Default Brought Home The Dream: '69 RS Z/28

Hey all,

Just wanted to say howdy and show the car I brought home this weekend: a '69 RS Z/28.

It was sold new at Ferris Bros Chevrolet in Harvard, Illinois, restored from 2000-2010 out near Chicago, then went to Tuscon then Anaheim and now up here to the South Bay. No docs and unfortunately the second owner did a reproduction trim tag (maybe to match the swap to 713 interior), but otherwise it's to my eye a pretty solid restoration. The PO had Jerry M do a "data analysis" on the car from photos and Jerry is confident it's an original Z. Once the world returns to a bit more normal I'll have to get Jerry out here to California to do a proper certification.

Some quick details: 02D, from photos appears to be an original 72 72 car, warranty replacement CE 302, original BV axle, and not-original M21. Carb rebuilt by Jerry (runs great!) and most everything under the hood is numbers-correct so it's possible the original owner blew up the DZ and swapped over the accessories to the replacement motor. 403 bellhousing, 367 starter, 480 distributor, 837 alternator, UH radiator, spiral shocks, YH wheels, and a lovely-sounding chambered exhaust!

It likely started life with standard interior and flat hood (not sure about spoilers either), but the second owner swapped to deluxe houndstooth (my favorite) and cowl hood. That super scoop hood flap works great!

Lots of little things to fix and tweak and I have much to learn, but overall it's a pretty damned fun setup for a weekend driver. It's been an exciting, whirlwind weekend here at our house for sure - finally made the dream come true! On to photos...

Congrats.

Too bad about the trim tag. Have you tried to see if a PO kept it? Would be nice to reunite it with the car, if possible. Otherwise, it is what it is, right?

Won't make it any less fun to drive.

For what it is worth, the white out treatment on the top of the cowl is similar to how mine came from the factory; although mine has less spill over onto the firewall.

See third pic in post #8 in this thread: https://www.yenko.net/forum/showthre...d+pics+project

Have a blast.

Thanks! Sadly the second owner unexpectedly passed away shortly after that ten-year process to restore it. His wife then owned it for several years, then reluctantly sold it to a friend, then it went to the owner in Anaheim from whom I bought it, so the tag is probably long gone. But seems like the paint job was done with a real eye for making it look factory. I kind of like that the repro tag is on top of the cowl paint so it's obvious it's not original.

Thanks, everyone! Yeah, the chambered exhaust is just ridiculously fun. I'm also amazed at how well it idles, in part I expect thanks to Jerry M rebuilding the carb.
