Decoding/Numbers / Original stamp or not?
« on: May 22, 2015, 07:13:41 PM »
Guys so happy site is back up. Let me know what you think of this stamp. I compared to the stamp in Jerrys book and thought things looked good with the month code and DZ part of stamp. Not sure of VIN PORTION. Let me know. I am considering partnering up with a guy on a car. Thanks. I have the original window sticker and protecto plate if that will help. Thanks

General Discussion / My Z arrived today!

Hey guys - I have been real quiet over here after posting the links to those two pieces of yellow art that you all had vetted here for some time. Well after countless late night hours....much to my wife's dismay  ;D, this arrived at our home today after a two day journey from Plano TX.  Want to share and start a discussion.  Many thanks to Darell for all his help during this time...could not have pulled the trigger without him.  The prior owner posts in and I found a thread of his that started even prior to him finding the car.  MacNeish certified the car as a survivor about 9 months after his purchase in 2007.  Virtually everything on the car including the paint is original.  Other than the smog, exhaust manifold, spiral shocks, rear leaf springs, two rear wheels (that are not date code correct but correct ones were sent with car in trunk) and the carb which is also not date code correct, the car is virtually untouched.  Being new to this I'm curious to find out what you guys think about the necessity of correcting the above items.  Prior owner was a an originalist but told me that he didn't correct most of these items that Jerry identified because the car would drive and run all wrong.   Let me know what you are some pics:

Guys - I am new to the site and was introduced to it by Darell - in process of restoring numbers matching Dusk Blue/White top 69Z.  Found these two cars on and was curious to see what you guys think about the "matching numbers" and the stamps in general including the TT's.  Just taking up the hobby and need help from the pros.  Scroll down on the pics to the end of both posts and you will see all the numbers on both cars.  I don't know much but these made me want to verify.  Much appreciated.  Thanks Rob
