Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...beware the carefully worded ad again

The ad makes no mention of Indy Pace Car or Z11 but it does have the door decals. Built too early to be a real Z11.

The FMVSS label was required for cars built for the 1970 model year. A CA built '69 would not have had one.

No mirror was ever installed by Chevrolet on the passenger side. Available as a dealer-installed accessory.

If I still had a 1st gen I would strongly consider the new bias-look Firestone radial Coker tire offers.

IMHO modern radials look like SUV tires; don't like them at all on an old musclecar. Sure, you can get repro bias tires but they still suck just like they did 50 years ago.

Maintenance / Re: 69 Z28 battery

My interpretation of his statement is at operating temp, the starter spins the engine normally but it does not fire immediately. A friend had this problem with his new '69 Z/28 and it was frustrating. Took a few trips to the dealer to sort it out.

Mis-stamps are certainly not "quite common" and I wouldn't even say they are common.

They have been known to occur
is an accurate portrayal.

Since the dash top was replaced, the VIN tag was removed. Be certain to verify the hidden VIN on top of the cowl.

The ad now states:

THERE IS NO DOCUMENTATION ON THIS CAR SO IT IS BEING SOLD AS A CLONED L-78 396 SS.

They probably didn't know. Credit Blue Line Classics for quickly making it right.

Go to the deleted listing and click on it for pics of the tags. Top of dash has been replaced.

Correct; if the engine is original the VIN would be on the side of the block.

The slideshow on the website has chassis pics, no LH tailpipe adapter. About that pad stamp...

Decoding/Numbers / Caveat Emptor...ad is missing 'clone'

VIN not listed.

From the ad:

1969 CAMARO SS396 FACTORY 4 SPEED AIR CONDITION SHOW CAR
YES IT IS A NORTH CAROLINA ORIGINAL MATCHING NUMBER CAR


The X11 body tag says otherwise.
