I knew there were issues with this car, I could smell it through the computer screen. That's to bad..................Sorry guys that I  got the link paste wrong but at least you could figure out the ebay number.
What do you do with a car like this,? except not buy it.  If you check out the carb pic the carb is not dated!
Just another small but overlooked detail!

Which is scarier...Hendrick's getting screwed, or Hendrick's trying to dump it off on someone else?

Neither one.  I know from his restoration people that Rick knows what's what.

Hmmm...did you read Kurt's posts on this link? I think we're talking about the same car. If not...my bad.

I do not wish to stir the pot but Henridkcs crew missed it on this one! Any one that can read a book about trim tags on 1969 Z/28 Camaros knows this tag is wrong and never existed...... to my knowledge!
How's that for CYA and double speak,  just like a politician!

I'd be willing to bet Hendrick don't know this guy is using his name to sell this car. I've met the man and toured his NASCAR shop. This is not his style.

I would like to believe this car is being sold w/o his knowledge although highly unlikely. And, can you explain why the link to Hendrick Performance is the same on both the eBay ad and Hendrick's home page (look at the seller on the eBay ad)?

Obviously I've ruffled a few feathers. Not my intention at all. In fact, I'll keep my thoughts to myself. ;)  Only this one time! ;D

I did an on-site inspection certification on this car 6-18-09, my certification # is 0597.  The whole car was a fake.  POS, POS........... 

The owner at that time bought it from a dealer in FL who was marketing it on consignment.  It actually came out of the T. Abrams collection (Reliable Carriers) according to the data and research I came up with.  I suspect that Abrams found out the car was bad and unloaded it.  I think the owner in NJ was able to get his money back on the sale.  Not sure as I can't remember.  Too many fraud cases that I've dealt with over the past three to four years.

PART OF MY FINAL SUMMARY:  I CAN'T POST THE WHOLE REPORT THOUGH.

Numberís matching drive train:  The complete drive train (engine, transmission and rear axle) has been altered and restamped with new numbers.  The trim identification tag on the firewall is a fake reproduction making it nearly impossible to evaluate what model Camaro this vehicle was when it left the assembly plant in January, 1969.  The drive train stampings were verified as restamps through use of my Camaro Hi-Performance data base which has thousands of original drive train stampings.  None of the drive train stampings on this vehicle match any of the original stampings in my CHP data base.  It should also be noted on page two of this report that many reproduction parts were used to restore this Camaro. 

There, now you have the rest of the story.

Jerry

Nope, not mine!
But Michael is calling this one right.  And now, Jerry has explained a lot of it.  Somebody in the sales side of the Perfomance group missed this big time, and according to what Jerry said, not for the first time on this car.  Yes, somebody messed up --again.  But the Performance crowd is only one part of Hendrick's Motorsports... which is only part of all that Rick Hendrick oversees every day.  Like Daniel I have met the man, he is a straight arrow.  I have also met his restoration guys for his provate collection and have seen their work up close and personal.  Have know one of them personally for years.  Again, good people! If you ever get the chance to see his private collection, go see it.

Nope didn't get that far. Just the NASCAR shop where they were working on Gordan's cars.
