my name is martin i visit the site several times a week i posted once about a 1 1/2 years ago. i bought a 1970 z28 about that time and determined that the drive train, suspension, and bumpers are from 1970z28. i was able to find a real survivor parts car (very rusty and do not think repairable) less engine and transmission. it has all the parts necessary to make a complete 1970 z28. between the two cars it would 100% complete. both cars were manufactured in same month and all parts correct #'s and dates. what or how do you classify the car. also the parts cars is a r/s with all parts avialale to make the conversion to the better package. (just mentioned this because of future plans for car). i would never want to miss represent the car. i am 51 years old and have had two 1970 z28's. the 1st one was r/s purchased in 1972,i was 2nd owner with factory warranty still remaining and other was in about 1985. i hope this is not to long winded, just offering a little back ground. thanks for reading, replies will be greatly valued. martin.

Martin, as long as the drivetrain remains with the original car, I don't see a problem calling it a restored numbers-matching car. Sheetmetal, interior parts, etc. (if needed) are all part of a restoration. With a restored car, numbers-matching refers to the drivetrain - motor, transmission, rearend. Not saying you can't date-code everything correctly - spark plug wires, hoses, etc., but it wouldn't be original, only restored.

The RS swap (if done correctly) would only increase the value.
