WORLDS RAREST CAMARO
« on: November 22, 2003, 10:59:43 am »

Here are a couple photos of what "Muscle Car Review" has termed the "Rarest Camaro On The Planet" in a recent issue of which this was the cover car. This car belongs to a friend, it is a real assembly line built 1968 Z-28 Convertible that was built for Chevrolet general manager Pete Estes. Chevrolet engineering had also installed a cross ram induction set up and rear wheel disc brakes. Also came fully loaded with options including rear defog on a rag top! The owner says a cool million will buy it. Considering  the Hemi Cuda drop tops are valued about the same, the price could be possible as this is the "Only" first generation Z-28 convertible ever built.
Thanks,
Motown

Dan, this car was built in 68 and they put the crossram and fiberglass crossram hood along with the JL8 service package rear discs on it!  Too bad it isn't an RS as well, that would be the ultimate Camaro.

Jeff,
 I have always wondered why the car did not have the RS option. It has about everything else, power windows, rear defog, AM/FM with console mounted Multiplex unit, deluxe interior, walnut wheel, Tic Toc tach, console gauges, speed warning, and I am sure things I havent thought of. RS would have been the clincher. When the car left GM ownership the Cross Ram and JL8 were removed by engineering, the current owner restored the car with the correct date coded parts that GM removed.
