I don't understand how it would happen based on what we're told about how the VIN was stamped on the various parts, but the stampings appear to be original and it's only one digit off (7 vs 1 in the next to last position)...??

In spite of his incorrect statement, this car looks nicely equipped for an SS convertible.  The green colors probably hurts it for sale purposes, although I like the green.  Better photographs would help it (I think).. :)
No photo included for the softtop, so I suspect it's safe to say it needs replacement.

I have a '72 T-top coupe that needs paint (I've mechanically restored it already).. maybe Hugger Orange on that one?  it came originally Steel Cities gray, but was repainted Mille Miglia Red many years ago.

... but Chevy did put Ontario Orange on '72 Corvettes... not sure how close it is to Hugger... :)

Sorry to disappoint you William, but I ordered this car new, and I have not removed the front shakers.
I have had this car since it came in to the dealer ( McQueen Chevrolet in Owensville, MO ) in summer of '69.
So please don't make statements you know nothing about!

Randy,

In 49 yrs, has your car EVER been in a body shop for body repair or paint work?   Has it ever been 'restored'?  Or been in a shop for mechanical repair?   OR has the car never been out of your sight; ie you've never let anyone but yourself work on it?

Dan's camaro has more value as a 'reconstituted' SCCA race car than as an 'original Z28', and as a restored race car, IMO he has more than sufficient evidence that it 'was once a Z28'...  although I'm not sure what such a statement is worth... as all the items which 'make it a Z28' are long gone... 

PS.  I suspect that ex-SCCA race cars with history might have as much or more value than a 'proven' Z28 with the critical parts missing (ie. engine)...

Dan,

I and I'm sure others would love to see that article (and photo)..  Can you post the article here? or scan it and post it (if it's hardcopy)..?

Maybe someone (or Dan?) can post a few of the car photos here?   I'd like to see the car's photos, but I'm too (old or smart?) to be a facebook client...  :)

  I wish I could correct my old posts, but water under the bridge.  I know a lot more now.
Thanks, Dan

Dan,  If you wanted to include your new information to correct the 'record', then I'd suggest you go find your old posting, and QUOTE it, and then add the updated/corrected information...  that would put all your info in ONE place and help anyone in the future digging into the car's history...  I'd suggest PUTTING all the info you have into the post... including owners/cities/etc...

PS.  Are you planning to 'restoring' the car (as close as you can) to it's original configuration??

PPS:  EDIT:   After I posted the above, I found that you had already *(updated)* your previous post!!

Good luck,

Gary

Hi Dan (racerdan)...  :)

Didn't you used to be pretty involved with 'C3 Corvettes', have a 'Spirit of America' paint scheme,  and involved with the NCM??  :)    if so, fancy meeting you here!

Gary


 
Who, ME?  Hahahahaha!  Hi Gary!  Yep, still alive, playing with cars.  Still have 2 Corvette, including my Stars and Stripes showcar!

... My (old) memory is beginning to wake up...  Didn't you come on this website about 10 yrs ago, basically asking the same questions?  I think we talked on the phone at that time...  I haven't seen you at the NCM in even more years than that...  :)

when I purchased my '69 in April 1976, I immediately went to the Chevrolet dealer and ordered all the trim/etc parts I thought I might replace when I 'restored' the car; at the time I thought I might do a restore in 2,3, or 4 years, but instead the car was garaged for 38 yrs instead... and my plan changed to 'preservation' rather than restoration over that time fram

I knew to purchase parts from Chevrolet even though the car was only 7 yrs old at the time because I'd gone thru the same process with my '55 Nomad (of looking for parts in junkyards, etc) before learning that even 20 yrs later Chevy still had some parts for them... so I thought to buy what I could as early as possible.  I think lots of people learned that lesson also, as most parts for special interest cars *like Camaros* disappeared quickly from Chevy's shelves by people buying them up for later resale... thus the high prices for NOS parts nowadays!

Seems the problem lies between the booster or the engine vacuum supplied to the booster...?
