Plenty of sellers will describe their cars as original and then list off all the items they’ve modified or restored. While there’s no shame in maintaining a car over the decades, exaggerating the originality of a car gets tiresome. We can’t levy the same charge, however, against the owner of this 1974 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 for sale on Hemmings.com, who has replaced only the tires – a wear item, after all – in its 42 years. From the seller’s description:
This is an unrestored original example with 16,502 actual miles. Original factory paint with blk/wht Z28 decals. Original F60-15 wide oval bias-ply tires recently replaced with BF Goodrich radials mounted on 15″ factory Rally wheels. No rust, no patch panels or rust repair on this Z28. Front and rear spoilers, factory spot welds in the rear quarters. Solid rust free door bottoms and jambs. Original body side molding, dual sport racing mirrors with driver’s side remote. All original glass, excellent bright work. Original bumpers with rubber trim in excellent condition. Inside the car is completely original. Factory shifter, 6000 RPM redline, AM/FM, key buzzer, carpet, seats, door panels and weatherstrip. Everything works. Pebble grain is still on the factory steering wheel. Rear window defogger option. Under the hood is as you would have seen at the dealership in 1974. It has a 350 high performance engine with the factory air cleaner element, aluminum valve covers, overflow canister, original hoses, clamps, deep groove alternator, factory exhaust manifolds with a new complete exhaust system. Equipped with PS, PFDB. Looking in the trunk, still has the original factory spare Rally wheel with a new mounted BF Goodrich radial tire. Factory jack, original trunk mat. No rust or moisture with all the factory spatter paint. Truly a very low milage original unrestored example that has been always garaged. The underneath still shows factory undercoating. Owners manual, original dealer brochure for 1974.
