1969 Camaro Z28
The 1969 Camaro Z28 is one of the most iconic and sought-after muscle cars of all time. The model was introduced as Chevrolet’s answer to the Ford Mustang and quickly became a legend in its own right. The car’s combination of sleek design and high performance has made it a favorite of hot rod enthusiasts for generations. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at a 1969 Camaro Z28 owned by Deryl Seward and nicknamed “Goldie.”
The car’s stunning Inca Gold Pearl Coat paint job immediately catches the eye. The paint is a PPG product applied by Dwayne Hayes of Kings Auto Kreations, who also handled some of the car’s body modifications. The Camaro Z28’s body has been channeled and the interior features stock white and black houndstooth upholstery.
Under the hood, the car packs a GM 2003 LS1 engine with a Fitech fuel injection system and a stand-alone wiring harness and computer. The engine is mated to an upgraded Muncie 4-speed transmission with a hydraulic clutch and tuned headers. The car’s driveline also includes a McLeod flywheel and a 3.36 gear ratio.
The Camaro Z28’s chassis features tubular upper and lower A-arms and stock spindles, shocks, and springs. The car rides on Ridler 695 wheels, with 18-inch wheels in the front and 20-inch wheels in the rear. The wheels are wrapped in 225/45/18 and 275/40/20 tires, respectively.
Inside the car, the dashboard is stock, but the gauges have been replaced with Dakota Digital components. The car’s sound system includes a Pioneer head unit, amps, and speakers, all installed by the owner himself. The car also features an aftermarket steering wheel, a stock console, and a Hurst shifter.
Deryl Seward’s “Goldie” is a stunning example of a classic Camaro Z28. The car’s combination of classic design and modern upgrades makes it a true hot rod masterpiece. Whether you’re a die-hard Camaro fan or simply appreciate classic muscle cars, the 1969 Camaro Z28 is a must-see.
