Just discovered this forum and was wondering how rare a 67 Z28 I had bought new was. The car was oredered in British Racing Green with white stripes. It had a black bucket seat interior with 4 spd trans. It also had the hide away headlights. Now the good stuff. It was ordered with the 302 engine. The car was delivered to me with the  headers and chambered exhaust in the trunk, the cross ram dual quad intake in the box. It had the heater box deleted and the air cleaner had a hose that installed where the heater box was to get the ram air from the cowl. The car also had disc brakes on the front. I have never seen another one exactly like it and I wish I had it today.

P.S. This car replaced my special order (COPO) 1965 Chevelle 396 425HP drag car.

That is why the exhaust was in the trunk. The factory would not install it at that time. The car was ordered for me by a dealer in Pa that was very involved in racing at that time.

I will try to find the pics, but after going through two divorces I am not sure I still have them. The car was setup for drag racing and I was told that it was almost identical to the cars Penske was running in the Can Am series at that time. I know that the Penske cars had 4 wheel disc brakes and of couse he modified the suspension for road racing, but the engine, headers, intake that was all the same.

British green was a '68 color and the crossram was not available until '68, even if your name was Roger Penske. The only green available in '67 was the much lighter Mountain green. Are you certain what you had was a '67 and not a '68 Z? What was the name of the dealership you ordered the car from?

I think we'd all enjoy seeing some pictures, if some can be found. I did have some questions about his car based on what was posted. I'm not trying to chase him off in any way or be demeaning. As the old saying goes, pictures are worth a thousand words...

Sorry but when he says he had chambered exhaust in 67 I question all of it. He says he ordered it ? How did you order Chambered in 67 ? Has anyone ever heard of chambered in 67 ? How do you even fit a exhaust system in the trunk ?

Aluminum heads were very briefly optional on the '60 Corvette. They had porosity problems and although withdrawn as an option several examples still exist. Hardly a "back door" part.

As for the car in question your memories conflict with facts established over more than 40 years of scrutiny. So look for the pictures, give it some more thought but please get back to us!

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess he ordered a 68 in 1967 and mistook what he had.
