    Proper documentation is the ONLY way to validate a true Z28 equipped car. Everything else is readily available to accurately clone one...even the trim tag. However one with proper documentation is $$$$$

    I enjoy my plane Jane cheap version model. It will out perform any factory 70-71 Z28 by a long shot and I will be cool with my AC blowing.

    I have a interesting mis stamping on my camaro. The last 6 digits are correct matching the vin. But for the year made, it has a 9 instead of a 0.

    I would send it back to them and tell them to do it over, for the 300 bucks these places want for these , they should do it correct, or tell you that they put a little number on it ,to let everyone know it's a repop
