This looks like it could be a shoot for one of those high school year book ads, temp tag and El Camino on the right.

Having worked in a GM plant on inspection that trunk fit doesn't look good !


Are those wheel covers factory for '67s ?

Agreed, poor trunk lid fitment, and yes looks like factory wheel covers.

I always liked the atmosphere in this photo  8)

Hard to tell, is it a stripe delete car ?

Re: reply143. That picture is of my Navy buddy Jimís Z /28 from an earlier post of mine.  It was, according to him, the 6th Z/28 off of the Los Angeles assembly line. He sold the car back in the 70ís, but still has the original window sticker. I do have a copy. Donít know what happened to the car. Did Google search of VIN, but no luck.  It was such an early car.The headrests were an option. Donít know if the spoilers were deleted or just werenít ordered.  Thx for posting

Spoilers were not included with Z/28 equipment until April 1, 1969. The Car Life Z/28 was not built with them; they were added for the test. It did have stripes.

As in other vintage photos of VN built Z/28s, the tailpipes appear to be painted black.

Let's see that window sticker.

Just a 158 before mine (124379L503829). I am surprised it would be the 6th Z off the line though, since my car is a 10B, and I thought they had been making them for over a month at that point. I wonder how he came to that conclusion?
