This 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 shows all the right signs of a real-deal Z-car that has the best color and original V8. So check out all the details of a legendary mean four-speed coupe.
This was the first year for the second-gen Camaro, and so there are some exclusive features collectors love. For example, the factory-correct Hugger Orange paint is an icon of speedy Chevys, but it was only officially offered on this gen for this year. 1970 was still a time for chrome loves, and so it's nice to see a solid investment in newer brightwork, including the sharply-pointed front bumper and form-hugging rear one. The trim tag identifies this as a real-deal Z/28, and so it's the only one that gets to wear the painted white racing stripes with pride. Plus, you have all the other right aggressive details, like the blacked-out grille, deep chin spoiler, full-width rear spoiler, and all the proper Z/28 badging. The whole car really looks like a time capsule from 1970 right down to the details, like the steel gray Rally wheel package that debuted for the Camaro this year.
Inside, the factory-correct black interior looks like it was given plenty of attention during the car's restoration. Once again, you see 1970-only features like the low-back bucket seats. Plus, the upgraded AM/FM radio is useful but barely noticed in this highly-correct presentation because it's a retrosound unit. This feels like a driver's machine the moment you grab the Hurst shifter. The dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the large speedo and tach (and yes, this has the correct Z/28 higher redline unit.)
As a Z-car, it will excite you to know it has what's believed to be the original 350 cubic-inch V8 still under the hood. The block has some VIN verification and the has the correct CTB suffix code. This tidy setup has the look of authenticity everywhere - from the bold paint on the block to the "Keep Your GM Car All GM" decal on the air topper. More than just a terrific presentation, you want this Z/28 because it knows how to move. These were built to dominate the Trans Am series, so you get a big four-barrel carburetor, solid lifters, and higher compression (another 1970-only desirable feature.) And the Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission is not only the numbers-matching unit, but also its close ratio setup gives you ideal control over the power. It feeds a 12-bolt Positraction rear end with 4.11 gears for powerful and confident take-offs. You'll love the growl this coupe makes, and you should also follow the exhaust's path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see more evidence of a proper restoration. Plus, there's the sports suspension, power brakes w/discs up front, power steering, and sway bars front & rear.
This is the Z-car that celebrates the first-year of the second-gen correctly. So if you love bold and powerful muscle that's made to hit the streets, call today!!!
