1969 x77 D80 garage find

Another z28 found and rescued. Last weekend I found this x77 Z. It's a two owner car with 67k original miles. It's been off the road since 1975/76. Second owner passed and left for his brother but never did anything with it but let it waste away. All numbers match with protect o plate. It's a Cortez silver black interior car. Everything on the car is original but the distributor coil and headers. It will be receiving a full resto at some point!!

I would make sure you take them coil overs off the back shocks - they will leave you very confused in a high speed corner some day if you don't . . .

Numbers matching beats pretty. Confuscious say-- you can make it pretty if its not....but you can't make it numbers matching if it's not.

Did you get the parts that are missing in the pictures or are they long gone?
