Never seen a black one. You mean black painted? They usually are not bright brass as they tarnish pretty quick.What a GREAT car...
FWIW the fuel block in the photo should be black not brass.
I’m doing a full rotisserie restoration on it and retuning it back to stock colors. Too nice of car not to! Not too many numbers matching 70 z28 project cars around any more so got really, really lucky!We want more photos... IT appears to be CODE 25 ASTRO BLUE and perhaps is ORIGINAL PAINT, if so it would be best to try and preserve the original paint. Astro is a very rare color for 70... most blue cars were Mulsanne.
If it is as original as stated it probably should be preserved.
Interesting. Thank you. Do the lines also have some form of black coating? They appear darker than bare steel.
Are the blocks for sure brass? Wondering if a black anodized aluminum wasn’t an allowed alternative material. Less expensive than brass.
You can see where the black is wearing off of COPO's block on the edges. Maybe is black zinc. Here is another Yenko that has a black block:
Still interesting that Charley's old car is bare brass.
