ebay 69Z buyer beware.
« on: September 13, 2017, 03:17:01 AM »
I would be ashamed to show a close up of that trans and partial VIN block stamp.
"1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/ Z28 has the correct DZ 302 C.I. (290 HP) V8, I don't know if it's a numbers matching"

That's pathetic!

Might as well just write it in Crayon.

I have seen some block stamps that were somewhat similar to that * except that sideways 4.
While not typical I was not quick to rule it out as original.

Now the trans stamp does look ground down, and restamped to me.

The fact that he photographed and showed those questionable items perhaps indicates that he purchased the car that way, and had no personal knowledge of the issues... restamp or not...

I thought the front end was sitting a little high also... the restorer probably bought the same new springs as everyone else does... :)

Questions and issues aside...  'Has there EVER been a more beautiful color combination'???    :)

The engine and trans stamps look original. Someone just added the hokey VIN stamps....

While I would agree he trans looks ground down and re-stamped, the motor does not look like it has been. So how would they have re-stamped the motor VIN stamp then?

A little bit of knowledge is dangerous. Hard to explain how a car final-assembled around January 13, 1969 received an engine built 39 weeks later.

From the ad:

Quote
I don't know if it's a numbers matching...

This is ebay speak for "it's not".

Quote
True X33, RS/Z28 Camaro

And yet no picture of the trim tag. Wonder why that is!

And yes, it sold, but look at the buyer. Zero feedback. It'll be back, mark my words.
