1970 ½ CHEVRO­LET CA­MARO Z/28

New Zealand Classic Car - - Automobilia -

In­tro­duced in Fe­bru­ary 1970, the sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Ca­maro was pro­duced through to the 1981 model year. The car was heav­ily restyled and be­came some­what larger and wider with the new styling. The 1970 ½ is gen­er­ally re­garded as the most de­sir­able of the early sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Ca­maros, since the per­for­mance of fol­low­ing years was re­duced by the au­to­mo­bile emis­sions con­trol sys­tems of the pe­riod, and later the ad­di­tion of heavy fed­er­ally man­dated bumpers. For the Z/28 Spe­cial Per­for­mance Pack­age, a new high-per­for­mance 5.7-litre LT-1 V8 was of­fered, built from the ground up us­ing pre­mium parts and com­po­nents — and con­sid­ered to be a much bet­ter per­former than the pre­vi­ous 4.9-litre vari­ant. This AMT 1/25 scale model is all stock, fea­tur­ing rally wheels, bucket seats, stripe de­cals (in two colours), a sep­a­rate sub­frame, and ex­ten­sive de­tail­ing through­out. The com­plete model has more than 100 in­di­vid­ual parts!
