Kurt indicated for every 10 cars that were ordered with black, maybe one was ordered with white. I think I got that right. I'm happy it's white. It makes it so much different than others...Joe

I'm sure the white top *helps a lot* in Arizona's sun.. Smiley     That's a great car with it's options.
I like the halo vinyl tops also, although vinyl tops do introduce some additional problems as to 'upkeep' of the cars.
I love the yellow houndstooth interior; it has to be the most rare of the interior combos..   I almost bought a yellow/black with yb houndstooth Z28/RS at one time, right after I found my orange one in 1976..  Sure wish I'd bought it.. Smiley   $1900... Smiley

Here's some pictures of the 1968 Z/28. I purchased it in March of 1976 for 800.00. It has been restored twice. All sheet metal is original but engine & trans is not. Rearend is original 4.56. Car came with console, tach & gauges, spoilers, wood wheel & black houndstooth. I added the rest of the options years ago when you could find this stuff everywhere...cheap...Joe

Joe, What all did you add, option wise? Do you have a pic of what it looked like when you first got it? In its $800 form? Car looks outstanding now. Like the color.

I added Power windows, am/fm radio, headrest seats, tilt, front guards, sports style trim & power steering. I now find this interesting the 2 cars had the high end interiors but the base exteriors except the 69 has the special front bumper. I have some older pictures of the z/28 when it still had factory paint. I had a roll bar & 11.5x29.5 firestone drag 500s on it at that time. I'm trying to get the pictures to crop correctly so I can post them...Joe

Joe--I have 4:88's in the car now and the OE 4:10's on the shelf. Also have a set of never used Richmond 4:56's. Been mulling over going with the 4:56's. Overall pretty satisfied with that gear? Cruising?  Car has M21 with the 302.Beautiful car by the way.

I like the 4.56s for street use. Can't go out on the freeway too well. I don't know if you would notice a difference between your 4.88 or 4.56. I owned the car for 10 years thinking it had 4.10s also thinking that was the factory ratio. It found out it had 4.56s when I changed axle bearings. They're factory & match the code on the housing...Joe

Punching in the numbers(racer's math) is a fair difference in engine speed at 55 ,however not commuting with it.we'll see ,minor decision. thanks. Always heard 4:56's were a "happy medium"

My dad bought this for me in 1985 with the stipulation I could not sell it or he gets it back.   Picture is a senior high school proof in 1990.

Awesome pic, the Cragers, a vintage build. Did you opt for the hood with the hood pins?

I did a lot of mods when I was 16.  The 327 was wore out so we built a 396.  I put the hood on, wheels, and traction bars.   Also the car has a 4 speed, Weber aluminum flywheel, and scattersheild.     Had WAY to  much fun in the car if you get my drift.    And I still have it along with several others.

Did you ever make it to the track, to see what your set up ran?
