This example was produced in General Motors’ Los Angeles, California factory during the first week of November 1968. Nineteen sixty-nine was the final model year for first-generation Camaros. This Z28 sold new on January 1st 1969 at Connell Chevrolet, Costa Mesa California and was a California car for decades. The previous owner has owned this Camaro for the past 13 years and has preserved the Z's numbers matching 302 engine, matching Muncie M20, matching rear 12 bolt 3.73 posi and even down to thematching original Hurst shifter!Dressed in factory correct Hugger Orange (code 72) and twin white Z/28 rally stripes (code W), the car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order. Its bodywork is straight and solid, includes a rear spoiler, the engine bay is very tidy and the car’s chrome bumpers are in very good order.This F-body rolls on BFGoodrich T/A radials, size 245/60R14 in front and 245/60R15 in back. Each tire is wrapped around a Rally wheel. The tires and wheels are all in very good order.Under that hood is Chevrolet’s number matching 302 CID Turbo-Fire V-8 (engine suffix code DZ #19L507737). In 1969, eight percent of Camaros were ordered with RPO Z28. It was designed 302-cubic-inch engine for SCCA Trans Am competition. The 302 was created by combining the 327’s engine block casting (4.00-inch bore) with the 283’s crankshaft (3.00-inch stroke). This engine was built for competition and featured plenty of race-car kit, including an 11:1 compression ratio; four bolt main caps; a solid-lifter camshaft and solid valve lifters; high-rise intake manifold topped with an 800 CFM Holley 4053 four-barrel carburetor; high-capacity oil pump and baffled oil pan. It exhaled through a 2.25-inch, dual exhaust system. The engine was finished with a chrome-plated air cleaner, rocker covers, filler tube, and cap. The 302 shared the finned, cast aluminum valve covers with the LT-1 350 Corvette engine. Conservatively rated at 290 horsepower (SAE gross) at 5800 rpm and 290 lbs·ft at 4800, actual output was around 376 horsepower!Backing up this engine is a numbers matching Muncie M20, four-speed manual transmission #P9R16 with a numbers matching 12-bolt rear axle and a 3.73:1 rear end #BU1101G. Driver convenience features include power disc/drum brakes and tilt steering columnInside, the car’s black interior (code 712) is in overall very good order and is a correct early no console Z28. The Strato-Bucket front seats and rear bench seats look great while the matching carpet is in great order. The black headliner is in great shape while the two-spoke factory steering wheel with woodgrain insert is in great shape. The instrument panel, with corresponding woodgrain accents, is in very good order, as are the inner door panels. An AutoMeter 10,000 RPM tachometer along with Stewart Warner oil pressure and coolant temperature gauges are mounted beneath the dash. The fuel gauge and the wipers are inoperable. Completing the interior is a date code correct Hurst shifter.The 1969 Camaro carried over the previous year's drivetrain and major mechanical components, but all-new sheet metal, except the hood and trunk lid, gave the car a substantially sportier look. The grille was redesigned with a heavy “V” can’t and deeply inset headlights. New door skins, rear quarter panels, and rear valance panel also gave the car a much lower, wider, more aggressive look. This styling would serve for the 1969 model year only. Collectors often debate the merits of smooth, rounded lines of 1967 and 1968 model versus the heavily creased and sportier looks of the 1969.To increase competitiveness in the SCCA Trans-Am racing series, optional four-wheel disc brakes with four-piston calipers were made available during the year, under RPO JL8. This system used components from the Corvette and made for a major improvement (except when sport striping or Z28 Special Performance Package is specified), simulated rear fender louvers, front and rear wheel opening moldings, black body sill, RS emblems on grille, steering wheel and rear panel, Rally Sport front fender nameplates, bright accented taillights, back-up lights below rear bumper; also includes bright roof drip moldings on Sport Coupe, 37,773 built. This option could be added to any other option (i.e., SS or Z/28), making the model an RS/SS or a RS/Z28.The 1969 model year was exceptionally long, extending into November 1969, due to manufacturing problem that delayed the introduction of the second-generation model planned for 1970. It is a popular myth that late ‘69 Camaros were sold as 1970 models (due to GM publicity pictures of the '69 Camaro labeled as a 1970), but they were all assigned 1969 VIN codes.Competition to this Camaro in 1969 included AMC’s Javelin SST and AMX, Ford’s Mustang Mach 1, Mercury’s Cougar Eliminator, Plymouth’s Barracuda Road Runner and Pontiac’s Firebird Trans Am.Chevy fans, Camaro fans and ponycar fanatics would be remiss not to check out the ’69 Z/28 here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, so make sure to visit today to look it over in person!VIN: 124379L507737This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri.
