I'm sure the occasional wrong part got installed, but it seems like a lot of it these days is people trying to convince themselves they have something they do not using the assembly line error argument.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the carb would have been installed at the assembly plant, Norwood? So date wise, it's not directly correlated to the engine build date. Could be before or after, I think? But obviously before the car's assembly date.

Should be 68 builds, and would not have an X code on the tag. The only info which can be deduced from the tags are engine, (V8) , paint color, top color, and interior style/color. What are the VINs?

I was under the impression that it was needed for the assembly line for operations occurring before the trim tag was even installed.

I know 20,302 seems like a lot of cars, but back when they were new, you didn't see Z's too frequently. Yes, they were around, but there seemed to see a lot more SS's, and especially the SS Chevelles. They seemed to be everywhere. At least those are my 50 year memories.

Have you removed the interior panel by the quarter windows and checked the quarter from the inside for original holes that may have been filled? I know you stated there was no evidence of any. Is that looking from the outside? Just an idea.

I didn't know that they disclosed the reserve?

My friend purchased the same car from the original owner in 1976. Butternut yellow with black top, 350 SS, with SS hubcaps. Except his was an automatic on the column with a bench seat. Was destroyed shortly thereafter by a drunk who broadsided it. It must have been an early car, because I distinctly remember the SS 350 gas cap. I think that gas cap was superceded when the big block SS came out.

Here's my original for comparison

Yes, I know what you mean. At 900 it sounds like it's going to stall. Increasing by a couple hundred rpm make sit sound much smoother.

I'm idling at 900 rpm. Increasing the idle rpm will increase vacuum as well.

Looking at the article, I see an oil fill tube in the intake? Like pre-69. Maybe added to make it easier to add the oil?

The sign is in Columbus?  Where?
