About “Ray's Z28/350”

1991 Z28 5.7 with a few mods.

Here are some of the main RPO codes.
B2L Engine, 350ci
G92 Rear Axle, performance
J65 Brakes, power front disc and rear disc
KC4 Cooler, engine oil
MX0 Transmission, automatic with overdrive
QLC Tires, P245/50ZR16 blackwall
UU8 Radio, stereo, Delco Bose

In 1991 the Z28 name returns replacing the IROC-Z. All the lower valances were redesigned and the side valances were fitted with scoops in front of each wheel. The Z28 was given a large Ferrari style rear wing. The word `CAMARO' on the front license plate panel was replaced with the bow-tie emblem on the Z28. The hood louvers from the previous year's IROC were replaced by `power blisters' on the Z28. Engine designations were removed from side valance badging and only appeared on rear bumper. The center rear brake light was moved from the spoiler to the inside leading edge of the hatchback glass.

The standard wheel for the Z28 was a newly styled 16 inch wheel. Standard tires for the Z28 were P235/55R-16 tires; P245/50ZR-16 tires were optional on the Z28, and standard on 350 Z28 and Z28 convertible. The RS was available for the first time with 16 inch wheels. Tires for the 16 inch wheels on the RS were P235/55R-16. The RS also got grid taillights to match Z28.

Happy Cruzing...

About “Fox Rod”

I bought this car in October of 04', one owner and bone stock right down the the exhaust and air silencer. It was stock grey two tone titanium before I painted it custom Dupont Gun Metal Grey Pearl. I daily drove it until I bought my 96' GT in 2010 and retired it to the garage and only drove it on nice days sometimes to work and the occasional trip to the track for some fun. I regrettably sold it in April of 2013 after the purchase of my 2000 GT Convertible.

This was my first GT and since it was bone stock when I bought it I had a lot of fun with it and it was the perfect Mustang to cut my teeth on and super fun to drive even with just 225 stock HP. Before the car was sold I had a lot into the engine and the car as a whole. I kept the car exterior stock with the exception of changing out the rear wing because I liked the LX one better, Stock clean Grey interior with nothing but the stock gauges as I can't stand to see a Mustang with over the top ghetto gauges.

I had started to prepare the car for boost via Procharger but after I bought my 2000 GT I started to loose interest in the 87' and then sold it. That's one decision I wish I could take back,

A lot of people have emailed me asking if I could give them the paint code for the Gun Metal Grey. I do have it IF anyone if still interested in using it on their car.
