I believe this to be real

I disagree. 

Original photo in 1st post is potentially good but still want a better pic.

Alternator - yes restamp.

Distributor - need a bigger/better pic.  It’s questionable.

Of course these are just my opinions.

Originality / Re: E-Brake Cables, With or Without the Rubber Boot?

That's the intermediate cable that rubs the floor Chick.  Pretty sure he is talking about the e-brake cable that exits the backing plate to the bracket that's welded to the frame and then attaches to the intermediate cable by the way of the cable connectors.  I have some cables that were Chevelle & as Warren mentioned and they had the rubber isolator around the cable.  I would double check the length against your originals but I was thinking they are the same length and the intermediate was longer on the Chevelles..??.  Please confirm as I have slept since then.

Original owner is still around and owned it up until a month or so ago.  The car wasn’t for sale except when he was ready.

I agree with Ed.  I have several cars around this date and nothing lines up.  I have issues with everything stamped.


Hi everyone, that car is not real ! First the car has ARP head bolts. The valve covers are completely wrong for the car. Just look at the drivers side cover as it is hitting the wiper motor. I own a true L78  car and the stand for the wire holder is forward more and is a completely different shape. There are no engine life brackets on the motor. The numbers on the stamp are completely wrong.If that was a real car that would be a cheap price. If you look at how the alternator is mounted on the top bolt is wrong too. The bracket should be behind the top bolt. Way to many things wrong !

Since you have a L78 would you care to send me the info so I can add it to my list?

Quote from: ebay seller
On Jun-21-18 at 03:50:26 PDT, seller added the following information:

I have been asked 50 questions about this car by every Z28 Fanatic and self proclaimed expert particularly regarding the partial vin number on the block that's in the car.

Here's what I can tell you. L code cars are very hard to track and verify especially ones that were built in Van Nuys. This car vin L529083 and this engine L530071 were both built in the second week of April 1969 and both were at the Van Nuys plant at the same time. There is no documentation to locate a Z28 with a vin number that matches the L530071 that is stamped on the block that is in this car. I was told and also believe that during this period of time engines were installed in cars with mismatched vin's due to availability of engines. It's hard to imagine that someone changed the motor in this car and was able to find a block that was produced the same week of April in 1969 that this car was built. There is plenty of information out there that raises this question. The person that I got the car from spent many hours and weeks researching this over the 17 years he owned the car and has never been able to find any documentation to dispute this. As you can imagine every Z28 fanatic/expert on ebay has brought this mismatched vin to my attention however none of them can validate the non-legitimacy or the possibility of L530071 engine being installed in car 529083 both the same week of April 1969. As far as restoration, as described in the ad it has had one re-paint which is an excellent paint job in the original color of Rally Green. As far as other restorations to my knowledge there has not been any. 
Documentation: I have what's left of the original tank sticker  (Broadcast Sheet) see picture added. It is pretty beat up but was located on top of the fuel tank and is traceable to this car. 
I highly suggest if anyone remains interested you come and have a look at the car in person. I have a lift in my garage and we can go over the car and each part one by one with a code guide to validate the  Authenticity of the car. I hope this answers all the questions that continue to be asked. Thank you to all the experts that continue to send me messages.
