Originality / Re: A Brace of Z10's on eBay

Yes, both are in the database.
124379N637277 is probably NOM. The engine was 4-5 months ahead of the car w/ no VIN, now it matches....
124379N639396 - $99K for a L48?  What's that thing mounted on the subframe (last picture in the auction)?

Huh? So you would run nylon toothed timing gears??

The recall was the largest ever in the auto industry and they cut corners to reduce the implementation cost. 
Interlocking was a design change that I believe was implemented in 69 (the other divisions already had interlocking). So that is a vintage design. And if you broke a mount in 69, that's what you'd get. The recall was 1972.
Airbags are kinda newer technology, not sure what you point is......

Your choices are:
run a poor design that all the other divisions chose not to use
run a poor design with a ugly bandaid so when it breaks, it doesn't bind up the throttle linkage (which is why they went to cable linkage in 70)
run a better design that noone can see anyway

The recall was a cheap & ugly band-aid. They didn't want to replace all those mounts, too much money.
The interlocking mounts are superior design and the only thing I'd run in a car. Would you run a nylon tooth timing gear just to be original, even though they fail??

You need to hook up an accurate gauge to see what it is actually running.
And the factory gauge is not....

I think the POP is a repro too. But those are really hard to tell.
Nice car, but trans, tag, WS are not original. Hey, the axle stamp is!

Pretty sure the letters on the pistons is for sizing.

If it was easy to do, they would have converted to staggered shocks mid-67.....

WS is original.

The distributor was added at the vehicle assembly plant. The engine date is not a factor. 'Correct' component date codes were messed up because Chevy likely had left-over 499 inventory [and others] at other plants shipped to Norwood for the extended 1969 Camaro production run. 1969 Camaro production ended at Norwood the first week of November, 1969.
That's incorrect. The distributor was part of the engine assembly as shipped.

Can you measure the heights and widths of the PBT stamps? I think the repros are too big, IIRC.

There's a google search box on the homepage (bottom right). More than handy. :)
