Well I don't have a #34 associated with the car with what I have found. The first pic you posted shows the car with rocker moulding and a drum brake rear end. I am pretty sure Skip Barber was the first person to race the car and it had the J56 (rear disc)HD rear already installed at that point.

Actually researching more it appears Grimaldi rolled the car and actually rebuilt it, though it was not advised. It looks like it had a good amount of success into the 70's :https://historicracinggroup.com/grimaldi.php

And it is in museum now as "Old #80"  :https://www.nemsmuseum.com/articles.html?n_id=591

Jon, is there any other known pics of Skip Barbers 1968Z ? The rear end pic is great, but it would be great to see more of his car or the set up. I am told the car was eventually scrapped out. thanks

I sent the Dealer a heads up with a link to the production VIN page. Lets see if he follows the link and realizes the tag is a fake.

Just a 158 before mine (124379L503829). I am surprised it would be the 6th Z off the line though, since my car is a 10B, and I thought they had been making them for over a month at that point. I wonder how he came to that conclusion?

Also I thought the electrical and washer hose were strategically placed. Made me wonder if the rivets were questionable.

Do we know that the trim tag is legit?

I just did a quick browse through my "unrestored" car files, and the only car out of about 20 or so that has the silver paint is Skip Lacates 69Z dated late 09C, and even his just shows a minimal amount of the silver.
