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 

In which case, you probably got the original fuel line and fuel block as well?  :)

After following up with Paragon and providing them photos of the bracket and manufacturer's stamp (photos previously posted), here is what they reported back (combining 2 emails):

Subject: RE: Fuel Line Support Bracket - Paragon Number: 2053K

"We still manufacture this part and still sell it under part# 2053K for
$22.00 dollars. I currently have 42 in stock. This is what's left of the 500
we produced in 2009.The "PR" stamp is ours and stands for Paragon Reproductions"

It is clear and confirmed the bracket with the <Pr> stamp is their reproduction part.

Now that it's clear his part WAS a Paragon reproduction part, it's REALLY funny that he says in his ad  "1969 Z28 used original rear fuel line bracket the attaches to the carburetor. Has the manufacturer stamp on it. Rare find. Don't use repo parts. Free Shipping via USPS Priority Mail with insurance"   and ONLY $500 (starting bid) for this used $22 reproduction part???  :)

Holy Cow!

There was one that sold in May 2012 on EBay for $504.  The bidding started at 99 cents.  It was EBay item auction number 220998003115.

I saved pictures of it.  Here is one of the pictures of that bracket in all it's fraudulent glory:

Wow, what a lesson someone learned the hard way or maybe not and they still believe to this day they scored.
Again, very impressive detective work Paul!!

Or maybe this latest one for sale was the one purchased in 2012?  :)    Can't blame a fella for trying to recoup his losses eh?  :)

Ive watched alot of his auctions, he had alot of hard to find stuff that went for crazy money, nowadays he just lists his stuff high.

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 

David- thats the pic from the auction?
mine doesent have that stamp  :'(  ;)

I've dealt with him a couple of times and have even talked with him on the phone. He always seems very knowledgeable and honest and has a lot of hard to find NOS and original parts that are always very pricey. From my dealings with him I am very surprised that he sold a repop part  and called it a "original GM part" for that crazy money. Just goes to show one has to be very careful and do lots of homework on any parts with any seller.

Does anyone know who sells the correct screw for the bracket?
