1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Will Dominate Car Shows, Road Courses

It's always refreshing to see a first-gen Camaro that is this clean and unmodified.

There are classic cars, and there's the first-gen Chevy Camaro. Something about the lines of these early Camaros makes it one of the coolest-looking cars to come out of the '60s, and that is especially the case when it comes to the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. And as cool as the '69 Camaro is, it's refreshing to see one in original, unmodified condition like this one being sold by J7 Motorsports in Jacksonville, Florida.

Although the '69 Z/28 isn't as rare as the '67 or '68 model years, this year is arguably the best-looking of the first-gen Camaros. This particular car is painted in a beautiful dark blue hue with white Z/28 stripes, and the paint quality and chrome work looks absolutely amazing. The classic styling is finished with rally wheels and period-looking Firestone tires.

For 1969, which was also the last year for the first-gen Camaro, Chevrolet gave the body some subtle yet effective styling updates. The most notable include the V-shaped grille resulting in more prominent headlight housings, while the rear of the Camaro got new taillights increasing from two to three lenses. The biggest change inside the car was the addition of square-shaped instrument gauges, which gave inspiration to the retro cabin design of the fifth-gen (2010-2015) Camaro.

Under that striped, cowl-inducted hood sits the Z/28's 302 CID V8 with a four-barrel carb rated at 290 horsepower, and the engine is mated to a four-speed Muncie manual transmission. For added performance, the '69 Z/28 was equipped with dual exhaust and power front disc brakes.

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is as clean and original as they come, and it's in show-ready condition for $79,900. Of course, you can always click here to make an offer.
