a fan of style, speed and swagger, you simply can't go wrong with the legendary Camaro. One of the cars that practically defined the golden age of Detroit, Chevy's beloved panther has become some of the best-selling muscle of all time. Not surprisingly, demand for these cornerstone classics continues to be strong. And in the second half of 2015, we've already shipped NINE awesome Camaros to nine very satisfied owners. The beneficiary of a detailed rotisserie restoration, this real-deal X77 Z/28 is probably one of the coolest F1s we've ever offered. With a buff drivetrain, solid sheetmetal and exceptionally rare Azure Turquoise on Black aesthetics, it's the perfect turn-key muscle car for anyone who enjoys the hobby to its fullest. And if you're looking for an impressive set of wheels that'll roll straight out of the showroom and right in to the fast lane, it's your next classic!
Fresh out of a thorough rotisserie restoration, this super cool F-Body is a perfect blend of good craftsmanship and great attention to detail. With solid panels present and accounted for, the car was carefully straightened into better-than-new condition. Once that comprehensive metalwork transitioned from the garage bay to the paint booth, a classic '60s profile was re-sprayed in correct Azure Turquoise 2-stage. When that paint dried, it was accented with black Rally Stripes, sealed in glossy clear and buffed to a clean shine. And today, officially unleashed as the epitome of old school American style, this exclusive Z/28 is one seriously cool head turner that can drop jaws just as easily as it can win trophies.
With its timeless proportions and modernist panels, the first generation Camaro is an inherently attractive design. At the front of this clean F1, a silver-trimmed grille anchors a two-tone "Z/28" emblem between bright halogen headlights, a mirrored bumper, '69-exclusive parking lamps and a D80 chin spoiler. Above that grille, a Camaro-branded header leads the eye past a correct hood to like-new glass that's seated in straight stainless frames. At the sides of that glass, a small mirror combines with traditional door handles, fresh rocker trim, simple "Camaro" emblems and bright "Z/28" badges to detail the car's sculpted fuselage. And at the back of that fuselage, a Camaro-branded decklid hangs a second D80 spoiler above a fourth "Z/28" emblem, '69-exclusive taillights and a second mirrored bumper.
Under this coupe's Kansas-flat hood you'll find a 302 cubic inch, era-correct small block that fronts a familiar 3970010 casting number with a correct "DZ" assembly stamp. Straight from the factory, Chevrolet's high performance SCCA Mustang slayer utilized 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 in to a correct Winters intake thanks to a familiar Holley carburetor. At the sides of that intake, authentic 'double hump' heads hang finned valve covers over shielded exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those heads, a mandatory points distributor shoots spark through fresh Packard TV R Suppression cables. When fired, the infamous 302 snarls and barks like a real competition piece. Its ancillary components are top-notch in every way, with fresh GM hoses, a refinished brake booster and a reproduction Delco Energizer accompanying a rebuilt alternator and era-correct smog equipment. And an evenly sprayed combination of Chevy Orange skin and Satin Black framing is capped by full hood insulation.
Back in 1969, 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. Naturally, that stalwart gear slinger centers a correct 3925660 casting number between a Muncie (P) M21 (B) assembled on May (E) 5th (05), 1969 (9) build stamp and matching partial VIN. There's a correct 12-bolt rear end, which rides in a fully rebuilt and correctly tagged suspension that centers factory power steering between 4-piston, Corvette-style brakes. That suspension is dissected by a beefy, true-dual exhaust system, which is fitted with a correct, transversely mounted muffler. That exhaust system is framed by solid floors, which are layered in pristine, Satin Black paint. Those floors roll on 15-inch Rally Wheels, which spin modern 215/65 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around dent-free trim rings and correct turbine center caps. And that chassis has, like the car's engine bay, been restored to fully sorted, road-ready condition.
The Standard Black interior hiding behind this Camaro's small doors illustrates the true, no frills intentions of Chevrolet's original Z/28. Its pleated vinyl seats look and feel fantastic. In front of those seats, a monochromatic dash, which exhibits no signs of cracking or peeling, hangs a correct AC tachometer beside a correct Delco AM radio. At the base of that dash, a wood-trimmed console founds a chrome Hurst shifter behind factory 4-pack accessory gauges. That seat, dash and console trifecta is completely framed by a tight headliner, shielded carpet and correct Standard door panels. In front of the driver, a simple steering wheel laps a bright blue bowtie. And behind the passengers, the car's solid trunk hides a full-size spare tire beneath a fresh decklid decal.
To confirm the accuracy of this rare Chevy's restoration, I'll go ahead and break down both its VIN and cowl tag numbers.
