Like I said, it can be difficult to evaluate the stampings in this time period. Especially when all you have is a photo.

The car had a personal onsite inspection by an expert, and it was deemed ok.

You have to realize not every car was ordered by a customer. Some were just for stock on the lot. SS did not require a posi, and Z28s didnít either until into the 69 model year.

Muscle car terminology is subjective. Ask some old people.

Ask 10 gear heads and you will probably get at least 7 different answers.

Some say the first muscle car was the 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88.

Itís tough to pin things down to a particular car. A late 50s Corvette with a 283 and ďtwo foursĒ had plenty of muscle for the time. :)

My 1968 L78 did not have a posi originally and the 1967 L35 I will be restoring with my son didnít either. Both are posi now.

I would never call a First Gen Camaro a pony car. Thatís for that ďother carĒ thatís discussed in Ford forums. :)

I think the term Muscle Car started in the 50s.

Victor,

Engine assembly stamps were done at the engine assembly plant. Big blocks got their stamped assembly date and application code BEFORE the heads were installed.

Partial VIN was stamped later, at the vehicle assembly plant.

You can try messing with the idle speed, but may need a different torque converter.

Had a really wild 406 small block one time that was a bear to deal with when it had a stock converter, so an aftermarket converter was installed.

What converter is in the car now?

I had some thoughts on this but nothing solid. 

But I had a feeling that Ed would have answers for you.  :)

Thanks guys. I would like to know if any one can confirm the picture in the AIM is the way it was done for cars built later in 69.

Knowing the build month and week of your car might help - to compare with another car. Things changed more than once during the model year.
