Originality / Re: Glass Norwood Los Angeles
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:39:35 AM »
 I can give you a "possible" explanation. When we build out a model. Gm would give us the final total needed. That is what we would produce about 3 weeks to 4 weeks ahead. Its possible Rossford did not have the second Gen contract and were busy producing whatever replacement contract they got to take its place "OR" spent three weeks producing the second Gen glass. Our plant (Collingwood opened in 1968 and did not temper glass until 1970 I believe) Its likely Lathrope was going to produce all the aftermarket glass and was still in production and in the mad scramble to build more 69's was the only option for three weeks while Rossford got there production schedules in order to start production again.
   You can imagine this was a nightmare scenario for all parts suppliers.
   Again only a possible explanation.

Butcher job on the rear seat partition. No bottom bar for it. The package tray fold over is terrible. With that VIN on the oil filter and tranny there should be  D80 on the trim tag and the antennae on the front fender.

 I am not an expert but there is something else stamped behind the M and it "looks" like it has been ground sideways to the broach marks behind the MO. The experts will certainly chime in on this to as I don't like the fonts on the VIN. But l know little about LA stamps

 Well if you check the 10D build date and VIN  How does a Jan 302 engine end up in and Oct car with the correct VIN ? stamped on it. No pics but a lot of matching # stuff and "correct stuff". Unless one of the guys has this in a database I call BULL----
  Either its original from the factory or its wrong. If you have an original DZ but NOM for your car SAY SO. The market will dictate a fair price for a correctly advertised car. Re bodies, Re-stamps, Restoration engine all mean the same thing "FAKE" Gee if you "cloned" the crown jewels would they be worth as much as the original or would they get priced accordingly as fakes ?

  I don't think there is any issue with how the car was represented at BJ or how described by Jerry. The issue is with the original description by the current seller. He bought the car knowing it was not an original matching #stamped engine then tried to sell/flip it as if it was for a lot more money. I don't like dishonesty no matter how it is spun.

 Emailed him on EBAY asking about re-stamped engine. He replied "thanks, are you an interested buyer"

  No one here will tell you why they think (know) this car is a fake. If they did then the fakers would know what they did wrong. But if you do enough reading of threads here and see enough trim tags and follow along you can start to get a good idea. I know very little about Z28's but after it is pointed out as fake it is a very obvious error.

 I will give it a go for you.  09D along with the VIN starting at 710. Puts it at 4th week of September 1969. X codes started in December of 68.  So it could be a real tag I am not an expert. The experts here can tell you if the tag is real and the body # and VIN # line up.

  Oshawa had a truck and a car plant. Toured the car plant in 1972.

   I did see the seal Kurt. But it is not initialed by George and the colors are off. The printing is smudgy not sharp. Mine is from 2004 which obviously is a bit different. But any from the last few years the blue and red are very distinctive and they are all signed/initialed by George. Unless he stopped doing that ?

No D80 on the trim tag in Aug. of 68 must be Aug. of 69
