AutoHunter Spotlight: 1970 Camaro Z/28-RS

The sophisticate for ‘70


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1970 Camaro Z/28-RS sport coupe. It was restored in 2010 and the current owner has had the Camaro in his possession for the past five years. Power comes from an LT1 350ci V8 backed by a M22 four-speed manual with Hurst shifter. Features include Rally Sport package, AM/FM radio and COPO spoiler. Finished in Citrus Green with black stripes over dark green vinyl interior, this 1970 Camaro Z/28-RS comes with several original and miscellaneous parts plus the build sheet and a clear Pennsylvania title in the seller’s name.

During the 2010 restoration, the exterior was refinished in the original Citrus Green (code 43) and accented with black stripes. Exterior features include color-keyed Endura grille surround (part of the RS trim), aftermarket cowl induction hood, color-keyed mirrors, manual remote driver-side mirror and COPO 9697 rear spoiler. The seller states that the trunk lid does not stay open on its own.

A set of 15-inch five-spoke Cragar S/S wheels is wrapped in Goodyear Eagle GT II radials.

The interior is upholstered in dark green vinyl (code 724). Features include AM/FM stereo, three-spoke steering wheel, center console with Hurst shifter, and power steering and power brakes.

The seller states that all gauges are functional. A 150-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, clock and readouts for the fuel level, coolant temperature and amperage are located on the instrument panel. The odometer shows 25,570 miles, which the seller reports to be accurate.

Power is provided by the reportedly original LT1 350ci V8 and backed by a Muncie M22 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter. Engine bay features include chrome valve covers, aluminum intake, Holley carburetor, chrome air cleaner, MSD ignition and tube exhaust headers. The gallery on the auction page contains a picture of the engine stamps.

This Camaro is equipped with an independent front suspension and 12-bolt rear end with 3.73:1 gears. Braking is handled by power front discs and rear drums. A full-length dual exhaust system exits at the rear.

The seller will include the original hood, wheels, steering wheel and other miscellaneous parts with the sale, including the original build sheet.

  1. I like the car very much.

    My dad provided me with loads and loads of old Motortrend mags when I was just 10, 11, 12,… years old. From around 1966-1973.
    Oh my god! I became a true hotrod fanatic.
    This car reminds me of those days. I’m 55 now.

    What do you like most about this car?

  2. Get that original flat hood (that’s in storage) on it’s SIDE!!! Stacking them on their backs/bottoms/ CORNERS is a definite NO NO! 🤷

  3. My brother had the EXACT same set up (different color; Kelly green/white stripes) absolutely the FASTEST car I ever drove! (one time only) black interior, different grille and spoiler. His was considered a “70- 1/2” because of a work stoppage or some other issue. Came out mid-year.

    • The Camaro was introduced in January or February 1970, while the 1969 was produced through December 1969. However, the brochure calls this 1970 so we went with that.

      • The ’69 Camaro was kept in production longer, almost producing a quarter million copies, for the all-new ’70½ model was delayed until February debut.

  4. If I only knew then

    Nice work On a job that must have taken more than a littlr elbow grease!The Rockcrusher is the most important option in my opinion it was legendary

  5. You could have a Z28 in three different greens and black or white stripes except with vinyl or painted roof @ $786.75. I forgotten that AC was not available on a Z28. This example is pretty much how it would be seen on the streets, Cragar SS chrome, staggered front to rear. But the sound of the 330hp 350 Turbo Fire; it had a killer grinding growl. Steering wheel is a really nice touch.
