Just discovering this tread. I am the current owner of this block. Noting just incase the car owner is searching for it. Thanks!

How can you determine if the tag is original or not? The date code on the tag matches the VIN.

1969 X-22 SS396 - It does not have the original motor/drive train in it. Are there any clues I can look for to determine what type of 396 it came with?

I am it the process of getting a records request from OH DMV - hopefully i can track down the original owners and see if they have any original documentation etc.

It does have the following:
- X-22 on cowl tag - build date matches the VIN code sequence
- Big Block heater
- Proportioning valve on sub frame
- Original fuel take with single fuel line sending unit

More data: Norwood 1969 X-22; 02D; tank stamp 29 69

Gas tank matches the build date of my car.  This could be the clue I have been searching for! The sending unit has single 3/8 fuel line. I believe only the L78 ran that fuel line. So if that is the original tank and sending unit - would it be to far fetched to think my car had an L78 in it from the factory?

Currently writing letters to the previous owners as well as records request from OH to get more history.

Incredible forum - just discovered it this past weekend. Learned so much just in the past couple days of reading...

Anyone have experience with Ohio DMV? Do they keep records past 10 years? I found there records request form - I will give that a shot.  I wrote letters to the address's on the title - one was returned undeliverable and I didn't hear anything from the other.

thanks william - i did a little more reading on this site - looks like the X-22 was with the Z21 trim options. And all RS cars are included in the Z21 x-code group. That's where I was getting confused.

Did all X-22 cars come with the Z22 Rally Sport option?
