I have a 1971 Camaro z28 that is NOT numbers matching. My uncle purchased it with no motor or transmission. Around 2009 he had a 1970 motor that was rebuilt into a 383 stroker. It has a 1967 Muncie four speed that was rebuilt before putting in car and a rebuilt 3:73 rearend. The car has bumber and fender original to car and they need to be rechromed. The rest has been added along the way. It has all the suspension that came with it from factory. It has been taken down to frame and rebuilt. No frame rust Or modifications to frame. Car has been primed to keep from rusting. Motor and transmission have probably less than 200 miles on them but I get that can’t be proven. On the inside the dash has been replaced but everything else is original. Have original front and rear seats but they definitely need to be reupholstered with new cushions. Have everything for the inside to complete the car. The back spoiler has been added. Have the 71 grill that is correct for the car. Have door handle inside and out. I don’t know of anything that I don’t have to finish this car. Car was never in any wrecks so no bondo jobs. Can someone tell me what it’s maybe worth like it sits. Car starts and drives with no issues. Thanks Ricky

    How do you know its a true Z28? Whats the VIN? Not having a factory rear spoiler is a red flag...Fenders don't appear to have holes for the emblems. Honestly just not enough pictures to make an accurate assessment. Looks like a project car...running and driving is huge. $5K is a ball park, but depending on how it looks in person, the extra parts you have to finish it all play a part. A decent paint job is $7-10K...so consider what kind of car you can get these days for $15-$20K

    I’m with Dave@ztech on the 5-9K price range if it is truly a Z28. I paid the 9K range for my 71 almost 5 years ago and the pictures of your car appears to be better shape than when I bought mine. The reason I paid the premium price was because my car is a Rally Sport with the Z28 option with build sheet and options and a year dated CE engine. Good luck on the purchase l

    Your description says no frame rust. Does it have rust in quarters, floorpan, truck pan, window channels or fenders?

    If it is a rust free body, the higher end of that 5-9k range. Especially if you are anywhere near the east coast.

    Sorry guys but this was my uncle old car. We done a lot of work to it since these photos so I will update tomorrow. We have about 90-95% body work done. There is no rust of any kind on this car anywhere. I am going up and take a lot of photos tomorrow. I going to sell this one because I don’t like the 4 speed. I do have a 1970 automatic plain camaro one owner straight as a pin no rust no dents came with a 307. I will start to rebuild for myself one day.

    We have decided to keep plugging along on the car. My uncle had piled way to much junk around it to even move it out to take photos.

    No car is 100% rust free unless its lived in a dry garage its whole life or it has been dipped and properly coated for a restoration. Window Channels, inside the structures of the roof, inside the frame rails, inside the cowl, between the folded metal pieces etc..etc..

    Your correct. This car has been inside a closed building for the last 30-35 years and if it has any rust it’s not much of anything. I should have never stated it had no rust. I’m sure in areas we can’t see or get to may have some but I personally haven’t seen any on the body.
