This is a real-deal 1969 Camaro Z/28 with a great color combination, and the ultra-desirable RS package.

Beautifully and expensively restored, it’s a prime example of the real-deal legend, but not quite a trailer queen that can never be enjoyed out in the open-air, and we’re quite certain you’ll have a hard time staying out of the driver’s seat. This is one heck of a driver!

Shockingly enough, this is an original code 69 Cortez Silver car and they kept it that way when the car was fully restored not long ago. Paint and bodywork are very nice, with virtually zero issues with prep or final finish, making this high-end Z/28 look absolutely spectacular. But it’s not like all the Hugger Orange cars out there, and 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 chin spoiler up front and a ducktail spoiler out back makes it look suitably racy and all the proper Z/28 badges are in place right where they’re supposed to be. Nobody will mistake this for anything other than what it is, and we’ve found that cars like this are always in demand.

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, and the rally gauge package ahead of the shifter. The original AM radio was swapped-in for a correct-looking AM/FM/Cassette unit, but if you want modern hardware it’s either time for an upgrade or maybe you just like it that way, because the song of the V8 is so much better than anything on the radio anyway. The woodgrain on the 3-spoke steering wheel, dash, and console is gorgeous and adds some warmth to the all-black interior, and the plush carpets below and taut headliner above finish off the cabin nicely. This car also sports a recent trunk mat that fits very well, plus a full-sized spare and jack assembly.

That is a professionally built 350 V8 under the hood, cackling and snarling like it should with hydraulic lifters and correct for Z/28 202 double hump heads. 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. A few other modifications make the most of the deep-breathing abilities, including a set of long-tube headers and a fresh-looking stainless-steel exhaust system with Flowmasters that sounds absolutely spine-tingling at full bore. The 4-speed Muncie M21 snaps through the gears with authority and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears and a Posi limited slip keeps up without complaint. Correct Rally wheels offer the right look and carry period-perfect E70-15 Goodyear Wide Tread GT bias-ply tires for an accurate look.
