I have a 1968 Z28 RS Camaro 302 M.O....Does anyone know that the color code on the British Green
means with one Z (its British Green), with a Z-Z (means its a "Special Paint Code: British green , but a different paint was
used which in the sun it had gold fakes in the british Green and at night it was almost black.) But I have a question? What carb would you use in a 68 Z28 RS with a change , now with Dart Heads cost alot to have it ported out and I have a 4346 Just been rebuilt. Dianna

No, regarding the 68 model year, Z was used as special paint up until January 68 when British Green was introduced. Then a dash (-) was used for special paint and British Green got the Z code.

1967 special paint cars used the letter "O" instead of the normal color code. For early model year 1968, the designation for special paint cars changed to the letter "Z". However, new mid-year colors needed codes assigned to them, and starting January 1968 the letter "Z" paint code was used to denote the newly available Camaro color called British Green, and simultaneously the notation of special order paint was changed to a dash "-". The "-" (dash) special paint code continued for the rest of the 1968 model year as well as for the entire 1969 model year. Due to changes and differences in how the factories marked the paint codes (especially differences in 1968 factory formats), the special paint formats are easier to illustrate in the examples in the Special Paint Table below than to describe in words.
The 2 characters (letters for 67-8, numbers for 69) in the paint code on the cowl tag describe top and bottom colors. Non vinyl top and convertibles have a double paint code like A-A or Z-Z. The second character describes the top. Z-2 for example, is British Green, black top (either vinyl or convertible).... if the car was built January or later. :)

Hope that makes sense....

No it does not. We are the 2nd owner's to this car, My best friend of 40 years sold it to me as a basket case as far as primer and I had it tore down completely 20 years ago for rust, bondo, etc, Then piece by piece it was pained the Z-Z code which I wanted it blue but the guy who is a friend of mine said paint it original color. I have 100's of pic's. It took 2 years to get her back. The paint was a different paint mixture of Du..oh hell I'm not getting any more of my secrets ..I told my wife not to talk to anyone about my car.. I know everything about her. It's a real Z28 RS 302 MO. that's all you need to know. This car was painted 20 years ago. and look at it. and I race it, show it and cruise it. I am in san diego, Ca, and I'm 65 now , going to have a little more fun with it as it has been in my garage for 1 year, working secretly on it. That's all you need to know. Thanks. Christopher

Z-Z is Green over Green period. I have 2 built right after yours, an R-R and a U-2
Upper and lower body color was denoted on tag . R-R is solid Red while U-2 is Blue with Black vinyl.
Z-Z is BG why are you not agreeing with that? You have a great color! Enjoy it.

No disrespect meant in this question: but I need to ask what are you trying to say? You you disagreeing with the fact that Z-Z means no vinyl no top?

What secret? Figuring out what color you have? Use a Spectrophotometer and you can get it....no biggie. Who questioned anything on it and who cares if it is a RS Z28 or not? I'm not losing sleep over what you do or did with your car.....

Yup, Z-Z is British Racing Green for an 03D car. There were no different shades of it, just the one they used in production.
You're trying to quote CRG. Rich and I wrote those pages and they are correct.

I don't understand when folks throw out their thoughts and strong opinions and then cast egg shells out for everyone else to walk on. It's really tiring and not of benefit to the group.

Within the past few years it appears everything has been turning into an argument over comments and posts.

Yeah I know, Chris was having a bad day. You all are right. it's no secret...He just didn't want to tell anyone that he put Dart Sportsman heads in it. He spent 4,000. to have them ported out. He isn't a computer person and likes to keep everything a secret, but the tag yells it almost all. Thanks, Dianna

Well, he just had a tooth pulled, right ? LOL...

No harm or foul as far as I'm concerned and could care less what the secret ingredients are in that MIGHTY Mouse of yours...(y)The two of you are excellent caretakers and I'm sure you'll be sorry to see it go in a few years....Maybe you'll reconsider after the engine update!!
