Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (1969)


Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (1969)

For 1969 the Camaro got all-new sheet metal with more aggressive styling. In Z28 form it was designed to compete against the Mustang in the Transmission-Am racing series, and it even stole two championships from Ford's pony car in the late 1960s. What made it most legendary, however, was the road-going versions, which were barely tamed race cars. The chassis got uprated springs and shocks, while the rear live axle also had staggered positioning on the shocks to help control wheel hop, which earlier Z28s had suffered from badly. Four-wheel disc brakes were an option too and were straight from the Corvette. From the same car were the Rallye Steel rims with 6 inches (152mm) of width to improve handling. The engine was a short stroke 302ci (4.9-liter) so could rev very well, though it was best over 8|000rpm for manners. This car has the rare dual carb option for more power.
