To bad it doesn't have the original block but still a very cool car and story.

Car was ordered in May 1968 and delivered in November 68, 6 months...  is that possible ?

Built close to my own recent purchase. I have been scanning the pics and description. While it is original, to bad it wasn't better taken care of over the years. I would love to have a few parts on it though. SO if someone on here has to have it, and do a nut and bolt resto, I would be glad to take the old dirty parts off your hands... ;)

Austin, it sure would look good sitting beside your other garnet red car. You sure you don't want to buy it.  :D

No. The number on the body tag is the order confirmation number. It was issued when Central Office accepted the order and put it in the schedule. The sequence started at 100001. Based the body tag number of 161652, this car was ordered mid-September 1968. At that time Chevrolet was flooded with Z/28 orders and gave dealers allocations to order against. Low-volume dealers were low priority and experienced delays.

The car was built on or about November 7, 1968. From order to delivery that's about 8 weeks. I've heard worse.

I may purchase another red Z, but it will not be this one... ;)

I will totally get behind the buyer of this car to Restore it to its original beauty. Even though there is some original paint, I think a restoration is in order for this car.

I'm not familiar with the term 'dutchman panel'...  Can someone explain what it is and where that term comes from?

That wrecked front fenders seems to exhibit some 'prior bondo work' as well... so it's likely that the car was *totally repainted, or almost so* at one time...   and the paint doesn't look like lacquer to me... more like cheap 70's enamel from a 'fast repaint' body shop...

Haven't heard that term in a while, but he's referring to the rear window panel (between the window and deck lid).  Where it originated from ? ... good question  ::)

I talked to the seller. He has had a number of Camaros it sounds like. He said it has had some touch up work done to the paint in different spots over the years. So it is debatable if there is any original paint on the car now. Definitely some bondo used when they did some of the work though, so I would surmise that there is other bondo still hidden on the car.
