Another Black 69 Z28
« on: February 12, 2021, 09:12:06 PM »
There sure seems to be a rash of black  69 Z28's popping up lately. Thoughts on this one?

Looks like 10D car with late September DZ block.

The air cleaner seal is not installed correctly that's for sure.

VIN : 124379N703782

There will be a real black 1969 Z28 coming up for sale in auction in the near future. And it has RED interior. Possibly one of the most highly desired combinations.

No reason to. Repro.

I have photos of two other V0923DZ stamps. This one does not match.

There was a recent case where it was found that the seller had removed the trim tag from a 1969 Z28 and changed the tag to show that the exterior color was black:

http://www.vintageautomotive.net/?tag=trim-tag

Although I didn't start working at GMAD Van Nuys until we were building the second generation Camaros and Firebirds, I can't recall a time when someone had to replace a trim tag.  I actually had the opportunity to make a few replacement VIN tags that were damaged in the assembly plant, but we would only do so if we were given the original VIN tag first as we had to account for each tag and send the damaged tag back to GM in Detroit.

Yes. That is a true story. I know some of the people involved.

So the moral of the story is - do not mess with trim tags! And if you change one, expect someone to take you to court!!

I know a lot of people donít like Burnished Brown, but with white stripes I REALLY like it!

The subject car from the OP is indeed beautiful, but the repro tag would put me off for good.

If I ever have a chance to buy a Burnished Brown Camaro or Nova, I hope I can get it.

I think if you check paint codes at cruise ins you might find one under a respray. I look at codes on red or black cars just to see if it is the factory color. Many are not and the owners do not even know what the paint codes mean. I kind of like bb myself. Saw Buddy,s car at a Raliegh NC show years ago and it just stuck.

Good idea.

There was a BB 1969 SS 350 4 speed Nova that I looked at maybe 18 or so years ago. No engine or trans but the 12 bolt was there and the flies, trunk and body were very solid. Had gone to look at a Chevelle. The Chevelle was not in acceptable condition in my opinion, and the guy wouldnít sell the Nova.
