My father was a dealer in the 50-70's.  Select vehicles often had vinyl tops installed to provide ADP.  (additional dealer profit).  Although unusual to have brown vinyl top on Z/28.  Rarely have I heard of a Z/28 to receive an aftermarket vinyl top unless there was a either a defect or a warranty claim.  Nevertheless, I also was the proud owner of Z/28.  As a college student I ordered a new 1969 Burnished Brown Z/28 with white stripes...best color ever!  Interior in my car had black carpets & dash with white seats and door panels.  Also it had a dealer installed under dash 8 track player; wood grain dash; front and rear speakers, tinted glass, cross ram in the trunk (never installed and sold with the car); cowl induction hood, spoilers front and rear and it did not have a console. Also, it also had a factory installed 1970 Z/28 steering wheel and the car was built in Norwood, Ohio.  Unfortunately I sold the car to pay for grad school and would love to have the car back. I trust that it is a survivor...
You mentioned your car came with a cross-ram in the Trunk so can you discuss how you ordered and any details pertaining to that.

cross ram in the trunk (never installed and sold with the car);

No Z/28 EVER came with a cross-ram setup in the trunk - if you wanted to buy one, it came in a box over the counter in the dealer's Parts Department.

Burnished Brown is one of my favorite colors from 69 along with Rallye Green. Saw a Burnished Brown 1969 Z/28 a couple years back at the Charlotte fall swap meet for sale. It was a really nice car and there was a good price tag on it! Maybe someday I'll find one in my price range although for the amount I can afford it will have to be towed home!  ;D

Hate to use the "S" word but if you "sold" a car or 2 you could probably get 1, and maybe you could drive it home (if you lived close by).

Yeah that's what the wife says too! I've got a good hunch though that if I sold one she would want to use the money somewhere else then so long Camaro! Besides I've had the 67 since I was 16 and the 69 is in process. Maybe when the 69 is done I could part with it but I'm attached to the 67. The C-10 is just a driver for around town and needs a bit of work itself.

I read that the same way initially...   but he's not referring to a big block, but instead using 'BB' to represent 'Burnished Brown' color...  :)

Yep meant burnished brown. What's funny a guy on yenko.net mentioned a car that sounds like the same one the dealer told me about. Might be red now
