100K 69 Z/28 code 52
« on: June 09, 2014, 01:43:15 PM »
I thought of you Bullitt (Austin) when I saw this one. Not sure its 100K nice but I will admit it sure looks good!!
I see a few things wrong and for that money and I would have liked to seen documentation. But they sure make it look good in those pictures.

Is this one of the things you saw?



Something odd, its definately been off the car, but I don't have my tag files at work to compare this to, but I'm leaning towards it being a repro tag.  It is a sweet looking car though.

Not originally a gauge car, since it doesn't have a clock in the center of the dash.

Yes Mark something does look off there...

100k no smog or manifolds that'll run $2000 ouch! I saw the Tail light lenses (x77 didn't have vertical stainless trim), however the correct ones are not reproduced. Reproduction interiors just look too plastic to me.
Really a very nicely done car if the numbers checked out as legit...

I've not too big on red cars since I was a teenager but I do like Garnet red when it looks like that one!

Nicely presented, but no stampings shown, I don't like the tag, the rear with a December assembly date? I think mine is a week before production. You would think for 100k, you would get the right shift handle, not one out of a peterbilt! A lot of correcting to do with a hefty price tag!

Looks like a repo tag to me...  But would like a better straight on photo.

But it has the T3 headlights with even a close up pic. Surely everything is legit. :)
Yeah, I noticed that the rivets had been messed with for sure.
They are getting smarter and not posting any VIN numbers.

Mark, I'm just curious. After checking further did you decide if your suspicions were right and this one has a repop tag?

Only 243,085 69 Camaros were built. What body number is this one?...

I think it's a repro.

I keep forgetting that the body numbers were reset to 100,000 in August.... so my posts were irrelevant. Disregard...

It is not consistent with other tags of the same week, I have a bunch of tags from the same timeframe as this one and they don't have the same characters style on several of the numbers.  So yes I would say it is a repro.  The body number is also probably the original number though.  No telling what the car was originally now, was it just a color change on a Z, or was it a base 307 coupe.

X2 I came to the exact same conclusion...bad characters but body num was prob original.

Sorry, we have been moving into a new house so I am just now getting back up to speed. Nice pics but I also noticed the tail lights, exhaust tips look funny to me? I know its a fresh resto but sits a bit to high for me. I also noticed there wasn't a clock. So along with the trim tag, to me there is to many questionable items  , to think the rest of the car is legit. Documentation would be the key for a lot of it.
I do like the Garnet Red paint, but there may be a bit of photoshop used for the reflective properties in those pics.  ;)

thanks for posting, I didn't see it on ebay.
