that looks like it started with very clean body. I guess there is one less camaro on the road, and one more wagon. Unless they used a new Camaro body to make this?

So in 1968 you had a couple GM executives who wanted a specialty Camaro, 1 had a special order 1968 Z/28 convertible , and the other a 68 Camaro wagon.... makes sense. I await the 68 camaro/ el camino model.  :D

So did the whole production run of 69 Z 's come with the 660 only? maybe i have the wrong one...
( I am not in front of my car just trying to zoom in on a picture of mine, hard to see if it has it or not)

I see a return spring on your engine hook danny, and then on Loyds car no return spring there, but both of your cars have the water neck with a provision for the return spring, I am pretty sure my water neck doesn't have the provision for the spring. Did all 69 Z have that provision? or was this insignificant enough where some had it and some didn't?
Or just early cars had it? (didn't mean to hijack just curious if this has been raised before or noticed)

And the whole "Cross ram still in the trunk from the factory" we know was a myth that never happened. Jerry's book pages 30, 31 and 32
But nice sales pitch. Another issue going on with the car along with the ones already mentioned. The build date of 02B is to early for D80 on the cowl tag. This thing is looking very fishy. Fake trim tag I would say.

I understand this car is a sham for the most part, BUT there was a recent post by john mello showing vintage documents where 67 Z-28 did have the cross ram in the trunk, how long was done for and after seeing those documents how could you disprove that a cross ram didn't come in the trunk? thanks

If it is a CE block and you are selling it by itself, it may depend on the casting date. IS it a 4 bolt main or 2 bolt? Has it ever been bored out? .30 out? I would guess a bare short block that hasn't been bored out would fetch between $500 and $1000. It all depends on what someone may be looking for. Is this a block you have? you are buying? or you are looking for one?
If you have it or are potentially going to purchase post some pics of it with bore size to get more feed back on it

So did this the same car that did not have a trim plate?
Gasoline wise I would agree with has been previously posted, I would say the chances are very slim 87 would be satisfactory for your motor. Even my 396 325hp block which is 10.25 compression ratio (mild) and if I run less than 91 octane it pings and there is obvious pre-detonation while cruising. If you were only going to put gas in it to get it on the trailer or moving it around the shop then 87 may be ok IMO.

I had a Z with 3.55 gears and a M-21, the car was such a dog off the line, until you were rolling at about 20mph, then you were good to go. In fact I had to keep a close eye on the tach because the motor was still pulling well into the 7000 rpm range. I have have the 3.73 which is a lot better in my current Z,  and I would say a 4.10 or even 4.55 would be more ideal a set up for the 302 4 speed configuration.

Well in California with any cars that old, you are the expert, the DMV employee in charge of inspections has asked me what they should be looking for. I also have had them ask on a 65 mustang to look at the door tag, (which has the vin, trans, rear ratio, paint) the funny thing is, it says right on the tag "not for title or registration purposes". So you know stupid is as stupid does I guess.
