This is a real-deal 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 with its numbers-matching V8 under the hood.
And before you get completely weak in the knees, you also need to check out how this one was restored. The slick black paint gives it better attitude, and upgrades like the four-wheel disc brakes makes it a better all-around performer. There’s even air conditioning to make this hot Z-car a cooler ride. The result is a classic that retains its significance while also making sure you want to enjoy it every moment you get.
The black paint on this was an upgrade later in life. It represents part of a restoration investment that was all about taking a true Z/28 and maximizing all the best elements. So of course, you get a meaner black finish and some of the best body lines around to show it all off. The paint and restoration took place about two decades ago, but the superior condition today reaffirms quality care over the years. The rear bumper has mirror-like chrome, but the front bumper was color-matched. That’s so you get a full blackout front end that makes the headlights on this meaner Camaro look like the glowing eyes of a predator. There are even upgraded red brake calipers to let you know this one is out for blood. But even with upgrades, this never loses all the best high-performance ’69 Camaro pieces, like the cowl induction hood, full-width rear spoiler, and only real-deal Z-cars like this got to wear dual racing stripes from the factory. This idea of the right kind of upgrade is especially seen on the wheels. Those polished Cragar SS units are the kind of addition this Z/28 would have gotten on its first day off the Chevy lot in 1969. But they are also a larger 17-inch size, which means it’s easy to fit modern performance rubber.
The mean blackout continues inside. But an aggressive attitude doesn’t mean you’re missing out on style and comfort. So there have been the right investments here, including fresher carpeting. It has a terrific look with the deluxe interior that has correct details, like the full armrest door panels and wood-like dash trim. The seats are particularly noteworthy with desirable headrests and not even a button missing in the seatback. This is a coupe that you’ll want to enjoy showing off and driving, and so they made it more comfortable for modern times with the well-integrated upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And because this is a driver’s car, you have all the right features, including bucket seats, a center console with auxiliary gauge package, a tilt steering column, power steering, a large speedo and tach, and crisp-action Hurst shifter.
The engine is why the Z/28 is so special. The original, numbers-matching DZ-code 302 cubic-inch V8 is still in place. It keeps its style authentic everywhere from the finned valve covers to the gasket around the air intake to make sure this special V8 inhales fresh air from the cowl hood. These motors were built to be extra powerful, but that only gets better when it now exhales through long tube headers and an upgraded H-pipe dual exhaust. The full package is dialed-in to really make sure you get to full power of this real-deal Z/28. And the control is fully in you hand as the numbers-matching Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed stick feeds a stout 12-bolt rear end. To make sure this is a classic you can enjoy to the fullest there are also upgrades like modern/grippy sport tires and four-wheel disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
