Black LOS Z28/RS JL8 car..crossram car
« on: July 12, 2023, 05:16:40 PM »
Hi all

Anyone know the whereabouts of a black with black deluxe RS/Z28 JL8 sporting a crossram and a ton of options....was a LOS car...was listed in Hemmings in '95 or '96...was owned at the time by Ed Uylate (sp?)

Curious where it went

I believe Ed Uylate (sp?....guy owned a lot of cars back then...Boss 429's, a '69 RG Yenko, 'vettes. etc.) listed this specific car in the fall of 1995 through Hemmings. A buddy and myself went to look at it...think he sold it at BJ Jan. '96.

The things that really concerned me about the car at the time were the fact it was a LOS car without paperwork and had a ton of "comfort" options which seemed odd given the performance options

Anyone remember the car?

The BJ auction says it was blue?

Not sure about what the auction says..  or candidly if he did in fact sell it there… he said he did but might not have.

If anyone has older Hemmings probably could find the listing .. the car was definitely black

The link leads to L507752. Built on or about November 11, 1968 more than three months prior to the first production JL8 cars. Originally Le Mans blue. Notes on it state the engine was a re-stamp.

Only other car fitting the description was sold at Russo-Steele AZ January 2006. Might actually be real, more than I can say for many of the other cross-ram black Z/28-RS that show up at auction.

Caveat Emptor!


Learning more and more about less and less...

Hey William...Greg here...we chatted last week about that other car

I might have my old copy of John Hooper's book somewhere, which is where I think I wrote the VIN of the LOS car in..

The car from a "numbers" standpoint checked out with dates before the body and stampings looking good. From what I remember the VIN was inline with known production dates as well..

If I remember at Ed wanted $19k for it...which was inline with Z prices from what I recall as well.

Rick Hendrix had a black 69 RS years ago. I saw it at a small show at one of his dealers, It was actually 2 but the other one I don,t think was a RS, not sure about JL8 on either. Both had crossrams on them. Said that he got them from GM. This was around the time GM was going broke.

I kinda remember a black JL8 RS Z with no stripes back in the 80's here in Central Ca.
