It is a mass produced car and a V6 RS Camaro is the majority of the V6s, ya a future buyer might take notice of the VIN lacking the RS notation but if they are THAT concerned then they will be smart enough to notice that the car has all the RS goodies anyways.
Besides that every time I have sold a car the buyer was only concerned normally with what is in the car, they don't care if I bought it with a certain package that was offered at the time of purchase, they just want to know what all I have in it, I know this because I have an 04 Monte Carlo SS supercharger and it is a Dale Jr Signature series. I have had it priced many times and the signature series (even though it is reflected on the VIN) doesn't , make a difference at all when it comes to price, the potential buyer is basically glad to hear that it has a supercharger and all the bells and whistles, they dont care if it is a signature series.
So if you were to buy a car, going into the sale you believed it was a particular trim level. Then, through research you realize that it isn't. Are you still going to buy the vehicle, or move on to a seller with more integrity?

I don't believe in badging cars incorrectly, that's all. Seems pretentious.

If I were to drop an LSA in my SS and change up some fascia, could I slap some ZL1 badges on the thing and call it even?
