Robin, Mr. Cook is asking about the VIN stamp on the same engine block pad with the DZ stamp.
You might have to move the alternator out of the way in getting a good definitive picture of the complete pad.

Not an expert here, but, TT looks good and matches with VIN numerically and date wise.
Nice ride and, I think, if Canadian registered, buyer might be able to get documentation from CA DMV of 'Born with' options, selling dealer, etc.
Valuable info .

Very good, Jeff.

Think of electrical current as a water hose.
Valve off (ign sw off), no flow of water (current), max pressure (voltage).
Open valve (ign sw on), water flows (current flows), pressure drops, (voltage drops).

Twelve volts  with ign sw on IGN, and if point set is open, or module not working/spinning, max volts and no current flow.
If points are closed, then current flows, as circuit is complete, then lower voltage.
It may be true with yours, but a previously owned '67, needed the yellow wire from R terminal on solenoid to coil + for start voltage.
My previously owned '68's had twelve volts from ign sw START position, but yellow wire was still installed and I left it this way.
Sixty-nine is probably the same.

With nine volts during cranking, either/both, the battery is low charged or too small, and/or battery cables too small of gauge, min of 1 AWG and wire brush posts and clamps and attachment points on block.
My suggestion is externally charge battery overnight. Next day, check voltage on disconnected yellow wire and disconnected cloth covered white wire during cranking. Remember, start motor is a high current device and expect a drop of battery voltage, but not lower than nine volts, typically.
"Need more power, Scotty" comes to mind.

If white wire is 12 volts during cranking, you could, not required to do so, do away with yellow wire, but I would leave it and use it.
When connecting new 8360 distributor, tie back white wire and run a new 12 AWG wire from IGN spade on fuse panel, as this action will leave OE white wire for 480 distributor when installed.

Don't think so - horseshoe shifter - and should have left it in the river it was pulled.

As Puress suggests, run a ground wire from radiator to ground as this action put radiator on the same voltage level/ground as the rest of the system.
Change coolant also and use deionized water.

Thanks, William. Mono-leaf perches on rear axle(67)? Look thin compared to multi-leaf perches.
I suggest this because I don't see pads about springs in perches.
Rear drum is not going to fit onto axle stub shown - aftermarket axles due to extra holes?
Rear white stripes too close to rear window?
Parking brake should be under pipes, not over them.
Should not spare tire match the ad and the other four tires?
Nice paint/reflection. I could be mistaken.

Best method is EOIC - Exhaust opening - adjust intake; Intake closing - adjust exhaust.
This method has the lifter on base corcle of lobe. Start with firing order and follow through.
You're welcome.

Nice find! at any rate.  Nice ride and I'd get it in a heartbeat.

Awesome story/thread and Thanks for the pictures.
I am surprised the exhaust pipe studs DID NOT break and OE nuts did not hang up.

Congrats, Austin, on your find.
New journey and I wish you the best of luck with her.

Yes, I see 3L is prevalent, steering wheel button and back-up lights below bumper.
Nice in seeing Montgomery Wards Body side molding.

Looks to be a 4P on Trim Tag, so SS?
