This car?

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.

Have used this product with success on other stuff.

Nice dash pod too. When was the last time you saw the column cover tabs still in place? Wink

Recently, I acquired a 69 parts car. It is rough for sure and the tag and VIN I suspect went on another car. By its hidden VIN it is a Jan.69 Nor. car 6cyl,glide w/D55,X23 blk.,X11. Olympic Gold?
Not much sheetmetal, but a largely untouched 45K car(don't know if orig. or turned over) A few of the small goodies netted include that seat cable, like sdkar had made, correct crossmember A headed shoulder bolts with washers, and correct camber shims. Posting for reference pics for others.

Just to clarify, my comment was not a "dig" on your car, and your reply was eloquent and did not indicate such. It is hard to describe what I would consider acceptable embellishments. A disclaimer-just my perception and opinion, so take it for what its worth. Such things as "period" or "era" stuff is perfectly fine to me (note other mods were not mentioned, like your chrome braces) or mud flaps in another post. Those are just things done "in the day". I would leave those items on a car, if I bought it...doesn't bother me. I was just thinking if I were considering a purchase and saw the car advertised as a real Z, upon seeing things in a pic, like the decal mentioned, I would question if the guy really had a Z or knew what was supposed to be on the car and a progression of thought, I may dismiss a car ad upon seeing items that an enthusiast would surely not have on a car, because there are plenty of bogus and mis-stated cars. Your own admission is that you removed the decal (after learning of its origin) showing you are an enthusiast  and of a high level. I have a hard time pricing cars these days myself as I have not personally inspected or compared any in years other than pics on the net. My advice about decal was based on getting the best price and most interest for your car, so, perhaps, others would not pass it up when they see a small detail that would make them question the legitimacy of the car. This would go for any car.
Conclusion: If an ad started "Real Z for sale", I click on pics and see that decal, I'm thinking, yea, right, probably not a real Z or that guy would know better to have that decal...I guess that is the point. I will also say, I will be so fortunate if my own car comes out half as nice as yours when it is completed. Bentley

Plus column far exceeds negatives. Beautiful , straight car. Appears a nicely done clone with a few personal touches , but it's not. It's the real deal with the 302 sitting on a stand. And from what you say, not a bunch of after market sheet metal built around a vin tag.

I like your car quite a bit, but I'm a little partial to 68 Z's lol.

The cost of getting one to that level in primer alone?? From some of these barn finds?

If you are on the fence, set the bar high. It's the person who doesn't have one in the garage that may come off the long dollar.

Very nice car, I agree! I'd get rid of that "caution fan" sticker though. Looks cheesy and speaks,"I don't don't know what the H--l I'm doing when restoring a Camaro."

Austin,did Jim Nabors sing "Back Home in Indiana" for you? Welcome back to the Midwest. Nice shop pic.

I am already watching that one. It is intriguing to see what a complete project will bring

I'm watching this one just to see what folks are smok'n!!?
147  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: vin removal on: June 19, 2014, 03:20:00 PM
About those VIN rivets, it has been on my mind too. My dash is rusted out at the windshield clear up to the lh defrost duct hole (&@#& Ohio rust!)  Angry ,how and what will happen to the tag if dash is replaced? I apologize if this a little off topic, not wanting to hi-jack post. Embarrassed

I've seen several low horse 69 Big Blocks without clutch fan, hence the 4 blade standard fan. Just to affirm the fact.
149  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Fake or real DZ stamp and partial Vin ? on: June 17, 2014, 11:39:58 AM
Are there shops using surfacing machines that leave this pattern or was it done by hand?

A friend of mine who does the swap meet thing weekly has many contacts and introduced a few to me while at a swap last year. In our conversation, restamping came up. These guys were telling me they can get anything done for a Camaro. They told me of a place in Ky. that will stamp block and has the exact broaching machine to resurface block. While I was surprised to learn this, at the same time, I was not surprised. I guess I have heard it all. Although I have no interest in this type service, I am aware now, that even the broaching can be replicated.

It looks like this new seller knows what he is doing. The way he has gotten the car out in the open, more showable, pictures and a much better description, He might make a little money.
If you note his feedback . Angry Angry Angry
