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.
