I thought the attorneys got involved with the Rally Green Z. Maybe he got his money back? Never really heard the out come of all that.

There was a guy in my area who did a lot of Corvette resto's as well as other muscle cars. The place is gone now. Rumor I heard was that he's in jail now for misrepresenting some Corvette that he sold several years ago.

I love 55 Chevy's, but what they are doing to them nowadays  doesn't appeal to me. I like the 60's/70's hot rod versions, but I hardly ever see them like that anymore. I guess today's versions don't jive with my nostalgia version.

Show how naive I am. Never heard that. Guess I better not tell anybody that I used to street raced! They'd spot me for a fraud in 5 seconds!! Cheesy

That one didn't behave or sound like any z28 I've ever seen or heard...  it made the fella who made the video look like a 'joke'....

I agree. Sounds nothing like mine. What kind of exhaust did it have?  And why the always on backup lights?

After reading Gary's post I'm curious to see what mine says, since I know the original dealer (or at least I think I do) by the original new car warranty sticker which is still on the back of my rear view mirror. We'll see if the report matches up.

Oops! Looks like I'm outta  luck. One of the missing ones 516355

So I'm assuming the M22 was only available over a narrow range of rear end ratios, thus only needing 1 part no.?
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Very Original 69 Z28 distributor for sale on ebay.... on: May 08, 2014, 01:52:48 PM
So are there other distributors with identical part no.s except the last digit? Or 2 digits? So only 2 characters would have to be altered to mislead?
40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Muncie Transmission tag (pn?) on: May 08, 2014, 01:48:50 PM
So there were 2 diff parts no.s for each of the 3 trans - M20, M21, and M22?
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Muncie Transmission tag (pn?) on: May 08, 2014, 08:41:39 AM

Based on bcmiller's post below, were different PN's used on Muncies based on the *rear end ratio*??  Why would they do that??
(I'm trying to learn my 'Camaro new information for the day'...  Smiley

Because each different rear end ratio required a different plastic (I think) gear to make the speedometer read correctly.

So if I understand this correctly, the block has been decked so the originality of the block cannot be verified that way. The casting date of the block is Aug 68 on a May of 69 build car, which also brings into question the block's originality. Then there are questions regarding the VIN stamping on the block. I do not see how the block can be verified as original. It could have been replaced at some point, and all the other parts of the engine, and of the car for that matter, still be original. For the $$ involved, I can see why the scrutiny.

Here's mine for comparison. Wouldn't the first for numbers be the same on all alternators?
