Hi BC,
Yes, that is clear
 I am not referring to any stamp, just the transferring and assigning processes of the BB motors.

 could you please expand on this point?
 What method was used to keep the Tonawanda stamped blocks properly applied to the correct  LA built car?
Would this indicate that big blocks motors were not pulled from bulk racks ?
Thus all BB cars body's and motor numbers should be in numeric order, Correct?

Hi Guys,
 I was born and raised in California, Please give me a state I can not pick apart and demean (Nothing special, anybody can do the same). I agree taxes are too much, Mostly due to California
supporting 45 historically Bankrupt other states! all while they give us the middle finger. California is the cleanest it's been in my life, and getting better. We all know luxury is not cheap, so why complain?
 Moving away hurts Nobody here! There are plenty of others willing to take their place that actually want to be here. And if they take a toxic spewing company with them all the better.

   My Two Cents

 Thank you. I was not sure if the odd stamping was correct for that production time period,
 and also wanted to make sure the casting dates lined up with the VIN. Aug 1966 correct?
  I may end up with this motor if the original car does not pop up. the motor was fully rebuilt and then
  never picked up from the rebuilder, liquidated when the shop closed down.

V0819MT, 3892657 H967 block

completely rebuilt, intake manifold to pan.
Note: The VIN is stamped upside down with a small "L",
is this normal?

 I have used a pressure steam cleaner to remove a repaint from a car. The poor repaint was also flaking off, but the clearly poor prep allowed the water to lift the paint off.
   It was free and took about an hour.

Can the same be said for later 68 #711 interior? the color term was changed from "Parchment" to "Ivory"  did the color also change? and did they have the black inserts?
 I saw late 68 convertible one this weekend and the owner swears its original, It did not have black inserts. for what it is worth he also stated the all vinyl interior was "comfort weave"

  In regards to reply #15, does this mean that the repo tag has been on this car for over thirty years?

 If you have them already mount them without the lower bolt, the rears do not have the extra support.  Don't scratch the paint!

   I agree, last time I was there WAS back in the day. But it is fairly close to you, that's why I was wondering. Have you tried the Long Beach swap meet? Smaller, but I find a lot of good parts there.
    I love the guys doing "restorations" with "all new parts" dumping original parts for everything that is reproduced.  I have heard the same venders will ask more for the same parts at Pomona
    because they can. Are you aware of the Big 3 swap meet in San Diego once a year?  large and diverse.
