Default Original paint scheme vs repaint 69 z/28

Hello. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much a 1969 z/28 is devalued by having been painted a different color than it was born with. The car came off the line green with white stripes, it is now yellow with black stripes. The rest of the numbers all match, it has the original DZ motor, original tranny and rearend, wheels, etc. the car is beautiful, stored inside in temp controlled climate. But, not the original color. How costly is that? Thanks for any help guys.

If the existing yellow/black paint condition is a 10 the cost of the repaint would be more then the value it would add to the Z. IMO

If you do all the work yourself & can do a professional quality job with a ďpopular modern day colorĒ like black. You might even increase the value over green to the ďright buyer.Ē If you are not planning on selling the car in the next few years, maybe you should just paint it whatever color turns you on. If you are going to sell it before too long, itís probably best to keep it totally original because itís a Z28. Buyers of Zís can be much more fanatical than buyers of other types of Camaros. For bargaining purposes, the buyer will dog the car if itís NOT original color, but a potential buyer may well dog the car (bargaining) if itís GREEN too, even if they secretly LOVE the color.

None of this would be an issue if it was originally Hugger Orange.

Thanks for the thoughts guys. I appreciate all and any of your input, even the hunger orange stuff. Lol. Myself, I like the yellow/black a lot more than the green/white scheme. A friend who has a green and white 69z says the car has been devalued by 20 to 30 thousand, but I disagree that is why I am asking for your guys thoughts. Thanks, like I say.

How can he say 20-30K. The most it could be devalued is the cost of a paint job.

I think a new Frost Green paint job looks killer, although I'm not sure everyone would agree. repainted my original Frost Green Yenko clone Fathom Green.

Certain colors do bring more than others. Painted the original color, and all things being equal, a Hugger or Black Z would sell for more than a FG one....but not the $20K to $30K your buddy quoted.

If you like Daytona Yellow, I'd leave it as is.

The interior is black. I have checked this car out closely, but not taken many pics. It is jammed in a climate controlled storage facility along with 17 others that the gentleman has collected. I will post my pics but they are hard to take when the car is so close to the others that he had to hold the door while I got in to sit in it. Since I took the pics, he has moved it into his work shop so I could check underneath it on his hoist. I will post my few pics tonight. Thanks again guys.

I am in a real quandry here. I have always been a mopar guy, and he has offered me a nice deal on a total restoration of a 1970 440 6pack gtx. the guy has his own rotisserie and the gtx is totally documented and numbers matching, and it is beautiful. But, i have fallen in love with this little z28. In the yellow and black paint, it is so eye catching and does it sound like it means business. It is also numbers matching, except for the paint, and the paint job is excellent. so, i am trying to decide. right now i am sure i am going with the z. He is giving me time, and believe it or not , my wife says i can have either.
