If he would consider just selling the car I think it would go a lot faster.  But for now he only wants a trade..  No matter what its history during its life as a racer its a X33 D80 car.  No matter how you slice it; it's a Z car.   I wouldn't care if it had a Cummins diesel between the fenders I'd still consider it a Z.  For the record the car is very, very clean and appears to present great.  If I were in the market for a 69 Z that I wanted to race this would be the car I would consider.

Gary, your line of thinking would lend to someone having all the "correct" components for a Z on a 6cyl rolling chassis and that you would consider it a Z.

BTW this car has a legit trim tag, vin & doc proving it was ordered by Berger Chevrolet.

Nevermind found it.  Also FWIW I couldn't see the pic in Gary's first post until I created a login over on Tri-5

So let me make sure I understand a couple of you that are shitting on the car because it was modified from stock form and now is not considered a Z any longer?  Is there photos showing the trim tag or legitimacy of the sellers claims of it being a Z?

I had a company put my father's L78 Camaro on a porcelain plate for my parents head stone.  No issues.  It'll be 12 years in Oct and unfortunately I can not remember the company the monument company used.  I do remember it taking about a month as it was done overseas.  I agree with Charley find another company.

Z was NOR only.

Originality / Re: Kick Panel Vent Door Levers
« on: August 23, 2018, 12:00:58 PM »
Allows fresh air to come in from the cowl and tulip area into the floor board cabin area.  Someone please correct me if I am wrong but the Astro Ventilation was the addition of the vents on the corners of the dash for 68 to allow warm or cool air to come straight to the driver/pass upper area throw use of the blower motor.  67 only had the floor air vent in the kick panel and the defrost and floor vents for the use of the blower motor.  Vent windows were used as your upper body air source for 67.  67 a/c cars received the "astro vents" in the dash but that astro ventilation script wasnt added until 68.  Hopefully that makes sense.

Correct.  Vinyl top removed from 67 with less than 8k miles.

I understand the basis of the scenarios and hypothesis but for me personally do not want to post any of that at this point.  I would rather let the data speak.  I also realize that the spreadsheet above is "down and dirty" and will need to be expanded on in the future but I just wanted to get something down.
