Default Just Bought a 69 Z28 Project

Pretty excited and am really trying to resist digging into it before some other projects are done! Have known about the car for years, and finally got my greasy hands on it. Norwood x77 car. Marina Blue top and bottom with white stripes and a dark blue interior. No spoilers and though the original hood is missing it looks to have been a flat hood car. Does have console with gauges, tilt column, 8k tach, and rosewood wheel. Been off the road a long, long time. Original motor is MIA - car was drag raced in the late 70s. Does have a 327 350hp motor from a 65 Vette in it now. Haven't checked the transmission for #'s yet. Rearend is coded BV. Pretty solid car - floors and trunk look good though it has plenty of dings, dents, lower front fender rust, and will need a new drivers side quarter panel from damage.

So far the only surprise bummer is the power brake booster and front disc brakes were removed and replaced with drums.

And now to hunt down a DZ motor......will post pics after I get it out of the trailer and find a home for it. Currently, no room at the inn so some shuffling is needed!

Congrats!

Your car, but you would get style points if it remains flat hood, no spoilers, X77.

Also consider a CE block.

I like where you're going with that! Thoughts on also painting a cowl hood and deck lid with spoiler? You know, just in case a guy likes to mix things up a little and not get bored.

Only my 3rd 1st gen Camaro and first Z, so it's going to be a learning curve.

Doing something similar with my COPO. Original no spoiler car, but those items added in 1970. Having two trunks and two cowl panels (gauges) painted.

I am with William on the CE block. I don't see the point in using a DZ block. JMO
Cool car

Keep the flat hood. All of our z28s are flat hood cars so far. And kept that way! I like a flat hood car better. It speaks to the honesty of the car and how most of them actually came! The cowl hood is hard to resist though!! If I had a non matching motor car, I would build a CE LT1 350 if you plan to drive the car. Looks just like a 302!!

Congrats on the acquisition and enjoy the build

Default 69 z28...

Let's see the photos...

Don't be in a hurry to replace a 1/4 panel, unless it is really gone.

The 327 could get a solid lifter cam, bigger Holley and a little refresh...most folks wouldn't know the difference.

Sounds cool ...

Congrats on the purchase. Marina blue wasn’t a 69 color. Is it Lemans Blue?
Or possibly Glacier Blue?

Trim tag on cowl will have paint codes on it. 71 is lemans Blue.

You're absolutely correct. It's Lemans Blue - I'm more of a Chevelle guy, so Marina Blue is stuck in my brain.

I snapped some pics of it in the trailer. The gentleman's kid started taking things apart and it's a bit of a mess, but the dash is there and good. So is the console.
