Default 1969 COPO Chevelle

Want to thank everyone for the help on the rear axle # issue. Now, the
question is , how does a person go about authenticating the partial VIN
stamped into the block? It looks rite to me, but I understand there are
some good re stamps out there . Dave

---- Someone here will take a look at it by PM or E-mail if you don't want to share that with everybody just yet. And,,, someone on the sight may have already authenticated the stamping. Hang on and you will probably be able to pick and chose!.......Bill S

Dave,

So my 2 cents worth........

It looks like someone took the time and effort to turn the rear axle into something MUCH more desirable and costly than it really is. RED FLAG!

For me that is a turn off because there are shenanigans going on with this car, not knowing who modified the rear axle tube. Patience is a virtue in this hobby (easier said than done).

Put the word out what you are looking for and approximate budget and there is a good chance some of the folks around here who are very savvy and well connected will provide you with some options.

The car should speak for itself as to its provenance/authenticity.

Good luck!

I agree , there is a red flag here with the rear axle, does make a person
wonder if there is something else wrong with the car. Thanks for the input
you guys. BTW, if this deal does not go thru, I will be looking for another 4 SPD
COPO Chevelle. My budget, probably more than my wife wants me to spend,
LOL. I will pay a reasonable price for a COPO with its original drive train.
Does not have to be a concourse resto, I plan on driving it . Dave

If you are considering that car at 169000,what would you consider "reasonable" for one with oem drivetrain?

Oh, I don't know, I thought this one was a reasonable buy at 169,900.00,
if it was all original as advertised. I would have negotiated, never pay asking
price to a dealer ya know. But then again , I may be way off. I guess I
will have to ask around.
