I don't think Norwood would let it go without the smog equipment would they?

In 1969, ALL small block engines with manual transmissions came with smog.

Lot's of misinformation in that ad.

That's what I thought. Why was it that the manual trans got smog and the automatics didn't?

From the CRG EMISSIONS SYSTEMS report:

Quote
Generally speaking, an automatic car required less aggressive emission control than a manual transmission car because the engine load (and carburetor fuel metering consistency) was more stable and predictable.
Automatic cars still got "smog" equipment, but it was the simpler CCS system.

If all he says is true where is the POP? Wrong jack and in my opinion wrong spare. I'd have to look at it real close to believe the sales pitch.

There are SOOOO many things wrong.

"TOTALLY STOCK SURVIVIOR"

Hardly.

1. Looks to have replacement stainless exhaust
2. Looks like it has an aftermarket Hurst shifter to me
3. Hurst emblem on the console??? Certainly not "stock".
4. GM sticker on the door jam
6. Repop NK1 steering wheel
7. As been observed already, missing smog
8. As been observed already, repop jack and hold down (the air cleaner stud looks to be just a bit too long too!)
8. "Triple Dusk Blue Z28/RS less the 1% had this color and options combination" - I have NO CLUE where he got this info from. Must have pulled it out of his @$$
9. "F41 suspension" - Sorry, NOT available on the Z28
10. "I have over $71,000 in NADA/McNeish Value at $75,000+" - Jerry didn't certify this car, so where did this number come from??

Many other things as well, but I don't have the time to post them all

Nice car and color combo but way to many things wrong and the stories just don't  jive. I asked for title info, vin #'s trans # trim tag # DZ # etc and am still waiting
Bidding is going crazy but this car screams buyer beware!

With a starting bid of 666 that sure made me look twice.  ;)
Many times I think these bids are the same people under different names to drive the price up.

I was looking at that listing yesterday, it is a very nice color combination, but as pointed out, many inaccuracies for the way the car is described.
What about the statement that California cars never got the chambered exhaust?!

Or the statement, "Norwood built really stood for No Smog Required!!"   ::)
