    Most people never even notice the length, they are the shorter replacement handles GM and vendors sold, the guy who skinned the doors probably never even noticed they were shorter or just didn't care. 64vette is that your trim tag? That tag and rivets are sending up red flags and are good reason to start looking further. Like the VIN tag rivets, hidden VIN, and the engine and trans stamps.

    My trim tag is real and original with car , the guy that posted the fake one is obviously a fraud , I posted my Canadian build sheet , that is Certified from GM Canada. All of my cars the real deal .

    Well that's good to hear, that looks like a nice car you have there and that trim tag has obviously been tampered with. I would love to see some underhood pictures of your car. I would be nice to see some pictures of the red L78 also. curious to see if it is my old one, Now that car was a roach, someone before me put a 400 turbo in the car but it ran like a raped ape. Make sure you register the car and if the red one is real that one also. Thanks....

    1970 outer door handles are 1 year only. I believe 1971-up are shorter.

    The picture of the L78 cowl tag in post #247 is a fake, the characters are to crisp.
    Here's mine for comparison...

    Hey Mark, is that the car you picked up in the Midwest, in your avatar? Did you change the color? I thought it was gold??
