Not all that uncommon to have 'stamp bounce' from what I've seen, but it usually appears with all or at least the adjacent ones in the string being somewhat affected by or with the same issues.. in this case from what my poor eyes can decipher it appears that just the 'V' appears affected which is kind of strange as it was a gang stamp procedure from what I know.
My early Z has this also and all the digits display some 'echo' - but in my case it gets progressively less pronounced towards one end of the string..
Is a 44**** series stamping in line with a 05 month date? I thought that seems kind of low considering, but I will defer to more learned opinions?
Too bad the other casting numbers aren't shown or mentioned as well..
Considering all of the rust on the sheet metal in addition to any and all of mechanical bits as shown, even if the body is solid and those are actually 'born with' guts, it would require a substantial investment on top of the final selling price to bring it back certainly.
It's bad it wasn't stored better - it would have been a  real keeper!

I wish somebody from CRG that lived close would go look at it. So we can get pictures of the Trans, Rear-End, and just the whole underside of the car. Plus more casting numbers throughout. The description is SO vague Angry
I would say if it was a Lemans Blue RS it would bring the bigger money. Don't get me wrong, I like the color. My first ever Camaro was BY with the RS package. Had the POP also, sold it for 5K... Rats.... I think since this has SO MUCH documentation, that if it all pans out... 30K ?   Danny

Love the look of this car, can't beat bias plys on DF rallys. Doesn't look like there's a thing wrong with it. Add some new tires and hoses and I'd drive it like it sits. Hmm...what could I sell for 25k in a jiffy?  Smiley

Too rich for my blood. POP and docs worth a few bucks, but not 20K more!!! ... Danny

It will be for sale for a LONG time at those kind of prices Danny is communicating. Nice 68 Z's restored only go normally for 60 to 65K.

$19,600 on eBay at the present moment. I agree with JKZ27 - I believe I would bring this car back to the edge and drive it.

Maybe too soft a spot in the heart for a Z like this - it deserves better care than it's experienced for a long time -

Take a look at the transmission stamps, what do ya all think?. I talked to him for an hour a couple days ago and showed him where to look and where to take the pictures. I was just getting ready to edit them when they showed up on the auction. Looks good? ... Danny

Are you aware of a 'restored' '68 Z28 that you would choose over that unrestored car??

Cool car (I have an Oct 67 build Z) but the price is really up there. I think a good driver condition 68 with original motor is around mid 30s - sound right?

I can't recall the last time (if ever), I've seen an original '68 Z28 as complete as that one...  I like it, but I'm a bit weird.. Smiley   I strongly prefer original completeness vs restored repro cars...

I guess if I had to think about it I would choose one ALL finished and completely original. But I still like the thrill of these kinds of survivor cars. I am just not in great health right now, so couldn't take it on. Although my buddy wants to go in together and buy it. Ya never know. But yes, I know of probably 6 cars I would like to have right now. Here is a couple three below....Danny

I was thinking the same thing.  Gary must not have seen Chicks build thread over on Team Camaro.  Hands down the nicest 68 Z restoration I have seen to date.

No, I haven't seen his build thread...  I've only been 'back on' my Camaro for 3-4 yrs, and I don't often get to TC, except to check out the classified, or to post a 'how to' question.   Please note:  I'm not 'casting aspersions' at anyone's restored Camaro, especially not Chick's, whom I've learned to be a very knowledgable Camaro enthusiast during my time here at CRG.   I was only saying that *I personally* prefer to buy original unrestored cars, the nicer and more complete the better, than a 'restored' car (esp one that I didn't KNOW as a Z28 before the restoration).  It's difficult-impossible to ascertain 'after the fact', whether the perfectly restored part on the restored car was in fact ORIGINAL to that car, or not!  Coupled with the fact that this Z28 in question is 'complete' wtih smog/etc (obviously original to the car) makes it VERY UNUSUAL... and I like it very much!  Smiley

Not bashing you Gary just giving you a hard time.  If you get time look through his build thread.  It is about as nice a restoration as you can get with the majority of the parts being original or NOS.


Get a cup of coffee and be prepared to look for a couple hours.   Grin
