Title: 1968 special paint
Post by: RPOZ28 on December 29, 2017, 10:43:20 PM
We're black stripes on a blue Z28 considered special paint? This Z28 has a - - on the cowl tag.

Yes, stock stripes would have been white, special paint would have have been ordered to get back. I personally think black and blue look awesome together!

Looks like it has body colored rally wheels which definitely have been observed on some special paint Camaros. Does it have a blue vinyl top?

It sure looks blue in the picture and agree with Bryon as many of us would like to know more about that Camaro.
X2 on the great eye Jon as that did not jump out at me.
On a side note, love the 65 goat beside it as that is one of my favorite cars.

It was bought new at Vernell Chevrolet in Tennessee. The original owner was in the Navy and ended up in Groton CT with the Camaro. He traded the Camaro in on a 1972 El Camino at Scuncio Chevrolet and Bob Johnson handed the car over to Steve Starre and Carl Roberts to run in his race team.

This photo was taken after the cowl hood was added not long before it was traded in at Scuncio.

So it was originally Lemans Blue, black stripes and black vinyl top?

Any docs that indicate the details of the special paint?

Sitting right in that photo and in the Bob Johnson photo.

Any idea where Vernell Chevrolet was located in TN?  Was it in or near Knoxville?

Since my 69Z is a Scuncio car I have over the years gone over a lot of Scuncio photos and information and that car is in several photos that I have seen. I think one with a big block and tunnel ram. Although the pics are old I always wondered about the color?

Just googled Scuncio. There are several pics of the car and others in vintage drag photos.

I like the black stripes, not a fan of body colored rally wheels. Any documentation that it came that way? Not a doubter, just asking.

Depends on the shade of blue. http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#ExteriorColors:T:ExteriorPaints
Tripoli Turquoise had black stripes.
