How can I tell a real Z28??

I'm going to go look at a 78 Z28, how can I tell if it's a true Z and not an impostor?

The trim tag on a 78 and 79 should say Z/28. That is a start. Tach, rope looming 4 spoke steering wheel with z28 in the cap, rear seat bar, and a 350. Should have a rear spoiler.

Start with the vin. it better have a Q and an L in it.

Vehicle Identification Example: 1Q87U8N515127
First digit is GM Division: 1 = Chevrolet
Second digit is model: Q = Sport Coupe, Rally Sport, and Z28, S = Type LT
Digits 3 & 4 are body type: 87 = 2dr. coupe
Fifth digit is engine code: D = 250ci, L = 350ci, U = 305ci
Sixth digit is model year: 8 = 1978
Seventh digit is N for Norwood assembly, L for Van Nuys.

A Norwood tag should say z28 and an LA tag will have only an 8. Check the info on the link someone posted on your nastyz28 thread. Follow it to the Norwood tag page and then the LA tag page.
