The best thing about being a Camaro fan is: through five generations and 48 years of cars, GM has continuously provided us with a variety of purpose-built performance packages that normally wouldn’t make it off the boardroom floor. And today, when it comes to high dollar classics, you simply can’t go wrong with a documented first generation Z/28. Pedigreed, well-done small block cars continue to be some of the hottest selling metal on the market. And this investment grade panther has all the right ingredients to bring big value and even bigger appeal. For starters, it’s an authentic Ermine White car, which features a correct Custom interior. It also packs a correct, 290 horsepower 302. AND it rows power through a correct Muncie 4-speed. If you’re in the market for a professionally restored collector car that you can enjoy and build equity in, this slick F1 demands your full attention!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Assembled in June of 1967, and delivered to Gorries Chevrolet in Ontario, Canada, this awesome Camaro is the beneficiary of a ground-up restoration that spared no expense massaging the car’s rock-solid body in to better-than-new condition. When that body was smooth and aligned, a correct coat of Ermine White 2-stage was accented with correct rally stripes. And today, as 1 of only 602 ’67 Z/28s produced, this coupe rolls as a top-notch classic that preserves some of the best attributes of Chevrolet Performance history.

With its timeless proportions and modernist panels, the first generation Camaro is an inherently attractive design. And with today’s world-class restoration techniques, it has become an excellent canvas for any skilled builder to create a seriously nice car. At the front of this clean F1, a black-trimmed grille centers a small Chevrolet emblem between halogen headlights, ’67-exclusive parking lamps and a mirror-like bumper. Above that grille, a Camaro-branded header leads the eye to like-new glass that’s bordered by straight stainless trim. At the sides of that header, sculpted fenders combine with a small mirror, traditional door handles, simple “Camaro” emblems and fresh rocker trim to detail the car’s bright white profile. And at the back of those fenders, ’67-exclusive taillights illuminate a Camaro-branded trunk, a body-matched fuel cap and a second mirrored bumper.

ENGINE

Under this coupe’s Kansas-flat hood you’ll find a 302 cubic inch, era-correct V8. Straight from the factory, Chevrolet’s high performance SCCA Mustang slayer utilized high flow, rectangular port heads, a forged steel crank, forged steel rods and forged aluminum pistons to twist stout 11 to 1 compression into more than 350 horsepower! At the top of the red-hot small block, a chrome, open-element air cleaner swirls wind in to a familiar Winters intake via a big Holley carburetor. At the sides of that intake, authentic double hump heads hang chrome, “Chevrolet” branded valve covers over restored exhaust manifolds. And at the back of those heads, a mandatory points distributor shoots spark through 7mm Premium Silicone Magnetic Suppression cables. When fired, the infamous 302 snarls and barks like a real competition piece. Its ancillary components are top-notch in every way, with fresh GM hoses, a refinished brake booster and a reproduction Delco Energizer battery accompanying a correctly shrouded radiator. And an evenly sprayed combination of Chevy Orange skin and Satin Black framing is carefully interrupted by variety of correct decals.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Back in 1967, the only transmission you could get with your Z/28 was a tough Muncie 4-speed; and that’s exactly what lives behind this car’s mean small block. That quick-shifting gear slinger is backed by a fresh driveshaft, which is connected to a stout, 12-bolt axle. That first-rate drivetrain is held off the ground by a completely rebuilt suspension, which includes 4-piston, Corvette-style brakes, correct power steering, mono-leaf springs and reproduction shocks. That suspension is dissected by a beefy, true-dual exhaust system, which is fitted with a correct, transversely mounted muffler. That exhaust system is framed by mostly-original floors and clean paint, which perfectly highlight a stainless fuel tank. Those floors roll on 15-inch Rally wheels, which spin F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sports around dent-free trim rings and correct stainless center caps. And that chassis has, like the car’s engine bay, been restored to fully sorted, road-ready condition.

INTERIOR

The Custom Black interior hiding behind this Camaro’s small doors illustrates the true, no frills intentions of Chevrolet’s original Z/28. Its white-trimmed Strato Buckets look and feel fantastic. In front of those seats, a stainless-trimmed dash, which exhibits no signs of warping or peeling, hangs small accessory gauges below factory telemetry and a correct Delco AM radio. At the base of that dash, a correct console founds a chrome Hurst shifter. That seat, dash and console trifecta is completely framed by a tight headliner, fade-free carpet and pliable door panels. In front of the driver, a familiar Chevrolet steering wheel spins satin spokes around a “Camaro” branded centerpiece. And behind the passengers, the car’s solid trunk has been correctly restored with a new mat, a new jack, a full-size tire and fresh decklid decals.

DOCUMENTATION INCLUDED WITH OUR SALE

The sale of this blue chip F-Body includes GM Canada documentation, a Jerry MacNeish certification and a vintage Car and Driver article.

Early Z/28s are certainly rare, and “IMPRESSIVE” is one word that definitely describes this car. Given the crops of clones and fakes that popped up as the marque gained popularity, having a documented, correct example is what separates the enthusiasts from the fans. If you want a pony car that’ll draw a crowd for reasons other than bright paint and aftermarket badges, this investment grade F1 is exactly what you’re looking for!
