That was the non RS car. Had replaced block . Had great letter from early owner complaining to gm that a rod bolt came loose and damaged the block. He had asked for a new throw out bearing when the motor was out and dealer forgot/didn't do it. Was upset it cost him $35 to get it fixed!

Hmmm..bad eyes on my part. Didnt realize there were not 1 but 2 67 Z28s in the auction. I see the one your talking about is actually going today. I'm heading to Indy today and going to stop by the auction tomorrow and catch the tail end of it. Hope I get a chance to see these cars before they leave.

Saw this ad as well. Anxious to see the photos of the stamps seller says he will be posting. Are there documented cases, as the seller claims, where the transmission and engine vin stamps dont match?

That Jetfiire is so cool. I saw you at the show in Valley Center this weekend. I tried twice to introduce myself but couldn't seem to make it through the crowd that was always around the car. Sure is a conversation piece.

Heck I'll take it...Hang it in the garage as a reminder that someday I need to paint my stripes black and put the vinyl top back on so my car will match the cowl tag Smiley

You are correct X55 is an SS350 without style trim

Car has been sold twice at Barratt Jackson here:
and here:

Both times its was described as having a “correct” block. Now according to the ebay ad its numbers matching. Buyer beware.
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another 1969 Z/28 "Barn Find" on: April 08, 2014, 11:56:00 AM
I need to correct my earlier post. When I first read the report  I thought it said the the interior and exterior colors do not match the trim tag. What it actually says is “The exterior and interior colors do match the trim tag on the firewall”. Having said that it doesnt make me feel any better about the report because thats not the wording that I've seen in known authentic reports. The ones I have that I know are authentic are phrased “The exterior and interior colors are original and correct for this vehicle and match the trim identification tag on firewall.” Not exactly a smoking gun but certainly a red flag
Also, revisting the report I did notice something else that would case me to question its authenticity. According to the ad the car was driven into the barn in 1977 and now has a  “non descript” small block in it. Jerrys report notes a 302 with a 618 casting. Are we to believe that the “non descript” small block made its way into the car sometime after 2007 when the report was done? Again the wording on the report is not consistent with others I've seen. If there was a 302 present either in or out of the car at the time of inspection guaranteed that Jerry M would have made note of the casting and assembly dates. The engine description would read something more like Engine:  V1113DZ assembly date, “386” block casting, casting date K68, original 302 engine   
is it unethical of me to ask everyones opinion on what you think this car is worth?   I realize the factor of "how bad somebody, really wants the car" determines it.    Just trying to get an idea and compare it to other "barn finds"
Bidding is over 20k and the reserve is not met. IMO even 20k is too much for what I believe is  a possible X77 car with non original drivetrain in need of complete restoration Add 30k (or more) for a proper restoration and your in 50k and have a car that might be worth 40k or even less. I bought my car which is a rotisserie restored X77 with a date code correct but not matching  302 for 30K. I cant see this car being worth more than 10K..maybe a bit more if the shiny new engine without a vin could be autheticated as a real DZ.

Somethings fishy here ... .Jerrys report also says that the interior and exterior colors do not match the trim tag..The trim tag pictured says its  Cortez Silver with a black standard interior which is what the car in the photos is. To many inconsistencies on the report to be typos, imo

More concerning to me - how many Norwood Camaros after January had the VIN stamped on the deck ? New guy on the line, maybe didn't realize that it was a hassle to remove the alternator to stamp the VIN ?

Not only should the vin not be stamped on the pad the V0421DZ date is weeks early for an 05D build should be more like the second week of May = restamp (or more accurately added stamp). Be interesting to see what the area around the oil filter looks like

Butternut w/ a vinyl top is such a great combo. I'm going to follow this thread see how it turns out. Wish I had some advice to give but I'm it the same boat, I want to put the vinyl top back on my 69 but havent worked up t nerve to try it myself.
