Silver 69 Z28
« on: June 09, 2016, 03:37:15 AM »
Here's a nice survivor that Steve has.
This car was purchased new at H.O.B. Motors in North Plainfield, NJ by Don K. The car was dealer inventory and on the lot. The car has few options: console, gauges, and deluxe comfort weave interior. No spoilers, no cowl hood and not even a radio, although on the dealer invoice a Motorola AM radio is noted. The original owner had it until 2009 and put only 32k miles. Never modified and even the smog was never removed.

I'm not sure which 'Steve' this is owned by, but he definitely has a well-preserved and gorgeous '69 Z28.. :)

Thanks for posting this car Kurt. A very nice unrestored car with few options X77 car. Looks like a valve cover swap by the original owner. 32k miles after 40 years, that just amazes me. I am sitting on 47k miles up till 2007, and it is impressive to me the fore sight by these original owners to preserve their cars from the beginning. The no spoiler/ flat hood is almost a give away for a special car now a days... :)

Thanks for the kind words. What is amazing to me is the original owner owned a Sunoco station and never modified the car. This may have been a 40th birthday present to himself. I believe M20 trans with 373's is the best combination for the street. The car has road rash and had some paintless dent removal, but overall the paint is amazing, interior is like new, underside had dealer undercoating removed and the floors are gorgeous. There's something about the way an untouched car runs and drives.  The flat hood, no spoiler look is growing on me....:)

Is that a 'new purchase'? or a newly traded for car, Steve?   (hopefully you didn't trade your halloween Z..  :)  )

No this was a cash deal for the Silver Z28 and a driver LB RS/SS L78 I sold in 2004. The great pumpkin is a keeper after chasing it for 25 years. I finally have that car all dialed in except the front shocks I replaced are horrible so I have a set of KYB's to install. The silver Z28 runs perfect!

Couldn't agree more - it is nice to see a non-spoiler flat hood 69 Z28. Especially a true 32k mile survivor! Very nice.

Steve I agree M20 3.73 is a brutal street combo... outrun a 4.10 M21 car all day long off the line or on the top.

I would be interested in driving that combo. I have a M21 3.73 and once you get off the line it hauls ass. I have driven 2 of my friends M21 4.10 cars and they drove similar, only thing I noticed were the RPMS a bit higher once you got into the 80's. I have had a M20 in a couple of vehicles and while it may have a lower first gear to get off the line, it wasn't noticeably that different. I did notice that the gear spacing was a bit more than the M21, when short shifting, so you weren't necessarily in that sweet spot like the M21, where there is hardly any drop off between shifts. Just my experience. I also drove a Z with a M21, and a 3.50 ratio, what a dog off the line  :P And each gear it would get way up in the RPMS when the cam would kick in. A little to close for comfort, to the 8k range for me.

I've had two M20- 4.10 cars both were BRUTAL off the line. 
I figure that the M20 3.55 combo would be a great all around driver especially if you were on the highway 30% of the time.
M20 3.55 is better off the line than a M21 3.73 and great on the top for RPM's.

So your just losing the middle shifts, since the ratio of gears are farther apart?
