Well, the original intent of the Camaro Research Group WASN'T to be the "Camaro police", but after so many years and so many cars, it's hard to stay on the sidelines when this kind of issue comes up. It's unfortunate, but more and more cars are being represented as something they never left the factory as, and as I indicated above, with the advent of the internet, it's making faking these cars more and more difficult. And yet they keep trying!!!

As I always tell potential buyers, before laying down your hard earned cash, contact us and see if we have a history on the car. Also post as many high resolution pictures of the trim tag, engine pad, transmission, axle, docs, etc... as possible. While fakes are good, Kurt is better!


This is another example of the incredible value this site and its impressive posters provide to anyone looking to collect a real Camaro - whatever the options.

While it is unfortunate if vinnie2010john didn't know what he bought (or thought he bought) at least it should end here for 428847 being sold as a real Z.

So is my Z the only one on the planet with a std black steering wheel?  ;D

I have the second :)

Didn't 69 production run into november of 69, and isn't that a late vin number?

Norwood VIN 522xxx is Oct 1968

Likewise with mine - can only make out X3563X. The casting is very rough.

The striping detail (or lack there of) in the trunk and engine compartment is unbelievable - really shows how restored cars are way too perfect in these areas...

Awesome information paceme.

Thanks for posting this car Kurt. A very nice unrestored car with few options X77 car. Looks like a valve cover swap by the original owner. 32k miles after 40 years, that just amazes me. I am sitting on 47k miles up till 2007, and it is impressive to me the fore sight by these original owners to preserve their cars from the beginning. The no spoiler/ flat hood is almost a give away for a special car now a days... :)

Couldn't agree more - it is nice to see a non-spoiler flat hood 69 Z28. Especially a true 32k mile survivor! Very nice.

Another sport steering wheel. I must have the only Z/28 in existence with the standard wheel, lol  ;D

That makes 2 of us. I'll be using the original standard wheel on my Z, albeit with the rosewood insert....!   I'm always amazed as well how seldom you see an original standard steering wheel.   

Three of us:)

AGAIN its not impossible to stamp in that location as this one is...  However the one in question is a restamp.




Not to beat a dead horse - but wouldn't the plug on the head prevent the gang stamp from being perpendicular to the pad? Is the photo angle giving this illusion? Not doubting you guys - I just want to understand😀

Never mind - I got's not the vin#....☺️
