Sometimes they are so faint it helps to take a flashlight and hold it at an angle to where it ought to be and then you can see it.

I have seen the head flange like that but not a square 4-bolt collector flange on a Kustom header. Makes me think they were changed.

Very cool car, Jim.  I hope it's still out there and you can find it.  Do you recall if you got your license plate from the dealership or did it come from your local DMV office?

Van Nuys and Norwood only stamped the partial VINs, the other part was stamped at Flint Engine and that is definitely not a match to other known original V0402MO stamps.

Your efforts to dig up this (and other) info and post it here are appreciated, Scott.  Thank you!

I no longer have an original front bracket, just the rear. The part above the slot is too fat (tall?) on your part.

I have seen the Flint #1 sticker on the front of the passenger side valve cover on '67s. I don't recall seeing it on a '68, but maybe others have.

That looks like an original GM bracket but not for a '67-'68 Z. I think it was used on some later 409 engines and possibly something else like a '65 396. Both have the GT stamps but the 409 one is thicker above the adjusting slot and the Z bracket is thinner up there and more equal to the thickness below the slot.

Some cool stuff there. Thank you for posting!

I'm with 1109.  An aluminum rod would indicate a drag racing intent rather than road racing, in my opinion.

Thanks for the info.  It's never too late to add to one of the threads here.

Last I knew they were in the $10k to $15K range. Could be slightly less or more depending on how complete the set-up is, dates of components, etc.

Thanks for posting these, Scott.  That first photo of the Grand Prix movie float is just incredible.  I love it.

That had not been posted previously so thank you for doing that now, Mike.

Looks like a miserable weekend.

Nice to see someone post those on youtube and thank you for linking them here.
