I actually might believe it is an L89 car. But the affidavits never say what drivetrain survived. Add Mark Young to the mix and the car becomes questionable.
Axle might be real.....
Car was for sale before.

Ypsilanti. :)
I lived in Ypsi for years and still live next door. I generally go, but I won't be able to attend this year.

Not sure why you wouldn't include the complete VIN. I presume this is 12437KC100126?

As an aside, I just saw a tag for a 70 Caracas Camaro - correctly using the K date. :)

I finally took the time and fixed the pics. Easy to regenerate the small pics from the bigger pics.

Big blocks were stamped before the head was installed.....

The oil has a unique green color...
When PA crude comes out of the ground, the color can vary from water clear to dark brown. They must be adding a dye to it.

Huh? Differences between what?

It isn't obvious to me why the 4 spacers were needed.
The spacers were removed for 69 production.

Originality / Re: Smog Pump Spacer Usage

I have some original bolts, I try to find and measure them...

Or is there a better way? Related question, the original alternator being only 37A, could the internals be upgraded to say 55A output?
What problem are you trying to fix? More output for what reason? There are very low electrical loads in an original car.
What matters more than a number is when it's generating that output (the shape of the output curve). 55A at 15000 alternator rpm means nothing (how long do you spin your engine that fast?), 15 amps at 2000 alt rpms (about idle) is meaningful.
Idle is a worst-case condition. Very little alternator output. Electric cooling fans are huge draws. On new cars, the alternator can't keep up at idle - the battery is dead after 2 hours of idling.
Also, having the alternator cut-in (turn on) at a lower rpm will not affect its output.

I took my alternator to the local shop. I didn't let him blast the case (oh, he wanted to), but he popped in new diodes and bearings and it's good.

I think the VIN is in their website's pics.
