Upcoming Auction Has Vintage Z28 Camaros in White, Orange, Green and Red Attire

The Mecum Auctions Summer Special event is shaping up as a monster car collector party, with something like 1,000 cars crossing the auction block. We are still skimming just the surface of the iceberg and have already managed to find a quadruple offer worthy of the most ardent retro Chevrolet Camaro aficionado.

Part of the Marty Nelson collection we have talked about recently, this could lend you a poker-style ace hand if someone manages to snatch them all at once. Even if collectors decided to take home each Chevy individually satisfaction should still increase very quickly at seeing any of the Camaro RS Z28s presented here.

Everything looks pristine on each one, the only difference being that not all of them belong to the same generation. We start chronologically with a lovely Ermine White 1968 Camaro RS Z28 belonging to the original generation. The hidden headlights grille cover is also shading the 302/290 hp V8 engine with a Winters aluminum intake and 4-barrel carburetor.

The new owner is getting a car restored back in 2011 with features such as powered steering and brakes with front discs, a Hurst shifter and bucket seats.

Next up are the Hugger Orange and Citrus Green 1970 Camaro RS Z28 twins. They would be technically and visually indistinguishable if not for the different colors.

Both feature a 350/360 hp V8 engine with Winters aluminum intake, 4-barrel carburetor, finned valve covers, a dual snorkel air cleaner and a dual exhaust setup. Even the interior features are almost the same – the couple has the original black vinyl trim, a Hurst shifter for the M22 4-speed manual transmission and a comfortable power steering.

The Argent 5-spoke wheels are a clear departure from the ‘68 Camaro’s rally wheels but these are shared not only by the two 1970 examples, but also by the non-RS 1971 Camaro Z28. The Cranberry Red unit is of the rare “split bumper” type and has a 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood.

This example has also gone through a major restoration process and comes with highlights such as the 10 bolt Positraction differential, Soft Ray tinted glass, sport mirrors and suspension as well as a set of Goodyear F60-15 Polyglas GT tires.
