LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28.
Camaro was introduced in 1967 to attack the Mustang success. The first-generation Camaro lasted until this 1969 model year when it again paced the ‘69 Indianapolis 500. For 1969, Camaro had all-new sheet metal except the hood and trunk lid giving the car a substantially sportier look. The grille was redesigned with a heavy "V" can’t and deeply inset headlights. New door skins, rear quarter panels, and rear valance panel also gave the car a much lower, wider, more aggressive look. The wheel wells were flattened with sculptured feature lines flowing off towards the rear of the car and rear-slanting simulated air slots ahead of the rear wheel. The front had a full width chrome bumper integrated with the body color grille surround and round parking lights positioned on either side of the license plate. At the rear were wider tail light bezels with triple segment lenses. The interior was updated with square gauges and an optional tachometer. Perhaps the most special and iconic was the Z28 performance package that reflected Chevrolet’s entry in the SCCA Trans-Am race series. Z28 included a solid-lifter 302 V8, 4-Speed Manual Transmission, Power Disc Brakes, and two wide bold stripes down the hood and decklid. The styling, considered by many Camaro enthusiasts as the ultimate muscle car look and arguably the most popular, would serve for the 1969 model year only.
This stunning 1969 Camaro Z28 was built in the Norwood, Ohio plant and comes wearing the same classic and stunning Lemans Blue like it did from the assembly line. Like all factory Z/28 Camaros they came powered by the DZ 302 that produces 290hp at 5800 rpm. The high-revving 302 is backed by the M21 4-Speed close ratio transmission mated to a Hurst Shifter and put to the ground with a code G80 Posi-traction rear axle having a 3.73 Ratio. Performance is delivered to the raised white lettered Goodyear’s bias-ply tires mounted on Rallye Wheels which adds to the stylish competition look. The paint has been wet sanded and polished to a show quality like luster. Inside this beautiful Z28, is trim Code 711 Black Vinyl Bucket Seat Interior as noted on the cowl tag which is one of the most stylish cockpits of the muscle era. Other options include endura front bumper, power steering, power front disc brakes, tachometer with center fuel gauge, ZL2 ducted hood, tilt column, front and rear spoiler equipment and am/fm radio.
The 1969 Camaro Z28 was one of the greatest performance packages of the classic muscle car era and showed what Chevrolet could create to go racing. With its racing heritage and pedigree, the Camaro Z28 will always be one of the most desirable Camaros built. Since completion the car has been extremely well cared for and only few miles since.
