1969 Camaro being built for performance!

  1969 Camaro being built for performance! Classic Chevys are more loved for their classic lines than for their dated suspensions or even their cool sounding, but by today’s standards, power-lacking drivetrains. It all started with a stalled project Tim found local to him in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The 1969 Camaro had been undergoing a complete restoration when the project ground to a halt. Since it was missing a drivetrain, something he would have discarded anyways, it was perfect for what he had in mind. Before work stopped on the Camaro it had been body worked straight and shot in Aztec Gold period-correct paint. Tim dug the retro color, feeling it would add to the Camaro's sleeper status.

I have been into muscle cars since I was 14 and have owned (and still own) many: a 1969 Chevelle, 1972 El Camino, 1970 Nova, 1975 and 1977 Trans Ams, 1970 Buick Wildcat, 1971 Camaro, pro touring 1970 Chevelle, and this one, a 1974 Z28.

All GM Brands Turn Out for the 2017 Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals

  All GM Brands Turn Out for the 2017 Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals This year, the folks at Carlisle Events decided to narrow the focus—or, at least, narrow the brand name—of their June GM-oriented show. So last year's GM Nationals became this year's Chevrolet Nationals, just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most popular Chevys of all time, the Camaro.© John MachaqueiroNo Camaro fan would leave this show wanting for more. The first Camaro was there. So was the five-millionth. There were pace cars, big-block cars, Z cars from every era.

I had been looking for one since I was 14 and saw one in a neighbor's garage with the big Z28 callout on the hood. I'm 49 now, and last year I finally found one. It came from a collection in Maine. This was the last car he had left, and he still had not decided for sure to sell it, but we worked out a deal.

This is a true survivor with 16,700 miles, original paint, interior, drivetrain, and tires. The only items that have been changed are the exhaust, shocks, and belts, but they were replaced with factory parts. The original owner did remove the smog equipment, but all the components came with the vehicle. I plan to reinstall them.

This is a low optioned car with a four-speed and AM radio. No A/C, no console, and no power options. In other words, exactly the way I wanted one. This is also an early build car that has a Muncie M20 four-speed and standard points distributor. Early after production started they used up the transmissions left over from 1973 and switched to electronic ignition.

Over the years I have found that there aren't a lot of 1974 Z28s around, especially nice ones. That's good and bad. The bad is that it's very hard to find a good one, but the good is that there aren't a lot of them left, so you rarely see one at shows or in a publication. I'd love it if you would share mine with your readers.
