I agree Ed. I saw the springs and exhaust also. It has a matching dist., carb., intake. But of course, that means nothing. Those GIANT river marks were filled in pretty good until I had them remove the paint. What the hell would cause that? Note the first hidden VIN DOES match. And it's a 678 block. My buddy is there so I can get a better trans stamp and the VIN on the trans should be coming any time. Block casting looks like July 3rd '68. ... Danny

A Nicolson File would cause that. Ha Ha, those are not GM broach marks. IMO.

Car was in pieces. It was assembled and the motor and trans rebuilt. Or at least the motor for sure. The paint is new/fresh. It needs ALOT of work as far as I am concerned. I am not an expert. Light working knowledge only. I trust the judgment of Ed, Bryon, Jerry, Kurt, William, Darrell... etc. you know the group of guys. Plus a few more. So I am really wondering on this one. Transmission to get a trans pic, and a rear cast date. We will see... Danny

Broaching does not conform to known legit examples. As stated the broaching scrapes should be parallel to each other.

Ad is very deceptive, leading, and "playing" with words.
"Numbers matching" is really just a loose, over used description any more. If somebody was to go 98k on this one and had issues, a fair attorney could get the seller out of it.

Danny pointed out those gaps,,any takers on filler?

My guess car will go for a bit under 98K, and if buyer saves say 30%,,what a deal..

I was told by my friend who restores cars and has a collection... that no way to re-align the repro fenders. Not when the front end lines up. And that metal will have to be added. He said he could stick his whole thumb in the gaps. Mr. Jano, can you post that picture of them side by side please. Still no trans pic. Will update accordingly... Danny

Sorry, not posting my pad pic.

may be here, or yenko I read the post. someone out there renting a gangstamp?? so you can have a "correct numbers match engine" I'm out on showing a simple comparison.

I usually can care less what's  for sale, only a few ever irk me. this is an example of one. An insult to anybody who has spent thousands of hours trying to "get it right" A poor facsimile of good. IMHO

Private owner, different story.
Guy posting his finished project, or at a show: thumbs up!

Of course,  if this does pull coin,,ramps um all up. Until the economy re-adjusts.

All these posts and noone added the VIN: 124378L348454

I trust the judgment of Ed, Bryon, Jerry, Kurt, William, Darrell... etc. you know the group of guys. Plus a few more. So I am really wondering on this one.
I'm confused. You say you trust the judgement, then you say that you are really wondering. Wondering about what? They said it's a restamp numerous times. I say it's clearly a restamped pad and an overstamped axle.

Sorry, not posting my pad pic.
I completely agree. Nothing to be gained and there is something to lose.

Kurt my comment... "So I am really wondering on this one" .... Is related to the WHOLE package. I made the bet with my friend because even " I "thought it was a re-stamp. BUT we STILL don't know about the transmission VIN. So yes the trust is still there and will always be... But I am STILL wondering if this was ever even a real Z/28. Or did they take a SS 4-Speed car and drop in a re-stamped drive train. The glove box sticker was painted over thick. WHO would do that if they knew they had a real Z/28. The whole package is suspect to me and has been from the start. Hope that clears it up for ya  ... Danny

That extra 10 grand is for the "free shipping"!

And by the way, I'd double check the VIN on that car. It's probably just a typo, but he has the VIN listed as 124378L348454 instead of 124378L348453!
