Looks like maybe Van Nuys had a little problem with the TT rivet and build date on more than just this car. Here is another one.
VIN 124379L516579

I am not sure about that. Does he have paperwork with the car, that would show it had a clock delete?
I think Austin is correct. No center clock meant no gauges originally. Those additions would have me checking deeper before buying. Not saying its a bad thing or bad addition I would just want to know what else was added or changed.

Norwood started stamping the engine VIN down near the oil filter in the early 1969 calendar year. Van Nuys  was more inconsistant and stampings have been found on both places thru April of 69. So yes it could have been stamped down by the oil filter like Norwood if its a 02B. According to Jerry some early production Van Nuys engines have been found down by the filter as well

I think so because I have a LOT of original May dated parts still on my car. I figure they were winding down and using up everything laying around knowing the shut down was coming. Trying to get rid of parts inventory.
According to William there were no cars manufactured at Norwood after July 11th until August 11th.
I will also ad that it would be surprising if they used up "everything" before the shut down so therefore I would assume that there were still parts around to be used up on the early August cars when production resumed on August 11th but that is only a guess.

Hope this helps.
Here is my 07A X77 rear stamping and casting date photos. With the Norwood factory shutting down July 11th and not starting up again until August 11th I think my car would have been one of the last Z's built before the shutdown. My NCRS production date was July 10th.

VIN 9N6687XX
BU 0630 G2
E 26 9 casting date
#860NF

Sold for $12K  If he paid the $9500. that the first seller wanted plus expenses he couldn't have made more than a grand or two profit if that.

Thank you for the input Paul, my friend has decided to pass on this one.

Eddie, whether I try to go completely factory correct or not with the overspray etc, your car is amazing. But I will admit I am one of those biased HO guys Smiley Would love to see more detailed pictures of your car. I can only hope mine someday comes out half as nice as yours from what I see in Gary's pictures.
Would have loved to attended this Carlisle event!

A friend of mine needs a correct 480 distributor for his car and is looking at buying this one. I say a restamp. The area around the critical numbers look filed. I hate to see him get taken. What do you guys think?
Thanks!

Makes sense. Thanks!

Thanks for the pictures Gary!  Man that HO car caught my eye. Absolutely beautiful. I do have a question though and I'm not picking just trying to learn. I notice that on Eddie's car and the green Yenko that they decided to go with a more taped paint line on the top of the cowl instead of the overspray look that you see so often. Again not picking just trying to learn for when the day comes and I start the restoration and I TRY to make my car as nice as Eddie's. I was looking back on the "1969 Z28 Cowl" thread that was posted just a few weeks ago and especially at the pictures that Kurt posted. You can see the body color paint overspray coming down over the black cowl and if I am seeing it right it even oversprays the TT some. I have always heard that is the way they were painted from the factory but after seeing these amazing pictures I was just wondering if some were taped off?? Maybe it has been discussed here before so I will also do some research.
Again, great job Eddie! Same color combo as my X77 car minus the RS and Crossram  Smiley
