The Z28 could be ordered with an optional high output 5.0 liter engine (RPO code L69) that was rated at 190hp. It cam hooked to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four speed automatic transmission. That H.O. V8 was the most powerful carbureted engine offered in a Chevrolet. It had a higher lift, longer duration camshaft, retuned valve system and o.5:1 compression. The H.O. engine also had a specially calibrated Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor, dual snorkel cold air intake, large diameter exhaust and tailpipes and wide mouth catalytic converter.

I'm not a Camaro expert but I'm sure that somebody will come along who is and will be able to help you out.
It's unfortunate that Chevrolet didn't provide a breakdown of production numbers for their models. The only thing I know is that the Model year production of 1984 Camaro Z28s was 100,416

Whoops, I forgot to mention that if you post your VIN # here someone will probably be able to decode it for you.

Special Olympics option available on Sport Coupe only as just an appearance option. All these Sport Coupes were white. The package itself was comprised of striping and decals. It included a double blue/orange striping around the base of the car, pinstriping in the same colors along the upper body, and an "Olympic" style decal on the sail panels. There were 3,722 produced. Do you happen to have the build sheet for this car? I believe the RPO code will divulge whether or not this is a Special Olympic Camaro not the VIN.
