Z/27??

Was there ever a Chevrolet car with a Z/27 code?
Just curious.

not that I remember... Z24, Z28, Z34, Z71, Z66 have all been used on cars and trucks, but can't remember ever seeing a Z27

hmmmmm... 1971 Camaro SS option code was the Z27 code... just remembered that... lol

So I guess that means that the Z28 was higher than the SS, which apparently was the Z27. Then again, 27 is closer to #1 so I guess the debate will continue. Much like the debate about what the El Camino is: Car or Truck.

RPO Z27 was the code I ordered for my 71 SS. Z27 was never displayed as a badge on a Camaro like the Z28 emblems. For 1971 the Z28 was king of the horsepower ratings at 330 HP. The SS came in at 270 HP with the 350ci and 300HP with the big block. Big block being a $90 option and Z28 somewhere around $750 if I remember right.

So in 1971 the SS rpo code was Z/27. The Z/28 came in1968 so was the z27 taken then as well?

Different types of numbers here. z27 was a code to order the SS in 71. Z/28 was a model. I think the z/28 had a different number for the rpo if I'm not mistaken.

Z28 was the RPO for the Trans Am racing homalgamation (sp?) package and there was no Z28 'model' within the lineup, at least thats the way it was in 67. Not sure if that had changed by 71 or not.

Ya, forgot about '67 and '68. I think it changed in '69. Least I believe that was when it did. '69 you can actuall find Z/28s. '67 and '68, it's dang near impossible to find them.

Z/28 Emblems appeared midyear on the '68 Z. Prior to that it had just "302" on the fenders for '68. The '67 Z was devoid of engine size markings or Z/28

Z28 was the RPO code for all. This is a 1967 window sticker. Notice the Rally Sport package is Z22 and the transmission is "M21". That's where all this stuff comes from. The disc brakes are J52. The super rare 4-wheel disc brakes are JL8
