Luttys Chevy Warehouse carries cowl tag rivets. I can not attest to the correctness and have not used them.
 What are the correct dies/stamps to be used when installing these rivets ?

 Yes, it is. and I am good with that. I was/am not not into cars for profit, so maybe affordability will return.
Times change, as the small block wiped out the flathead the LS is wiping out the small block. that's just the way it is.
 I'm not ever going to replace original motors but I see a LS (Orange with factory valve covers and air cleaner with a two plane manifold and a F.I. Tech fuel injection)
 in my engine bay in the future. The car now has a 72 truck block anyway, wrong is wrong.

       My two cents

Hi guys,
  So the August trim tagged Camaros (like 08E) were counted as September built cars?
    Not completed, or easier to count perhaps?

08E LA built with 749 interior and a smooth black ash tray.
I do not recall seen a original textured tray in a 68.

 Seems the 1969 Ford copied the 1967 Chevrolet.....

I have a copy of the "BILL THOMAS 396 performance handbook"

 A/C condenser ?

  Good luck,

 Hi guys,
 I will be installing All electrical pieces soon, I am looking for any heads up regarding situations I may encounter. It seems to be heads up installation and not anticipating too much trouble
 but will be happy to listen to any tips.
  The car is a early 1967 RS/SS-350 convertible  (I know, a bunch have popped up here lately) with power top, A/C, and electric windows. The dog house is not yet mounted as I plan to wire that
   while I  have unfettered access, nor is the dash pad installed. All the wiring accessories are from M&H.

    Thank you,

Good advice Pete,
  Upon further review I see I am interchanging the Two stamps.

 Seems more like stupid people TALKED about it but did not support it, Why blame the state, Most of the other states hosts NOTHING.
  Never ending weak little jabs at the GREATEST state in the Union, Sad.

Hi Guys,
 James,  Your story (reply 15) is the story I always heard also, Kurt clearly stated that the big blocks were stamped without the heads installed so, NOT complete and NOT in racks. are you stating that the motors were stamped twice or, the heads were installed on the assembly line? The dash pad VIN was created when the order was placed, the motor had to match the car VIN and all the ordered options
for that car. As I understand the orders were received at headquarters (Detroit?), The motor was built in Tonawanda, the car was assembled in either LA or Norwood, Three different, pre-numbered pieces from three different places had to meet at the same place at about the same time. I was wondering about the methods used. That's why I asked Kurt to expand on that point. If indeed the blocks were stamped at the factory (Tonawanda) they could not have been randomly pulled from a rack. Was Kurt referring only to pace cars? Maybe we will find out.

Hi BC,
Yes, that is clear
 I am not referring to any stamp, just the transferring and assigning processes of the BB motors.
