Many go fast optioned cars did not spend the money on air conditioning. The Z-28 was only available with out air conditioning.
Thanks. Heard about column shifts, just haven't seen a lot that I can remember except in 6 cyl. Camaros. LOL
Kinda like fold down back seats that I've only seen a couple in '67 Camaros. Not sure if an option in '68-'69. Lots of things we took for granted back then.

Yep, no air conditioning or auto trans in Gen 1 Z/28's. No convertibles ( except this one http://www.speedville.com/gm-chief-g...8-convertible/). Auto trans available in Gen II Z/28 with 350 engine. Got to drive a 70 1/2 Z/28 with auto for a month. Had the option to buy it in 75 but sold my 65 2+2 Mustang and instead purchased a '69 Z/28 with the original DZ motor, vinyl top, fresh air hood, console with gauges, and a clock in the dash. Still regret ever selling that Camaro.
