VERY CLEAN Z/28 TRIBUTE, BUILT 350CI, 4 SPEED, VINTAGE A/C, GREAT PAINT
Sure, you can make your mullet jokes, but the fact is, second-generation Camaros are red hot right now, and this awesome 1970 Z/28 tribute is a spectacular resto-mod that definitely brings the heat. With a 360 horsepower engine, a 4-speed manual gearbox, and that timeless look, this is the Z/28 for guys who love to drive.
The government hadn't yet gotten around to emasculating the muscle cars in 1970, and there wasn't a better-handling American car on the market than the Z/28 Camaro. Finished in brilliant Daytona Yellow with black SS stripes, it's definitely in-your-face, but it backs up the look with all the right hardware. Workmanship is very good-you can see how straight this one is just from the photos and the reflections in the surface suggest someone sanded that bodywork until their fingers bled. You can get a better idea of how carefully assembled this one is by checking the alignment of the deck lid spoiler, which fits better than even the factory could manage. The aggressive look is certainly helped by the chin spoiler up front as well as the blacked-out grille that had been a part of Chevy's performance look for years. Chrome is excellent, the Z/28 badges have been fitted in all the right places, and nothing looks better than a Camaro with stripes.
The all-new Camaro interior was a slam-dunk in 1970, and this car's modifications put it over the top. The original buckets remain, now fitted with new seat covers in the original materials and patterns – after all, it's hard to do it better than the factory. The wrap-around instrument panel still carries the factory gauges, but a set of auxiliary gauges have been very professionally installed in the lower valence and there's a white-faced Sunpro tach on the steering column. Steering is via the original wheel and that Hurst shifter looks right at home, complete with white cue ball shifter. The factory radio is gone, replaced by a Sony AM/FM/CD head unit and the A/C system has been upgraded with modern components and controls that neatly replace the originals in the dash. You'll also be pleased to find a full-sized spare and jack assembly in the trunk, which appears to wear its original spatter-finish paint.
Take a look under the hood and it looks fairly factory-correct, doesn't it? The good news in 1970 was the arrival of 350 cubic inches for the Z/28, and this car now sports a recently rebuilt small block that cranks out an impressive 360 horsepower. Upgrades include aluminum heads, Edelbrock intake, a Carter AFB carburetor, and long-tube headers for a nice, fat torque curve. A chrome air cleaner with proper decals and matching chrome valve covers brighten up the black engine bay. It's backed by a 4-speed manual transmission and a 10-bolt rear with 4.56 gears inside, so you'll undoubtedly discover that there aren't many cars on the road today that can keep up with this F-body. The recent dual exhaust system with turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle sounds downright predatory and it rolls on a set of fantastic factory wheels with charcoal centers with staggered 235/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear Dunlop radials.
Second-generation Camaros have crossed over from runners-up to legitimate collectables, and this bright yellow Z/28 packs a few surprises, too. Call today!
