Modern ’69 Z/28 Rally Sport Replica Headed to Mecum Auction

Do you love the looks of the first generation Camaros but the functionality of modern cars? Why should you have to choose between the two when you can have both? Recently, a 2002 Camaro Z/28 was added to the list of cars to be auctioned off at the St. Charles Mecum Auction in the middle of September. But this isn’t just a regular ‘02 Z/28 – it has been reskinned to look like a classic ‘69 Camaro convertible.

The ‘69 Z/28 Rally Sport replica has all the performance components of the ‘02 Z/28, including an LS1 V8. It also has full power accessories, an automatic transmission and air conditioning.

To make the car look more like its vintage counterpart, the ‘02 was reskinned with a more square body and finished off in yellow exterior paint with black race stripes. It also has RS hideaway headlights and classic Z/28 badges. The interior is complete with houndstooth trim for a classic feel.

If you’re interested in bidding on this unique modern Z/28 replica, it is set to cross the auction block on Friday September 16th at 7:10. While it’s not a true classic, this replica is sure to grab a lot of attention. After all, this car gives Camaro enthusiasts the best of both worlds – modern features with a custom vintage look.
