I don't see any red flags, but I am not 100 percent convinced at this point.

John also said
ďYes, the plug was present when the axle was painted at Gear & Axle. The Posi tag was installed by the axle fill operator at the car assembly plant.Ē

From what I have seen (Bryon) the paint that was used was cheap and didnít stay on very long on most cars. And I donít remember seeing any tags that were split.

Possible. But I have never heard that terminology used on a Chevrolet produced product.

Could be that the car was being sold on consignment and dealership didnít check the documentation over very well. I am not sticking up for anyone.

Whoever faked the paperwork will need to suffer the consequences.

Where exactly (which facility) did Fast Eddie work at and what was his position?

Side exhaust was not Regular Production Option (RPO) for any First Generation Camaro. Did the car go through the GM Tech Center before he received it?

Since the owner has passed away, as mentioned, the best way to find the car would be from the VIN.

For now, none of us know the whole story. I would cut them a little slack.

Buyers always need to do their homework first. Assume nothing.

Personally I am not a fan of just walking into a classic car dealer and buying a car that is finished. I have a lot more respect for guys that dig cars out of shelter belts, old garages, warehouses, etc. - and then they invest their own blood, sweat and tears into the build. But maybe thatís just me.

1968 - Orphans / Re: MO Code 302 Block for 8N422169 on CL in OH

Yes, I agree it would be nice to hear a true story of an engine being reunited with the car it came from.

I know of 2 Lemans Blue 1968 Z28s that were wrecked and I am 99 percent sure they were crushed in the 70s.

I know of another 1968 Z28 that was wrecked pretty bad around 1980 and it had some rust by that point too. I doubt it is around today.  The engine from that car was in a late 30s street rod the last I heard about it 15 or so years ago.

There is always hope, but people should not get their hopes too high.

Glad you are doing ok Bill but take it easy.  Do exactly what they say as far as rehab.
