OMG!! I wish all my clients brought be cars like this. This is a superb example of a collectible car that has been babied…no, scratch that…coveted! Every person who has owned this Z28 has been more like a museum curator rather than your normal enthusiast. Everything is documented from each owner (including copies of titles and registration) to original sales information, to repair and restoration receipts, and even Camaro car show judging results. It even has the original factory build sheet (or “spring tag”) with the spring marks in the paper. I felt like an automotive archeologist as I read through the decades of carefully organized history.
This Camaro was built at the Van Nuys, CA Chevy plant and sold new on February 9th, 1971 from Clarke Hatch Chevrolet in El Cajon, CA. This particular example was a very well optioned Z28. Factory options included:
Soft-Ray tinted glass
Hide-a-Way windshield wipers
Rear window defroster
AM/FM pushbutton radio
Rear seat speaker
Deluxe front and rear bumpers
Special performance package
The Z28 Equipment Package included:
Special V8 Engine (350)
Special wheels and tires
Special chassis components
Power brakes (front discs)
Luxury trim interior (wood grain accents)
In the early years of this Chevy’s life, it changed hands between a few friends/enthusiasts. It is evident that they never damaged the car or modified it. In the early 80’s, the owner at the time decided it was time to do a light restoration. However, as most of these things go, it ended up being a full frame-off restoration. This was a carful restoration where the goal was to preserve the car and bring it back to the day it rolled off the factory floor. All the sheet metal (except the hood) is original to the car. The numbers match for the engine. The intake is original to the car (just polished). It wears its original paint and interior color. The engine bay was detailed as was the complete undercarriage.
Since restoration, it appears the car has been driven only as a weekend cruiser as well as attending many Camaro car shows. At the prestigious Chevy/Vettefest National show in the early 1990’s, this Z28 received a score of 942 out of 1,000 by some of the top Camaro judges.
The current owner purchased this car around 6 years ago. He continued the tradition of caretaker. He put less than a 1,000 miles on the car since he bought it, but was good about driving it on a regular basis. He always serviced it at Corvette Mikes.
When I first saw the car, I was shocked it was a 30-year old restoration. The car looked almost original and unrestored. This Z28 has something that money can’t buy: patina. I’m not talking about the patina that is really more like in dire need of restoration. I’m talking about a certain character that is only achieved through time and preservation. This car has that. It is the real deal
California registration paid through the end of 2012.
This Z28 comes very complete with all the vehicle records, original build sheet, window sticker, past ownership history, restoration receipts, original marketing brochures, jack, and spare tire.
