68's are the hardest to verify
I see this quote all the time and always think the opposite.
With a 68 there is one less thing, i.e. trim tag, that needs to be verified.
All of the other parts and numbers that need to be verified on a 68 also need to be verified on a 69.
I mean you wouldn't buy a 69 just because it has the right X code on the trim tag would you? Those things are reproduced and original ones are sold on ebay and privately all the time.
I think too many people put too much emphasis solely on trim tag X codes that can mean a no, or maybe, but never a definite yes.
My point is, all years need a thorough checking regardless of trim tag.

I'm skeptical, but it's impossible to tell from the pics and description.

What up with that steering wheel?

I thought the deluxe steering wheel for 68 had chrome spokes and the standard spokes were black..

I don't like the trim tag, take a close look at it.
OK....I give up. What don't you like?

Here is the decode for the tag,

1 = Chevrolet
2 = Camaro
4 = 8-cylinder engine
37 = coupe body
8 = 1968 model year
L = Los Angeles, CA assembly plant (Van Nuys)
325808 = vehicle serial number sequence

Decode for body number: 025079

01C = Built the Third week of January.
68-12437 = Coupe.
LOS = Built in Van Nuys California.
712 = Standard Black Bucket Seats.
N-N = Car Color is Cordovan Maroon
X317 = internal plant scheduling code.

Aren't those 67 wheels pictured??? the wheel is a 68 but didn't all 68 Z's have the rear spoiler standard???
I thought they were 68.

The rear spoiler was optional on Z28's until 69.

What month did GM change the 302 to the Z28 fender emblem?
