New in AZ first question on a 69Z

Ok, Some women collect cars. Used to have some documented big buck midyear corvettes now have documented 68RS/SS 4 speed convertible I restored, all original drivetrain. Not for sale.

Now looking at a 69Z, my book (Macneish) is 67-68 so what is the significance of 6378 on block by oil canister? Getting ready to wipe out my retirement fund so tell me is this indicative of DZ block. I dont trust pad stamps.

Re: New in AZ first question on a 69Z

Is that a stamped number or a cast number. Either way I wouldn't expect it to be indicative of a DZ block. If it is a stamped number it could be part of the partial vin.

Pad stamps are good as gold, as long as they are AUTHENTIC. If you are serious about spending big bucks for the right car, have it inspected by Jerry McNeish. This will ensure that you are actually getting a real Z. He's also a member here. Search for [email protected]

I think shes referencing a 69Z for sale in another post, that claims the last 4 digits of VIN are stamped down by oil filter.

Dont wipe out your retirement fund unless the car has bullet proff documentation and or certified by Jerry M.

Diane, welcome to team camaro, its best to post actual questions in the proper sections here, since alot of folks dont frequent the 'welcome wagon'... Id suggest the TAG section for questions about letters and numbers. Jim..former owner of a 69RS-LM1 350/255 - 700r
