General Discussion / Ebay 69Z beware
« on: July 09, 2017, 02:58:29 PM »
When I first looked at the photos in the eBay ad I was skeptical. Then I read about it over on

VIN: 124379N703347

Would love to see pictures and more info/history of your 69Z if you can. Very partial to that color combo myself. I have a 1966 Chevelle SS that I am restoring at this time with that factory color combo.

It very well could be a real Z/28. Its the fact that the engine was acknowledged in 2012 as having been "re-stamped" but is now being advertised as "Real deal, original engine" and absolutely no mention at all of the decking and re-stamping in the current ad that bothers me. Maybe the current owner honestly doesn't know and thinks it is as described. Maybe he got screwed... Its just another perfect example of how these re-stamps show up months or years later as legit.
With this engine being decked and restamped there is no way anyone will ever know if that is the "Real deal, original engine" or not.
And the asking price is almost double of the 2012 price. If someone doesn't do there due diligence and search the VIN, they will get stung!

Actually about 7/8" of thread, total bolt length is right at 1 1/8"

Austin, are these the bolts you are referring to? Although I can't be 100% positive that they are the original factory correct bolts I feel pretty confident that they are. I removed my water pump and fan clutch because they had been replaced many years ago but the deep grove pulley and 772 fan were still there. I just soaked these in evaporust for a couple of days. Hope this helps.

A similar thread is running over on TC too. One member has reported it to ebay.

Great job, Ed!!

Yep, I just looked and you are right, Austin. For some reason I missed that thread.
I just remember being shocked when I saw it bring that huge money at BJ back in 2014, especially for it being a non original drivetrain car. With the sell price at $143,000. plus buyers fees the new owner must have over $150,000. in it.  :o

General Discussion / BJ 69Z now on ebay

When I saw this car on ebay today I thought it looked familiar. I was at BJ in January 2014 and looked this car over and watched it go across the block. An extensive and expensive restoration but it looks like its turned out to be a bad investment. It sold for $143,000. then. The current seller wants $129,995. or offer.
I remember my buddy that was with me got into a discussion with the seller. He told him that where the rear tail panel meets the quarter panels should not have been filled in. The seller argued that my buddy didn't know what he was talking about. I also noticed that its another one with gauges but no center clock and wrong tail lights.

A beautiful car though!
