I was told the clock looks original but it is not because it has quartz movement. did this car come with L82 on the hood? any help would be appreciated.
Best ask such questions on the NCRS site, not here. You might wake up the guy with the blue car, he's overdue for another misguided rant.
If the previous owner didn't provide the actual judging sheets with details of the deductions, you're out of luck. There are no other copies.
A 96 point car would look 'perfect' to the casual observer. The deductions might have been for insignificant minor points including condition of parts that have lost their factory finish, some parts that are service replacements or some operational issues like you've found with the clock.
Since you're a member, have the car re-judged. Then you'll hear first handed what the judges think.
BTW- the certificate in your pic appears to be blank. If so, how do you know it belongs to your car?
