Hey, folks! New member, just got my '77 home last weekend!!! I had a '77 Z28, black w/buckskin interior, 4spd posi car back in high school. Bent it up racing in the hilltowns I grew up in. Started looking for a decent driver '77 Z28 a bit ago, and just picked one up.....maybe??? It's been repainted, and a 10-footer in terms of paint quality. But in rechecking some VIN/tag info, I'm coming up with some conflicting info. It's a Van Nyes built car. Being a '77, and a CA build, not everything is as clear as the Norwood cars. Namely, some of the body tag info indicates that all Van Nyes built Zcars had an 8 (while Norwood actually stamped them Z28). However, mine has two dashes "- -" in the location. Body color, interior color vinyl, etc., are correct. It has the 350/auto, but engine code may not be matching. If it's a Z28 "clone", they went through a lot to get there!! Black HL and markers, Z wheels (with 3 of four of them even having the raised stamped Z28 cap, although the paint is worn off), Z28 gauge cluster surround and horn cap, stripes, black bumpers, black front/rear window trim, etc. I haven't crawled around, yet, looking at front sway bar size, spacers, rear end (it's not a posi, but that was an option), etc. Back seats have LT covers, but prior owner included Z-car proper matching black covers. Anyone prove/disprove that the "8" on the body tag is ALWAYS present on Van Nyes built Z28's???
