I have seen that color on quite a few '65  Chevelles and Impalas, but not on a Camaro

I believe Pontiac used it as well. Seen it on a 67 Firebird and a 65 GTO. Unusual color and unique to say the least. You have definately got to be confident in yourself for a man to drive a car that color as my dad would say.

yep the paid know all there is to know about Z/28s experts screwed up and still will not admit their mistake. i bet i was driving and autocrossing Z/28 before these experts came on the scene.
new Camaros owned 68 and 69 Z-28. new Corvettes owned 59,62,63,64,65,66,97,99 02,05 and 08.

Neat color for sure and a very unique Z28. There is a thread on Team Camaro that Brad posted about finding the car, connecting with Clem for the original documentation and the current restoration.

The thread at Team Camaro only recently got unlocked, at the specific request of the current owner of your old car, on condition that the color issue was left in the past and thus allowing the thread to move forward as a build thread. Reviving the discussion on another forum brought about my comment, nothing more.
Does Brad know about this new thread?

Let's not start the war all over again on this site. No need for the negativity.

To be honest, the older pics of the paint look silver. My gut said orchid at first until I read what everyone else had thought. Now I'm going back to what I originally thought, Orchid. That is going to be one unique looking car. Should draw some attention.
