The ZL1 being a rebody doesn’t help it. I believe the 67 Yenko had a restamped block also.
One car I liked was an orange rs 69 Z that was one of the few rs cars with the correct wiper motor.  I saw rs cars with the standard motor.  Red flag to me.  The orange car had original interior and endura  bumper. 
I tried to buy the green 68 Z and for the condition the paint was in hated to bid anymore. It was called a survivor but had been painted probably in the 70s. When it was on you tube, there was no grille or inner fenders.  Jerry’s report noted he thought the fenders were changed and I am guessing it had hit something with the parts that had been changed. It had what looked like a poor metal prep job before the paint and I was afraid I would get it in our humidity and it would get worse and need a paint job. It was really nice underneath and had a nice original interior

I would hate to be the guy that spent 17,000 under the hood and see as many things wrong as I did

Who in the world would stamp a short pad block.  One thing about it, it could be the only one!

This also is a burnished brown LA Z that was on eBay a few years ago. The seller wanted an offer before you could have someone look at the car. It never got any bids and I have no idea what happened to it. The original engine was out of it and it had another engine in it so you got both. The pictures were terrible but it was a pretty neat car. I think it had an Endura bumper also

The seller posted the back side of the cowl stamp and looks like 2 sets of numbers

Kurt was it a whole car or shell? Maybe a shell explains the leaning look

My car is about a month behind this one.  The pictures I have of mine are when the factory glue  was smeared over the stamp and hard to compare.   It would be interesting to see the back of the cowl.  Was there a tag or body with the vin tag?   Block looks to be a restamp and the Chinese booster makes me wonder what else is wrong.  Oh the upside down air cleaner seal also

I like this color and options.  Looks like another vin under what’s stamped and it has a digit wrong
