I bought an 05C X77 720 72-72 car this week. It has no console, guages, tac, or center fuel gauge. A real plain jane except its really ORANGE and has the rosewood dash. It does have front and rear spoilers but not the D80 on the cowl tag? I just wanted to be sure it was factory spoiler equiped by the third week of May? It does have a cowl hood but I've read it's unlikely its original via the low production totals so my plans are to switch to the flat hood. With the lack of RPO's this car has I think it would be fitting to keep it simple since I wont be competeing for attention with the X33 RS cars anyhow Smiley But I think it will look sweet next to my Z11.

Body 321319
VIN 6443XX

05C is too early for D80.

Factory ducted hood cars have additional wiring and firewall piercing. Easy to tell but also easy to add.

I had 2 twins to your car many years ago; only options on one were gauges, power steering and am radio; the other also had JL8.

I think there is a post on this in the forum. On the factory rear Spoiler cars one of the torsion bars was thicker than the other. I can't remember if it's top or bottom

AS OF APRIL FIRST, SPOILERS WERE MANDATORY AND THE PROCE OF THE Z-28 OPTION WENT FROM 473.95 TO 506.60 TO INCLUDE THE PRICE OF THE SPOILERS. AS FAR AS THE DUCTED HOOD, THERE IS A HOLE IN THE FIREWALL ANOVE THE FUSE BOX FOR THE HARNESS TO RUN THROUGH. I THINK IT IS 3/4THS OF AN INCH IN DIAMETER. SEARCH CRG FOR A THREAD ON IT. IT WAS JUST DISCUSSED NOT TOO LONG AGO.

Thanks for the info, I'll check the trunk rods and firewall piercings for the signs. I'll get the tag posted for authenticity when I get it home. Why did they continue to put the D80 on the tags of some cars after April when it was included in the package?

Dealer added rear spoilers can sometimes be identified by raising the trunk lid and looling at the underside of the trunk lid.  Often you can see where the factory Camaro emblem on the trunk lid was removed prior to the dealer installing the rear spoiler.  Often the original mounting holes for the Camaro emblem (although filled) can still be made out.

Also, do a search on this site.  There was a previous thread about the correct mounting hardware used by the factory to install the rear spoiler.  Check if the spoiler is mounted with the correct hardware from the factory.

All factory spoiler cars have two sets of emblem mounting holes on the trunklid, the originals and the set that was drilled with the same tooling that drilled the spoiler mounting holes.  At most the original holes got a peice of tape placed over them before the spoiler was mounted.

Mark,

Thanks for the clarification.   Only one set of monting holes on my trunk lid with some kind of filler in them and painted over.  Visible from the underside of the trunk lid.  Since only one set of holes, dealer added item.

Thanks again for the information.

I bought this car with the understanding that it was a NOM although it has a 302 DZ block with assembly code V0602DZ in it. The previous owner bought the car in 1984 and at the time didn't really give much consideration to the authenticity of the motor and has never looked for the partial. The conditions where the car has been stored for the last 15 years wouldn't allow me to try and locate a partial at the rough casting so I just assumed the block not to be original because the assembly date of 0602 is later than the 05C build date by a week or two. I'm not missing anything am I ? Are their any circumstances I'm missing that this assembly could still fit the build period? The trans is original and the axel is dated inside 60 days. Not that it matters as I said it was bought at NOM money.

An 05C Z/28 would not have been built with a June 2 engine.

That would not bother me one bit; enjoy the car!!

I've got it half way home. Its at my buddies shop in Ohio now and he took a couple fuzzy photos. I can't complain to him he went out through that 20" snow storm to pick it up for me!  The 0602 might be an 0502? I'll have to get a good digital of it and check the rough casting.

The interior is pretty nice and I might be able to save it as original. The steering wheel is in the trunk....not a rosewood though Smiley

Is this a good enough digital shot to make a call on this tag? The assembly code has been highlighted with black marker and the pattern on the pad is from poor digital exposure but its all I have right now.
