Other versions certainly had their strong points, but the 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 was simply the best all-around Z28 ever built. It was a muscle car that had come into its own. Camaro kept its 108-inch wheelbase that year, but otherwise underwent wholesale change with a new coupe body that was an instant classic. The Z28's heart was it's new engine. Trans Am racing now allowed destroking to achieve 305 cubic inch, so the Z28 appropriated the Corvette's 350 ci LT1 V-8 as its sole power-plant. A timeless small block, the LT1 had solid lifters, a hot cam, big valves, aluminum pistons, 11.0:1 compression, and a 780 Holley four-barrel. It was rated at 370 bhp in the 'Vette and 360 in the Z28.
