Every list of the greatest, classic American Muscle Cars has a Camaro Z28 among the top slots. Chevy’s formidable answer to Ford’s popular Chevy Mustang, the first-generation Camaro Z28s are iconic, powerful and only continue to appreciate in value with time. The Z28 was released in 1967, along with the standard Camaro, and initially was a slow starter. Around the same time, the Trans Am Championship was really starting to pick up steam as the premiere racing series in America. As the Camaro Z28 won the title in 1968 and 1969, the lesser-known, alluring pavement-eater became an overnight sensation. Today, Camaro lovers are as dedicated as they are abundant, but it’s the first-generation Z28s that remain the ultimate collector car in the prolific line-up.

The 1969 Z28 was equipped with a 302 cubic-inch V-8, just under the ceiling for Trans Am racing, with a single Holley four-barrel 800 cfm carburetor. Although the horsepower was conservatively rated at 290 horsepower at 5800 rpm, reliable Dynamometer tests rate it closer to 400. With power steering, handling was incredibly precise for such a powerful engine. This was backed by a Muncie four-speed transmission and Hurst shifter, power-assisted front disc brakes and rear drums, a heavy-duty independent as well as single lateral arm front suspension with coil spring and tube shocks coupled with a Salisbury rear axle with multi leaf springs and staggered tube shocks in the rear.

Sculpted with a captivating long hood, short deck, a gracefully curved hardtop and concluding in those distinguishable rectangular taillights beneath a nuanced spoiler, the 1969 Z28 is an inimitable classic. To take it all a step further, this date-coded, numbers matching example is truly without rival and fits together more seamlessly than the day it rolled off the factory floor. With a meticulous, frame-up restoration that included every last nut and bolt, this is the most pristine, numbers matching Z28 you will find on or off the market. Further, it was certified by Jerry MacNeish, the foremost Camaro expert in the country and boasts less than 100 miles since restoration. Draped in uber classic Le Mans Blue with white racing stripes and matching, correct reupholstered white seats as well as a woodgrain steering wheel and special option tachometer, this beauty is precisely what the iconic 1969 Camaro Z28 should look like and it drives as well as it looks.
