Many people can't get it in the correct place on non-RS cars either, so no surprise the RS owners are confused without GM documentation.

Don't like the alt stamp.

One of my favorite colors, truly a stunning car.
Agree the tailpipes are at a wild angle though, and are those twin lines on the axle center consistent with original factory inspection marks?

Auction ended early "because there was an error in the listing". It only had 1 bid ($50) at the time, so presumably the owner accepted an offer and sold outside of ebay.

Great, thanks for confirming, and for that last photo. Definitely appears that the rocker was masked off by the VN workers before the black was applied, way to neat of a line between the two otherwise.

Oaklyss, in that last picture, is the horizontal area on the underside of the rocker bare metal? Can't tell, could be the flash effect, but it looks like there isn't even primer on there.

I think you are getting the flash along with the orange reflecting on the black giving it that bare metal look.  You can see the line where the black ends (or the bare metal looking area) and orange begins.
Yes but I asked the question because if you look at picture 1 in reply # 21, it looks similar, but without so much possible H.O. reflection.....

When I looked at the ad earlier today at work (before it got removed), the X33 tag looked genuine but the car had some confusing details. The asking price suggested a NOM engine, and in the pictures it at least had an earlier style intake (from the front oil fill tube). Also was a 711 interior on the trim tag, but had standard seats and deluxe door panels in the pictures. Could still be a good buy at that price, but needed much more detail.

Did you download the 67 Chassis Service and Overhaul Manuals from the link in reply #4 above?

You move fast Kevin - from "what's it worth?" to "sold" in a smidge over 24 hours!

Great photos, thanks Mike

Meant to add in above post, can a "branded" title (don't know what that is, being overseas) become a full clear title if the vehicle is rebuilt and passes inspection, or does it always remain on that type of title regardless?

Kevin,
Sad story for sure, I can only imagine how you must feel to see that beautiful car go up in flames.....
Now there are a couple of things I'd suggest:
1) if you get the software recommended earlier, please post some pictures of the car, damaged and undamaged areas so we can comment on what looks rescuable (is that a proper word?) and what probably isn't.
2) as for current value, the truth is likely to be that the parts are worth more individually than as a complete car. But a good ballpark place to start may be the valuation that your insurance company put on the wreck i.e. what you bought it back for. If they paid out the appraised or agreed value as a total loss, then they know what it was worth and would have tried to recoup as much of that as they could.
3) people are probably only asking after the car because nobody wants to see a previously-beautiful classic in a sorry state.
4) you obviously enjoyed the car, and while it may be unpleasant to look at it as it sits today, as a number-matching car, it deserves to be returned to it's previous condition (as you said). Have you thought about getting it professionally restored, more costly that you doing it, but you won't have to put yourself through tearing it all down and doing it again.
Hope this helps, and look forward to pictures!
