So I looked at the auction, and noticed a couple of things different from my 69 RS/Z; Mine's a 10B (1968 build) car, so a month later than this one. No RS emblem on my grille, so maybe someone added that to this car? My steering wheel is also different. I have an RS emblem on my steering wheel. Mine has the wood grain insert as well. Should this one have the RS emblem on the steering wheel? I see the the bright pedal trim, so it's got the special interior group trim I believe.

To me, a person with a parts car would be the only person who come out of this one. Prefferably some with a body shop who,s guys get slack occasionally. A reasonable # would be fair for someone who might track the engine and doc,s.

Oh that's a good obsevation !  does anyone know if there are others out there with both emblems on the grille.  I did see the back side from inside the engine compartment and I saw the GM p/n's on the backs.

i looked in Jerry`s 4th edition book and he has 2 RS z`s pictured and neither one has the RS emblem in the grill. not saying it`s wrong to have the emblem but looks like it was added IMO.

Car sold !  I know a guy was coming up from the Miami area to look at it.. he must have bought it.
On the RS emblem.  If it was added it must of been added when the car was pretty new, within it being parked in '75.  You could tell it was aged and pitted equally to the rest of the car.

Maybe the guy who bought it is the one who has that TV show. Can't think of the name of the show, but he's a character, and his wife's a well endowed blonde. One of those soap opera car shows where they wheel and deal cars, fix up, and supposedly make money.

Trim tag is 69 cortez with 719 red custom interior.  Build is 08B Sept '68. Had.... proportioning valve
Which proportioning valve? The one under the booster?

Btw, it's 718, red standard. :)

The Z/28 emblem would override the R/S emblem. Chevy wouldn't put two emblems on the car. What would they do on the rear body panel?

We CRGers know how it is supposed to be, but what about the guys building them back then. This may have been the first Z or, at least, Z/RS built in 69! Maybe there was some confusion or no clarity at the start of production and it got both emblems. Is that possible? Who knows if that is even the original grille. I am just throwing out an idea that perhaps early in production, some anomalies may have occured until assemblies were clarified by supervision. I could see how it could be possible to leave the plant with both emblems myself. Others have a thought? JohnZ? Ed?

The only emblem on a R/S Z that wouldnt be "Z/28" would be "rally-sport" on the sides of the fenders.  Normally where the Camaro script would be.  Grille front edge of fenders and tail panel are "Z/28"

Anything is possible, but two emblems on the grille would stick out like a sore thumb and probably wouldn't make it out of the plant. There were only two possible rear panel emblems - the Bowtie, and the Z/28, both of which had the same pre-pierced pin/hole pattern.
