Welcome Andre'

  Does the partial engine VIN match the hidden VIN? Look below the windshield area under the cowl vent panel closely for the stamped hidden VIN.
What is the block casting date? Can you post pictues of the engine pad?

Mike

Now i can say, affirmed VIN and "hidden" VIN match :) (checked below the windshield area under the cowl vent panel) no photo possible.

Andre', I agree with Marty on both counts.  By any chance is the seller providing you with any original paperwork or the POP?

While the original question was about a 69, read Williams comments in the following thread:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9787.0

Unfortunately, no paperwork, POP or Buildsheet.

OK, thank you guys, semms there is no closer connection, function or rule between the build date an the transmission date, exept the transmission date has to bee bevor the build date period.

QUESTION to the experts.

Starting position:
Car build period was:
01 = January, 1967, the month car was built.
D = Fourth week of the month.
That means dates between: Monday 01-23-67 to Sunday 01-29-67 correct?

What date was exactly stamped on my original 67 transmission for my car?


  That date is when the build period started. Figure a few days afterwards it was completed providing it didn't get pulled to the side for anything out of the norm. I haven't looked at the Julian date calculator to see if your day dates are accurate. As an example of a 'period' my 67 has a 4B date on the trim tag and the UOIT shows a date of April 13th. Almost at the end of that period.
   But, don't get hung up on the tranny date stamp. The date stamped could have been several weeks before the car build date and sat in inventory before being used. The fact that it will not be the original tranny will not make any "P" date any more valuable unless you happen to find the real case with the VIN stamped in it. Most cars today do not have their original trannys so it will not impact the value of the car much at all if you plan on selling it later.
  Don't worry about the tranny and just enjoy the car while you have your health and some $$$$ in your pocket. Life is short!

Mike

Mike - Many thanks again for your commitment!
I know that it is almost impossible to find the original transmission. Like a win in the lottery.
That is why i am searching only for a "date correct" muncie M20, to replace the installed 69 Muncie with Hurst shifter.
But you are absolutly right with de $$$$ an the health ;-)
So, i am just collecting information about the transmission in this great forum to achieve a correct replacement at some point.

Andreí Ė You are correct about the $$$ but when it's all said and done I'm sure this '67 won't be cheap either. ;)

If you donít mind me asking; who verified the engine is original to the car? And, I cannot stress this enough; have the seller send you clear pics of the engine pad so you can post them on this thread. The pad should be as clear as, or close to as clear as, the one Iíve posted below, without paint.
  
I hope you donít think Iím meddling too much. I just donít want you to get burned.


here it is...

Hey guys, working this weekend and getting ready for a hurricane.  I'm sorry but I have never seen this
 car in Destin.   If you would like give me more information and I would be glad to check it for you.  The next few days maybe busy for me though. 

Thanks, the car is origin from Freeland MI and still not longer than 3 weeks in FL based.
My mate stores the car in his garage.

If you don't get it by the end of the week there might not be a car. Looks like Isaac is gonna make a visit about Wednesday.

It occurred to me after I post we have a member in Destin, I Fire Chief or Captian. I can't think of his user name but seems like a nice guy, I'm sure he would help if needed. And I am serious, if you need anything when youa re in Florida just hallow 850-508-7357.

At the least make sure you go to McGuire's Pub jsut over the bridge in Ft. Walton when you are in Florida.

I hope Isaac will miss FL. Don't care about the car, the people are more important.

No problem, you do not meddling me, it's very kind your care.

I am absolutly with you, it is very important to verify what you bought.
In this case i've trusted the seller, he owned the car for 13 years an wrote me in a mail the engine pad codes.
Not very clever i know, so don't denounce me.

So, i have no pic at the moment, but when i stay at destin, i will check de engine pad as my first task and will post a pic i this thread.

till then, keep one's fingers crossed for so, that the seller told the truth.
