Quite possibly there is no way for CRG to say one way or another if it is real or not, especially publicly, and risk the possibility of being wrong and then open to liable. Unless something very obvious stands out that leaves no doubts , right now it's only conjecture, opinions and guesses.

Even though you've stated the obvious I thought I was quite clear. This is my opinion and my opinion alone. And ("I don't need to know why")!

Let's say hypothetically a car was toast and the cowl area or more of the shell was salvagable. All that needs to be done is remove it at the factory seams and transfer to another solid GM donor shell. This type of thing is done in collision daily. So all you have to do is ask the owner to remove the front clip, strip the paint, and check under the brush applied seam sealer to inspect the welds and seams. Don't forget the rest of the stampings on the car. Think an owner is going to go for that? You have to prove a car was about to turn to powder, or hit a pole sideways and was brought back to life.

Scott – I consider you one of the authorities on anything First Gen and I respect you opinions. However, you have your reasons for agreeing with those modifications you speak of and I have mine for not agreeing with them. You can also come up with as many scenarios as you’d like for modifying the cowl area and this guy won’t have any of it. If I did then I may as well agree with complete re-bodies. If that’s your take and folks are okay with it then have at it.  I just wouldn’t want the headaches or issues that would follow cars with those modifications.

Marty, you missed the whole point I was making.  If what I suggested was done, not many prospective buyers would know. So they would not be buying the car they believed rolled off the assembly line. My post goes back to my sardonic remark about people higher in the food chain or power sellers never getting involved in anything deceitful, or associating with those that are. Incomplete truth: All GM Sheetmetal. That's right, cut two cars apart and make one. No lie there, but not all truth either.

Sorry Doug. I have always mix up the 67 & 68's. Don't know why, the wide rocker moldings of a 67 are a dead give away.

Doug, I love it!
In fact, we used to double date in a 67 just like that.
Brings back memories....

Did anyone read Dan Strohl's article on Hemming's Blog today? A Chevelle turned into an LS-6 resulted in a Felony arrest. And a fake serial number tag on a Corvette resulted in another.

It is a poster child for this thread.
