Doh!!

I really feel bad for guys that get taken like this.  What a shame.
It is easy for the more knowledgable guys to say he should have done his due diligence and had an expert look over the car... but, most of us are somewhat trusting by nature until we have a reason to suspect someone is selling us a counterfeit.  I doubt Dave had any reason to believe he should investigate the tag being swapped out.  Most regular guys are shocked to find out it goes on all the time.

Thanks for your response.  when I bought this (Z?) from a  restoration shop I really thought that I was buying from the experts.

  If you bought that from a dealer/restoration shop I would pursue a refund. They represented the car as a Z28 so they are liable for the accuracy of the car. And It's a pretty safe bet that they changed the tag to increase the value of the car.

Sometimes you get lucky on these deals, and it is a slam dunk proving "whodunnit", other times it is virtually impossible to tell who swapped the tag, and when.

Here is hoping Dave can get some satisfaction.  Remember, just because the tag was swapped, doesn't mean the car did not start life as a Z.

Kind of like, just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean they are NOT out to get you.

X77-69z28

Are you saying that on the engine block down by the oil filter there should be stamped a VIN number that should match the VIN of the body?

The Body VIN should be stamped by the Oil Filter and on the pass side of the trans case... Both stampings should exhibit the same characteristics.... example... if the letter N had an abnormal upright etc in the block stamp, the trans stamp should exhibit the same abnormality.

dave, i hope you are lucky enough that the car just had its color changed. did you get any pics with the car of the restoration? check some of the easy stuff first. the left frear frame rail bracket for dual exhaust, see if you can get the numbers off of the engine perches as they are z-28 specific, 3/8 single fuel line, four leaf rear springs, etc
good luck
