It's almost like one is upside down

Congrats Danny! Looks like a great project. Couldn't have come at a better time!  Best of luck with it. The POP looks to be a replacement as the name and address of the owner is stamped in tin and not dymol tape. I am very happy for you. My wife is great, but she has never bought me a car! She is a keeper.

There aren't that many of us out there Eddie. Unfortunately, I wasn't much help either. Two down.
Good luck with your search.

Also jimmy, the backing plate should be square. Yours is on a diagonal. It will actually line up with the bars of the grille. It is just off a smidge. When you move it, you will step back and say "that's it!"

The 'location' of the stamps wrt the head are a bit different than I'm used to seeing..  Perhaps JohnZ, William, or Kurt can comment on the gang stamp and if they can get this close to the head with the head installed??   Usually the stamps are more near the front edge of the deck than these...

Getting the casting dates, and all other info would be helpful in making an originality determination...
I thought the same thing Gary.

Use something to neutralize the rust and just spray it with chrome spray paint to protect it.

My car has power steering as well. I took it out when I bought the car in 1978. I was 22 at the time. Sometime after I turned 50, I was cleaning out my mothers house and found a very heavy box upstairs in the garage. In the box was my complete power steering setup. Once you turn 50, power steering looks a lot better! I will put together the story of my original block and start a new thread. It's a long read!

Just crawled under my car, and the trans stamp matches the stamp on this car. The 6 in my partial is the same as the three 6's in this cars partial. The original block from my car is at my engine builder( another long story) so I can't compare the partial by my oil filter. The partial on my trans is in the same spot on the trans as this car and was assembled the same day. I wish mine was an m-22 like this one! I would have to say the trans stamp is legit.

Just read the report, and they do show the stampings, which look good to me(no expert of course) but I would invite the experts to examine the trim tag rivets. Maybe it's just the picture but they don't look right.

Very nice car. It is less than 800 cars before mine was built. All the date codes line up with mine. My transmission was built the same day as this one. Overall, a really nice car. It doesn't show any block, trans or rear end stampings, but I am sure it is in Jerry's report. I really like it.
