I have to take some more pictures.

More.
Bought the car in 2007? from my neighbor. I had a 68 SS in H.S. and sold it years ago. My neighbor had this car and I wasn't looking to buy it, but I told him to get a hold of me if he was going to sell it. One night I got a call saying he wanted to sell it and so here it is. I didn't know a lot about the Z's but I sure have learned.

This had a DZ engine in it when I bought it and he also had a CE engine for it. The DZ spun a bearing and threw a rod so I went for the CE engine. It had a lot of the original dated parts for what was probably the original engine it replaced. There is no paper work (that I have found yet). But the guy my neighbor bought the car from sold it to him because he thought the DZ was the original engine. When it was pointed out to him that it wasn't, he got mad and sold it.

So now it has the CE 302 with most of the original parts on it. Still looking for a distributor and clutch fan. That's about it. The car is mostly as it came from the factory except the hood and spoiler. Those will come off some day and be returned to factory.

Thanks. It's been so long since I was active on here, I had forgotten how to add pics.

I guess I might as well jump in here too. I've had my car for 27 years and finally "finished" restoring it 5 years ago. But as we all know they are never done so last fall I decided to do an LS swap. I got a GMPP LS3376/480 with a 4L70E transmission and have a 12 bolt posi with 3.73 gears. While doing the swap I also put in tubular control arms with QA1 coil overs and Caltracs in the back along with a much larger front and rear sway bar. I have Dakota Digital gauges but is mostly stock appearing other than that. Here are some pics.

Three owner 69 Z/28 that I have owned almost 20 years now. The car currently has just a little over 87400 original miles on it, & still retains it's "Born with" 302 & BU rear end but unfortunately the original M21 was MIA before I bought the car. Overall the car is in nice driver condition having only one repaint back in 1986 by the second owner. I had a great time teaching my oldest daughter to drive a 4 speed in this car when she was just 14. :eek: Just recently put the Rallys wheels back on it after running the Torque Thrusts for several years, I snapped the picture before installing the center caps & trim rings..

Okay... I'm game, here's my three shots:


Car was a 10-year restoration project, paint and interior colors are code correct, hidden partial VINs jive, originally an X44 car, V-8, automatic. Now a 454 with a BW Super T10. Current Wheel Vintique chrome rallys are temporary... probably go to 17" or maybe stagger 17"/18" down the road. RS Grill is on its way, Vintage air this summer as well.


Under the hood: Engine is a mid-'70's 454 most specs are in my sig. More power than I'll ever need, recent additions include Wilwood MC, TuffStuff booster, Hooker Competition headers, Helix tubular control arms, ProForged BJs, JGC steering box.


Interior is fresh from carpets to headliner. Added a MOMO D36 steering wheel, but its still a work in progress, restored a console which will be going in as soon as I get the carbon fiber dash and console inserts finished (no wood), and that will tie in nicely with carbon fiber dash bezel and white faced SpeedHut gauges.

I'm not a stickler for originality, be the first to admit my car is a "tribute SS." I respect the "keep it original" guys but I will continue to tweak it to my taste. I'm kind of torn between the muscle and pro-touring look LOL :grin2:.
