Help with Z/28 proof?
« on: October 19, 2017, 12:18:16 AM »
Ihave new piece of evidence maybe? Iwould like some expert opinions as to NCRS production date and how it correlated to delivery to the dealer.   as many of you know I have a 68 SS or Z/28, thats all i can prove, I have posted many pics on here of the correct Z intake, oil fill tube, oil cap, carb, exhaust manifolds, fan blade, distributor, rear end, firewall w/ muncie hole, 4 spd hole reinforcement plate, thermo housing, oil pan, dip stick, valve covers, DF rims etc etc...all dated before the manufacture date and by your opinions within the normal range for the cars date.  but the MO block and trans are not with the car.  a forum member saw some of my posts and sent me some original sale ads from Bill Conner Chevy Inc. the NCRS tells me thats where my car was shipped to. One of the ads is an Action sale ad thats for second week of August! my car was finished at GM on July 10th, the ad clearly shows a 68 Z/28 in British green for sale !! in my crazy mind that may very well be my car ???    anyone offer any info on time between completion to delivered?

Too bad they didn't use the last 4 of the VIN for the stock number. The dealer in Tucson didn't use the vin for the stock number either....Joe

It COULD be the car.

There were a lot of British Green Z28s built late in the 68 model year.

Yes unfortunate the stock number wasn’t part of the VIN. Some dealerships did that.

Yes it might as stated but no matter what it sure makes a neat thing to add to the car for conversation.

To look at another side of this it COULD be a Ralley Green car. Both teal blue and Ralley were spring additions and there's a teal blue car listed. Sure would be cool if this was yours.
