1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: rebody Z made Hot Rod on: April 12, 2015, 12:38:58 AM
the barrett jackson catalog even stated the car is a rebody. i guess that shows somebody (the writer) was a bit um, slow in the catchup. and it was bid to $135,000, the number in HotRod must have been with all the added BJ pay checks. The bar it sets is kinda crooked................(no pun intended). It was kinda funny watchin', the bid went to 140,000.00 pretty quick, then the auctioneer announced it was a rebody and the bid amount dropped to 130,000 and it was a struggle to get it back up to 135,000. I've got a video of the whole thing.
and not only did the car "make Hot Rod", it was on the Official Barrett Jackson event T shirts. Yes I bought one.

and people say 302's don't make any torque, maybe it had lots of gear in the rear.

Can somebody please explain this all to me? How is it that what is now acknowledged as being a rebodied Z28 with a Jerry MacNeish  report from 2008 stating it has a "restoration drive train" ever be worth anything close to 148K. Confused..........

Is the VIN of the donor body known by anyone? Other than by whoever did the re-body?

I haven't seen where anyone is bragging about that one..  Smiley


Bragging? Hiding would be a better option. But then nobody really cares anymore anyway.

I don't think Barrett Jackson was ensuring anything. The bid went to 140,000.00 pretty quick, then the rebody was mentioned, and the bid dropped to 120,000.00. It was a struggle to get it back up to 135,000.00. Remember it takes two to play that game.

I was there and have a video with sound of the sale. I'm glad to see Pratt didn't get "hurt" on the car, and now everyone knows about the car, even the new owner. I have to say, when I heard the word, re-body, my heart skipped a beat. One thing, I'd like to know, how they figured out it is a re-body. Everyone was so sure it wasn't, back then.

I've got an idea, to, "put an end to it". Somebody buy my hotrod, tools, collections, cabinets, ect. I'll buy the car, and sell off the drivetrain, wheels, console, and build it back as a "minor" pro touring car. (Which is what I want anyway). That way it would not be what it is.....it'll just be another pro touring car, albet, a very pretty one. I can get license plates real easy and drive the thing. It would be me putting MY money where my mouth is............AND, I'll GIVE the documents to CRG so everyone will know about the car and it can be the end to this controversy.

(And now comes the shit storm).

Big infomercial, I guess a lot was learned about advertising with the closed down chevy dealership auction last year. Tell everyone and tell often!!
On a side note, I THINK I got a glimps of a green Z28, I wonder?

14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: perfectly imperfect? on: October 07, 2014, 12:05:17 PM
according to my book this is a '65 chevelle 327 300 hp.
it's dated L184, it had 461 heads.
casting number is 3782870.

i posted this because of the crooked alignment of the stamped numbers.
even the EB is a bit off of the rest of the engine code.
it's an original stamp, the block has never been decked.
just shows, perfect ani't always perfect.
