I recall from when I purchased my 69 Z28/RS in 1976, the emblem location 'didn't look right' to me, and I moved it..  I was basing that decision on the location of the emblem on my '68 Z28 (non RS) car I'd traded for the '69.. but I had no doc/manual to go by..   it was purely by 'look' to me, but I'd been around original Z28's since 1968, but not many RS models.

I *think* the various locations of the Z28 emblem on an RS grill comes from the fact that the RS grill 'seems more narrow' than the std grill to the eye, and maybe the 'black color' of it?, and the factory assembly manual instructions shows the 'std' grill, and doesn't address the RS grill location...


FYI 68's didnt have Z emblems in the grill. Tongue

you're right DW.. Smiley   I typed too fast and had a brain fart.. Smiley   

To clarify... " I was basing my conclusion that my RS Z28 grill emblem placement as being 'wrong' on being around MANY non-RS 69 Z28's in the past... Smiley   "

Just giving you a hard time..   Grin

There's a good thread on this but I can't find the link I thought I saved. I think this is Gary's car. Mine was similar. Had grey in tunnel and foot board areas. I believe black was over the grey. I used sikkens rally black over ppg epoxy primer on my car. Sikkens is pricey but excellent product.

I believe that is George's car (NoYenko).

Post a pic of the code off the rearend & of the trim tag too.  Doesn't look like there is a plate there unless there is serious undercoating on it.  Id get out the scrapper.

welcome Newb geb78. You say the engine is original? HAcode? How could it be anything but an SS? Of course, the first thing that will be asked on this site (so, I will go ahead and ask) is to provide pictures of the Trim Tag and engine stamps/castings/dates/all partial VINs. Hopefully, you have studied all the related information on the site already and can conclude on your own what you have since there is so much information that is presented so well by our site administrators and founders with more detail  topics(and sarcasm/humor) provided by our knowledgable members, here, in the forum. Agree, your pic is hard to determine the "plate". It looks more to be an outline of where a rear ex. hanger was located, but the holes are way too big, so more pics needed, maybe cleaning off that area.


Beat me to it..

I remember the car.
Block is a restamp.

And it looks it too!!!

Don't like the alt stamp.

Alt is a restamp IMHO.

I got this in the mail today.  From the Capitol chevrolet in Austin TX.  It used to have studs on the back but were broken off & adhesive applied.  This is just another piece to the puzzle on the 68.  Very happy

Too bad its not Hugger Orange..    Roll Eyes


That poor car needs to be led out back and shot.  Or maybe all the previous owners...

It uses crushed glass and I think a rust inhibitor.  I want to buy one but I dont think the little lady would like me quitting my day job. Tongue
