50 Z/28's For Sale ???
« on: December 26, 2012, 10:47:03 PM »
I had e-mailed American Dream Machines about this car ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=121042771446&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:MOTORS:1123 ) They have for sale. I wanted to see a pic of the trim tag. Here was his response.


Thank you for your interest in our cars at American Dream Machines.  I think that one may be sold.  It is a x33 car and we are happy to send pictures if it is not sold this week.  We have 50 other Z-28s.
Please give us a call at the shop and our restoration staff and I will be happy to answer your questions regarding the car.
More pictures and detailed information can be viewed on our website at www.admcars.com

Thank You,


Doug Klein





50 other Z/28's  ???  Come on !    I wonder out of that 50 how many are the real deal.  :-\

Yep.......these dealers are the worst. I'd say they are the ones responsible for 90% of the fake Z's.

Shame they don't include a trim tag pic or engine/trans stamping details. Good way to get around the "numbers matching" statements. Must be quite a collection to have 50 Z's in one spot.

It says it has an August dated 010 block in it. Numbers matching? The 010 block didn't come out till April 69.

Couldn't that have been a August 69 built engine?

Not according to the VIN he put in the ad. It's an early built car with a 50 start in VIN.

Good catch Daniel! Never even looked at the vin or car that much to begin with (should have). For me, if the seller does not disclose important info/pics of the trim tag, etc. the ol' red flag goes us since so much of the time its being done for a reason.

Doug, maybe you should call and ask if any of the 50 have the original engine?????

Well I did get a picture of the trim tag. It's obviously a repop.

I wonder if it would bust his bubble if I told him about it? Do y'all think I need to?

I'd be willing to bet that he already knows.

This dealer has been around for a while, I think they sell on consignment. I remember they had a Dusk Blue '69 Z for sale on their website site. I contacted them and spoke to someone who seemed somewhat knowledgeable but the car had been sold. He told me they have access to all kinds of private collections and could get what I need. I guess after reading the above posts they can also apparently build me anything I need....
