: Z-28 1st Gen
Jan 5th, 07, 09:59 AM
I just found a 1st generation Z-28. I couldn't get close to the car since its inside private property and have not been able to contact the owner. But from what I could see from the street, it has the entire rear end, its missing the DS door, front grill, bumper, hood. and I,m not sure if it has the engine or not. It does not look like a rust bucket from that far distance and its been in a garage (sort of) for a while.:hurray:
With this vage description how much do the experts here at camaros.net think I could offer for it??:confused:
Sorry for my english is poor.
Thanks in advance for your help

First you would have to figure out what year it is (1967-1969).
I would start by approaching the owner of the car and ask him if hes interested at all in selling it. Probe a bit and ask some questions.
What year is it?
What motor is in it?
If he is hesitant about selling it, tell him you are serious and have the cash. Obviously you don't want to overpay, but let him know you have the $$.
Get a few pictures of it then post them here. People can give you a good idea of the price.

'67 will have rounded wheelwell openings with no side marker lights in the front fender or rear 1/4 panel.
'68 will have rounded wheelwell openings with marker lights.
'69 will have squared-off wheel well openings.
From what I have gathered here in a few short months...proving a '67-'68 Z can be damn near impossible without the original engine, or a big pile of paperwork. A '69 Z can be traced with the X-code on the trim tag among various other things. If it has no hood on it....I'd wager it has no engine, or if it does have an engine with the hood off, it's probably toast.
A while back, a complete low mile '69 Z sold on ebay for some wicked amount like $20k; it had been wrecked all over on it's last voyage, but was still complete down to the stickers on the coil springs.
Like mox said, get some pics; plenty of folks slapped Z28 and SS badges on their Camaro back in the day.

A '67 Z/28 would be easy to prove because of the 4L on the trim tag (4P on the first 25). A '68 Z/28 would be the most difficult to prove if possible at all. Not all '69 camaros had X codes. The California built cars did not have X codes and the Norwood built cars didn't get X codes until early December of 1968.

yeah, I wasn't going to get into the X-code stuff yet; a lot of other larger-scale stuff to check out first. My 10C Z/28 is a non X-code car as well.

Good to know, thank for the replys, I was going by the tail lights, wich now I know not to. But just in case, it has the 3 small square tail lights.
Probably on Monday I will post pics,.
