I am hoping Bentley has some contributions. I think he mentioned in the other thread that he had seen a BE with a peened C. I also am going to inquire with a nova site I am on and see if I can possibly get some examples from them.

NAh, Doug I would take $100 bucks for free all day long. They can hang up on me all they like...Its worth the $100. BUT their $100 would only hold it for a day.  ;D

I think "one of one ?" is a Ford or Mopar term.
Well with the Marti report on Fords, you can deffinetly see how rare a car is. And there are some special cars that are 1 of 1.

Mike: With all of the 60's muscle cars and all of the options that were available, you could switch one small option and then have another 1 of 1. With this car being Hugger orange (most popular color) I would say it is likely it is not 1 of 1.
More likely COPO cars when you look at all the options could be 1 of 1, because it was a relatively small batch of cars. Or even smaller the ZL-1, there may be no 2 cars that are exactly the same. 

While the 396-375 is a special car, they likely made larger proportion Hugger orange, just based off of color usage for the year. Then figure roughly 25% had the RS option. Just to put it in perspective.

Enjoy what you have Danny. You can only drive one car at a time.

Well put  but rarely considered!

Says the guy with 3classics in his signature... ;D

That will clearly be a thread just for us (forum) members, since core members see no relevance in the peening. It seems like it doesn't matter how many rear ends are shown to be peened, it will be met with contempt. But thats ok, myself and others are interested in the info.

I also find it interesting that Bryon says the only legit way a rear end could have been modified was with an X stamp over the "C".
Yet I haven't seen a picture of 69 rear end with a stamped X over a mis-stamp posted by him, or anyone else for that matter. ???

So now the NOS rear quarters are not included in the auction, or mentioned as recommending to be replaced. Also they do not post a clear picture of the quarters in either auction.
If it is a clean car it would be way cool to cruise as is.
I am not sure it is 40k car. I think the 31-33k that Danny mentioned 4 years ago is right there. If the (original) motor has had a fresh rebuild maybe 35k.

Interesting. Any pics?

William was/is there anything special about that pilot built Z/28?
Do you know when it was completed?

That is one lucky son!
How many guys when they are young think: one day my parents will pass down the classic car they have to me, only to have years go by and it gets wrecked or sold out from under them...
Curious how old is your son?

What is the original color?
 what color is it now?
What color do you plan on painting it?

Welcome to the CRG!
The NCRS is the source for finding the original selling dealer. the cost is $50.
Do some searches on the site, there is a lot of information posted to get you started.

Glad you have lightened up today. Have a drink on me, take a deep breath and enjoy life...

I understand the research process, and appreciate what gets posted when completed, BUT you can continue to post about what I know or don't know all you want... ;D

After seeing more examples of original rear ends built around mine, myself and others are confident in the information we have gathered.

Thanks for the suggestion though.   ;)

LOL, not bitter. That is why I posted the smiley face.

I am just repeating what Gary asked for earlier, and a consensus of many members when it come to them submitting numbers on their own personal cars, and then asking a moderator about other cars built around theirs, and getting nothing but "crickets" in return.

I know full well how the CRG works. thanks bro  ;)

no hate here just the facts. Gary and I can prod the moderators, I think you guys take everything to seriously sometimes.
