TRUE Z28, DZ 302, 4 SPEED, FRESH RESTORATION, 12 BOLT, FRONT DISCS, NICE!!
Looking at the collector car market over the past several years, it's obvious that there are few safer places to park some cash than in a 1969 Camaro of any kind. They aren't skyrocketing in value like the Hemis did, so you won't lose your shirt overnight, but buying a quality example like this 1969 Camaro Z/28 is about as safe as any investment gets. Few collector cars can deliver the same promise.
This beautifully restored Z/28 is finished in its original code 72 Hugger Orange with black stripes, and looks like a million bucks. The comprehensive restoration returned a solid original car to better-than-new condition in every way, with outstanding gaps and paint that would make a GM designer in 1969 weak in the knees. The restorer took no liberties, and everything is as it was when the car was delivered new, including the quarter panel trim, bright bumpers with oversized optional bumper guards, and the traditional ducktail spoiler out back. The cowl induction hood is a steel piece that remains fully functional, feeding the high-winding DZ 302 a steady diet of cool, clean air from the base of the windshield. The stripes follow the correct pattern, narrow at the front and wider at the rear so that they appear parallel when viewed from the front. All the chrome and stainless is fresh, and it wears correct badges in all the right places. The "B" in the code 72B exterior color is the black vinyl top, which was also removed and replaced so there are no wrinkles or popped seams and no signs of trouble underneath.
The code 720 orange houndstooth bucket seat interior is anything but basic, and it's quite rare to find it in anything but a Z11 pace car. Fresh seat covers, including the federally-mandated headrests, were installed when the car was restored, but with less than 60 miles since it was completed, everything is still very new inside. This car is loaded with options, including a lovely woodgrained center console with white-faced auxiliary gauges and a correct AC tach in the dash. There have been no deviations from stock in this high-point F-body, so that means the original AM radio remains in the dash, the stock steering wheel still manages the front wheels, and factory seat belts have been restored and re-webbed. In back, the spotless trunk offers correct spatter-finish paint and includes a reproduction mat and a full-sized spare tire assembly with jack.
The Z/28's legendary DZ-code 302 cubic inch V8 was created by stuffing a 283 crank inside a 327 block, and the over-square design means the Z loves to rev. Yes, this is a real DZ engine, period correct, but it is not a matching numbers block. Some of GM's best heads were installed up top to feed the snarling small block, and an oversized carburetor makes sure it doesn't starve. Expertly detailed for show, the engine bay shows Chevy Orange paint on the block, proper finned aluminum valve covers, and reproduction hoses and clamps throughout. Even the original exhaust manifolds were retained and coated, so they look just like they would have moments after rolling off the transporter. Power steering and power disc brakes make it easy to drive, and a highly detailed chassis will help bring home the trophies. All Z/28s were 4-speeds and this one has a rugged 12-bolt out back, as well as a correct transverse exhaust system and a new gas tank. Four brand new Rally wheels wear authentic reproduction F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval bias-ply tires that look period perfect on this Camaro.
Beautifully finished and an absolute blast to drive, this is an extremely high-quality Z/28 that probably counts as an investment but remains ready to drive. Don't miss this chance and call today!
