Default Sam's (SamsDZ) 1969 Z28- Help the story to continue!

Hi Bruce,

Wanted to see if you could add my car to the Members Rides?

I am from Ventura, CA and purchased this Z about 3 months ago. I believe it to be a legit Z but no longer has the born with 302. Camaro Research Group found the original motor on their orphaned thread for sale (on Craigslist ad back in 2012). I Spoke to Bob who posted it for sale and he sold it to gentleman named Glen from Vallejo CA.

A little more to add Bruce,

I spoke to Bob, the person that had my motor ( V1I15DZ ) up for sale on the Craigslist ad in 2012 and he told me he sold the motor to a gentleman named Glen who was a Petro Engineer in Vallejo CA.

He purchased the motor from Bob at a Good Guys car show in Sacramento around 2012 or 2013. Unfortunately that’s where the search has ended.

The car need a little TLC but it is all there and runs well. I am working on an extra wheel and tire setup for a change up every few months, already have a pair of 15x6 Cragars and looking for a pair of black or silver steel wheels with some M&H Cheater slicks for the rear. Kinda of a “ day 2 “ setup as I love this look and era.


I think Yenko.net is a great site, I cant get enough of all the posts, so much good stuff.


Look forward to possibly finding more details on my Z28 as this story continues.


Thanks,

Sam

----Nice Z and welcome to the sight! I couldn't help but notice that the drivers side has a cast iron exhaust manifold and the pass side has a header. Unusual to say the least, although there probably a good explanation......Bill S

Nice ride. I always appreciate deluxe interior cars more than base interior cars and looks as though you have found one. Did you get any paperwork with the car to help authenticate it? What are the numbers on the transmission and the rear diff?

Love to see more pictures including the underside.

Looks pretty nice. Please fix the seal on the air cleaner. It's upside down. I'll keep watching....Joe

For some reason-Sam isn't able to post (I will have to get with Steve).


The shots with the manifold and the headers are before and after shots

I was going to say the same thing. Nice looking Z. I saw it when it was first posted over on camaros.net.

Hope you find that engine!

Thanks everyone, very fortunate to be on this site.
Thanks to Bruce for getting my Z28 up here.
Yes, the headers were put on recently and I will get that cowl rubber flipped over asap.
