barrett jackson las vegas Z-28
« on: October 17, 2008, 07:39:46 PM »
My curiosity was peaked the other day when i opened my recent issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines and saw a picture of what could be my old RS Z28. It's a TWIN. Except for the stripes missing over the fender wells, the picture is my old car. Then i went to the B/J web site and checked the description of the car and the paper work that came with it, and it's the very same as the paper work i had. Is there any way to check the VIN on the B/J car to see ? ...... And really, just how many early production, ralley green, ralley sport, Z-28's could there be, with a flat hood, and optional headrests, narrow rear spoiler, enduro bumper, ect.............I mean it's an identicle twin !

If you still have the paperwork, I would consider contacting BJ, but can you prove the old car is gone? Legal issues could get ugly. Have you shared the info, vin etc, on the Z with this forum?

Yup, that's probably your old car.
I thought when you sold the paperwork, it included a shell?

If not, then it got a new shell......

yup. by the time I got it (in 197?), the original engine was gone and an LT-1 350 was in the car. It still had the original  M-20 Munchie and rear axle ect. (a 3.73 geared posi.) And it was a 1968 Norwood build. Again, I hope it's a TWIN.

It's not a twin. It's the same car (well, same VIN).
The car reappeared on ebay a year ago with a partially restored shell. I thought it could be that someone had fixed the shell that you had.
Now it's a finished car and Jerry did appraise it. I told him I wasn't sure if the original shell was with the tags and a note about that appears in his report.

well i wish him luck. i guess my name is one of the three registered owners ...... oh well, if the new owner needs any info i can give, again my phone number is xxxxxxx. I'll be watching speed channel to see how it does. It should be worth the sum of it's parts and labor. It does look very nice, 'cept it's missing the stripes above the wheel openings.

This thread brings up a thought, have you considered posting a list of "deceased" vins? Could even include a notice of paperwork status when known?

I cannot believe the car will sell for enough to cover the resoration and REBUILD costs. I will also be watching to see.

If someone is dishonest enough to sell a fake Z, seemingly restored from the documentation alone, why would they pay to do anything else legal?
