Wonderful patina on the tractors

Who originally restored the Blue 69 on Ebay ? Car looks familiar via the net. Graffiti and all (I like that)   Pretty car.

There is a 67 ( I think 67) Chevelle that runs in that U.M.T.R group around here ,something bad ##$ seeing a soft color like Butternut on a car coming off the line hanging the front wheels a few feet off the ground. Beautiful car and stock appearing---every bit a show car.

302 that can be verified by builder....after purchase. No VIN. Shiny engine on stand.

Jerry M certified !, of course a typo on the report which is blamed on him.

Dubious trim tag rivets...covered ?

I really don't care ,but something about this one tics me off. Look what a nice clean Camaro is going for and subtract the cost $$$$ of getting this one done.

Looks like nobody is really biting on it.

The data's available ,got to be willing to crawl through the car on your own to verify. Or pay  someone to do it for you. (if you don't like getting dirty)

 I had some items done at CHP and was very pleased with the results. He comes across as a standup guy.

PLUS, who is to say changes are not made after the report....I've posted before, probably your safest bet if paying high dollar for a supposed classic is inquire about getting the car inspected NOW and splitting the cost----if mine was on the chopping block ,I'd accept that. Price is reasonable for piece of mind. Of course I would have nothing to hide.

A few years back I went to look at a drag car ( 68 Camaro) out of state--looked great in the pics plus he had video of the car making passes. Well the car looked and sounded tired to say the least when we got there. I got a hot head and was instantly , um, mad. ( I was with trailer and cash for this pos.) Got talked into watching the tapes by my family. Some reason this guy's feelings were hurt by my reaction in the garage. So...current video was of some hard launces at the track, told him if it was a horse I'd have it shot and walked out. (and somehow my wife stays with me LOL! )

Like I've said ,cannot imagine buying without personally inspecting the car. And researching claims. I'm curious how this plays out.



Mind you the price of that car was peanuts compared to what a numbers Z goes for

Simple enough ,if one was interested in the car ,call CHP--I am sure Jerry keeps a data base to cover fraudulent claims.

I can see were this would be a headache.

Once again ,buyer beware. I really can never wrap my brain around making a high dollar purchase sight unseen , and this is why. If you have ever been involved in litigation concerning this hobby ( I have ,body work, car was hostage in the shop) it's a nightmare and usually the only winners are the attorneys. Very subjective on values. Food for thought.

So... Fees and expenses were paid to have 2 cars documented, and the owner did not catch a  " typo " ?

Nice shot next to the soybean's and the barns off in the distance, overcast weather...Ohio.

" Long may you run "......Neil Young ,sorta sums it up Smiley     Probably all guys attached to their old iron get a little choked up, if you've owned them for decades ,they become time stamps.

Can verify the 302, with the guy who rebuilt it ,by phone ,after moneys out of your account.....sounds ok to me.


I'm curious for CHP input on this car. Documents can so easily be forged. It may very well be legit ,but all scammers "troll" for fish to snag ,and usually do....hear reports every few days on the news.

And even if it isn't a scam ,cleverly written disclaimers and descriptions have replaced fast talking.

I agree with above--if your keeping stock appearing( heads date coded ??) See what they are flowing, if they need work . Than email a reputable camshaft company with the info and they can recommend a package. Don't overlook the strength in the rotating assembly. Food for thought ,but 496 assemblies seem to be pretty popular if you need to strengthen and go  the route of upgrading. Number one rule is keep everything a package. No weak links. Do your homework and research what you have. Many good websites identifying cast numbers. try: outintheshop.com
