Chassis no. 124377N216227; Engine no. 7N216227V0322MO. Marina Blue with white stripes over white vinyl. 302/290hp, 4-speed, Hurst shifter, tube headers, cowl induction, power front disc brakes, 3.31 Positraction, pushbutton radio, Deluxe interior, Rally wheels, trim rings, Goodyear red line tires, heater.

Evaluation: Represented as and appears to be the matching numbers engine. Excellent paint, chrome, and interior. Bright, crisp gauges and gorgeous engine compartment without being overdone. Restored like new with better paint, chrome and assembly although the description says it has “NOS GM sheet metal (not original to the car)”.

Bottom Line: Well, this is exciting, a Z/28 without 4-wheel disc brakes or a cross-ram dual quad intake selling for roughly double what comparable cars bring. There was no accounting for the enthusiasm (and deep pockets) demonstrated by the Mecum Harrisburg bidders both for exceptional cars like this Z/28 and for cars with abundant and apparent shortcomings. Spending their money before it becomes worth less (as opposed to “worthless”) is a fine idea but paying well over market value isn’t and recovery of the premium brought by this immaculate Z/28 puts great faith in long term inflation, which is a false equivalence.
