Car was restored in 98 and was in CA in 2000 for $27K. Not sure it's changed much since then....

The description mention AM radio and style trim - it has neither.

Axle is cast F189, built 06 2?. Looks correct.
Don't know about that trans stamp.

About half of the restored cars I see have the cowl seal on (what appears to be upside down)...  Or at least formed incorrectly.  It is possible I think to mount it incorrectly, but I think it takes some effort to form the seal correctly when you install a new one.   I recall back in the seventies, I purchased a new seal from Chevy, then I used strips of masking tape to keep the seal 'turned' out' the right way, until I got the hood down on it and let it sit like that for a few days..  then it was OK and has been OK since..  :)

Norwood June cars are O6A for all weeks.  Found this out when I was researching mine on this site and Team Camaro.

Clearly a fake Z/28.  It is very nice though, but not for $59K!  Worth about $15 or less with that fake tag.
