Originality / Re: Chrome trim options.

Ok, I looked over the chart.  Seems my car is a little further from "original" than I thought.  Thanks for the information.


Originality / Chrome trim options.
« on: April 28, 2014, 06:15:29 AM »
I was presented with a question about my 69 Z this weekend.  My car "currently" has chrome wheel opening moldings, chrome gills, but does not have chrome trim on the drip edge above the doors.  Am I missing a piece or would this be a possible configuration?  It's an x-77 car and does NOT have the RS option.  I don't have a build sheet so I'm just looking for everyone's opinion.  If it had one, would it have all of them, or could they be ordered individually?

Looks just like mine!

I have the original POP on my car that shows the original owner and selling dealership.  Will this information from NCRS provide anything that I don't already have?  The build sheet is what I'm after to see what options my car was born with.

The weather cleared up this week and I needed to get the VIN inspection completed on my Z, so I took it down the street a few blocks today.  I came back to the shop with a smile from ear to ear that you couldn't scrape off with a rusted putty knife. :D  I just can't get over how fast that 302 produces throw you back in the seat power!  I was one satisfied customer.  Thought I would try to post a couple pictures.

Well now hang on.  I just read that link a little closer and since my build date was late April, it might have been one of the first batches to be fitted with the side terminal.  I guess there is no exact day/month when the change occurred?

It's an April 69 build date and sold date of May on the PoP so I'm certain it should have top post.  One more project to add to my list to make this car closer to "original"!  Thanks everyone.

The black Z-28 at the Mecum auction was a "real" x33 car, but had been stripped of about everything else that made it a Z.  It would have been an ambitious project for someone.

Hello everyone.  My first post here and my first 69 Z-28 a week ago!  This forum has been a great collection of information for a first time owner.  I did some searching on the site and did not seem to find any information on the availability of the top post vs side post batteries on the 69 Z.  Mine has side post cables and a Delco replacement battery.  I don't think this would be the correct cables for the car, but thought I would ask here.
