1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Sport Coupe

  • Chassis no. 124377N216877

Sold for $93,500


290 bhp, 302 cu. in. V-8, Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension and rear Mono Plate single-leaf springs, front disc, rear drum brakes. Wheelbase: 108"



• One of 602 first-year Z28s produced

• Documented by Camaro expert Jerry MacNeish

• Restored in original black-on-black livery



Introduced as Chevrolet’s answer to the Ford Mustang, the first-year Z28 Camaros are the rarest of the breed with only 602 ever produced. The father of the Z28 is arguably Vincent Piggins, formerly an engineer in Packard’s engine department before going to work for Hudson. He was notable as a holdout from that earlier breed of automotive engineers who had no formal training. Piggins is credited with engaging with the SCCA officials in a number of conversations regarding the details of the impending Trans-Am sedan racing class, which led to the creation of the model. The Camaro was also seized upon and made famous by Penske Racing and driver Mark Donohue, who campaigned the Camaro through 1969.



The Z28 Special Performance Package included the 302-cubic inch V-8 engine, closed positive ventilation, dual exhaust with deep tone mufflers, special front and rear suspension, heavy-duty radiator and temperature-controlled fan, quick ratio steering, 15x6 wheels, red stripe tires, 3.73:1 rear axle and special paint stripes on the hood and rear deck.



This example has been documented by Camaro expert Jerry MacNeish and is verified to have its original trim tag as well as being verified to have been ordered with black interior and exterior, as well as power steering. Chassis 124377N216877 is also documented in the official 1967 Z28 registry and is accompanied by a copy of the original window sticker. It was restored to extremely high standards in 2006 back to its original, highly attractive livery and has been used little since. Under the hood, enthusiasts will immediately notice the optional cowl plenum duct running from the air cleaner to the firewall, which was available instead of the open element air cleaner in period and pulled air from the cowl vents instead. The car is considered to be a matching-numbers example and, as a testament to its quality, has placed first in American Camaro Association events as well as a Silver Bowtie Performance Award in 2006.
