That's why I'm such a fan of this site, like-minded people who often go the extra mile to help a fellow member.
Glad you got the car with no issues or missing parts Bentley; is that the X22 car?

X22 car? Yes! Thanks Tim, you are one of the great ones here, if I may ad.

So is the 68 Z posted on the net, or how much exposure does it have, where you feel there may be other guys that could buy it?

First off I like the 68 Z just based it possibly having the original drive train. It looks like both rear quarters have had some work done to them. I would look inside the trunk and wheel wells to see how crusty they might be, or take a magnet to see how filler has been used.

At first glance, the car looks to be a great original driver, how many miles are on it? Also how long has the seller owned it? (what has he done to it during ownership?)

Lastly I would make sure the VIN is clear with Virgina's licensing department, and verify what kind of paperwork you will be required to have in your own state to transfer ownership, and get a clear title issued if you decided to purchase the car.

Price???

I am glad we have have each other to lean on here, and Hawk was able to step up and another mission accomplished.

I have been in your shoes, your lucky he gave a good heads up. I got one of cars stuck in a guys shop one time, what a pain in the neck.

I am guessing you have a PC. With the picture up,  I think you can go into tools, and resize the image that way. keep sizing it down until t shows as being less than 200KB. Any computer geek stuff I don't know how to do, I just do a quick search on google, and 99.9% of the time somebody has step by step instructions on how to do it, or there i a you tube video showing how. Hope this helps

Yes we have all seen them:
http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/cto/4802238332.html
Probably has over 100k in it and just wants 35k for it...

or
http://sandiego.craigslist.org/esd/cto/4804796728.html
for slightly less $

With how many Camaros out there are already tubbed I am surprised guys still feel the need to do it to there own cars.

Only a 69 owner would invest $150,000 into his car and then only ask $80,000 in return.....

He is just trying to spread the love around.

Hopefully the original engine will bridge the gap with some of that information for the car. Once the car is verified or the owner is satisfied it is correct, another question would be - Do you restore it to its glory days as a track car? or back to somewhat stock?

We will see if he goes back to the small block platform...

Here's a funny one...  http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/4808445196.html

Current seller keeps getting flagged and removed because of this "warning" listing.

Well you know how those 68 Camaro owners are.... Cheesy

Glad you provided the entire VIN sequence number Ronnie, and that this looks like it might work out as a win-win situation.
Gives me hope that my block may turn up again someday.

Austin, did you search the VIN, or recall the details from the "Hog Wild" thread over at sYc?

I had read that thread over at Yenko, but seems like every other Z story contains a missing motor. So no I didn't put it together that way. I read the CRG story and once he posted the complete number, I started doing searches on the web with different combinations of 9n627007, n627007, and so on then after a little while came to that thread. ( It is fun to look sometimes) Another CRG-er probably would have found it if I didn't.  Wink

After re-reading it I felt kinda sorry for the guy considering there is so much speculation around the numbers on the car. But now if they can figure out the timeline, this car may be worth the time and effort to do a full resto on, now that it may get the original block back.

Keep the faith your block (s) are out there, some may have been put into a clone waiting to be discovered, or under a guys bench, but keep searching guys!

I love the idea, and have done a similar idea with a very original silver 69 Z on eBay, that one of our members ended up purchasing. 

The car you posted looks like a good deal as well. Good find

Great minds think alike! Cool

I sent him a PM over on yenko,
so I think that would be me...."your welcome" . My finders fee is original/nos 69 Camaro parts..... Cheesy

I couldn't have made the match until you posted the whole VIN.

So thank you.

So CRG thats another orphan that found an original body. What do we have like 5 to 10,000 of the original 20,302 Z cars left to go?

Hmm, could this be the block that goes to this former race car discussed on the Yenko site???


http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/586453/4

Of corse there is a mystery surrounding the cars vin and trim tag, so the block now turning up may not help matters.... Tongue
