Nice car.
But it originally was gold and was a L30/M35 and had a POP.

 So that whole impressive accolade writeup is pure BS then?
And I am a Felix the Cat fan!  :'(

Maybe someone should notify Mecum if this is fraud.

Not sweet!  :(

CRG to the rescue, again!  That explains why there's no JM certification like many of the Mecum Camaros.

I just sent them a message that they need to investigate the car closer..

Thanks Kurt - I emailed Mecum for more info, sent the link to JM & was seriously thinking of going to the auction to try buy this car - if it checked out as a 67Z!

What a great site😀

I just heard back from JM - definitely a fake....IMHO Mecum should follow BJ's lead & bring in experts like JM to check out the "rare" original cars.

In such a case, would this one be described as 'rebodied'..  or 'with a restoration drivetrain'?  :)

I would venture to guess that one of the owners swapped trim tags & drivetrain.  Keeping its original vin & hidden vins..  Would like to see stampings as to whether or not they are legit or restamps but I betting the latter.  I was contacted by Mecum through email so I gave them the link to this thread. Hopefully this will get resolved.

I received a reply from Mecum also.
To be honest, I  found it offensive. No 'Thanks for letting us know' or anything like that. But requested for me to send detailed photos like I had done an inspection on the car and "Please also include all your contact information".
I sent the tag pic, told them what Jerry said (bogus trim tag), and suggested they should "Auction the car and see what happens....."

Lol yeah I got the same email..  We exchanged a couple emails and I got the "thanks for your time & information.."  I said I guess that there's nothing that can be done..  Would hate for someone to put up big money and later find out it wasn't what it was advertised. I guess the old saying is true, Buyer Beware..

 Mecum only wants the money from the sale.
