The legendary Z/28 was a particularly nasty piece of hardware from GM, and it's no surprise that collectors are snatching them up as quickly as they show up on the market today. 1969 models like this awesome Dusk Blue specimen are the most highly sought of all, and it's easy to see why they're so popular.
With values skyrocketing on these cars, more and more of them are getting rotisserie restorations, which dooms them to a life of watching the fast lane from inside a trailer, and that's really a shame. Fortunately, there are some rare examples out there (this one, for example) that look fantastic, yet haven't been restored to a level where you're afraid to look at it with dirt in your eye. The cowl tag says this one was originally Fathom Green, but the Dusk Blue looks amazing with the white stripes that made these cars famous. Finish quality is quite good, from the cowl-induction hood to the ducktail spoiler, and it's obvious that this one has been loved. Chrome looks fresh off the assembly line, and it's loaded with details like the bright wheelwell moldings and gill inserts on the quarters.
We were very pleasantly surprised to see the blue bucket seat interior inside this coupe, since most of them got regular old black. Like the body's color change, this one is definitely for the better, creating an unusual look that's upscale and classic, but stands apart from the other '69 Camaros you're likely to see. Everything is new, from the door panels to the carpets, and the workmanship is first rate with no signs of the original green interior color. There's also a lovely rosewood steering wheel, Rally gauges on the console, and a cue ball shifter atop the M-21 4-speed. Gauges are in excellent condition, including the correct AC tach and the original AM radio remains in the dash and works as it should. An X33 code Z/28 with a high-quality restoration always looks good, and this one wears it nicely. Even the trunk sports a correct mat, which may very well be the original piece.
The engine is a correct DZ-code 302, rebuilt to stock specs and ready to rumble. That engine is a big part of why all Z/28s are special, and why this one in particular stands out. Run it up to the 7000 RPM redline and enjoy the ride, because you aren't risking an unobtainable piece of history-I guarantee you'll grin like an escaped lunatic when you grab second gear. It looks highly correct, with finned valve covers, orange paint, and proper pulleys on the accessory drive. An MSD ignition helps light the fires at high RPM, and a Flowmaster exhaust system gives it a ferocious snarl at speed. Correct Rally wheels now wear fat 235/60/15 BFG radials, making it a pleasure to drive.
