Detail about this car
This 1970 Camaro Z28 was part of a "National Press showing" in February of '70 and was featured on the cover of at least one automotive publication (see details below) as well as appearing in "Camaro Muscle Portfolio" published by Brooklands Books in 1992. Spending it's entire life in Southern California, the car is in exceptional condition. Originally finished in "Citrus Green Poly", the current owner performed a minor restoration in 2007 and had the body refinished in the factory-correct "Forest Green Poly" with black stripes. A 1970 date-coded 400 cid Chevrolet small block was also installed in addition to numerous upgrades and optional equipment including an RS Front Spoiler. Aside from the original Production Broadcast / Build Sheet, (which states this vehicle is to be used for press purposes), documentation also includes original parts and repair receipts dating back to the late 1970's.

GM National Press Showing / Magazine Cover Car

In late January 1970, Camaro #3475 pulled out of the GM Assembly Plant in Van Nuys, California three days ahead of it's scheduled February 3rd production date. Specially ordered with both the Z22 Rally Sport Package and Z28 Special Performance Option, the "Citrus Green Poly" & black striped Camaro had already been reserved by Hansen Chevrolet in West Los Angeles. However, before the dealer took full possession of the car, it was fitted with a manufacturer plate (34F 015) and transported to the new car prep lot along with five other Z28's in various color schemes.

Over the course of the next two weeks, members of the automotive press (including Motor Trend, Car & Driver, Hot Rod and Motorcade) made arrangements to conduct extensive reviews of the new Z28's and either specified or were assigned a particular car. White vinyl adhesive numbers were applied to the front and rear windows of each car with a corresponding spec sheet listing specific trim, options, etc. The "Citrus Green Poly" Camaro was identified as #3 in the group and initially assigned to Motorcade magazine, which featured it on the cover of their May issue. GM Heritage Center has confirmed that only one "Citrus Green Poly" Z28 was part of the 1970 National Press Showing in Southern California and all specs listed in the Motorcade article exactly match this vehicle's original build sheet. The Heritage Center archivists are also in the process of decoding the specially-assigned manufacturer license plates from the 1969-71 period.
