I think having Jerry look at it or another Camaro expert would insure you are getting the real deal, a couple thousand is small potatoes compared to buying a fake Z, then your talking more like a 30 k swing

I would say there is not that many unrestored cars out there. first gen z/28 cars got used and abused by most, and finding a true matching numbers car is a find these days. You can put the sale on hold while you look at other cars, as long as you won't regret it if it sells to someone else. When i bought my car I wasn't going after a car with all the options. I wanted a unrestored Garnet Red (no vinyl top) Z/28. My car is late build (08C) car so it does have a tach, and the D80 spoiler package as dictated as standard equipment at that time of the year when it was sold. The owner did order it with a cowl hood, but other than tinted glass and a AM radio, it doesn't have many other options to speak of. No console, RS package, power steering, or X33. Which is fine with me, because it reminds me more of a strip special car, just the basics. So buy the car you want would be my advice, not the one you think others will want in the future.

Seems like I have seen that car before, and it appeared to be a very old and possibly original paint.

I think one point that needs more investigation, would be the rear stripes and that the car was possibly hit from behind and had a slight repaint in the rear. have you looked under the car and close up inside the trunk?

It is the move away from liberty towards something else that concerns me. Apparently a lot of people do not see what is happening this way. Time will tell if I am correct.... I hope I am not!
a lot of people get all their information from a 30 second sound bite. People vote based off of even less. Think of all the time we spend checking out a car before we go look at one. People don't research at all and go to the voting booth. So that is how the fund raising for advertising is such a large factor. The policy/candidate could be the worst ever but if it sold to the people through media as being great, and outspends the opposite view it tends to win. Problematic, sure. To me the question is how do you get the staunch republicans, or hard core democrats to actually educate themselves, and same goes for all the younger people who get their information from TMZ or Jon stewart. A very small fraction actually are aware of the current issues at hand. If you asked most people right now about "a ceasefire" they would think you are referring to ferguson mo. , and have no clue about the middle east, or ISIS in Iraq, or the Russia/Ukraine, or Iran. And now that the ferguson story is the headline, the border issue takes a back seat again, and for me that is probably my number 1 issue.
They (most uniformed people )only have knowledge of what the social media is talking about.
That is my take

thanks for the insight on production probables.

Toad FYI as far as worth. One way to figure it out is what is it worth to you if it is all numbers matching. And then what is it's current market value, which is what you are referring to. They did not make as many 68 Z cars as 69, but they still seem to go for a little less in the market place. For the average 68 Z that is numbers matching I would say 35k to 50k, would be a good range, originality or cowl induction, rare color (corvette bronze) would account for the higher prices. This would be a basic idea for you. others may have a different evaluation ...

That seems pretty far off being built the same week? Unless there was a odd month where all the cars that month were dated 7C. Jerry please enlighten me on how the numbers of his car could still be possible with his having the same build week. thanks

Are you still apprehensive about the car? What if I may ask is holding you back? ( I assume it is a fair asking price and you have the amount)

toad if you are a mac user you can take a screen shot and resize it to upload. It might help, it might not. just a suggestion.

Maybe it was traded after the fact. Or while it was in production.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Where to cut roof off 69 coupe on: August 17, 2014, 01:16:41 PM
Geez, you should get in contact with KERR he needs a roof and a lot of other panels, if you don't have a car that needs them maybe you could work something out with him
