This is a real, numbers matching ’70 Z/28 which came to us from the second owner. Last registered in 1977, it is amazingly complete and is believed to have under 28,000 original miles. Many years ago the car was disassembled with the intention of building a drag racer: The complete original drivetrain was set aside along with the unique date-coded original wheels and many N.O.S. parts.
The body is very solid with some rust shown in the rear quarter panels. Most of the paint was stripped by hand years ago by the second owner: It has obviously been stored well. The floor pans are excellent and the undercoating seen in photos was dealer-added when new.
The black interior is well preserved with the seats, dash and door panels showing minimal wear. The dash pad has separated a bit on the top side: Seats are original and in excellent shape.
This is a rare car, in a great color combination certainly deserving of a high quality restoration. So much time will be saved searching for original parts because, well, they’re all here!
Automotion Classics is a full-service restoration shop and could make this Z/28 into a show winner for you. It would make a great compliment to our 1970 LT1 Corvette Convertible shown here: http://automotionclassics.com/inventory/1970-corvette-lt1-convertible
