Thanks for the input so far guys. With regards to it being a real Z, that doesn't come into play here. I'm running the 255hp combo, not a 302. I'm not claiming it as a Z. The car was purchased with a cowl hood when my Dad bought it, but the question is was a 255 in some how, some way, ever able to be combined with a cowl hood from the factory?
I understand the "timeline" of the LM1 being discontinued, so I realize in the "real world" it probably didn't happen. I just need to be able to argue that it could have happened. And again, it's not a big deal, it's just going to be an inconvenience.
So, not to be redundant, but as I understand it, one could only get a ZL2 option on a SS or Z/28, and it was included on a COPO and Pace Car, correct? Is there any way one could get it on a plain Camaro? And again, a 255hp/350 obviously wasn't offered in a Z/28 or COPO. But could you get a 255 in a SS model? Again, I don't think so. With that said, I'm not sure about a Pace Car.
Thanks again everyone. I wouldn't be all that concerned right this minute, but I'm getting both cars painted right now due to a new sponsor deal and I don't want two cowl hoods painted blue when I only need one, lol.
