I have a 1969 Burnished Brown Z/28. I was wondering if the math guru's could break the 2.5 percent and give me an estimate on how many Z/28's were this color?

Thanks

Mike

I have only seen one camaro painted Burnish Brown ..I was very impressed with the color, even though it never sounded like it would look all that well...The one I saw had white interior.  The white interior defiantly worked well with the BB...What color is your interior.  .

Mike I have wondered the same thing as we now own a '69 BB Z. I never see this color at any local car shows in Canada, not sure how often they surface in the US.

Eddie, I think the car you are referring to is out of Virginia and owned by Foster, beautiful car with the white interior.

I like Foster's car with the Ivory interior also. Mine is a black std interior car.

So if there were 20302 69 Z/28 built and BB was used on maybe 2.5 %   whats a rough figure?

We have a very close friend that has a BB 69 Z/28. Its an X77 car he bought brand new in Virginia when he got out of the navy in mid-69 and went to work for another govt agency ( read spook) its your classic Z as its the base model, no frills non RS car,  flat hood, no spoiler etc. Only options are U17 and power steering with white interior. It was a true survivor with original exhaust system, suspension YH wheels, paint and interior but 3 years ago he had it repainted and new interior installed which I advised against but its not my car. He also removed the stock exhaust manifolds and smog equipment and installed headers but has all original parts stored away. He has all original paperwork including dealer invoice and POP. The emissions decal ( what is left of it) is on the top of the fan shroud? I'll try to shoot some pics to post here. Its a beautiful color and we park next to each other at the local Friday car cruises, everybody thinks we are twins except we have an X33 fathom green car but they look really great side by side!
Happy 4th of July to one and all. Fly the stars and stripes proudly

Saw a real nice Burnished Brown Z28 at Ocean City Maryland this year, It is now my girlfriend's favorite color. I think it had white stripes.

Thats hilarious about the Green comment. I was driving into a car show about 3 weeks ago and it was overcast and I heard the guy say " here comes a green camaro". Then I heard people think it was Black also. The Sun really helps the true color.

I saw a BB Z28 here in Oklahoma about 20 years ago or more.  It had worn original paint.  I remember commenting on not seeing very many BB 69 Camaros.  He made the comment about maybe painting it another color.  I don't know what happened to it.   I do remember looking at the cowl tag and it was a real Z28 X33 or X77 and had the spoiler option code stamped also. 

Just my reminiscing.  I had a hugger orange SS RS at the time.

Many years ago, I painted a Burnished Brown JL-8 car. It's not a bad looking color either.

My father was a dealer in the 50-70's.  Select vehicles often had vinyl tops installed to provide ADP.  (additional dealer profit).  Although unusual to have brown vinyl top on Z/28.  Rarely have I heard of a Z/28 to receive an aftermarket vinyl top unless there was a either a defect or a warranty claim.  Nevertheless, I also was the proud owner of Z/28.  As a college student I ordered a new 1969 Burnished Brown Z/28 with white stripes...best color ever!  Interior in my car had black carpets & dash with white seats and door panels.  Also it had a dealer installed under dash 8 track player; wood grain dash; front and rear speakers, tinted glass, cross ram in the trunk (never installed and sold with the car); cowl induction hood, spoilers front and rear and it did not have a console. Also, it also had a factory installed 1970 Z/28 steering wheel and the car was built in Norwood, Ohio.  Unfortunately I sold the car to pay for grad school and would love to have the car back. I trust that it is a survivor...

So what part of the country were you in when you sold it Kobe?  Maybe someone here can track it down.. Smiley

Tracking it down would be easier with the VIN.  But I do think it would be worth looking for if you want it back.

Oh, and I like the color a lot!

My '69 Z/28 clone was originally burnished brown with a dark brown vinyl top and ivory interior.  It was painted dover white with the vinyl top remioved 2 years before I bought in the '05.  A friend here locally has an original burnished brown Z/28 with black interior. It's a very nice car but not my cup of tea. I would have not bought the car I did back in '06 had it been burnished brown.  I don't care for the color.  I have seen quite a few "61" painted '69's over the years.  Most of them must be in Nor-Cal.

I was at the local Chevy dealer Friday talking to the salesman who has been there since 66. He said there was a BB z28 in town for years in a garage. He said the car was raced and came up for sale and they went to look it and the battery was in the trunk and some other mods so they passed on it. I believe he said it was sold and repainted a different color

KobeSauce, I have to reply to your short story relating to a 1969 Camaro Z/28 in Burnish Brown/with Brown Vinyl top.  That vey car you described was my first "hearts desire" back in the day.  A fellow man ordered it, (1969 Camaro Z/28 w/Brown Vinyl top) and got drafted in the Army to fight a war in Vietnam.  The car sat on the lot into the 1970 model year, and I thought if I waited long enough, I could strike a bargain.  Well, long story short, I waited to long, and some lucky fellow spotted this shining gem and bought it.  This has been the only such car I have ever come across.  All other Camaro with this color, (Burnish Brown) do not have vinyl tops.  This color is still my favorite.  I now own a 1969 Camaro SS/RS Garnet Red 4-speed Big Block Camaro.  Hope you find you dream car someday...........Don

You mentioned your car came with a cross-ram in the Trunk so can you discuss how you ordered and any details pertaining to that.

cross ram in the trunk (never installed and sold with the car);

No Z/28 EVER came with a cross-ram setup in the trunk - if you wanted to buy one, it came in a box over the counter in the dealer's Parts Department.
