Those aren't castings, those are forgings. Very different process.

> When something is cast, the material is heated above its melting temperature and poured into a mold where it solidifies.
> When something is forged it is physically forced into a shape (in a die) while remaining in a solid state although it is frequently heated.

The pad has been restamped. I'll guess that the engine was rebuilt and the block decked. The numbers were added back because they were needed for the registration.
I wonder if this is the original block for this car (#2056) or if this was from #1575.
Nice to still have the original dealer sticker. That paint looks really nice, too bad the front sheetmetal is missing.

Restoration / Re: 1969 Cowl Hood Spring

Just like my original hood springs, they allow the hood to fall and slam shut.
My car still has the factory hood springs with the original cowl hood. No issues.
I think your hinges may be worn out....

I think it also doesn't like oil, it will shorten its working life.

Thanks!
Are there any tags still on the suitcase or the AC compressor?

It's like the part # for an engine assembly, it's not on the part.
Assuming it is the correct configuration, the date is the only thing that ties it to a car.

This was not a festival car. Those cars were used in the parade, etc.
This car was an official car, used by the USAC who helped put on the race.

I kinda doubt that's the original engine. Axle has been replaced.

The tag and the VIN match, but the enginepad doesn't match others and looks modified.

Your car was one of the later 67 Camaros made at Antwerp. It was imported to Sweden in 1976.
What else can you tell us about your car?
