    Hi All
    New to this site.
    I have a 70 RS Z28 in Australia.
    Build sheet has a code ZP3 SPCL Paint.
    Part of the build sheet which is partly deteriorated has writing stripe deleted
    Does anybody know how many 70 Z28 RS 4 speeds were sold and how many were sold with the stripes deleted?
    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to NastyZ28!

    GM didn’t keep track of option combinations.

    There were 8,733 Z28s built in 1970 and the rest of the options make a subset of that number.

    Many of the z28s were RS models which also were equipped with a 4 speed but nobody can give you an exact number.

    The special paint option and lack of stripes makes it a fairly low number, I would guess.

    When you consider all of the factory colors and every possible option combination, there were very few cars with the exact same list.

    Here’s some more info on 70 Camaros.

    Not many cars would have received special paint. What color did the car receive from the factory?
    Any pictures.

    When you think about how cars where purchased then...I guess every car is almost unique "1 of 1". If I was a betting man....the ZP3 is "black".... the trim tag probably says "--"
