    Z49 covers anything that makes the car specific to Canadian Standards, ie compliance label, speedo, labeling on gauges, warranty and owners manual books, licence plate provisions. No official list exists anywhere that I have been able to find.

    Good morning Mark!! Just received my GM documentation listing the options that came with my 81 Zed 28.. The speedo D1C: on the list shows as gear, speedo driven 3987921.. E5Z is adapter, Speedo (delete) and lastly, E9Z Key, Speedo Delete. Any idea what the heck these things are or mean??
    Another question is - YT9 Fisher Assembly Division Installed ? ?
    For the "working" cowl induction hood, was this an OPTion with the Z28, or was it standard if you ordered the Z. I see on my list under the Z289 Special Performance Package: * hood scoop and decal * specific paint and striping treatment. .
    Thanks!

    Hi gentlemen!! Looks like your car came from a dealer in East Angus Quebec. Looked it up on Google and a population count of over 3300 in 2006.. Did not find my build sheet unfortunately so I contancted GM Oshawa for the documentation. Mine is an 81 Z28 that was delivered to a dealer in a Montreal suburb of St Laurent.. I don't see you having a C41 option i.e. Heater with defroster outside air.. Not too sure what the heck that is..
    If you are interested Mad Michael, I could send you what I jest received yesterday from Oshawa via Email and the similarities are interesting between the two cars ..
    Take care and thanks for the valuable info.. Will make copies and keep on file for future perusal(s), eh..

    For some reason they don't say "Z", I went to New Zealand once and this girl said zed, I was like, huh? She explained and which point I asked do you add letters to other letters in the alphabet to pronounce them? Silly foreigners.
