I thought it was a good heads up post on both sites. The dealer only really acknowledged that the motor was not numbers matching, and didn't seem aware of trans or rear until I asked for pics. I am unaware if he is in on it, he was nice enough to send me some pics though. Its to bad he couldn't see enough of the partial vin to relay it to me. Whenever a car like this is presented and found out, it just makes me wonder how many more of these cars are out there. Further more it seems like a good amount of them (acknowledged/unacknowledged clones) have a 69 DZ motor in them from another Z. I wonder how many guys with original Z bodied cars, original motor/trans are floating around in another Z real or not?

Just food for thought.

I would guess that for ever original Z28 engine that was removed from a car and 'transplanted' to another, at least NINE original motors were blown up by over revving.  I have a '70 LT1 engine that was built from a 4-bolt truck block (NOT restamped) but with the main internals (crank and rods), heads, intake, etc from a real LT1.  I call this a '70 LT1 engine even though it is not stamped as such.

Another way of saying the above is that most of the incorrect Z28's with 'original represented or appearing' engines are restamped.

Gentleman what it all comes down to is one word " GREED " the age old curse of the human race.  Caveat Emptor. The Internet Justice League will keep them in check....
