Real Trim Tag?
« on: September 27, 2018, 12:17:33 AM »
Hi All,

New to the board and am looking at buying a '69 SS.  I was wondering if the experts here could determine whether this is a real trim tag or not:

I owned a couple of '69 Camaros in the past -- a Z28 and a real SS (396/325) when I was much younger.  Back in the '70s we didn't worry much about trim tags being counterfeited!  Still kick myself for selling them and am reliving my youth by searching for a replacement!  LOL!

Thanks in advance!

Reproduction in my opinion.  No doubt.

Thanks.  The pic was sent to me with the disclaimer that it might be a repro.

This particular car is very clean and has been restored frame-up with good pics of what was done and the component numbers.  It's a 396/375 (NOM, correct casting), M21, 12bolt, and from my 'newbie' research has all the right parts & pieces.  All the numbers appear to be correct -- someone took their time to get it right (from what I see in pics.)

What might be an expected value?  (I'm sure there are quite a few other variables...)

EDIT:

Well, well, well.  Search has found this: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=16892.msg153357#msg153357

How much overpriced is this one?

Thanks...
