Recreation

Im confused about what a recreation means... is it completely started from scratch and not genuine in any way? That means it wouldnt appreciate like a restored car right?

Heres the reference I'm looking at

It means it is not a real ss car. Which makes it worth less than a #'s mathcing ss.

Is it worth the same as an SS without matching #s?

I guess if boils down to what someone will pay for it is what it is worth. I would think a true ss with a non matching motor or trans. would still be worth more. The problem with the recreation is it will never have as high of a resale then the real deal. That also has an up side. If you are not a car collector and are just looking for a great car to drive then you can get the same for less money. It may not be a true ss but it will perform,look,and drive just like it was a ss. With the muscle car price booming like crazy you really can not go wrong either way. As long as the price of the cars are going up they will all increase in value (even the ones that need total restoration).

What he said. It may be a "true" SS car, but it is not an ORIGINAL SS car. Meaning either the trans, engine and rear end are not the ORIGINAL equipment that came with the car when it was originally built in '69.
Hope that clears things up for ya.

So any car without the original trans and engine is a recreation?

Well it depends. It's all in the build. If you know for the fact that this car you are looking at doesn't have the original(numbers matching) engine, then I would say it's a recreation.
An all original NUMBERS MATCHING car will run you some SERIOUS cash.
