Feature Car: June/July 2018

1969 Camaro Z28, owned by Bill Fowler / Solo Speed Shop

This Lemans Blue 1969 Camaro was built the fourth week of January 1969 at the Los Angles vehicle assembly plant. It was "born with" a 302/290 hp engine (DZ code), M21 Muncie close ratio transmission and 3.73 positraction twelve bolt rear axle.

Bill started a blog on the car at this link, so for this month I am going to link there and only have limited text here in the Feature Car writeup.

Above are the trim tag and engine bay pics shortly after Bill bought the car in 2017.

It was originally shipped to a small town near Fresno - Marten Chevrolet and Oldsmobile in Reedley, CA. Around 1988 it came to The San Fernando Valley about 5 miles from where it was built! A man named Merle DuPrey bought it Merle was very well known in So CA as a Camaro collector of cars & parts as he had a very large collection of both now advance to 2011 Merle sold the car to, this is where the story is special! Roger Rodas and Paul Walker (from Fast & Furious) bought the car from Merle.

Bill - Thank You for letting us learn more about your car!
