History of the Z28's First 25 Years

Z28 is the most famous Chevrolet RPO code ever. No other option code has become so synonymous with high performance. Other option codes have been used for well-known packages such as Z22 and Z27, but the option names/descriptions became famous, not the RPO number.

Windy City Warriors

From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.


Classic Car Overview

This was my dream vehicle back when I was in high school, lol… I bought the base vehicle in Florida as it was perfect for what I wanted: It had a full HEAVY DUTY fiberglass tub. It is very high quality and has built in Gel coat. The fenders, hood, doors, tailgate have been painted to match.

The drive train is old school, 360 V8 and manual transmission. Very Tourqey and deep, throated it moves the vehicle effortlessly. I had been expecting to find a 6 cylinder stick and had already purchased “5.3L ls swap kit including adapter for transmission, wiring kit, etc. I will sell that separately eventually.

But the motor was awesome as is, original Jeep drivetrain, and there was zero reason to change it out.

The suspension was a hot mess of cheap lift kit and manual steering. We pulled entire manual front end components and converted to power steering and completely replaced front end components.

We took the power steering box and pump and brackets from a grand wagoneer and made the jeep handle like a jeep instead of a tractor! Lol, not that far of change really, but its much easier to drive.  

Old Man Emu is the ultimate suspension system for CJ’s it’s the best of both worlds in driving and off roading. A 2.5” kit was professionally installed and made a huge difference.

This is Michigan, so I wanted hard top - I specifically ordered the hard top, and had used hard doors painted to match. 

I finished it off with the absolute perfect tires 33 x 12.50 x 15 BFG all terrains – NOT TRUCK TIRES….. I always run them low and mushy myself, but I don’t use this as a highway machine. As a matter of fact, after finishing it and changing everything - I have never really driven it.   That is why it is for sale – I accomplished my “1980’s” dream machine… But I have way too many toys…

If you want to negotiate prices – I can pull the tires and top and doors, they are pricey and  will sell on their own so you could save 6k… but you cannot save 6k and have them, lol…

You might see my other ads, I have too many toys and I don’t stop getting new ones, so some of them have to go.

I do not cut corners, I have things done professionally, but I have specific tastes too. 

I am not desperate; I am fair and will be reasonable on my prices– I won’t negotiate against myself on the phone. But if you bring cash when you come to check out my vehicles , well that is entirely different. Cash talks, BS calls on the phone and tries to negotiate.

Ideally, meeting during work hours is best as I have my mechanics who helped coordinate the builds available to discuss the vehicles. They know more about it than I do. 

Phone calls during work hours only, If you are bringing cash and plan on buying we can meet on weekends.

Phone: 248 860 4246 – ask to talk to someone about the vehicles for sale.
