Looking at the collector car market over the past several years, it's obvious that there are few safer places to park some cash than in a 1969 Camaro of any kind. But if it's muscle car royalty that you're after, it doesn't get much better than a car like this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. With a date code correct 302 DZ V8 mated to a Muncie 4-speed manual and wearing a diabolical Tuxedo Black-on-black color combination, this real-deal Z/28 looks is an absolute slam-dunk. These cars have been red hot for some time, and when an opportunity to grab one in great colors with a bulletproof pedigree comes up, well, isn't it time you owned your dream car?
This beautifully restored Z/28 was comprehensively restored to NCRS standards back in the late-1990's (and we have a very heavy ring binder full of provenance and build docs to prove it), and it's been so well-cared for and loved it's still an absolute stunner in person. Finished in Tuxedo Black and White stripes, a huge upgrade over the car's original Code 61 Burnished Brown, it's the epitome of what people imagine when they think about a 1st generation Z/28. After almost three decades, it's starting to show some of its age, with minor imperfections acquired through the years and signs of older prep-work becoming a bit more visible than when the car was fresh, but this car still presents very well despite some of those demerits. It's a higher-end, driver-quality ride that looks much younger than the build date would suggest, with a straight body, tight lines, and great gaps providing the background to the deep, shiny finish. Other than the color change, the restorers took no liberties, and everything is pretty much as it was when the car was delivered new, including the egg-crate grille, chin spoiler, bright bumpers with oversized optional bumper guards, and the traditional ducktail spoiler out back. The cowl induction hood is a steel piece that remains functional, feeding the high-winding 302 a steady diet of cool, clean air from the base of the windshield. The white stripes follow the Z/28 correct pattern, narrow at the front and wider at the rear so that they appear parallel when viewed from the front. All the chrome and stainless is polished up, and it wears correct badges in all the right places.
The code 711 Black Vinyl bucket seat interior is anything but basic, and the black-on-black combination is really the best choice for a vintage Z/28 (let the letters from the Cortez Silver fans roll in). Period-perfect seat covers, including the federally-mandated headrests, were installed when the car was restored, but with such great care spent keeping the interior in top-shape, everything still looks and feels fresh inside. This car has several choice options, including a lovely woodgrained center console filled with white-faced auxiliary gauges at the mast, and the factory gauges just beyond that gorgeous Rosewood steering wheel feature a correct AC tach with a 6000 RPM redline. There have been no real deviations from stock in this high-point F-body, which means even the Delco AM/FM radio remains in the dash and a polished Hurst shifter manages the gears, while period-perfect pieces like the plush black carpets, taut headliner, matching door panels, and super-clean rear seat prove that that nothing was overlooked in this build. In back, the spacious trunk offers correct spatter-finish paint and includes a reproduction mat and a full-sized spare tire assembly with jack.
The Z/28's legendary DZ-code 302 cubic inch V8 was created by stuffing a 283 crank inside a 327 block, and the over-square design means the Z loves to rev. Some of GM's best-flowing heads were installed up top to feed the snarling small block, and an oversized 4-barrel carburetor (rebuilt in 2019) makes sure it doesn't starve. Neatly detailed for show, the engine bay features Chevy Orange paint on the block, proper finned aluminum valve covers, and reproduction hoses and clamps throughout. Even the original exhaust manifolds were retained and left raw, so they look just like they would have moments after rolling off the transporter, and the black snorkeled air cleaner up top is the coupe de grace. All Z/28s were Muncie 4-speeds and this particular M20 hooks to a rugged 12-bolt out back with 3.73s inside, as well as a correct transverse dual exhaust system. The front end, all four springs, and master cylinder were rebuilt/replaced in the last handful of years, and in 2020 the engine was refreshed with a host maintenance items, meaning this Z/28 is ready for the road today. Shiny 15-inch Rally wheels wear proper Goodyear Wide Tread GT white-letter tires, finishing off the period-perfect presentation in a big way.
Beautifully finished and an absolute blast to drive, this is a high-quality Z/28 that probably counts as an investment but remains ready to drive. Don't miss this chance, call today!
