It's been on ebay a few times.
I've never seen pic, but they said #'s match.
Next time on ebay, the car had a POP. No mention of it the first time - depending on the seller they may not have known what it was.....or it's new.

At least it shows a certificate by Jerry - must be authentic and a matcher.

Latest owner says its too much car for him to handle. He got a bid of 60K at Mecum in Dallas and passed. He had a 75K reserve, don't think the car is worth that much.

Other than them adding the hood and the wheel trim, what else is holding the car back?

He replaced original brake booster and master cylinder, and didn't keep them. Has 14" wheels, spray painted hood hinges and latch. Needs proper exhuast.

The other thing with that mecum auction to figure in, is the sellers premium. I am pretty sure Mecum dings the buyer and the seller. Thats why when they are putting the pressure on a guy to lift his reserve he will go back to mecum (or RM or Barret) and cut the percentage of their take down to get it sold. The brake booster, master and a set of wheels may only cost the seller a thousand or so, but I could see it scaring off a few buyers who want a correctly done car to add to their collection. Those couple of items could add thousands or a couple more bids at auction to meet his reserve.

Never assume that.
You have to read the whole appraisal. I actually dislike that Jerry makes those certificates. They really don't tell anything, but it's what people show.

how does an alternator with a 9DZ date code translate into April 3rd 1969? assuming the Z is actually a 2 wouldn't that be April 2nd??

Kurt,

   I don't like to assume anything - I do have to bow to Jerry's knowledge and experience, plus the fact he hangs his reputation on the line every time he prints one of those. Maybe I should have stated "the car has to be pretty close to earn a certificate" ?

Regards,
Steve

I have seen similar certificates from Jerry. This would be an example of what I mean:
- you have example A 1969 Camaro Z/28 non numbers matching or unverifiable because say Jerry couldn't read the vin stamp by the oil filter
-you have example B 1969 Camaro Z/28 all numbers matching drive train.

I both cases Jerry will issue a certificate saying that he finds the  car is an original Z/28 on the certificate
*now it is unclear the difference between the 2 cars until you read each report that accompanies said certificate. "The differences are in the details" of his report.

Now Jerry has seen more Camaros than I ever will up close and personal, and he knows a great detail about the model, but I have seen say ...corrections he has made in subsequent reports on the same car. So I agree with Kurt in the fact that you do not want to assume. I think most of his reports are correct, but nobody is right 100% of the time.
