Thought of 'PR' for Paragon Reproductions, but can't think of any similar examples of a reproduction item of this nature on which the reproducer marks their logo in a prominent place.

That price is just crazy;   seriously it is.   My car has one; original (I think) it was on there when the car was bought when I was 18.  It was all bent and
needed straightened.   Never has it crossed  my mind that someone would expect a price like that for one!

I emailed Paragon last night and haven't heard back from them yet. If anyone has a repop bracket from HBC or Paragon, please post a photo, I'd be interested to see if the Pr stamp belongs to Paragon.

Jim, could you post a photo of the manufacturers stamp if you are confident your bracket is an original?

Glad I don't need one on my Z. And $500.00 is the STARTING price.

Here's a thread from a few years ago. I posted pictures of a bracket from I believe my 9A built Z.
 In the photos its pretty crusty, so I'll see it there are any visible stampings/markings tonight.

At one time I really believed in the supply and demand side of these specific Z28 parts and prices, but IMHO it's much more then that now. Is there a cut off point when the price is way out of line or does the price just keep going up? and WHO are the ones going to able to afford these parts? Definitely takes the fun out of it for me. I have a DZ block I want to sell outright or make an even trade for a numbers alternator but seem to fall short either way, but yet there are sellers on ebay asking some big money for these 2 specific parts but never sell them. So why are they holding onto these parts? IDK, just saying.

Just saw another one advertised as original for $145, still pricey but not as  :o as the $500 eBay listing.

The bracket on my 11A Z28 has "Stamp Rite" stamping.  I also have another bracket with the "PR" stamping and if I remember correctly its a repop that I purchased from Classic Industries in approx 1987. Don't know if the repops now have that stamping or none.

I'm going to send Paragon a photo of the bracket I have and enquire if its their repro. Thanks for the info.

No response from Paragon as yet.  Anyone have any conclusive info on the Pr stamp?

a year or two ago I saw an original bracket go over $500 on the auction site. I paid over that for mine but it was attached to the original carb
