Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1969 Z28 Camaro.
The description for this car from Mecum Auctions was written as follows in 2009- Numbers Matching, 17,600 documented miles, original interior, rosewood steering wheel, console with gauges, Rare Code 10 Black Paint, Original Tires Replaced by Original Owner because of dry rot, block #3970010, head #3927186, 12 Bolt with 4:10 gears, power steering, power brakes, and chambered exhaust.
We concur with the vast majority of that description. This is a very original, one repaint and very rare FACTORY BLACK Z28! The miles on the title we have state original and correct with mileage in the 18K range. The interior is extremely nice and original, the paint, we believe one repaint, is very nice. The chrome, engine compartment and the balance of the car is very, very nice. This car sounds, runs and drives just as you would expect a low mileage, well cared for car to drive.
Here are some observations on the car as we see them. The transmission is correctly stamped and is numbers matching. The rear end is correctly stamped for 4:10 gears. The engine is the correct casting code and has a DZ stamp and date designation on the engine pad. The area around the oil filter is not stamped with a vin and the date code on the block is illegible. We only know one way to go when we describe a car here and that is to list it as we see it.
Now let's talk about rare. Original trim tag with the X33, D80 Z28 designation is present and NEVER MESSED WITH. The code 10 Black Paint with Hounds tooth interior makes this one rare dog. The fact that this is a real, Black Z28 means that is most likely one of very few REAL black cars. Let's do some math- there were 20,302 Z28's produced in 1969. Pretty rare to start. According to the Camaro Research Group 2% of Camaro production was Black. So, 20,302 x 2% gets us a whopping 406 Black Z28's in 1969. How many survived? How many got wrecked? How many today have low mileage and are rock solid with original floors and on and on?
You decide what's important- want a green one with a green interior with a restamped engine with a crappy history and Chinese metal? Those are certainly out there and available. Want a real, honest car in the best color available- this one may just be the one for you.
Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.
We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet….
