"might be cool, this thread for guys looking, another thread for items found."

Good idea Bullitt, I vote since you started this thread that you start the new one. Smiley

Here is the license plate frame that I found on ebay for my 66 Ca. Chevelle. I also have the original black Ca. plates so was very excited to find this. I missed a Gustafson hat by a hair right before I found this.
I also am in contact with the dealer that sold my 69 Z and hopeful they might come up with some original paper work and or memorabilia.
I enjoy the hunt!

Even though I am very appreciative of what Roy and the NCRS are doing, it would have been cool if this could have been done a few short years ago before the big GM bankruptcy and forced dealership closings. There might have been a better chance of some old paperwork still being available. I'm sure now that the NCRS information is out that a lot of the dealers that are either still in business or have changed ownership will be getting a lot of calls. Some of them will be polite and helpful but most will not be very friendly and feel like their time is being wasted.
When I purchased my 66 SS Chevelle with the POP many years ago I researched the dealership and called them. They informed me that it had changed ownership a few years earlier and they had no information to offer and were not very helpful. They made me feel like I was bothering them. I guess in reality I was Smiley

My 66 Chevelle dealership (Gustafson Chevrolet, Eureka Ca.) and was in business from 1964 to 2000.
My 69 Z was purchased new from Wilkins Chevrolet in Norfolk Va. They are now called Bay Chevrolet but are still owned by the same family.

I got very lucky last year. I punched in a search on Ebay for the dealership name where my 66 Chevelle SS original black plate CA car was purchased from new, and low and behold an excellent condition, original old dealership license plate frame came up. I grabbed it. I still check from time to time on Ebay for that dealer and for my 07A X77 car dealership in case something new pops up.

I've dealt with him a couple of times and have even talked with him on the phone. He always seems very knowledgeable and honest and has a lot of hard to find NOS and original parts that are always very pricey. From my dealings with him I am very surprised that he sold a repop part  and called it a "original GM part" for that crazy money. Just goes to show one has to be very careful and do lots of homework on any parts with any seller.

Same here. If I'm not mistaken that is Chicago Corvette. Graygracy is just their Ebay site. I've always had good luck with them and they seem to know there stuff.
112  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 04, 2014, 07:31:02 AM
Yeah, I just noticed that and was going to post it as well.
It doesn't affect me but I feel bad for those that it will affect.
That will pretty much exclude all of the pre X coded cars  Sad

Wow, what a lesson someone learned the hard way or maybe not and they still believe to this day they scored.
Again, very impressive detective work Paul!!

One reason I posted this car is because it is a very rare and beautiful car that caught my eye. The other reason I posted it is because it is up for sale on an open public site for a lot of money. I truly feel that this site is the most fair and informative Camaro site anywhere period!! As much as i would love to own a car like this (and i have owned a Z/11 in years past) I am not in the market at this time. The problem is in today's classic car world there are so many fake, restamps and clones that have helped to ruin and hurt the value of our beloved hobby. That keeps experts on here and other sites constantly keeping data and records so that when these cars come and go for sale over the years we have some help to look back on in case one of us are in the market. Since I have been on this site I have been shocked to see so much dishonesty and forgery with these classic Camaro's.
Now with that said I am in NO WAY saying that I believe this beautiful rare car falls into that category. To me the only things that looked worth questioning is the clear, crisp VIN stamp on the block that are usually very hard to read. Also, unless it was a factory mistamp shouldn't the VIN stamp have been 19N6xxxxx and not 11N? Factory misstamp??  James brings up a good point, a simple check of the trans stamp could help to answer that. Also, the very, very early casting dates on the block, exhaust manifolds, 3:55 posi rear etc. raised a question in my mind. Even though they seem way to early I guess anything is possible.
I am in no way questioning you or the current owner but from 1969 to 2006 is a long time and we definitely know the engine was out and things were done through those years. Again a clear shot of the transmission VIN could clear that up easily as they should match the block exactly. All the best to your friend with his sale and hopefully our discussion on here will help to validate this rare and beautiful car and help him to sell for it for top money. That is my hope!

I like it!
117  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 69 Z/11 L78 Pace Car "Unrestored survivor" on: April 27, 2014, 04:43:50 PM
Is that a 11N638372 VIN stamp on the block??  "born with drive-train including L78 396 375hp engine"
"Unrestored - Survivor 1969 L78 396 375hp Z11 Pace Car. Numbers matching and documented with original dealer order invoice, complete owner history and correspondence with the original owner".
Also several parts have very early dates for an 05A car.  January dated exhaust manifolds, posi rear etc..??

I agree, I would love to have it if the interior were black or black houndstooth. Does seem a little pricey though.
