Well, my offer was for "as is" right now, but if you want to complete the restoration first, I'd be happy to give you $1500.00...   Grin

The VIN was assigned as it entered the Chevy side. http://www.camaros.org/assemblyprocess.shtml#chev
It was then stamped in the sheetmetal and the VIN in the stamper was automatically indexed to the next VIN for the next car.
The VIN didn't advance correctly and they caught it. What's interesting is the broadcast sheets apparently were generated for this incorrect VIN, hence the engine VIN stamp.

Was the broadcast sheet on top of the gas tank?

They put numbers in a gang stamp.  They are not always uniform in size.  But, the transmission stamp should look the same as the engine.

Scott - can you post a pic of your transmissions partial VIN? The link below shows where its located...

Hi, unfortunately, the transmission is the only major part that was replaced. there is a M22 in it now, but when i bought the car, the seller told me that the transmission was replaced as a warranty replacement back in 1970, according to the people they bought it from.

The broadcast was not under the gas tank, i suspect the gas tank was replaced at one point as well, Daniel the person helping me with the restoration specifically went looking for the broadcast sheet when he removed the tank. He is pretty sure it is a replacement gas tank.

But all else looks right, the block has the double humps and correct casting, the intake manifold, carb is a DZ, exhaust manifolds, rear end, frame, dash board, etc

I bought this car from an attorney in San Francisco that repossessed it from a husband that didnt pay the bill for the divorce. After i purchased it and had it checked it out, the attorney let me talk to the wife and that is how i got the information i do have. The Attorney had the car checked out in San Francisco and had it confirmed that it was really a Z28. Honestly, i dont think it was all that reliable, you all are so knowledgeable and helpful.

I wish i knew more

Instead of ice cream, I'll introduce her to my 10 year old son.  He'll probably wind up with my 1968 Rally Sport Z/28, after all, he tells all his friends that it's his car now.

Thanx for the info Scott. Amazing what this poor Z has had to endour. Both at the factory and by the previous owners. Sounds like it finally found a good home. How about sharing some pics of what the car looked like before you began restoration?

ok, but dont be mad at me for the STUPID colors, when you say this car has had a rough life.......  the stripes are Ford Mustang Red.

I know, I know, but i didnt do it.

it is going back to Burnished Brown with White stripes as it started life. i wouldnt have chosen Brown, but i cant erase what the car is deep down

has anyone seen Burnished Brown in real life? is it awful ?

I never paid much attention to it until now. Sorry guys who have this color but God it looks  Tongue! On the plus side, how many folks actually ordered that color. And, there isn't a color on this planet that can make a Z look bad (although this one comes close). Now you have the complete package; a unique engine, transmission & paint  Wink.

the guy doing the restoration said he can lay down some gold primer under the brown and then play with the clear coat a little.


but Ive seen other brown GM cars from the era, and Im not sure if they were Burnished Brown, but I will stick to calling it Monkey Poop Brown
