Very cool stuff! Makes me drool over what I might have bought at the time had I known. I bought a 66 Chevell SS and 2 years later a Dodge Charger 440 R/T. Wish I had both back now.

So how did this car come to be built at all? According to Jim Mattison, who worked in the special projects division at the time, they needed approval to build the Z/28 for the general public instead of trying to build just enough to homologate for SCCA racing. They figured that if Pete Estes, the Chevrolet General manager, drove a Z/28 he would like it enough to approve the plan.

In '67 numbers were low because they didn't have the backing required to make it available to the general public.

I never stated, that they didn't state it came out in '67. Read it again: I was just saying they were some in '67, and some did make it into the public's hand (lucky son-of-a-guns). Imo, they would have found some way around Pete to build them. However it unfolded, We Came Out The Winner's.

Thanks-
