The success of the Z-28 made its way to the dealerships where Chevy dealers across the country had orders poring in.
GR Auto Gallery is thrilled to offer this Hugger Orange, 1969 Camaro Z28 for the world to consider. This is a fantastic, three owner car that has been in the hands of the current owner since 1977. The car went through an extensive 6 year restoration process completed in 2010 with the car finished to its original spec. According to the owner, this X77 code Z28 was never molested in any way prior to its restoration and always remained in complete, usable condition. Any sheet metal that was replaced on the car was NOS acquired from GM in the early 80's. The DZ 302, Muncie transmission and 3.73 rear end are stated to be numbers matching and original to the car as are many of the other components. This car features: Hugger Orange exterior paint with white stripes, power steering, power brakes, Chambered exhaust, 15 inch Rally Wheels, bucket seats, Hurst shifter, full size spare with Jack, AM radio etc. Huge attention to detail was exercised during the restoration using mostly parts original to this car or correct NOS replacements where necessary.
