Would that same style of embossed lettering in the rubber been used on the A212CW filter installed in the 69 Z?
(I can't remember on Skips orange Z if you had a pic of that)
thanks Chick

Well I am in So Cal, and saw it on Craigslist here. To me it didn't look a while lot different than the red Z on eBay that sold for 23k. So I thought it worth mentioning. Both cars had a missing drive train, and needed rear quarters and trunk floor minimum. Red car had the correct tag,orange car may * be  an original Z since he says it has the correct mark behind the rear seat. Perhaps the  correct rear end and some other components would help indicate that. The reason I posted was merely to show there are still Z projects out there. The original more reputable cars have definitely dried up, and these types of cars are the entry level it seems now. So quite a big gap from these to the next level, and quite a bit of money.

I would think with both the red car and this car, it wouldn't make sense to do a full resto.

I think the mark behind the back seat can contribute to documenting a non X coded car. As far as the paint or spoiler, even the red car had the wrong stripe layout from a respray.

There is something reassuring about at least having an original X coded tag though.

Well we discussed that red 69Z on ebay for 23.9 that just sold. I just saw this one very similar to that car but 72 72 Hugger Orange for $22,500:

According to the map it looks to be located just south of indianapolis?

(One draw back compared with the red one, is this is a pre X code trim tag car, but he said it is present behind the rear seat.)

Seems like having the 327 in the line up would have given chevy a leg up, vs the 307.

K. I was thinking being originally red helped the sale. Other than black maybe *, I'm don't think another color would have had this car sell any quicker.

Ah no. Maintaining the car was like having a rolling restoration Project. Except at the end of day it was a citation, not a Camaro or something you could take pride in. I got the car around 96. There is a reason there were no others on the road. I assure you it was not a matter of  keeping up on the maintenance, lol

My Nana had more repairs in that car, than the previous 3 combined. I got the car with 60k, it did not make it past 100k. Broken motor mounts dragging exaust. It had the v6, but what a dog iMO. It got donated

I don't know to many guys who would admit to owning a citation let alone ordering one...
(My Nana bought one new, after owning a 69 skylark GS, 65 impala SS 4 speed, and a 56 bel air hardtop. Guess which one I got stuck with....lol

I hope someone can send you a sample of the gas line. I had to replace my original due to cracking.

Well even though it is rough, it is the right color, 52 52 Garnet red.... ;D

Someone will purchase this dream.

My question is what's with the different stripe layout on the deck lid, (where the spoiler would have been)?

A repaint, and they laid down the stripes more narrow?

Those pics speak for themselves, wow. Clean cuts, and great prep work, followed by a great install. Something to be proud of for sure. Thanks for posting
