MACNEISH CERTIFIED, OVER $120K IN RESTORATION, GM FASTBURN 385 ENGINE, NICE!!
Aside from ultra-rare COPOs, the 1969 Z/28 has to be among the most desirable Camaros of all time. This extraordinary Fathom Green Camaro is a real-deal Z/28 documented by Jerry MacNeish, and it's been comprehensively restored to show standards with one particularly interesting trick up its sleeve. Read on and find out more!
Stealthy and insanely fast, this Camaro under-promises and over-delivers with its low-key color and high-performance attitude. Fathom Green is this car's original color and was expertly re-created in two-stage urethane when the car was restored just last year. White stripes are, of course, an important part of the Z/28 look, along with the requisite cowl-induction hood, chin spoiler, and the ducktail out back. Finish quality is extraordinary and this is undoubtedly one of the nicest Camaros we've ever featured, and as you'd expect at this level, it's very hard to find anything to fault. Panel gaps are exacting, the creases in the fenders are crisp, and all the badges were reinstalled perhaps more perfectly than the factory could manage. Beautiful chrome bumpers, polished stainless trim, and factory-correct detailing emphasize this car's show-worthy look. It's been driven about 2000 miles since it was completed, but it certainly doesn't show.
The matching Midnight Green interior is equally nice and a wonderful change from the usual black. This Z/28 is nicely optioned with a woodgrained steering wheel, matching center console, and factory gauge package mounted on the console itself. All the gauges except the speedometer are brand new; in fact, everything inside this car is brand new and expertly installed. There's zero evidence of use, even in the driver's seat area, and the overall look is extremely authentic. Heck, even the clock works! The center dash was fitted with an AM/FM radio, which is always a welcome upgrade on a car that you're going to want to drive, and rubber floor mats will help keep it looking new for years to come. The trunk was also refinished using correct spatter paint and a matching full-sized spare tire assembly with jack.
Although this is a documented Z/28, the original DZ-code 302 is missing and has been replaced with a burly 385 "Fastburn" crate motor. With aluminum heads, it's both lighter and more powerful than the original 302, and it has been fortified with a roller cam, Vortech intake manifold, a big Holley carb, and HEI ignition system, so it is an incredible runner. It also looks quite authentic, with bright Chevy Orange paint on the block, proper Z/28 air cleaner with functional ram air and decals, plus little stuff like the tower hose clamps and oversized pulleys on the accessories. The list of new components is extensive, and it has been driven just enough to ensure that all the kinks have been worked out. The transmission is a fully rebuilt Muncie 4-speed feeding a properly-spec'd G80 12-bolt with 3.73 gears on a Posi. The chassis is nicely detailed with gorgeous ceramic-coated Doug Thorley long-tube headers and a reproduction exhaust system, nicely finished floors, and new hardware throughout. Correct Rally wheels fill out the roster and wear 235/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Documented with a Jerry MacNeish certification, this stunning Z/28 is one of those cars that's simply beautiful to look at, but its true beauty doesn't become apparent until you take a turn behind the wheel. Call today!
