1969 Camaro Z28: When you talk about late 1960s muscle cars you have to mention the Camaro Z28, and many people think that the 1969 Z28 was the best of them all. The 1969 Z28 may not have been the fastest car on the road, but it could hold its own and it sure was a beautiful looking motor vehicle.
The 1969 Camaro Z28 featured the cowl induction hood option and the Rally Sport package with the hidden headlights. The 1969 Z28 came with front disc brakes as a standard feature, and four wheel disc brakes were also offered in 1969 for the first time. This option is interesting to note because the all-wheel disc ’69 Z28s are rare–only 206 of them were sold and half of those were in full blown race cars.
The 1969 Z28 was powered by the 302 cubic inch V8 and four barrel carb, and the engine was rated at 290 horsepower but most people say it put out significantly more. These cars were known for their fantastic handling ability, and they were capable of getting a quarter of a mile at 94.8 miles per hour in just over fifteen seconds. The base price of the 1969 Camaro Z28 was $3185, and a total of 20,302 of them were produced.
