Description:

The best thing about being a Camaro fan is: through five generations and 47 years of cars, GM has continuously provided us with a variety of purpose-built performance packages that normally wouldn’t make it off the boardroom floor. And today, when it comes to high dollar classics, you simply can’t go wrong with a first generation Z/28. Pedigreed, well-done small block cars continue to be some of the hottest selling metal on the market. And this documented, investment grade Z/28 has all the right ingredients to bring big value and even bigger appeal. For starters, it’s an authentic Matador Red car which features a correct Red interior. It also packs a correct 302 that’s equipped with a rare cross ram intake. AND it rows power through a tough Muncie 4-speed and correct 4.56 gears. If you’re in the market for a restoration-fresh collector car that you can enjoy and build equity in, this slick F1 demands your full attention!

We''ll start by breaking down the car''s basics.

The beneficiary of a professional, rotisserie restoration that included $38K of paint and body work, this vivid panther simply glistens under our bright showroom lights. Craig Hopkins, of Cleveland, Georgia''s AMD Installation Center, put a lot of effort into making sure the car’s body is extremely straight. That time was well spent, as excellent panel gaps perfectly center hinged pieces which move freely and close with solidity. And those pieces are bathed in DuPont Matador Red two-stage that’s been dressed with Tuxedo Black war paint and buffed to a spectacular shine.

When it comes to purity of form, I can’t really think of a better looking car than Chevrolet’s 60s-era Camaro. It’s a solid and straightforward design that continues to age exceptionally well, especially in the company of its exaggerated and extroverted competitors. At the front of this super cool F1, a pristine Rally Sport grille centers a stacked “RS” badge and bright halogen headlights between a spotless bumper, clear parking lamps and a small header script. At the top of that grille, a flat hood reflects a sweet combination of like-new glass, mirrored stainless frames and fresh black vinyl. At the sides of that hood, a monochromatic profile hangs prominent “Z/28” emblems and blocky “rally sport” scripts between familiar door handles, RS rocker trim and a correct chrome mirror. And at the back of the car, a small trunk script and second spotless bumper frame bright reverse lamps, ‘68 Camaro-exclusive tail lights, and an “RS” branded fuel filler.

Hoist this classic’s solid steel hood and you’ll be delighted to find a rare Winters cross ram on top of a correct, 302 cubic inch high performance V8. Fresh from Precision Engines LLC, that fully balanced mill utilizes a forged SCAT crank, forged SCAT rods, SRP pistons and a Bullet Trans Am-spec cam to twist stout 11 to 1 compression into 344 dyno-proven horsepower! At the top of the red hot small block, beefy Holley carburetors mix fuel from fresh stainless fluid lines with oxygen that’s piped through a chrome, cowl-fed air cleaner. Behind those carburetors, modern electronic ignition sequences spark through fresh Packard TV R Suppression Cables. And at the sides of that ignition, authentic ‘double hump’ heads hang bright chrome valve covers over roller tip rocker arms and professionally restored exhaust manifolds. When fired, the infamous V8 snarls and barks like a real competition piece. Its ancillary components are top-notch in every way, with fresh GM hoses and a correct Delco Moraine brake booster accompanying a reproduction Delco battery. And an even combination of Chevy Orange engine skin and Satin Black fender framing is accented by clean and appropriate decals.

Back in 1968, the best set up the Camaro offered was a tough Muncie transmission and track-worthy 4.56 rear end. This coupe’s correct 4-speed, which is equipped with a fresh clutch and flywheel, twists a shortened A-Body pumpkin that’s packed with new Moser axles, a proven Eaton posi and 4.56 Richmond gears. That first-rate drivetrain is held off the ground by a completely rebuilt, high performance suspension, which includes 4-piston, Corvette-style brakes, tuned front coils, multi-leaf rears and reproduction shocks. That suspension is dissected by an aluminized, true-dual exhaust system, which is fitted with a correct, transversely mounted muffler. That exhaust system is framed by clean floors which perfectly highlight a new stainless fuel tank, fresh stainless fluid lines and a variety of chip-free chassis components. Those floors roll on 15-inch Rally wheels, which spin E70-15 Goodyear Wide Tread GTs around correct stainless center caps and dent-free trim rings. And while this Rally Sport has, to our knowledge, never been shown, it would certainly fare well hovering over a quartet of undercarriage mirrors.

The Standard Red interior hiding behind this car’s small red doors illustrates the true, no frills intentions of Chevrolet’s hallowed Z/28. Its bucket seats were restored with new backs, new foam and reproduction covers that look and feel fantastic. In front of those seats a stainless-trimmed dash, which exhibits no signs of warping or peeling, hangs rebuilt telemetry above a clean radio delete. At the base of that dash, great looking carpet centers a chrome Hurst shifter between four color-keyed floor mats. That seat, dash and flooring trifecta is framed by a tight headliner and standard, stainless-trimmed door panels. In front of the driver, Chevrolet’s classy Rosewood steering wheel spins satin spokes around a red, white and blue centerpiece. And behind the passengers, the car’s solid trunk has been correctly restored with new paint, a new mat, fresh decals and a full-size spare tire.

The sale of this first class F-Body includes:

* An original Protect-O-Plate
* A vintage window sticker
* Pre-restoration photos
* Restoration photos
* Restoration receipts
* Official dyno sheets

Early Z/28s are certainly rare, and “IMPRESSIVE” is one word that definitely describes this car. Given the crop of clones and fakes that popped up as the marque gained popularity, having a documented, correct example is precisely what separates the enthusiasts from the fans. If you want a pony car that’ll draw a crowd for reasons other than bright paint and aftermarket badges, this investment grade F1 is exactly what you’re looking for!
