Here it is, the one you've been waiting for. It's a real-deal Z/28,
but it's also one that you can actually drive. Better yet, it's,
clean, beautifully restored, and with a cross-ram dual quad setup,
it delivers the visceral thrill that the track-bred racer is famous
for. If you like to drive, this is the Z you should own.
Tuxedo Black might be subtle on a high-impact car like this, but when you add the white Z/28 stripes, it becomes altogether more menacing. Everything you need to know about this car is summed up with the grille badge that reads Z/28: it's fast, it looks awesome, and with great balance it is a fantastic handler when the road starts to twist. And as a real Z/28, it was definitely worthy of a high-quality restoration that resulted in a very slick paint job that looks right on the car. A cowl induction hood plus front and rear spoilers certainly help the look, and with the RS package that includes hidden headlights and different taillights, it's definitely got a unique look. It's not over-restored like the trailer queens, but rather just right for a car that's going to see some street time, which is really what this car was built for. Other items that make the '69 Camaro so popular can be found here, too, including the "gill" inserts on the rear quarters and a beautiful black vinyl top that looks brand new.
The handsome black and white houndstooth interior is a very refreshing change from the same-old, same-old, and the contrast between the two-tone seats and black carpets and dash is simply stunning. Obviously the seat covers are new, as are the carpets, the door panels, and the dash pad; everything was replaced during the restoration. The beautiful steering wheel with its warm wood rim is a big upgrade over the plastic factory piece, giving it the European-inspired look that GM was aiming for with the Z. You also get a correct AC tach (which was an option, oddly enough), plus a console with white-faced auxiliary gauges. A 4-speed was the only way you could get your high-revving Z/28, and there's a Hurst cue ball shifter to manage it. You can skip the radio, because there is none, and the trunk is neatly finished with a correct mat and a full-sized Rally wheel as a spare.
The engine is a correct Z/28 302 cubic inch V8, fitted with the ultra-rare and desirable Winters aluminum Cross Ram intake manifold and Holley 600 CFM carburetors. That unique air cleaner makes it easy to spot and keeps the cowl-induction system fully functional, and you can run it up to 6500 RPM and enjoy the symphony that the burly DZ-coded 302 delivers. It's dressed right, with Chevy Orange paint and those lovely finned valve covers, so you'll be eager to pop the hood and prove it's a real-deal Z. This also has the very rare JL-8 four wheel power disc brake option. Add a rare optioned rear sway bar and power steering to that and you get a wonderful driver no matter how fast you're going, and with factory tube headers this snarling small block makes surprising torque. The undercarriage is as nice as the rest of the car, showing very few miles on the restoration, and it looks to have the Z21 Style Package which includes body color matching bumpers and rides on factory Rally wheels with E70-15 Goodyear GT Wide Tread bias-ply tires all around.
Great colors, a spectacular restoration, the Cross-Ram induction, and a strong pedigree make this Camaro an A-list celebrity. Don't miss your chance and call today!
