 My 12D 1968 Z28 was ordered new there, they are claiming to be the 2nd largest corvette dealer in the world.  I'm guessing they have been into performance cars since there founding being they had such an early Z28 on the lot but have not been able to find any information on the history of the dealership that verifies this.   The original dealer principals have since passed away and I've reached out to the current generation that operates the store but thought if anything was known it would probably known here.

After many years of trying I just located the 2nd owner of my 68Z28, he bought it in 1969.  I'm in conversation with his son and the mother currently and waiting on the father to chime in.  They are divorced but I shared pictures with the mother and she has confirmed it was theirs and vividly remembers driving around pregnant with the son in the car.  We believe there are numerous pictures and stories to come.   Sometime you get lucky if you keep trying!!!!!    More to come

Decoding/Numbers / 1967 SS350

I have a lead on another interesting car I might try to acquire and wanted to be sure before I go and check it out.  The car has never been restored but the original engine is not in the car, what appears to be the original engine is included but in pieces.  My question is... Would an "MS" 350 have a small journal crank as other 67 and back are or would it be a large journal?  If it is a large journal would it be a 4 bolt main or would that not have happened until the 1969 model year?  If it is small journal obviously ( I think ) it would be a 2 bolt main block. I'm pretty sure the car is legit but I would like to have any info I can to cross check data.   I don't think it matters but the car has a 01D build date from Norwood

Decoding/Numbers / What is the earliest known 68 Z28?

Hello All
  I aware early 68 Z's are pretty scarce but I have never seen any numbers or registry of sort showing the earliest VIN for a 68.  Does something like exist?  I've had a 4th week of December car since the early 80's that has been sitting since 1976.   I would call it a wounded survivor but I do have the original block and most all of the engine along with the rear end.  It does have the original Fathom Blue paint, 719 interior with a fold down rear seat.  My goal for this year is to finally begin putting it back together.
