1967 - Orphans / Re: 7L102619 350 motor

 Thank you. I was not sure if the odd stamping was correct for that production time period,
 and also wanted to make sure the casting dates lined up with the VIN. Aug 1966 correct?
  I may end up with this motor if the original car does not pop up. the motor was fully rebuilt and then
  never picked up from the rebuilder, liquidated when the shop closed down.

V0819MT, 3892657 H967 block

completely rebuilt, intake manifold to pan.
Note: The VIN is stamped upside down with a small "L",
is this normal?

 I have used a pressure steam cleaner to remove a repaint from a car. The poor repaint was also flaking off, but the clearly poor prep allowed the water to lift the paint off.
   It was free and took about an hour.

Can the same be said for later 68 #711 interior? the color term was changed from "Parchment" to "Ivory"  did the color also change? and did they have the black inserts?
 I saw late 68 convertible one this weekend and the owner swears its original, It did not have black inserts. for what it is worth he also stated the all vinyl interior was "comfort weave"

  In regards to reply #15, does this mean that the repo tag has been on this car for over thirty years?

 If you have them already mount them without the lower bolt, the rears do not have the extra support.  Don't scratch the paint!

   I agree, last time I was there WAS back in the day. But it is fairly close to you, that's why I was wondering. Have you tried the Long Beach swap meet? Smaller, but I find a lot of good parts there.
    I love the guys doing "restorations" with "all new parts" dumping original parts for everything that is reproduced.  I have heard the same venders will ask more for the same parts at Pomona
    because they can. Are you aware of the Big 3 swap meet in San Diego once a year?  large and diverse.

Are you still in So. Cal. ? Pomona's monthly swap meet is coming up, do you ever go?

 Wow!! 7 to 15 hundred, NFW. I have seen many in the Los Angeles area swap meets 1 to 2 hundred for  a good one, much less for a drilled or bent edges one.
  Do people actually pay that? I know some people will ask that but I figured they just want something to take with them when they go.

Paint another deck lid to match, or a flat hood for that matter. a buddy and four bolts can change the look of your car in minutes.

 You did nothing wrong, I have been following your quest as I am going to be there soon myself. I would have asked for a supervisor or owner after the second rejection.
    I will not even consider giving them my business with that kind of " customer service. Sorry for your problems, thank you for your advice and sharing your experience.

I have a few license plate frames from that dealer. fairly common at the LA area swap meets for some reason.
