As late as the '90s, what remained of ZL-1 #5 was still around as a tube-frame race car. Original block was still with it. Maybe someone knows the car.

There is no/early late on Z/28 tires. Most had Goodyears, a few had the Firestone SC200. Far as I know, the only tires used with 15" wheels.

I know of a Yenko built March '69 with the SC200s.

Soon as someone posts the VIN we will know.

If it is the real McCoy they can begin negotiating with Jenkins family. Without the original paperwork it is just another old race car.

No. It was built as an L78. He swapped in a ZL1 engine from one of the production cars. Later I believe he switched to a 430" Can-Am block.
