1967 - Orphans / Re: 7L159826 Block

The lower part of the L is there, itís just weak. The stamping is heavier/deeper toward the top. Take a look at it with Microsoft photo editor and then see it with Auto Correct. Or use another photo editor and adjust the brightness/contrast/color. Thatís a viewing trick to see different levels of detail that is sometimes needed on less than perfect pics.

The L stamp was probably replaced not too long after this partial VIN was stamped.

There is quite a bit of variation in the LOS partial VIN stamping for late 1967.  The example shown appears to be legitimate and it is an upper case L.  Note the spacing.

Tag may have been swapped previous to the most recent resto.

Not sure but 2 degrees probably wonít make a difference.

I think 68-72 A bodies- Chevelle, Cutlass, GTO - might be the same. Might.

Yep, not available on Camaro. I have seen them taken off of Firebirds and used on Camaros.

Other than the wheels, its not a bad looking car. But I hate when cowl tags are swapped or when repro tags are put on to mislead people.

But in the pic you say showed the sanding disc also showed you already had damage to rear main bearing.

What pic?

@BC Miller, It's a 350, powerglide car.  75,000 miles, All numbers matching, 95% original paint.  White with red interior.  I have the POP, and other documentation, but no window sticker.  3rd owner.  Second owner bought it from the estate of a former North Island Coronado Naval Station Commander.  Best part, it's a twin to my 68 SS/RS.  Same color, four speed car.

Excellent!

Is there any way to identify a zone car?  I have a 67 SS/RS convertible.  I was talking with Scott Settlermire and he touught it might be a zone car because of some of the options, and build date (11/66).  A/C in a convertible, headrests, shoulder harness, power windows, fold down rear seat, AM/FM, tilt, deluxe interior.  11/66 build date.  There's some chalk marks around the trim tag that I've never seen on other cars.  It was sold new at Courtesy Chevrolet, San Diego.  Just a few blocks from the zone office

Tell me more - color combo? Engine?

Arias

Look at previous post. Right or wrong?


You get half a cookie! Yes, Arias 'continued' the cast version design from whom?

Restamps on both. In my opinion.
