CORRECT COLORS, PROTECT-O-PLATE, CORRECT CTB 350CI MOTOR, VERY CLEAN Z/28
To answer your first question, yes, this is a real Z/28. To answer your second question, it appears that the owner has somewhat more than the asking price invested in the restoration. Finished in brilliant Forest Green paint, this awesome 1970 Z/28 also features a date-code correct 350, a 4-speed manual transmission, and enough details to keep you interested for years.
The body was professionally refinished, and all of the metalwork is masterfully done with a seamless blend of old and new components. We've always been fond of the way subtle colors work on high-performance cars, with the handsome Forest Green finish keeping this high-performance F-body off the radar. All the unique Z/28 details were retained, including front and rear spoilers and all the correct badging. And, of course, there are those white stripes which instantly identify this Camaro as something special. The paint is very nicely done with first-rate fit and finish, although it does show a few signs of use and age, as you'd expect. Up front there's a correct blacked-out grille bisected by a slender chrome bumper, while out back four round taillights make the second-generation Camaro instantly recognizable from a distance.
A mixture of original equipment with a few upgrades greets you inside. The Saddle tan buckets have been fully restored with fresh foam and new covers, which match the fresh door panels perfectly. New carpets make it look showroom fresh, and the dash pad is unblemished, and we have to say that the light color really makes the interior feel spacious and clean. Factory gauges include a correct tachometer and the wrap-around instrument panel uses a proper "camera case" finish. This car also includes a functional AM radio in the center of the dash and a 4-speed Hurst cue ball to manage the transmission underneath. The rear seats look almost completely unused and the black rubber floor mats were the right choice to work with the dark dash and console. Under that cool deck lid spoiler is a restored trunk complete with a new mat, full-sized spare, and spatter finish paint.
The engine is a period-correct 350 cubic inch V8 that may very well be this car's original, numbers-matching engine. The engine bay is nicely detailed with Chevy Orange paint on the engine, bright chrome on the dual snorkel air cleaner, and a set of finned aluminum valve covers that are a Z/28 trademark. Other correct details include properly stamped reproduction hoses, tower hose clamps, and cast iron exhaust manifolds feeding a brand new exhaust system with a correct transverse muffler. The 4-speed gives the Z/28 that immediate, hands-on feel and was the only way you could get the high-output small block motor. Out back, a set of 3.73 gears and a Posi in the 12-bolt are the ideal dance partners, delivering snappy acceleration that never gets boring. The undercarriage is original and in decent condition, although not detailed for show, and it rolls on a set of handsome Z/28 wheels with charcoal gray centers and recent 235/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Someone spent an awful lot of money on this Z/28, endowing it with a classic performance look that stands out because it's unusual. We don't often see second-generation Camaros this nice, so don't miss this opportunity, call now!
