You cant tell by the cowl tag for 1968 to document a Z-28. Car must have a 302 engine, front disc brakes. Check in the glove box door for a sticker that says it has 15 inch wheels. Hopefully no one tampered with that decal.

If it's a "numbers matching" car, that's a pretty fair price....depending on condition. I've seen original '68 Z/28 RS cars easily go for mid-50's.

Was told it was a local NC car . I havent been back to dealer since . I try to get all my tracking info on my Shelby on line . Not as easy as it was on my Camaro . I hate waiting but the "Track Your Order" was kind of fun .

As weird as it may seem, his comment is spot on. That decal is unique to the Z and impossible to repro and look old and original to the car. If you have that, and MO coded engine, oil filler tube style intake and at least two DF coded wheels left on the front..........then you can pretty much figure it's factory real. From there you continue to see what's missing or not right.

Another rarely mentioned thing is the tall rear bumper guards and the requisite mounting holes in the rear valance panel. Some say this was an option, but I personally have never seen a 68 or 69 Z without them...and they were rarely ordered on anything else.
