I think you could have convinced a dealer to do virtually anything you wanted once the car it the ground there, but not Chevrolet. There is distinct evidence that my son's RS had Rally Stripes and a cowl hood from at the least very early in life. Its a 12c car so hood is out of the question, plus no hole or cowl stuff just the hood. Now were they added before or after the sale?? I have spent my whole adult life in dealerships and I can tell you we will do just about anything for a customer that wants to pay for it. If oyu came in and wanted a Z/28 with an auto, 2 days later we would hand it to you. You wanted stripes, done. You wanted a ZL1 running gear and suspension on a RS convertible, sign right here.

Anything is possible, the probable is in question and the documentation doedsn't exist so far, but it wouldn't be factory. I heard a story maybe even on here, have no proof, I guy wanted a 75 T/A with a 427, a week and $2800 dollars later the car was delivered, I think the customer already owned it for 6 months or something.

When I was growing up in Morgantown, WV, Wilson's Chevrolet would do this at the request of the owner/buyer. Mr Wilson said if it was availalbe it could be done, maybe the factory wouldn't do it, but they would. An example I specifically remember was putting 12 bolt rears in 71-74 Camaros, they did it because the customer wanted it and paid for it. The dealer covered the issues/warrenty problems not the factory, although I think they massaged the paperwork to get things covered.

This the best me I could get. I took a razor and carefully scraped the paint (almost messed it up) and it looks like there is a slight indentation like it could be a "C". It is so light that it is diffcult to see, plus the is the typically dent from someone prying there to adjust the belt.

This is great info, when I had my car certified we didn't check the date on this. Mine is 099R?8, I can't make out the shift, it almost looks like a 1 or I, not A,B, or C.  My car is an 04D build date, think this would put it in the window for original? When Jerry looked at my car almost everything was original, so I' m hoping this is to.

Thanks,
Paul C.

Photo below isn't mine, but it shows the correct routing; the 5/8" hose goes from the intake manifold fitting to the lower (inlet) nipple on the heater core, and the 3/4" hose goes from the upper (outlet) nipple on the heater core to the water pump. Both are clamped to the inner fender.

What is the decal on the driver's side inner fender for?

Thanks John. I found out that afternoon, right after my post, that mine was incorrect. Jerry M. is the one that pointed it out to me, he was in the process of certifying my car.

My Mistake,

Paul

My 68 R/S Z28 Nor 04D is not painted. It had been stored since 74, so I think it's original.
