1967 Pre-Production Z28 Trans-Am Camaro
Chassis No. 124377N163228
Chevrolet's Camaro Z28, was designed to compete in the new, and highly popular, SCCA Trans-Am Series. The production car series mantra was "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday!" And win they did. The Z28 won the Trans-Am Championship in 1968 and 1969, with Mark Donahue and Roger Penske. They also proved the Z28' metel in international, endurance racing, capturing first in class at the 1968, 12 Hours of Sebring.
The Z28 offered here is the ex-Gary Morgan/Heinrich Chevrolet factory supported Trans-Am car. It too had a successful racing career, competing in the Trans-Am series and also winning the Area 11 SCCA A-Sedan Championship in 1968. The Z/28 also went on to finish 4th overall in the Fingerlakes Region SCCA Northeast Division.
The car’s successes would lead to Gulf Oil sponsorship and the car being featured in Gulf Oil television commercials which ran during the 1968 political conventions, and the astronauts landing on the moon in 1969.
