There were magazine articles back in the '70s or early '80s that stated the '67 Zs only came in Capri Cream. That was obviously an assumption on somebody's part but people have taken it as gospel. The 1967 Z-28s were available in all the available colors right from the start of production and there have even been a few found in special order paint colors.

Thanks for clarifying that Jon. I was thinking it was an article written before Z28 production started, but obviously that was not the case.

The engine block is original! I have seen pics. If the owner wants me to post them, I will.

Wasn’t the plan originally that the 1967 Z28 would only be available in a certain color or limited colors?

Or am I not remembering correctly?

Depends on what you are going to do. Back in the late 70s when my dad was drag racing a 67 Camaro with a DZ 302 one of the cams we ran was a custom ground Crane 0.620 lift solid roller, 13 to 1 compression, angle plug shaved heads, magneto and ran on aviation gas with an M21 and 4.88 gears.

Cam manufacturers used to have a number to call and would help get you what you want based on your setup and goals. Not sure they do that any more.

Scott posted this picture in the Californian thread, but I see a 1967 Z28 show car in the lower left background. This is at the New York International Auto Show. Check the Z-28 license plate.

What else do we know about THAT car?  Scott?  Jon?

I was going to wait a while in order to spread posts out a bit, but here is the 68.

So far I have only the one pic.  And I did one "zoomed in".

More.  None received of engine stamping, trans stamping or axle stamping.

I did ask for an engine pad pic.

If you want pics posted, email them to me.

And your engine information would be  V0516MS  7N224653

Here are some pics. I can try to do some zoomed in crops later.  Enjoy. I am not sure if there was more than one of these, but I imagine there was.

I will try to do the 68 maybe next week.

Credit for photos to GM.

That VIN is for an early May built car.

At least one of the tags is not original to that car.

I am still looking, but the pic had no information attached with it.

Two more.  Photo credit to GM.

Partial car on the right is a 6 cylinder.  The one on the left is an RS/SS 350.
