Thats a loaded 14's price. A loaded 1Gen could see $5K Compare that to cars of the 60's, not inexpensive.

that 67' does have Rally Stripes which were used on the Z/28 and a front air dam, although I don't think that was standard on 67's. I have also seen 67's without a rear spoiler.

67's did not have any badging. 68's had 302 badges for half the model year and then switched to Z/28 badges.
There were 67's built with the RS option and they did have the badging too.
funny in all those dimensions they give they did not give tire and wheel sizes.

We'd see all kinds of stuff running around on the streets in Pomona and Ontario back in those days. The Z/28 was a sleeper because it (usually) DIDN'T have any badges so people would think it was just the base model with no upgrades. They found out how wrong they were only after the light turned green lol.

Here's a link with some interesting back-story:

http://www.67z28.com/history.htm

I unfortunately owned a Triumph TR-7 back in the day. But for fun when it ran well and didn't overheat I would drive from Pasadena to watch my friends race SCCA at Riverside International Raceway. I remember being at Riverside Raceway around 1978-79 and witnessed one walk the field in an A production SCCA race held there. I was in love with the sound of a Camaro V-8 engine after that.

as a side note in the Trans Am series that those cars were made to homologate parts for, i'm not sure the 67 and 68s were even called Z/28's or Just "Camaros". I've seen pictures of the cars and Z/28 was no where to be seen on them. I have seen picture's of at least 1 Penske 69' that did have Z28 painted at the front of the fender.

Z/28 was initially just an RPO code, not a model name/trim designation so that would make sense. You didn't see Z/27 on SS cars afterall.

No competition imo, the 67 blows the new one away. 45 years later still a gorgeous ride. I don't see that being the case in 40 years looking back on the 14s.

For sure.... the hope it will perform in Z06 territory in a variety of venues across this country will soon be turned into talking points we all will enjoy READING about. We won't see too many of them on the street though.

"If you want a Z/28 with the performance you had in the 60's you can have it ... and it won't cost you any more of a price premium, matter of fact, it will cost less, and that's a promise"

Wheel width on the first gen. Z28 was 15x6 in '67 & '68, 15x7 in '69. I do know the first gen. Z/28s came with E70-15 tires (other Camaros including the SS came with F70-14 tires). The Z/28 badging was exactly what has been discussed here.

So, the '67 Z/28 was $3,527. The top of the line 1967 Corvette, the 427/435HP (Underrated) model was $5,617 loaded. So in 1967, the Z/28 was 63% of the top Vette price. Take that to today...
Top Vette today is ZR1 with 3ZR package at $122,600. x .63 = The new Z/28 could cost you $77,238 (loaded). Just having fun with numbers.

Interesting, however the top Corvette for the 2014 model year is a 3LT with the Z51 package at about $63 grand. Somehow I don't think the new Z/28 is going to be $39,690.

That 290 hp on the original Z28 is underrated but a lot to. More like 400hp

...I smiled very broadly when I saw the pic. Top of the food chain brawlers, past and present. Beautiful. Thing is... a butternut yellow '67 Z/28 factory stock I had the fortunate opportunity to check out that was for sale in the late 80's but the asking price was a bit too much for me then, and who knew anything about future value because the speculation didn't really exist much at that time...but it's a lasting memory.

Under rated or not, 400 hp then is a lot different from 400 hp now. I wouldn't be surprised if todays LFX V6 makes more 1960s era SAE gross power than the 400 hp that the old 302 'actually' made

That front splitter is adding a few inches to the length of the Camaro.....

Looking at the exterior dimensions of the 2014 1LS Camaro and comparing it to a 1967 Camaro I see where a lot of the weight came from. Though I find conflicting data on the internet about the actual exterior dimensions of the 1967 Camaro.
