AutoHunter Spotlight: 1969 Camaro Z/28

The mouse that roared

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1969 Camaro Z/28. Like all of them, it is powered by a numbers-matching Turbo-Fire 302 V8 backed by a four-speed manual, also numbers-matching. Features include Cowl Induction hood, Z21 Exterior Style Trim Group, rear spoiler, center console, instrumentation, Positraction, power brakes, custom X-pipe exhaust, and more. Painted Burgundy with white stripes and black and white vinyl and houndstooth cloth interior, this Z/28 comes with pre-restoration photos and receipts, documentation, Jerry MacNeish Certificate of Authenticity and appraisal, and a clear title.

This Camaro Z/28 was originally built with code 57 Fathom Green with white stripes, but the previous owner’s uncle had one in Burgundy back in the day, so this vehicle was repainted in that hue as a homage. Features include front and rear spoilers, fender-mounted antenna, left-hand side-view mirror, and rocker moldings and wheel-opening trim.

Chevrolet Rally wheels are wrapped in Goodyear Speedway Wide GT bias-ply tires.

The interior was originally code 721 Medium Green vinyl but has been changed to black vinyl and white houndstooth cloth, again as a homage to a previous owner’s uncle’s car. Other features include center console with Hurst shifter, manual steering, and AM radio.

The instrument panel consists of a 120-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, clock, and console-mounted gauges for the fuel level, water temperature, oil pressure, and battery. Odometer shows 99,655 miles.

The numbers-matching 302 small-block features the original distributor and radiator. There are several subtle modifications and additions to the engine, which include Cowl Induction, voltage regulator, water pump, coil, bell housing, plus several other items that are listed in the auction listing. The transmission is the original wide-ratio M20 four-speed manual.

The 1969 Camaro Z/28 featured an independent front suspension with four-leaf rear springs and solid rear-drive axle. Gearing is 3.73 with Positraction. Braking consists of power-assisted rear drums and front discs. There are several modifications that include a fuel line spliced on the right-side frame rail, larger front sway bar, and custom X-pipe with Borla mufflers, among others.

The auction for this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 ends Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at 11:30 a.m. (PDT).

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
