What is the correct trunk lid striping for a Z-28 with a spoiler?

A: If the spoiler was installed at the factory:

The paint stripes go over the spoiler, and end at the bottom of the spoiler (and therefore not on the back lip of the trunk lid)
The Camaro trunk lid emblem was moved forward, up the trunk lid, from station 125.00 to station 121.73, a distance of 3.27 inches, and the Z stripe was masked (1967-68 only) around the emblem.
If the spoiler was installed by the dealer:
The stripes were painted on the trunk lid at the factory and thus, without a spoiler, run all the way through to the lip of the lid. The dealer installed spoiler was attached over the factory stripes and then the dealer painted the spoiler to match.
The dealer did not relocate the Camaro emblem.


As Gary stated earlier, for whatever the reason, it's not right.  I believe it was improperly done in the 19 years before you got the car.

I have a 72 72 car with black stripes instead of white.   Yes, I know it's wrong, but I'm happy with it.  It's your car do what you want to with it.   Cool

I find in hard to believe that's the original paint.   Looks good for almost forty years old.  Maybe the stripes were just improperly installed when it was painted.   Huh

There has already been a post and discussion about this car. Check the past posts.

Maybe he was high or drunk, or just didn't know what he was doing. Not a professional job.  I guess he should have bought Jerry's book.  Wink

I believe N9602043 should be 9N602043, which is the VIN of the car the transmission belongs to.  The February date aligns with the VIN.  If the car VIN matches the transmission, check to see if you misread the 8 for a 9.

A lot of money ($11,000) for a 30-40K motor that already had extensive work done to it.   Did he have the smog equipment to go with the manifolds?   Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the block was bored .30 you can add 5 Cubic Inches to the total engine size.  Don't get me wrong I'm not saying you got a bad deal, it's just something I personally wouldn't do.

When looking at the number three picture of the eBay car, item #320110448608, the front left Camaro emblem blends into  the black stripe. Is this the correct placement for the emblem?

  If I remember right, Hurst did not start the T-Top craze till 1975.  Oldsmobile had the first tops. I have never heard or seen a first generation Camaro with them. Second generation Camaros have them.

Jay. when a block is decked, normally all the engine identification numbers are removed from the rightside boss on the block.

Glad to be home, I spent the last four days working the track at Talladega.  I also had to dodge a few (Budweiser) beer cans.   Cheesy

 Let them soak in penetrating oil, and use vise grips to remove.  Sometimes tapping the top with a small hammer helps when using the vise grips.

Do a search on eBay and see how many hits you will get on cowl tag rivets.

Sounds like a butchered car to me.  I would stay away from it.

David, I have a non-AC car and my temperature selector has cold on it.  I believe an AC equipped car will have AC on the selector.  You should also be able to tell my the outside heater box.    Thanks Mark, you beat me to it. Wink

Not only the tag, but the rivits.
