The only AMA-published height dimensions are ground-to-top of roof, which is 51.1", and ground-to-top of cowl, which is 36.4"; those dimensions are for 69's.

Wouldn't you need to add an extra inch for the Z28 to account for the 15" wheels?

Nope - the Z/28 design ride height (a function of spring height at design load) was lower than any other Camaro model.

Hi Enio. Do you know the factory ride height of a z-28 1969 camaro. In particular the ground to bumper height and /or the lip of fender to mid hub. Many thanks.

'69 ride heights are specified in terms of design front and rear suspension heights (spring deflection) and rocker-to-ground heights; there's a chart in the UPC 0 section (sheet A10) of the '69 Assembly Manual that shows how to measure them and gives the numbers for each tire size/option condition.

Hi John,

Regarding UPC 0 / A10 in the Assembly Manual...

Do you know if the measurement is taken from the ground to the flat finished part of the rocker panel, or to the "unfinished" flange that hangs a bit lower?

Thanks.

It's taken to the flat finished lower surface, not to the bottom edge of the weld flange.
