    my son purchased a daytona yellow 70-z-28 about 6mths ago for 3k then he gave it me for my 50th birthday . anyway im just wondering if its a real z . its got the 12 bolt posi with the coz code has the swaybars multileaf 8k tach 150 speedo 74k for mileage still has the orig. paint on it with black stripes has point ignition i have the orig. 780 holley its missing the corvette valve covers and the dual snorkel air breather the car runs and drives but needs quarters fenders door skins a floor pan it has black interior which needs to be redone. the stamp on the engine block says vo 707 ctc and has a smaller number stamped 7on577642. my tag under the hood says st7012487nor.there is a tr711 and 51-51 paint code and the vin number is 12487on577642 and also says z28.19 on the tag the trans is a turbo 400 with a black console. also i noticed that there is no oil press. gauge in the dash is this right. im hoping the numbers match on this car and what would the car be worth if i restored to stock any info would be great thx:bowtie:

    Can I be the 1st to say welcome? If not, welcome to the board. Also, I'm assuming when I say this but the board is mostly made up of men, like me. With that assumption being said, we like photos with little words instead of a lot words without PHOTOS.
    I would love to see your car. An easy way of posting them is by using Photobucket and a digital camera. These photos 10 years down the road can be used as a good reminder of where you came from. Good luck.

    Sounds like a great car! Congrats. Post some pictures!

    Now, what is the build date? That would be the three numbers on the lower left of the trim tag. Should read like "06B" or something like that.

    The motor looks like a July 1970 production. The VIN also supports a late model production that year.

    There should be the partial VIN stamped on the oil filter riser of the motor. Very hard to see, but if that area is cleaned and well illuminated, a digital camera set on macro should get a decent picture of it.

    Any documentation with it in the glove box?

    The restored value today of a numbers matching 70 Z28 would be between $28K to $50K, depending on the detail of the restoration.

    That's why you need to verify everything before you decide on a course of restoration.

    I can say that color will draw admirers like flies to poop at car shows! :D
