Guessing this is the second car??  (The black one).  I didn't get too many good photos (preoccupied).  UNBELIEVABLE CAR... 8000 mi.(?) BARN FIND

I did want to add my $0.02 worth regarding the paint questions above... Recognizing the different circumstances of their 'birth', i'm of the opinion the anomalies in coloration are 'correct' (or at least, NOT 'incorrect') for all 3 cars (strange as this may seem). The world of the '67IPC is a strange and sometimes mysterious place.  Rarely if ever is the opportunity presented to see some of these esoteric differences highlighted in side-by-side comparison! I don't want to sidetrack the discussion of all these other great cars with a bumpy detour down the IPC rabbit hole. If anyone has interest for more info., PM me and I'll pass along some reference links at the IPC site... /Charley/

'67 06D (LOS) L-78 Coupe (body) (1979 barn find) - Traded 2018 to my car builder!

Yes.  Also the silver car is I believe Benny Pfeiffer's recently (little over a year ago) purchased survivor.

I did also go to nationals to look at some original cars so I can gather “correct” restoration information.
The white 1968 Z28 with cowl plenum in my opinion was an outstanding original car and had a plethora of original information to learn from.
