G-r-e-a-t.... Sounds like the Barrett-Jackson crowd is jumping all over the Z10's.  Another car that the working guys can forget about picking up.  If these prices are real I'll be less likely to drive mine anywhere and leave it out of sight.

For what it is worth...I owned a 69 SS350 with Muncie that had a 318 block assembled on 5/17/69.  The body tag was 06A.  Bought the car in 1975, so there was little chance that someone tried to clone or re-stamp the engine.  VIN on oil filter boss matched the car.  Found it when cleaning/detailing the block prior to rebuild in 1977.  Car was sold shortly thereafter to provide funds for college.    Could have been that a few 300/350's were stashed at the plant and installed late?

  Thankfully someone DID recognized the significance of the building, although it was not saved entirely.  I only recalled the demolition crew uncerimoniously tearing it down into a pile of rubble.  Only thing left now is a concrete slab and some weeds emerging from the cracks. 
  BTW - Wasn't Werner the owner of a one-off GM Design exercise C1 at one time?

John: You may recall the sister facility about 1/4 mile north of the old V-8 plant was the birthplace of the early build '53 Corvettes.  It was demolished within the last several years as well.   Not even a brick was saved.  No plaque...nothing.   Sad....

Entirely possible for casting and assembly date to be the same.  Between the two of us, my father and I worked at Chevrolet Motor Division on Van Slyke and on Chevrolet Ave (Flint, Mi) in the 60's through the early 80's.   So we witnessed the operating tempo of these facilities during the height of Chevrolet success.  Raw engine blocks were trucked in from Saginaw Foundry around the clock in stake sided heavy duty six axle semi trailers.  Operations were running on 3 shifts, 7 days/week for months on end.  With that rate of volume, coincident cast/buld dates would not be a surprise...

Hey there:
Handle on the old forum was Z10Mike, and still Z10Mike.  Thanks for the heads-up...
