#'S MATCHING DZ 302 AND TRANS, HIDDEN COWL VIN MATCHES, GOOD SOLID DRIVER Z/28
This is it, your last chance. This is a real-deal 1969 Camaro Z/28 with matching numbers, all for an insanely affordable price. Now obviously it's not a trailer queen, but these are fast approaching six-figure territory, making this cool Z/28 RS a rather exciting find today.
Shockingly enough, this is an original code 72 Hugger Orange car that was repainted some years ago to a more subtle and stealthy Cortez Silver and I like it! Paint and bodywork are actually quite good save for a few marks on the hood, but you'll be having so much fun at 6000 RPM that you'll hardly give it a second thought. Even with black stripes, this is a very subtle hammer for prowling the streets and chances are that nobody will notice what a ferocious piece this is until it's way too late. A few dress-up pieces like the bright chrome bumpers, "gill" inserts on the quarter panels, and proper RS hidden headlights give it a precision look and the cowl induction hood is always a welcome option on a high-performance car like this. A ducktail spoiler out back makes it look suitably racy and all the proper Z/28 badges are in place.
Basic black has always suited the Camaro best, and with the Z/28's all-business attitude, the surroundings are ideally suited to high-performance driving. The buckets wear quality reproduction seat covers that are more defined then most and the door panels are nicely rendered with great bright trim. Lots of desirable options include a center console, factory tachometer and clock (it still works!), and the gauge package ahead of the shifter. Somewhere along the line, someone added a JVC AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit to the dash, but nothing was cut or damaged so going back to stock won't be a problem. Or maybe you just like it the way it is because the song of the 302 is so much better than anything on the radio anyway. Floor mats are there as a precaution and to keep the carpets in shape and that grab handle for the passenger is probably more useful in a Z/28 than any other Camaro. This car also sports a recent trunk mat that fits very well, plus a full-sized spare and jack assembly.
Experts will be pleased to note that the original, numbers-matching DZ-code 302 remains under the hood, cackling and snarling like it should. The bright Chevy Orange paint, finned valve covers, and functional cowl induction air cleaner all add to the performance air under the hood, and it's got all the correct little pieces, too. Check out the oversized pulley for the alternator, the factory intake and 4-barrel carburetor, and reproduction decals as needed. A few modifications make the most of the deep-breathing 302's abilities, including a set of long-tube headers and a fresh 2.5-inch exhaust system that sounds absolutely spine-tingling at full bore. The 4-speed snaps through the gears with authority and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end keeps up with the 302 without complaint. The underside hasn't been restored, which is partly why this car is so affordable, but few Camaros can match the driving experience of the Z/28, so you won't mind the dirt. Correct Rally wheels offer the right look and carry low-key blackwall radials for an even stealthier look.
This car gets the important stuff right and delivers it at an amazingly affordable price. It also sports the somewhat unknown hidden partial VIN on the cowl to further prove this cars collectability. We can guarantee this Z won't last long, so call today!
