This is a really nice ride. Very well done all around. But the cowl tag seems to be stamped weird. After the NOR the numbers have more space. Is this thing a repop?... Danny

I believe the tag is good. If I remember correctly there was a couple more trim tag that have been questioned in this late production run that had something in or around the NOR part messed up. I tried to find them but nothing turned up in search. They might be across the street at TC.  BTW nice car but I wonder what the other stamp is on the pad?

Great color combo. The tag looks good to me, though I am no expert. I don't want to pick on the car but the old thread claims the engine is original, but three months from engine assembly to going in a car is a stretch. The other stuff is easily fixed. The trunk latch should be body color, the rear stripes don't look correct, the grille should be silver,  the grille z-28 emblem is in the wrong spot, the valve covers are late model replacements. I wouldn't buy a high dollar car like this without having Jerry checking it out.

Tag is good, pad was blank before, now it's not. Wrong trans, wrong axle.
Hmm, wonder why they don't mention Jerry's appraisal of the car?

Kurt was it just my imagination or weren't there a couple Norwood tags that were stamped a little different in this time frame? I can't find them but I seem to remember others.

Hey Guys....I think there is some confusion here.  There was two different posters in the old thread, referenced by Mark, posting about their cars.  The first one, the one that started the thread, had a Cortez silver car.  That car had the original engine and had no engine pad stamp but had a stamp by the filter.  It also was a LOS car.  He also had the reference to Jerry.

The second poster, Samanatoo, is the one that had the Hugger orange car and that is the one for sale in this eBay ad.  This car is a NOR car. He was just trying to show what his VIN stamp looked like in the post.

The grilles  look so much better in the correct argent finish.

no confusion, Kurt is talking about the hugger orange car!

Kurt, if he was going to restamp the pad, why would he make it more than three months before the car was built. I believe my z is about two weeks from casting to assembly to being put in my car!

I've never understood why so many people spend all that money on restorations and not paint the grille. There seem to be more wrong than right.
