The vin just indicates the engine.

77 Z's had painted bumpers and a sticker that became a hood scoop the following year. If the Camaro was sold new in Canada then Vehicle Vintage Services would have a record of it and be able to identify if it is a Z28.

Camaro Z/28 stopped at end of 74, no 75 or 76, then in 1977 it was reintroduced but it wasn't released until part way through the year, hence the 1977 1/2 terminology. 

Second letter "Q" was used to denote Z28 and Sport Coupe, fifth letter "L" denotes 350. 

Sales addendum below has visual clues spelled out.

Trim tag should say Z28 if present.

Thanks

First car I ever drove was a 77 Z. White with tan interior and a 4speed. It's what got me hooked. I was 14years old and it belonged to my next door neighbour.

Notice in the ad it states M21 4 speed when actually a ST-10 BW was used since no Muncie's were being produced after '74. A lot of so called "gear heads" think that when their build sheets states the 'M21" designation that it has that when in fact GM used that moniker for stating if the tranny was a close ratio and M20 for the wide ratio. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it.... And that car would have gotten a 2:43 gear ratio gear box or a 2:64 gear box. The earliest BW I've had was an early '75 F body-T/A gear box and all the way up to late '82 Z/28 which had a torque tube attachment mounts. It was an all aluminum 902 case.

Only if built at the Norwood plant. Van Nuys trim tags are harder to decipher and don't have any model designation stamped on them. Just a whole lot of numbers.......
