Its been off the car and from that angle it looks fake.  Need a straight on pic for me to know 100%

Was looking at that last night, I believe the tag is fake too.

It is a nice looking car for sure. But I must be snooty or just bored.  With all of the attention given to such things as assembly chalk marks and paint marks added under the hood I think I see some issues. Please comment on these: I am doubting that the hounds tooth interior has not been replaced, the steering wheel grain looks incorrect, incorrect Hurst shift lever, incorrect exhaust, zip ties on the heater hoses, no spare and a black grille? with the surround not painted to match body color and the grille emblem placed incorrectly?

Let me know if I am wrong but I'd be willing to bet that the tag is also a FAKE

Wrong headrests...straight instead of curved...too late a car for straight. Tag is fake IMO. Wrong Master cylinder and I could go on and on. :-X

James I was unaware that there were 2 different head rests, when did they switch them?

Azure good eye with what you picked up, should this car have a short spoiler as well? ( if any at all)

Also looks like the hood was added on, just guessing since the wiring isn't hooked up to it.

I don't think the wood grain was that dark on the steering wheel and the dash was it? How about the fan shroud, maybe 68? Wasn't there a difference between the 68 and 69's?

http://www.camaros.org/headrest.shtml#1969 Here you go Bullitt65. Late November of 68. Car does not have proportioning valve under master. And distribution valve is in wrong location. I bet booster is wrong too. Like I said earlier, a lot of details are wrong and I am not a Z owner. I know my BB's better My Blue car has straight headrests, other 2 curved. Funny how a trained eye sees so much. Guess I could add missing hood side bumpers, air cleaner stud wrong. Horns wrong as is color of hood latch/hinges looks like early 2 piece kick panels.Bullitt, ask owner for VIN, bet it is pre-X code? Want me to keep looking? Love these "Correct" 100% rotiserrie resto mods on eBay. Don't get me started on the others on that site.

I was surprised to see the woodgrain dash on an X77 car, without Style Trim. Always though that was a no-no.

Valve covers could have used a trip to Jerry's to remove the polish. Bet they're drippers - OTC part numbers, too.

TT is possibly fake - definitely been struck hard to seat the rivets. Maybe removed for restoration ?

Regards,
Steve

Tag shows it as a X33, probably right about the valve covers, if that carb stud gets any longer its going to go through the hood.
