    Those look really nice! You probably could triple your price.

    they are 73, I believe 72-73 are the same and 70-71 are the same.

    I realize this is an old thread, however, I am wondering about the absolute statement that Van Nuys cars did not have iron oxide (red) primer on the bottom of the floor pan. In 1971 I purchased a 1970 Z28. It did have the iron oxide primer underneath and was a Van Nuys car. It was an early production car but I don’t remember how early. Perhaps the body was sent to Van Nuys from Norwood and the car assembled there?

    I can't speak for 70-74
    but I have a Van Nuys 75 and it was red oxide. I recently stripped it and can verify it was the original coating.

    Here is a pic of my 07B Van Nuys built '70 Z28 and i believe that this is the original finish and it doesn't appear to be black, but red oxide.

    Hugger Orange, you can see a little of it around the gas tank filler neck.
