General Discussion / Re: original paint 69 Z on ebay... "survivor"

That is a dream find, I rember reading about it on another site, a diamond in the rough. The stance looks right on to me. Since you have so much original paint , are you going to try to ruth it into a driver?

Bryan what are the dates on shocks front and rear? and what is the build date of your car(s). I assume you just have one set, but maybe both your cars have them.

Guys are resurrecting 69 camaros all the time. A lot of time it doesn't matter if it was a Z, or an SS or plain jane. They run across a pretty tore up body, add new quarters floor pans, whatever and then once it is painted most of the time it is recreated into an pace car, SS COPO ZL-1 or what ever style they want. The recreated Z is a common joke now, but I would take it a step further. IMO a clean plain jane 69 camaro without the Z/28 stripes or added emblems seems hard to run across these days. I agree with mark and would say around 50% and growing. A re-body is still pricey, so if it hasn't been crushed , it seems no matter how rusty it is it could be back on the road one day. Eventually it will be hard to find a 69 project car I imagine.

12A build week and an X33 trim code (plus a bunch of other tag issues) equal a repro tag.
so what was the first known week for X codes? (jerrys book says the first week of december of 68)

gotta be true to yourself. If you think your going to beat on it and don't want to damage the 302 , I would say smart move.

From a buyers perspective, without any paperwork to show it as a factory replacement I am not sure that it would garner more money for the seller though. The only reason I state this is his original question is - what would help with the resale value of said car. Would a CE block installed in the same car without documentation, I would guess probably not, but most of this discussion is hypothetical.
 It would seem "cortez Z Gary" (69Z28) would prefer a date correct 302, AND since he would have fit into your category of a once potential buyer of a original 69 Z less the motor the question may be posed to him: Gary, How much more would you have paid for a closely dated nom block had it already been installed in your car?

I don't see why it would get thrown out even if it was a restamp. It still looks to have all the correct internal parts, I think the major difference is the price it will fetch being original vs. re-stamp. They should operate the same.

yes roger is good for a lot of one liners. He is a guys guy. Wayne seems nice, but doesn't want to get his hands dirty now a days. You can't stage the auction results, much like "whats my car worth", its interesting to see what the sell thinks the car will bring, vs what somebodies actual winning bid is.

I would say if you got a block with your car and have it in and its running and you are happy with it, good. In the meanwhile you could try to locate a 302 with a date that would be close to what the original block in your car would have had. The other option would be a warranty replacement block, but IMO I don't think it makes much of a difference value wise between the 2. Once you locate a block with a date close to what your original would have been, then I would recommend getting as many date and correct parts as possible or in your budget. ex: distributor, alternator, intake, exhaust manifolds...., this way if you were going to sell it in the future, you could say while the motor is not original most everything else is as close to factory correct as possible, and you could list the parts and dates of what you have compiled to make the car as correct as you could. I would say IMO that would be the next best thing to a car with the numbers matching motor.
IMO the 302 4 speed only is what makes the Z/28 special or significant. You could put a 350 or what ever other block in it, but then its just like any other camaro but with Z emblems.
Why would someone want to buy a so called "original" Z/28 if it just had a 350 in it? you could by any v8 camaro and put the Z emblems on, and thats ok many people do!
