That is not how they were shipped with the car. The five wheels were mounted at the same time and all were painted the same.

No. The mold looks like an egg carton with rows of these cavities. Each cavity is numbered. When each mold is filled, all cavities are filled.  If it's 12 cavity mold, 12 parts made at once.  They had to make them for all the plants - that's a lot.

2 different markings. Both done by the engine plant.

- Side of the block, upside down to know what parts to load. Was painted over.

- End of head, broadcast code to help ID the block without looking at the pad. Used by both the engine and vehicle plants. I see them more in 67/8, but that's may be because the alternator is in the way in 69 or due the use of stickers.

Yup. My point (and John's) is normal is a very small range, mostly less than 10 or 12.
Your point is true - one of those oddballs could be the VIN that was recorded. Something for sure happened to the late NOR 68 recorded VIN's - those numbers are way off.

Early big block Vettes with autos got powerglides. Trans doesn't make or break the class, IMO. Choices were limited.

And I still don't understand what changed to crash the forum. Something with the host presumably....

However, cars were not final-assembled in VIN order. The next car through roll-test could have an earlier VIN; on occasion several hundred units earlier.
This change in order occurred in the Body Bank. IMO, it's unlikely that VIN's were out of order by that much, because they were always pulling from all 6 lines in the bank.

I doubt it's a date, probably a mold number.

More than that. That's when it was initially scheduled - it could have been built a day or two off.

The engine and trans stamps look original. Someone just added the hokey VIN stamps....

With that date and 2 fuel lines, it is an SS.

X11 does not equal SS350.
1 or 2 fuel lines?
What's the stamping on the axle? Tag pic?
