Before you pay someone to inspect the car, see if you can find a person who knows these cars that will give it a preliminary look. Then fork over cash to someone else if you choose. There are people in this hobby who have owned, built and scrapped countless of them over the decades.

Do you know of anyone in FL?

Trans tag and rear axle

I went to see the car today and the numbers check out. I could not see the VIN on the trans because it was too tight to get where I could see it but it had the orginal yellow tag for TH400s. From the looks on the underside of the car it has not been removed. The engine is orginial and the hidden vin on the stamp pad confirm it. I was also able to locate the hidden vin in the cowl area and the rear axle information.

Hidden Cowl VIN 9N547348

Engine stamp pad T082IJI with VIN 19N547348. I know the photo is fuzzy, but I posted it to show that it has not been tampered with and I saw in person the whole number matching the VIN.

The yellow trans tag shows CE (which is correct for an L34 engine) 69 316 then below on the same tag CE-69-2442

The rear axle code shows BI 1115G1 2.73 ratio 12 bolt non posi. So I am confident that it is authentic. I know the photos are fuzzy but I posted it just to show that it has not been tampered with.

Thanks Marty. I have been reading through all of the CRG research pages the last couple of days.

The car is for sale by a dealer/consignor so I am hoping that they will have a lift and have it up for me to inspect. I will take a flash light and some rags with me. Also I am looking for the VIN to be stamped on the engine, trans, and rear axle to indicate a numbers matching car correct? This is a Norwood car, but it is about two weeks before the x codes were used and there is no paper work. So my understanding to KNOW that it is a real SS is for the numbers to match with the BBC in it. The drivetrain numbers matching the VIN is my only real concern at this time and the general condition of the car instead of just looking at pictures so far.

Assuming it is correct until I can go see it in person the next couple of days and verify, what is your opinion of the general condition of the car, would you buy it, and a general range of values you would expect to pay for this car. Since I have never owned one of the cars before, please comment or give your opinion. Any help you give is much appreciated.

Thanks. I have downloaded and saved the link.

Know where I can find one that has not been copied for the hundredth time?
232  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Help and advice prior to purchase? on: December 24, 2011, 03:27:40 PM
Exactly.  It is about an hour and a half from me. They are closed for the holiday so I am hoping to get there Monday or Tuesday. Thanks for the help.

Thanks, I like it too, but the seller has made some claims that I am not sure about that I would like to have verified before paying for a car that is priced for what it is claimed to be and not what it is. Not sure if that is true yet or not. Even if it is not I am still interested because of the color combination and how well it is presented but the price would be Significantlyless.

The VIN and Cowl tag are attached to evaluate. I have also downloaded some additioanl photos of the car from the ad listing. Please tell me what you experts think.  I already know that the A/C is aftermarket and that the bottom of the hockey stripe is a little too long indicating a resortation or repaint, and the added arm rest over the console. Other than that I am not sure, but I would like to know both what the car is and is not before I decide to purchase it. Either way it is a really nice car that I would not mind owning.

Thanks I have a photo of the VIN tag and Cowl tag. I just need to verify the drivetrain castings, numbers and options. I am planning to go see it sometime this coming week when I have time.

Thanks that is the exact person I was thinking of. I just was not sure if he offered that type of service. I will give him a call.
