Official spec sheet from Chevrolet for homologation in Europe

I'm searching for an official spec sheet from Chevrolet for my Z/28.

Here in Europe we have COC documents for all in Europe homologated cars.
Certificate Of Conformity

With the COC document it's very simple to get a homologation to drive the car legal on the roads.

Do you in the US have similar official documents from Chevrolet ?

When the car is new the dealer gets a Certificate of Origin from GM that they file with local Department of Motor Vehicles when the car is first registered. But customers rarely would get one - I did as I bought out of state and dealer did not want to title it in my home state, so they sent me Certificate of Origin with the car and I used that to get it registered.

Also note if it specifically states "THIS VEHICLE HAS A 50 STATE VEHICLE EMISSION SYSTEM" - that is how you know it is Calif. Smog legal, not that you care in Germany.

Those would be on file for every car in the first State it was registered - trick is to figure out how to get a copy from the State your car was first registered?

I did not need this for registration in the UK.

I only needed the vehicle Title document. And then certain modifications had to be made:

- rear brake lights separated from rear indicators.
- rear indicators changed from red to amber.
- side indicators repositioned to front wings.
- front side light added.
- rear fog light added.
- rear wickerbill removed (for certification test only - then refitted)
- noise baffles added to exhaust (for certification test only - then removed)
- UK number plates

Then I was good to go.

Hi Pat,

you can be so glad not to have the TÜV in the UK

German: Technischer Überwachungs Verein
English: Technical Control Association

In Germany we have to bring our car every two years to the TüV for a technicacl check.
When the car has passed the check you'll get a badge on your number plates for the next two years.

With the lights is just the same here except we're not allowed to have side markers.

I wish we had these checks every 2 years here in the USA, especially in S.Cal where I live - first time the did that half the cars on the road would fail the TUV check you go through - now that would improve traffic!

For safety aspects I've got for 100% the same opinion.

But it's annoying when you're debating with them to get modifications homologated

Contact at GM/Chevrolet

Does anybody know an official contact at GM/Chevrolet for technical support ?


I'm trying to get an official confirmation by GM/Chevrolet
that the emissions of the 2015 Z/28 are not worse
than the EU homologated 2013 Corvette C6 Z06.

Both have the LS7 engine and the MM6 gearbox.

Based on such an official confirmation the German authority
is willing to carry over the emission values of the EU homologated C6 Z06.

This will simplify homolagation significant.

Shouldn’t this be an easy operation as there already seems to be a number of roadlegal z/28’s in Germany?

Should be but isn't

I've contacted a few databases who are selling the required documents.
Till now without success.

I'm aware of 4 other Z/28 in Germany.
Two red ones on the road and two white ones at the dealer.

On of them was offered as a small accident with only a few scratches
on the left side. I've found the car on carfax as a total loss.
So the scratches have been a little bit deeper...

You can give the task of homologation to a dealer for 2000€ upwards.
This would be the worst case.
I'm trying to manage everything by myself.
4 month time therefore while hibernation...
