Hey Peter most of the 302 motors were minus the cranks and rods, did you see them in the barns ? Vince
Hi Vince,
Yes, there were engine, body and interior parts all over the 5 buildings of every type and description.
I would guess that most engines that were there would be able to be completely built with just the parts that were there.

Is one of the cars the 69 Z-28 with no trim tag, that they claim is a X77 ?
Yes, that particular car had all the signs of being an X77
No trim
Power Disk brakes
Correct part numbers on the motor mounts
12 bolt rear
4 leafs
Muncie Hole
Distribution block and last but not least, X7 grease pencil mark

I noticed in your videos on youtube you were restoring a LB 69 Z.  Tell us about that car?  Original drivetrain?  Post up some photos!

My Lemans Blue car is being reassembled now and I have a series of YouTube videos on that car on my channel. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1YHj9wgP_Aih1THOSXqQOdoB0F3CCLlA
I was lucky enough to have successfully contact the second owner of the car and buy the original engine block for the car. The original rear end was with the car, but the transmission is not original to the car.
The car has been certified by JM .
Here is the car as it sits presently and I will be producing more YouTube videos on the completion of the car over the next few months

Maybe you missed it but I asked if you had photos of the stampings for the DB.  I took a little time and went back in your videos and pulled images so we could add it and let others take a look.  I figured you wouldn't mind sense it was shared in the video.  I gotta say you moved pretty quick over the stuff but I was able to snag some decent shots.  Nice restoration btw.  I am curious about the story as to how you found the "original" engine?  I think you said the trans was a restamp or am I misremembering?

I've heard that some of the cars may not be what they appear to be, buyer beware and be informed. :)
I was there and looked at every car in detail.
Every one of them are exactly what they appear to be.
The owner only bought quality cars over a 25 year period.
Yes, there were a a few 6 cylinder or standard cars, but 98% were the real deal.
Beware of opinions from anyone who wasnít there



 It is my understanding that THEE BLOCK FOR THAT CAR WAS IN THE LOT of dz blocks

I watched Peterís YouTube barn find video. Itís always exciting when these finds pop up!  When I travel for work and driving some back roads, I often wonder what could be stored away in the barns and sheds I pass by?!?

Peter,
I sent you an email to I introduce myself, and share some info on my Ď69 LeMans Blue RS Z28. I have several questions about what you found on your Camaro when you restored it. Would like to chat some time.
