Pete B has owned this 1968 Camaro Z/28 for the past 48 years, originally finding it back in 1972 in the local paper.
When he came across it, the previous owner had the Camaro just sitting out with all the windows open, exposed to the elements. Rust had begun to set in during those first few years. The original 302 small block was partially torn down, with valve and piston damage. The top half of the 302 was already gone, the owner having sold off the parts.
Now that Pete is retired, he’s gotten the itch to restore this rally green Z/28. He’s already got a high output rebuilt 302 with a Holley 4 barrel carb and an M21 Muncie paired to a Hurst shifter taken care of.
