Rickey E’s 1969 Camaro Z/28

Built From The Ground Up

Rickey E’s 1969 Camaro Z/28

Rickey bought this 1969 Camaro in 2018 as a fully completed stock restoration. The previous owner got it to as close to original as one could for a 50 year old vehicle.

This Z/28 has the factory high revving 302 small block that the model is known for, along with the factory Muncie 4 speed transmission.

“I love the body style and the power the 302 has and the sound of a 302 engine is awesome!”


He used to have a Camaro Z/28 back in the seventies, but by the late eighties he had sold it and regretted it ever since. Once his wife passed on a few years ago, he decided to try to find another one to cope with his loss.

Since the previous owner so thoroughly restored this Camaro a few years ago, Rickey’s simply been replacing wear items such as gaskets and weatherstrip.

"Being able to find reproduction parts and OER parts"
