For the 1967 model year, Chevrolet threw Camaro’s hat in the ring to join the “pony car club,” bringing its own curvy style in coupe and convertible bodies, and offering a plethora of cosmetic, comfort and performance options. The most popular combination was a base coupe with a 327ci small-block V8 and a 2-speed Powerglide transmission. However, options of more muscular engines established Camaro’s street credibility. The SS package debuted a 350ci small block, and the 396ci big blocks were available with up to 375hp. A regular-production option known as RPO Z/28, the Special Performance Package, included an exclusive 302/290hp high-compression engine and handling upgrades that made the Camaro eligible for the SCCA Trans Am Racing Series – and in its first year of racing, the reputation of winning 10 out of the 13 races made it all the more popular. The SS and Z/28 could be combined with the popular Rally Sport package – essentially hidden headlights, different taillights and an upgraded interior. Ultimately, the Camaro Z/28 was one of the most potent small-block production muscle cars ever made. Originally painted in Rallye Green, this example now sports a beautiful combination of Ermine White with black interior. What makes this matching-numbers Camaro Z/28 RS very special is its highly optioned features, including SCCA Trans Am-style front spoiler (which is supported by correct brace bars), front and rear bumper guards, vinyl roof, J52 4-piston power front disc brakes, RS exclusive taillights and black/chrome Rally sport fuel cap, reverse lights, special quick ratio steering, Tic-Toc-Tach, center console, wood-grain steering wheel, and right-hand outside mirror. Inside are all-vinyl seats with a luxury fabric option, molded vinyl door panels with built-in armrests, carpeted lower door panel and bright pedal trim with wood-grain accents. Engine codes from the Flint, Michigan, engine plant, intake manifold casting numbers, detail-correct GM hoses and tower clamps, correct Muncie M21 manual transmission casting codes (factory warranty replacement), 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears and Cowl Tag information from Norwood, Ohio, all add up to a real-deal 1968 Camaro Z/28 RS with a matching-numbers drivetrain.
