Out of all of Chevrolet’s high-performance option codes and packages available for the first-generation Camaro models, few carry the same legendary cachet as RPO Z28 and RPO ZL1. Having left the assembly line as a Z/28, this early-production, California-built Hugger Orange Camaro combines the best of both worlds today. Originally titled in Nevada, this ’69 Camaro was purchased by the consignor in Arizona during 2006. A full rotisserie restoration was completed in 2013, with the car retaining its original body panels including the floor, trunk pan, quarters, doors, fenders, hood, bumpers, rocker panels, frame rails, and subframe. The exterior is finished in a DuPont Base/Clear system and the undercarriage is finished in a combination of powder coat and DuPont products, as needed, to duplicate or exceed this Camaro’s original look and finish. As completed, this car shows fantastic fit and finish with flawless bodylines. Since the drivetrain was missing when the Camaro was purchased, the consignor opted to build this Z/28 to ZL1 specifications, beginning with a standard-bore aluminum 427 cubic-inch GM with 12:1 compression. The 115-cc, open-chamber ‘074’ heads are dated 12.4.68 and 12.18.68. Other engine features include a solid-lifter flat-tappet cam; 850 CFM Holley carburetor, without a choke, plus a smog system and chambered exhaust system. Pete Teasdale, of Jonestown, Pennsylvania’s Teasdale Automotive, professionally built, balanced, and blueprinted this engine, which was dyno-tuned by Baker Outlaw Fuel Systems and produces well over 500 horsepower on 93-Octane pump gas. The massive power is sent to the rear wheels through a Centerforce dual-friction clutch, Muncie M22 “Rock Crusher” four-speed transmission, and finally to the 12-bolt 4.10:1 rear axle equipped with Positraction. The engine is cooled by an original 4-core “curved-neck” radiator, complete with the correct fan blade and fan clutch. The Camaro’s suspension was finished off with factory-replacement spiral shocks, power disc brakes, five correct Goodyear tires, “poverty” caps, and painted steel wheels. The completely restored interior includes new seat covers, a new headliner, new door panels, and a restored AM radio. The level of detail and finish on this car simply cannot be conveyed in photos – it is a “must-see” car – with over 1,500 hours invested in its restoration. Only 75 miles have been covered since the restoration and build of this Camaro has been completed, and this beauty runs and drives as good as it looks!
