1974 Z/28 Opportunity

Good afternoon, Gents-

I'm looking for a little advice-and I'll try to make this as short as I can. A friend of my wifes is recently divorced. She is looking to sell a 1974 Z/28 that she has had since the divorce.

short version of the car:
Bought by the Husband to be the daughters high school car. At that time, they put some dough in to the car, new paint, making sure everything mechanical was good, custom wheels.

As it sits now:
been sitting outside for approximately 5 years in a driveway. It has a car cover on it, but I haven't been over to really check it out yet. I assume it is a numbers matching car, and a true Z/28. I will post more once I get over there and really check it out. It is an automatic, and I'm fairly certain it is an A/C car. Red with "correct" White Z/28 stripes on the hood and deck.

Questions:
-Value in rough shape, decent shape, and fully restored?
-Is there a way to tell if it is a true Z/28 (special VIN, or stamping, etc)
-I'm going to get particulars on the car, then either help her sell it-or buy it for myself to drop a little money in and turn- to that end, what would you like to know?

Thanks!!

Re: 1974 Z/28 Opportunity

I was over on NastyZ28 and someone posted a similar question. This one is in rough shape and they were saying 3k to 2500. The description you give appears to be in better shape although it has a 4 speed. I had heard that auto trans cars were built in Van Nuys so there could be a build sheet on top of the gas tank.

No 74 camaros were built at van nuys sooo ( no camaros built at van nuys from 72 to 75 or 6 ) .. No stripes on a 74 z28 . Just the big Z28 decals on the hood and trunk . The 74 z28 will have a " T " as the fifth designation in the vin .

The original poster should really gaze at a picture of a 74 Z28 to familiarize himself with the car's look.

It's a unique one year look.

Re: 1974 Z/28 Opportunity

I guess I was not specific enough. The car does not have the stripes of a 70-72 SS Chevelle, or a 1st gen-but does have the Z/28 decals (I called them stripes for lack of the correct term). I am looking at the car tonight, so should have some pictures.

Re: 1974 Z/28 Opportunity

OK, saw the car over the weekend-as it turns out, I don't think the decals are correct. And it feels like someone shot clear over them. The car was painted when the current owner got it. The car still shows fairly well.

-Car has 101K miles
-Current owner is the second owner, and the car is original except for the exhaust (glasspacks), and an Edelbrock Carb
-2 hail type dents in the roof
-There is minor rust in the usual places, however the rear framerails look fairly bad. I need to get a better picture of those-
-The VIN shows it as a Camaro Z/28 (not LT)
-The ex husband backed a boat trailer into the drivers quater-but it looks like a fairly easy repair
-Is currently tagged and insured, but has not been driven in 5 years
-Front airdam is gone
-Hate those Ultra Wheels
-A/C car (obviously), non HEI distributor
-Turbo 400 and 10 bolt posi (didn't take pics of the tags)

I am going to head back over to put a new battery in it, and run a fuel line into a gas can to see about getting it running.
