Wheres this lost 1969 Z28 ? I have the dz302

LOST 1969 Z28 Hello im new to the site but a camaro fan and owner for years. I have a DZ 302 that was pulled from a car in central Illinois years back. my goal is to find this car and get the motor and car back together. car and motor were seperated back in 1989 - 1993 . in the jacksonville , Illinois area i have the vin from the block ,also have the casting date and the Dz code. Ive owned this motor for close to 20 years and should have looked for the car years ago. Is this car still alive and around ? any info would be great . Thanks Team Camaro.

Kind of hard to narrow it down without the VIN.

Its gonna help to give the full VIN. I can tell its a Norwood built car.

So the partial Vin is 9N533226 or 9N543226. November 68 built Norwood z/28. Got any pics of the pad stamping? Whats the casting on the back of the block?

Assuming the car is still out there, that will make someone very happy being a pre x code car.

Brad,
I believe the X codes started around mid December of '68. Your block is too early for that.
Hope you can reunite the DZ with the original Z.....

The car's not in the database, but I would recommend posting the numbers on the CRG site anyway. You never know...

There will not be any codes on the trim tag. The x codes started the second week of December (12B). Prior to that date there was nothing on the trim tag to decode a 69 Camaro.

Re: Wheres this lost 1969 Z28 ? I have the dz302

I just looked through my papers but couldnt find anything with a VIN for my old 69 Z/28. It was a Nov. 68 built X77 car, of course no X code on the cowl but it did have the X7 on the rear seat bulk head.

The first owner swapped the engine with a friend due to his being modded before it was traded in at a local dealer. It had only 34k original miles when I owned it. I know this because I found a reciept in the glove box dated 1970 with a signature and I tracked down the owner of the signature and got the story as well as original photos of the car. That car went to Texas when I sold it.

Good luck with your search.

Brad, with the high volume of fakes and forgeries, it's worth your time to authenticate the stampings via photos thru some of the experts here to protect/enhance your investment. I personally know of fakes being made even in the 83-89 time frame. Best of luck on your hunt.
