Finding info on Z28 I sold in 1982
« on: September 08, 2023, 08:50:07 PM »
Am I allowed to enter the vin of a car I sold to see if it is still known to be around?

Thank for the reply’s. The vin is 124379n584528. I bought the car in march of 77. A few years later when Ohio would still release previous owner records I was able to contact the original owners father who confirmed it was an original Z28. And the history of the original engine and trans. Pot a lot of money and time in rebuilding suspension and new fenders quarters etc. I sold it in 82 to purchase a house. Hopefully it has not been parted out and someone is still burning rubber with it.

I did some personal checking. It was last registered in 2008 and it was in Ohio at that time.

Don't get your hopes up. I found my first car, the one I had in HS and drove through college. Current owner won't sell, but it sits in a machine shed gathering dust.

Thanks for asking, the original color is the blue you see in the pics. White stripes. It had the standard interior in dark blue that I changed out the seats front and back to white with a folding back seat. Also added a console with gauges. At the time these cars were not coveted for being original. I learned from the original owners dad that the engine was blown up and pulled out to disassemble someone stole the trans. I bought it with a 396 and a four speed. I then bought a new LS6 454 short block and installed a set of L89 aluminum heads.
