1967 Camaro Z28 show car
« on: May 11, 2019, 01:03:05 AM »
Scott posted this picture in the Californian thread, but I see a 1967 Z28 show car in the lower left background. This is at the New York International Auto Show. Check the Z-28 license plate.

What else do we know about THAT car?  Scott?  Jon?

I think this is a very early build but I will let Jon Mello tell us more about this Z28.

1st picture: Californian, Z28 and Cherokee: The metadata for this image states, ď1967 New York Auto Show UNITED STATES - APRIL 05: 1967 New York Auto Show.

2nd picture: cropped version of the 1st

3rd picture: Rear of Z28: While Iím not positive, this picture was most likely taken at the Auto Show in New York because the color of the car is the same, the license plate matches the above picture, and the car is sitting on a floor/ramp that looks to be the same as in the above photos.

I don't have a whole lot of information on the car but I know it's in the group of the first 16 Z-28s built and was built on December 30th, 1966 so it would be on a 4P body.  I have never seen a picture of the car in its entirety.  I hope there are some out there somewhere.

What a home run lineup of show cars.  I love all three.

Would the White nose stripe on the Cherokee be a good contrast for color determination and comparison?

Wasnít the plan originally that the 1967 Z28 would only be available in a certain color or limited colors?

Or am I not remembering correctly?

I don't remember reading that. But if so, it would seem that Capri Cream would be a preferred color. The prototype Z was the same color. So it seems that someone with influence liked it.

There were magazine articles back in the '70s or early '80s that stated the '67 Zs only came in Capri Cream. That was obviously an assumption on somebody's part but people have taken it as gospel. The 1967 Z-28s were available in all the available colors right from the start of production and there have even been a few found in special order paint colors.

Thanks for clarifying that Jon. I was thinking it was an article written before Z28 production started, but obviously that was not the case.
