Gentlemen, trust me.....it's not worth it.....
And the problem with that? His initial post was asking about exactly that....
my GTX is auto, no A/C, 22 in rad...... real deal and tag checks out 100%
26" in A/C and 4 sp cars, no?
The O/P's car is auto, it has 3.23 gears & no A/C or HD Cooling so a 22" radiator is standard..
and trailer towing pkg.
Gears & HD Cooling also trigger 26"
so its possible the tag is a fake......... in order to tie a satellite body to a GTX...... and someone screwed up the tag or......... the car is real, the tag was lost, and someone screwed up the replacement or.......the tag was screwed up at the plant....... but why no trace of yellow paint?
The RS in the VIN means GTX.... The 68 tags I've seen have an inspection stamp that isn't present on the tag in question.... I haven't seen enough 68 tags to say it's always present but the unpainted super straight tag does raise flags..
What would that inspection stamp look like?
mine looks to have a little "T" stamped on the very edge, but not punched through ....... I can post a pic tomorrow, phone is outside
You ask allot of questions but you don't seem to answer many....
And what wrong with searching the minds of the supposed know it all's. I might even learn something or is that what your afraid of?
Inspection stamps vary by plant and year. Each plant had their own way of doing things. A description of how the StL plant did something in 1968 won’t apply to what Hamtramck did in 1971. To learn inspection stamp nuances, you have to study tags from each plant for each year. (I’m compiling a detailed data base for 69 StL punches) Meaning, one way to help identify bad tags is knowing how each plant handled inspection stamps for that particular year.
Well it seems to me with a post like this.... It sure seems like you think you know something so lets hear it.... I've never claimed to know it all, but I've done this a long time & know a little... And I'm willing to share, trying to help & inform others....
I have been at this a long time also. Don't claim to know much but when something appears to look stupid questions need to be asked and not just assume a replaceable tag is correct. To many crooks in this hobby willing to make anything and everything for a buck.
No argument there... And it seems to be getting worse...
My 68 LA plant GTX has no inspection stamp but it had a small metal strip with 2 stamps punched in it. Someday it'll get that EE1 paint back on her. Someone shot her black in the 80's. Ugg.
Yeap and you are the one guy that DOES know those differences.... The tag is the issue.....
Because car was redone some time in its life. All numbers match the core and trunk lip numbers match the order number on fender tag and the last numers of vin match numbers on back of wngine block.
