Oh, and the more I look at that car, the more I like it.  I think Lemans Blue is my favorite color. 

And as far as finding correctly dated parts for what has been changed.  Sure, go ahead and do that if you want.  But the car is awesome the way it is, and putting the original stuff back won't make it run any faster.  ENJOY!

Yes, that is it.  I removed the extra image and the blank attachment.  Does it look like there is a C before the BU ?  Can you very carefully wipe that area off with some lacquer thinner. 

Do you know the casting date on the center section?  I will look something like this attached image.

And we have a thread going at this link on casting date, casting number and stamped information on axle housings.  If you want you can post your axle data there.;all

Unfortunately due to the engine and trans swap somewhere along the way makes me think previous owners may have tried to add an emblem on the drivers side. After examining the pass. fender closer it doesn't appear to have been messed with and there are NO lower holes. So that would indicate 230 L6 correct?

As for the 12  6 on the VIN, I had no idea that it denoted a delivery date. And does it mean sold to a customer on 12/6? Or could this car have been ordered by a dealer and left on display? Thus the long time between build and delivery or is the 12 6 showing when the dealer received it? Just want to be clear.

I agree it was probably a 230 engine car.  That may be part of the reason why it did not sell fast, or the dealer demo idea could be just as valid.  

And that is the latest date I have personally seen for a DD stamped date.  Not sure when they quit doing that.

From the pics I saw, there was no way for me to read the cowl tag.  Are there more pics somewhere else?

Several things have been changed under the hood.


The pics you sent to my email were too small to use.  Can you send larger files to my email please?

Yes, at the top of this page.

I posted the link to the page because it took me a while to find it too.

Casting number you posted is correct for 302/327/350 in 1967. 

Is there anything more than V0518HY stamped on the front pad of the block?  And you are sure the letters are H and Y  ?

Post a pic if you can.

Originality / Re: 69 Z28 Crankshaft number
« on: April 18, 2015, 05:18:46 PM »
Dad and I had a DZ 302 that was from a dirt track sprint car.  Crankshaft thrust was worn when we got it.  It was OK for a while with new bearings and was generally only run 1/4 mile at a time after that after we put it in a 67 Camaro drag car around 1978 or 79.  

We would swap the 302 in and out with an L78.  Both ran similar times by the way with an M21, 4.88 gears and slicks.  Eventually the thrust on the crank got so worn that it needed to be welded up and repaired.  Rather than doing that we dumped it - and ran only the L78 in the car after that. 

Several years later the car got a 406 small block and was sold.  Should have kept that car. We made side exit exhaust for it from 3 inch tubing.

Im shocked you didnt vote for a BB 68..!!..   ;D

That other car was my second choice.  I just looked them over and went with what I thought looked best.  Lots of competition there.  Good luck to everyone.

That car is actually close enough to me where I might go inspect it.

Doing the paint all correct and minor body work won't be cheap for most people, but I could do some of it and get the rest done professionally for a reasonable price.

I looked but I don't see a pic of the POP.  Does someone have it that could send it to me?
