rebody Z made Hot Rod
« on: April 11, 2015, 02:01:49 PM »
Hot Rod had a write up on Barrett Jackson and listed some cars that sold. The green Pratt Z is in there and says an already nice car brought back. A forensic document examiner was used to confirm the Z28s paper trail. Writer must not understand Jerrys comments. Page 58 if you want to look. Just got it yesterday
1969 Z28, Burgandy, numbers matching, 12,900 miles
1968 RS 327 4 speed
1967 Plymouth GTX Hemi, 4 speed, dana
1961 Chrysler 300G convertible

I think this time when they sold it he only certified the paperwork. 

This 69 Chevrolet Camarao Z/28 (Lot #2035) has been thoroughly restored by Kent Waters Originals. It comes with voluminous documentation certified by Camaro expert Jerry MacNeish, plus photos of the car in 1969 and step-by-step photos of the restoration process. It is finished in authentic and vibrant Rally Green with white racing stripes and a black bucket seat interior. It has a rare NOS Cross-Ram intake manifold, 4.10:1 differential, and many factory options, including Rally Sport trim, rosewood dash inserts, center console with auxiliary gauges and an Endura front bumper.

This 69 Chevrolet Camarao Z/28 (Lot #2035) will cross the auction block in Scottsdale on Tuesday, Jan. 13.

the barrett jackson catalog even stated the car is a rebody. i guess that shows somebody (the writer) was a bit um, slow in the catchup. and it was bid to $135,000, the number in HotRod must have been with all the added BJ pay checks. The bar it sets is kinda crooked................(no pun intended). It was kinda funny watchin', the bid went to 140,000.00 pretty quick, then the auctioneer announced it was a rebody and the bid amount dropped to 130,000 and it was a struggle to get it back up to 135,000. I've got a video of the whole thing.
and not only did the car "make Hot Rod", it was on the Official Barrett Jackson event T shirts. Yes I bought one.
opinions are like wallets, some just aren't worth stealin'.

I guess I don't understand, I don't get hotrod.  Is there something about the car that is bothering collectors?

What's the story with the RS front grill emblem?
