By 1969, Chevrolet’s first-generation “F-Body” Camaro had truly come of age, with strong showroom sales strongly driven by its handsome styling, huge option list, and brilliant racing success. Conceived and built with development spearheaded by Chevrolet’s Vince Piggins as the GM Division’s new SCCA Trans Am racing contender, the RPO Z28 option package was quietly introduced for the Camaro in 1967 to homologate the car for racing. Careful refinements for 1968 and 1969 further enhanced the concept. At its heart, the Z/28 featured a high-winding and tough small-block V-8 engine, combining the basic dimensions of the 327-cid cylinder block and short-stroke 283 crank to yield 302 cubic-inches – just under the SCCA-mandated displacement limit for Trans Am racing. Highly developed underpinnings and other race-bred tweaks maximized the Z/28’s wildly factory-underrated horsepower.
All-out racing versions were most successfully campaigned by Penske Racing and piloted by star driver Mark Donohue to back-to-back SCCA Trans Am championships in 1968 and 1969 against the ferocious Bud Moore and Shelby-prepped Mustangs. Despite its road-racing intent, the Z/28 was also formidable on the dragstrip. According to a period Hot Rod magazine road test, the 1969 Z/28 was a solid 14-second car in stock trim with low-13s easily achieved with narrow slicks, lower rear-end gears (3.73:1 standard), open headers, and expert tuning. Gibb Chevrolet salesman Herb Fox was one of the first to drag-race the Z/28, with his famous “Little Hoss” ’67 car backed by Chevrolet and setting 14 world records over just one year in AHRA Top Stock. Dave Strickler’s famous Bill Jenkins-prepped “Old Reliable” Z/28 ran 11.70s in full-on Super Stock tune, going on to capture the 1968 NHRA Super Stock World Championship and confirming the vast potential of the Z/28’s small but mighty 302. For many, the 1969 Z/28 marks the ultimate evolution of the first-generation Camaro series with a thrilling driving experience, incomparable styling, and race-winning engineering.
The awesome product of a five-year expert restoration, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is accompanied by mulitple photo albums of images, meticulously documenting this car’s restoration and the veritable multitude of New Old Stock (NOS) Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts utilized during the painstaking process. Power is delivered by a correct ‘DZ’ Code 302 engine topped with a documented OEM original Cross-Ram intake manifold and dual four-barrel carburetors, all residing underneath an extremely rare OEM fiberglass hood and air-cleaner assembly and mated to a correct Muncie M22 “Rock Crusher” close-ratio four-speed manual transmission driving a 4.10:1 rear end assembly. Only OEM and NOS parts were used in the restoration, and the M22 transmission is both part-number and date-code correct. The healthy 302 engine’s cylinder block carries a ‘3956618’ Casting Number, A249 Date Code, ‘V0129DZ’ Stamping Code, and internals including a Second Edition ‘5754’ cam, ‘Blue Tip’ pushrods, and ‘2695’ valve lifters. All engine parts and components are photographed and documented. All window “fuzzies,” door and window seals, and weather stripping pieces are NOS items, documented by photographs and even the packaging they came in. Finished in correct Hugger Orange accented by white Rally stripes, the Z/28 rolls on a set of 1969 date-code-correct wheels with correct trim rings and hub caps, mounting a complete set of correct Goodyear Wide Tread GT tires, including the spare. As expected, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is documented and certified by well-known Camaro expert, Jerry MacNeish. One of the best-documented restorations on an original Z/28 you will find anywhere, this stellar example is investment-grade and as described by the consignor, an incredible performer.
