I did check behind the seat but I don't see any crayon marks, but if they weren't putting the x code on the cowl tag yet would they write it behind the seat?
Yes, Jerry M. found it on my brothers early pre X coded Z when he had it inspected a couple years ago. Put a very bright light on and maybe a use little soapy wet rag to lightly clean the area. If that area has never been blasted, repainted or replaced it could be there. I watched Jerry do it. You have to look very hard on his car to see it but it is there.

Edit: Bryon could be right, I think my brothers car is a Oct. build if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the kind words. The Yenko ad explains the lack of pics of the stamps and cowl tag but buyers are welcome to come and inspect the car in person.
262jp, all the best and good luck with your Z! I love the Cortez Silver cars! Great color combo!

Cool pictures and story Darrell.
I agree there are many more of these types of "collections" out there. I have traveled an area over in Northwest Arkansas near Table Rock Lake several times over the past few years. I can't think of the little two lane highway number at this time. There is a car hoarder along that highway with first gen Camaro's, 55,6 and 7 Chevys and who knows what else just sitting all over his property. Lots of trees so its hard to see exactly what all is there. I have friends that live in the area and they say the cars have been sitting on his property for many years and that many people have stopped by only to be run off. I heard the old gentleman recently passed away but his wife still won't let anything go. I can only imagine what all is there but of course by now most are probably pretty rusty.

 816 area code is Kansas City Mo. There is a two hour time difference between KC and CA

"This car was built the first week of January and the motor was built the 3rd week."

That raises a flag / question. It should be the other way around. The engine cast and assembly date should be before the car build date, not after.

Got any pictures of that engine pad stamp?

Being an LA car, pictures of your engine pad stamp and as Paul mentioned, pictures of your documents are the best way to verify it as an original Z.
You can compare your VIN to trim tag build date here.

You can also learn how to verify you hidden VIN as well as decode your trim tag interior and exterior colors here.

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What starting letter should my Plates have? on: February 25, 2015, 12:01:29 AM
I'm a little confused as to how they were issued. My 66 California Chevelle SS was a three owner car. I have the black plates along with the POP still with the car. They are also confirmed by old CA DMV records that I have and they start with BXP.

Danny, after a search over on TC, here is an interesting CA black plate discussion.

Hey Kurt,

Thanks for the feedback, this is disappointing for sure. I am new to this subject so forgive me for asking but are you 100% certain? Could the picture be deceiving? The PO has two independent appraisals that state this car is real... They could be full of it, just trying to cover my bases here. Also what is memorex, is that a method of restamping? I did a search but only came up with threads like "Is it real or memorex"

So now assuming you are correct how can I even tell what this motor is? It drives like a real 302 but I would hate to push it to 7K RPM and blow it because it's not a DZ... Is there any way to tell without disassembling it? My hope is that the VIN and Assembly stamp are fake and that this is a real DZ motor that was just restamped to fit this car.

Based on the condition of the car and the options I still think I got a great deal I just want to be sure what it is that I actually have.

thanks




Jeremy, watch this and you will understand Kurt's term "Memorex"

Your trim tag pic is to a different car.

Be careful of this dealer. Here is another one they have for sale that has already been discussed.

He doesn't show any pictures of other crucial areas such as engine, trans and rear stampings. Looks like the car has been through the auctions a few times.
