Alleged 12A '69 Z/28 with an X33 tag and a repro 140 speedo. Also U16, ZL2, '69 rear spoiler and straight head restraints.

Didn't see any pics of the important drivetrain parts. Too many things don't make sense...

Does the Trim Tag look authentic?

12A is prior to the implementation of X codes on body tags at Fisher.

N555679 was final-assembled on or about Friday Dec 6th meaning it was ordered late October/early November. U16 and ZL2 didn't exist at that time; cars built with D80 used the '68 rear spoiler. Straight head restraints were discontinued mid-November. COPO 9737 included the 140 speedometer; was n/a on the Z/28 and also didn't exist when the car was ordered.

You be the judge.
