This car was featured in the August 2022 article of Barn Finds.
This Z28 was delivered to Mall Chevrolet on December 22nd, 1971 after being built at GM’s Norwood Ohio assembly plant.
This car has had only two private owners (Chuck and Glen) since it was built in 1971! The odometer reading at under 35,000 miles is actual mileage. *The state of Indiana has very stringent or strict rules to allow a car of this age to show or retain its milege as Actual on the face of the title. Indiana will not put actual on the title just because you say its actual or because someone writes in low mileage on the title. Indiana will not accept even a legal odometer disclosure statement as “actual” by a prior owner. With that said most cars of this age are required to show mileage as exempt or not actual. Title History also substantiates the actual mileage of this car along with the State of Indiana validation of its actual status!

1972 was lowest production z28 of all time only 2575 unit outside of the 1967 z28 at 602 units. Comparision over 20,000 1969 z28s were built. This is a highly collectable car with the good color and options and less than 35,000 actual miles. Out of the 2575 very few were factory 4.10 rear axle cars with M21 close ratio 4 speed transmission! You may not be a Chevrolet person but this is a rare special car with only two past private owners since sold new and less than 35,000 actual miles. The car is well sorted in the engine, trans, rear axle, and suspension and is pleasure to drive with things working such as radio, key buzzer, heater, horn, tach and speedo and fuel guage when most of the time on these 50+ year old cars many of these items do not work. I installed the 1970 GM part number 3959456 forged dome Z28 pistons to the car’s engine–so this car will run right with the 1970 LT1 Z28–dare I say likely runs even better than most 1970 Z28s! The factory 4.10 CB rear axle really makes it go! These cars came from GM with 780cfm Holley 4 barrel carburetor on a high rise winters GM aluminum intake, factory 2.02/1.600 valve heads with factory spin studs and guide plates, forged steel nitrided crankshaft, forged pistons, and special forged “pink connecting rods”, high lift solid lifter camshaft, etc. This is the last year for the 8,000 rpm tach and 6500rpm redline for Z28 with high reving solid lifters. They are really neat cars and as mentioned very collectible with the 3 year only LT1 engine which GM only allowed to be installed in Z28 and Corvette only, and only for a limited period of time 1970-1972. This Z28 is Cranberry Red w/ Black Stripes. The car was Cranberry Red w/ Black stripes originally from GM and per its Code 75 YF8 on the trim tag. The casting date on the rear axle center section is E 5 1. This would decode as May 5th, 1971. The axle tube stamp is when the rear axle was assembled Julian date the 134th day of 1971 which was Friday May 14th, 9 days after the axle was cast!
