This Heartbeat City offering includes one beautiful Fathom Green 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 302 with the original engine and transmission that General Motors installed in the car from the factory in 1969. I have taken the time here to address as many details about the car as possible. The individual paragraphs below are designed to help you understand each facet of the car.
The 1969 Z/28 is one of the most sought after muscle cars. The Pontiac Firebird, GTO, or even the TRANS-AM is not as desirable as the Chevrolet Camaro. I have many clients with large car collections consisting of the rarest and most desirable muscle cars such as the Shelby Cobra or the Boss Mustang or even the rare Chryslers Hemi Cuda or Challengers. One thing all of these car collections have in common is the presence of a 1967, 1968 or 1969 Camaro Z/28 427 Yenko, COPO or even a ZL-1. One cannot over emphasize the desirability of the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. The car offered in this eBay auction is no different. Please review the information provided and ask question freely.
1969 Camaro Original Z/28 Crossram w/9737 COPO option, 13/16 off road front sway bar, 140 mph speedometer, JL-8 brakes, fast ratio steering, front & rear spoilers, heavy duty radiator and positraction. Other options include console with gauges, dash mounted tachometer and center dash mounted clock, standard black interior, rosewood steering wheel, tinted glass at all locations, passenger side door mirror, rally wheels, cowl induction and special interior group trim package.
Engine: 302 Crossram
The engine is the original Chevrolet V8 big performance 302 cubic inch 290hp with a casting number of 3970010 with a pad stamping of V1022DZ. This engine is the very same engine that General Motors installed in the car at the factory in 1969. The engine is completely rebuilt with all new parts using new .030 pistons. The crankshaft was machined to .10/.10 under and the camshaft is a genuine Chevrolet 302 off road Cross ram camshaft. The original engine pad stamping and original VIN number is still intact on the side of the engine block. The very last pictures in this auction show close up views of the engine VIN and Transmission VIN. These are not restamps in any way shape or form. Please see the paragraph below for a letter of authenticity that will accompany this Camaro.
Crossram Intake: 2x4 Factory Crossram Intake w/steel hood
The Cross Ram intake is a brand new licensed Chevrolet intake manifold with the correct Holley list #4295 585cfm double pumper carburetors. The pictures below show the quality of the Cross Ram intake manifold and installation. One of the hardest things to accomplish with any multi-carbureted car is setting it up and getting it to run with excellent performance. Make no mistake this Camaro runs as good as any of them. You can literally spin the tires until you are tired of hearing them squeal or you can't breathe from the smoke. If you look closely in the pictures, you can see the oval cut out in the factory steel Cross Ram hood. These hoods alone sell for 5000.00. This is a genuine GM hood.
Transmission: Muncie M-21
This Transmission is the original unit that General Motors installed in the car at the factory in 1969. The build code on the side of the transmission is 9R21B. This indicates it was assembled on August 21 1969. The “B” at the end of the code indicates the transmission is a close ratio. You can view close up pictures of these codes and the VIN at the end of the pictures in the listing.
Rear Axle: JL-8 with 4 wheel Disc Brakes
I removed the original rear axle from this car 2 years ago and installed a factory original service package JL-8 4 wheel disc brake set-up. The rear axle is completely rebuilt with all new ring & pinion and bearings etc. The housing is in near mint condition. The casting date on the housing is K-15-8. This means the housing was casted on November 15 1968. The axle assembly date is QX12218 G1 E. This stamping sequence means the rear axle was assembled on December 21 1968 and a 3.73 gear ratio was installed. The G stands for Gear and Axle Plant. The “E” indicates Eaton for the positraction unit. The brake calipers both front and rear are completely rebuilt, restored and stainless steel sleeved. The front brakes on the car are the special calipers, and brackets for the JL-8 option. All parts are completely restored and rebuilt to factory specifications. If you’ve ever driven a JL-8 Brake optioned Camaro and stomped on the brake pedal you already know why these brakes are so popular. The original cost in 1969 for this ultra rare option was a bit over 500.00. This may be the reason why only 206 JL-8 Camaro(s) were produced from the factory with the RPO code JL-8 brake option.
Body & Sheet metal
All body panels are genuine GM original parts. There are no Taiwan or China body panels on this car. The quarter panels are full to the sail panel and are NOS Genuine GM parts. The entire front clip and doors are all original to the car. The trunk lid and rear spoiler are original GM. The floor pan, trunk pan and rocker panels are all original GM and have not been replaced or patched.
Interior: Standard black
Brand new standard black seat covers, door panels, carpet and most all trim has been replaced. Even the seat foams and seatbacks were replaced. Please see pictures of the interior. The steering wheel is shown in some pictures as the black comfort grip. I found a super nice Rosewood wheel and installed that steering wheel on the car. The Rosewood wheel is an original GM steering wheel without cracks or damage. The steering wheel you will receive with the car is the Rosewood steering wheel.
Suspension: Front & Rear
All new front and rear suspension parts have been replaced. All new bushings, ball joints, tie-rod ends, steering pitman arm etc. The rear suspension springs are brand new correct reproductions of the original rear leaf springs. The under carriage of the car is shown in many of the pictures. Much attention was given to detail and correctness. We installed all new spiral shock absorbers. We used correct fasteners with detailing and correct plating and head markings.
The original spare tire in the picture is shown and is still intact. The spare rally wheel is the original “YH” with a date code of 8-4-9 or August 4 1969. The original spare tire is the Goodyear Wide Tread GT E-70-15 with Nylon cord. I photographed the date code and the nylon cord marking as well as the YH code. The original jack is not photographed, but it is dated 9J or October 1969. The jack is original and untouched. The spare wheel and tire have not been restored or detailed. These items were left in mint original condition.
Letter of Authenticity: Sworn Statement
Many Camaros and other muscle cars are being sold out there on the open market with the buyer beware “as is” concept. What many people do not understand is that the “AS IS” Law or Statement is that you cannot legally manufacture or alter a motor vehicle with the intention of fraud. This means if you take a standard model 1969 Camaro body and install Z/28 or SS parts and other items on said vehicle, then re-stamp or deface the engine, engine codes or misrepresent the vehicle to fraud another prospective buyer, you can be guilty of a crime. That crime is called fraud or intent to fraud in many states. Please contact your attorney or your state Attorney General for your legal rights.
