It is not consistent with other tags of the same week, I have a bunch of tags from the same timeframe as this one and they don't have the same characters style on several of the numbers.  So yes I would say it is a repro.  The body number is also probably the original number though.  No telling what the car was originally now, was it just a color change on a Z, or was it a base 307 coupe.

X2 I came to the exact same conclusion...bad characters but body num was prob original.

This may be another point if so admin please move to appropriate category.
Referencing Camaro Assembly Process auth -JohnZ
specifically Vin Assignment.

Once Chevrolet received the bodies from Fisher, (1 VIN)the Chevrolet scheduling rules and priorities took over, and that process was managed by the Body Bank operators, releasing units (or 2 VIN) into the Chevrolet assembly system based on proper labor line balance and option workload distribution.

John where exactly was the vin assigned?
1. immediately upon receipt numerically in order from Fisher or
2. after being scheduled and released into Chev Assem based on line balance etc?
3. other

Yes Mark something does look off there...

100k no smog or manifolds that'll run $2000 ouch! I saw the Tail light lenses (x77 didn't have vertical stainless trim), however the correct ones are not reproduced. Reproduction interiors just look too plastic to me.
Really a very nicely done car if the numbers checked out as legit...

I've not too big on red cars since I was a teenager but I do like Garnet red when it looks like that one!

It's really not a semi gloss, Here is an untouched unexposed place on a 69 SS showing there is a reflection and a good bit of gloss.

Here is Elkhart Lake with a 68 Z (stock) with 4 68 Camaro Conv's The 68 Camaros look to be a mix of RS/SS's and Std SS's the interior color is lighter than black would appear as does the hockey stick in other photos...

Yes under 10k would be a good deal for the car you describe.
That being said...  If it is the car in the above auction, it is not in as good of condition as you described, the tops of the fenders are rusted away in the Ebay auction pics. IF the tops are that bad the whole unibody structure is QUESTIONABLE AT BEST, you need a bore scope and time to inspect the car EXTENSIVELY.

Red interior is going to be difficult to get original pieces, try to save the door panels and dash pad if at all possible.
I know a guy who bought a low mile 69 L65 4spd Survivor so he could remove the complete Red interior for his RED RED RS/Z.

A friend purchased a fathom green black int black top real Z no motor trans for 15k recently. 
I would kick an extra 5-10 for Silver over Red and RS.

I am not sure what colors were used for what, I'm just documenting what I have found for posterity's sake.












Original 1/4" return line Rubber Hose Appears to be dated October 02 1968 anyone else have similar?

I know I have seen it before, but that is a neat detail and I would love to see some original cars with the stripe.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Gear reduction unit on: June 07, 2014, 08:02:31 AM
going through a list of Window stickers in Jerry's book I found the following (probably a few more out there) I have listed what model they came in although there may be overlap none of these showed it.
Would the ECL codes indicate the different transmissions? 
3 ECL codes for the M20.
One used with the Z28 3.73 to 4.10
One used with a L35 3.07
One used with a L48 3.31

there were 2 for the M21
one with the Z28 3.73 -4.10
one with a L78 F70 14's 3.55

2 for the M22
One used with a L72 F70 14's and 4.10
One used with a Z28 and 3.73's

Personally I love stripeless Z's I think they are the ultimate sleeper, with the flat hood & even moreso if D80 is omitted...
If they weren't behind you with an early 68 you'd have 302 emblems... put a 4.56 M20 in Ashgold sans stripes and it would be brutal at a stoplight, they'd never see it coming.
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Red Line tyre measurements 68 SS RPO-PW8 on: June 06, 2014, 09:36:14 PM
3/8 was the number that always stuck in my head...
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Is this paint color combo possible ? on: June 06, 2014, 05:32:28 PM
My girlfriend pointed out that she asked 3 questions... She was wondering...
Confirmed with an English expert. That was not phrased as a question and is not a question. It is a 'musing'. Could be amusing too. 


LOL I am going to use that next time she and I have a disagreement...

No - on the trim tag of my Norwood built Z. (GG) Original owner verified  he ordered the car stripe delete , spoke with the man about 20 years ago who shot the stripes in 69-70. The 2nd owner had it done when he ordered the cowl hood through Milad Chevrolet.

Ok I hadn't realized your car was stripe delete, that throws a monkey wrench in assumptions.
