We took it to 6000 rpm and it pulled around 320 hp. It was bored .020 and new pistons and cam were installed. We kept it as original as possible. Still a 30-30 solid lifter cam. Has the DZ carb and 69 heads.

Thank you. I bought the car in August when the paint and body work was completed. The restoration started about a year ago. The car was found about 12 years ago in a barn in NY and sat in my friend's shop since then.  It was a drag car and the odometer and title show 27k miles.  It is an X77 D80 dusk blue Z with standard black interior. It has the original rear 3.73 positraction) and numbers matching engine. Missing the original tranny so I am putting in an M22 from an early 70s Camaro.

Not much rust but GM quarters were installed and the floor was replaced since the car was tubbed for racing. Fenders and the rest of the metal is original. I am trying to track down pictures before restoration started.

I am not a wrench turner...yet, but love muscle cars (I had a 69 Mach 1 in high school). I am doing my best to restore it back to original condition.

Gary my car is being restored.  I plan to go to the shop on Friday and I will check. It was a drag car but the metal is all original (other than the tubed area).

My 69 Z was delivered to Robert Chevrolet (Long Island NY) with a production date of 8-29-69. Looks like the dealership is still in business. I sent them an email requesting any info they may have on old sales. Let me know if anyone has any info on this dealer that may help in my investigation of my car. Thanks.
