ORIGINAL CANADIAN Z/28, #'S MATCHING DZ 302, PROTECT-O-PLATE AND DEALER INVOICE
Few muscle cars appeal to a wider audience than the 1969 Camaro Z/28. Whether it's the '69 Camaro's all-around good looks, the high-revving yet surprisingly torque 302, or the fact that it was built to homologate some of the most potent cars on the street, it's hard to say. Whatever your reason, you're sure to love this matching-numbers, Canada-bred Z.
Not all Z/28s are destined to be trailer queens, and that's a good thing since they're some of the most entertaining cars of the era out on the open road. According to the paperwork that accompanies this one, it is an authentic Canadian-market '69 Z/28 (one of only 6067 built, by the way) with its original, numbers-matching 302 cubic inch V8 (see photo). Restored in its original Fathom Green with white stripes paint scheme, it's one of the more subtle ways to enjoy such a potent muscle car. It includes the right cowl-induction hood with correct air cleaner and it is an original P80 spoiler car, so there's a ducktail out back, all covered in two-stage urethane paint. It's in very good condition overall with only some very minor signs of use, and I can almost guarantee you'll be the only guy with a documented Z/28 at the next cruise night. Other details include the chrome "gill" trim in the rear quarters and a bunch of proper Z/28 badges to advertise the hardware underneath.
The cowl tag calls for a medium green buckets, but during the restoration it received a more sporting set of black buckets instead. Replacement front seat covers work with nice-looking door panels and brand new carpets, which give the interior a very correct and welcoming look. An N34 woodgrained steering wheel was added during the restoration, and warms up the otherwise monochromatic interior. And who doesn't love the hardcore look of a 4-speed Hurst cue ball sticking out of the transmission tunnel like that? Obviously this one was built to go fast first and foremost, and we can all appreciate that, with the lone options inside being a radio and the tachometer. That original AM radio remains in the dash, but I'm guessing that with the way this car drives, you won't miss the upgraded stereo in your modern car. You'll also note that this car carries a new trunk mat that fits well and doesn't have the wrinkles you see in the cheap reproductions.
The secret to the Z/28's popularity is undoubtedly the 302 cubic inch small block that powered all the first-generation Zs. Docile and tractable around town, it's also happy to scream to its 6000 RPM redline without complaint and sounds magnificent doing it. This is the original, numbers-matching DZ-code block, rebuilt with a set of long-tube headers that definitely help bolster the torque curve. Correct Z/28 details include the finned valve covers, proper hoses and clamps, and even tower clamps on all the hoses. Chevy Orange paint on the block itself looks bright and fresh, particularly in the black engine bay, while the undercarriage may very well be original. Twin Flowmaster mufflers give it a fantastic engine note and the original close-ratio 4-speed and heavy-duty 12-bolt Posi rear end are still in place. Shiny Rally wheels wear staggered 225/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear performance radials.
Heavily documented with the original dealer invoice, Protect-O-Plate, and other critical papers, this is a real-deal Z/28 you can drive and enjoy while protecting your investment. Call today!
