    Hello,

    I am looking for an original dipstick for a 70 Z28. i thought i had the original one with a green tip but it looks like its been swapped out sometime in the past.

    Thanks

    Might want to research, but there were two dipsticks available. One was round with a green tip and the other was hook shaped and don’t think it was color tipped. Mine is original and the latter and is a Norwood car

    Here are the two styles for a '70 Z/28 per our former 'expert' M21RSZ28 who unfortunately no longer participates here at Nasty. I take this to mean the flat tip was used on the assembly line only (as stated), while the round green tip was used on the assembly line as well, but must have also been available as the parts counter replacement part.

    The one I have is the green tip dipstick, the wording is the same with an additional letter "M" about 1" further up the stick. My car is 1st week April Van Nuys NA9 build. I guess i need to stand down on search. One lees part i need to find.

    Thanks Guys and Merry Christmas
