I think hes refering to the small brackets on the frame that hold the hoses and the hard lines go into the rubber lines.

This is my disclaimer:

I am by no means an expert and only go on what experiences I gain and the data I read.  This is certianly a very strange vehicle and I would venture to say it would be wise to have an expert come to look at this car and certify or verify it if you are wanting to represent the vehicle correctly..  Obviously paperwork is always the best data backer but that too can be faked..

Words from just an average Tennessee redneck.   Grin

Maybe I read too much into his article, but I always assumed that included rally wheels.  If they shipped them efficiently crammed into rail cars and also final-painted, they would likely be scratched up by time they got onto a car.   

You are probably correct just wanted to make sure on the rallys since they would have been a lower in production..

John Z's article is always a go-to source for info.  If not the entire article, read Paint Shop Operations, to include how wheels were shipped in rail cars.

I have read the assembly process before.  My comment was for rally wheels..  I guess I didnt make that clear..

I suspect the X55 tag could be real. X77 isn't.

Could an X55 have had that M21 trans? Thought that was a solid lifter and 396/350hp only?


I was waiting for someone to spot that!!! Wink

Bulkhead reads "X5" or "X7" - can't tell. Deck stamp looks decent, but the whole thing gets worse all the time. Trans stamp looks decent. I'd bet the X55 stamp was original, then changed to an X77 at some point - you think ?

Like any other car - if all the documentation you have is a cowl tag, you'd best look real close - at everything.

Regards,
Steve

It almost looks as if it was X5 and someone changed the 5 to a 7..  Would need a much better pic to be able to tell.

You are probably right but for some reason it doesnt look right to me... Huh  I guess that is why I will never consider myself an expert..   Grin
731  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Z28 sold at auction last weekend? on: October 30, 2013, 08:29:02 AM
All the classic car price guides that I have seen always show 67 Z's worth Much more than 68 or 69.

I am certainly no expert.  I am just one man giving his opinioin from his experiences.
