I asked Jerry M. specifically about DZs and head markings he has seen and he said

ďAny that I've seen are badly faded and a lot of the orange paint is gone from the head.Ē

The 10D norwood I restored a few years back... 302 on the side of the block upon tear down.

Thatís there so they know what rotating assembly to install. Markings done before paint. 

And I changed some of the wording in my first post above.

Right off hand, not sure on small blocks - but on 69 big blocks, there was an engine code sticker put on the valve cover for ID.

In general, those markings would be for engine plant assembly purposes, buried under paint. Sometimes paint was thin or burned off a bit and then may have shown through.

I canít say it never happened (marks on top of paint) as there are a few pics out there. Mostly seen on MO engines in 68. That might have been due to a different type of marker used or a slightly different engine paint mix or supplier, making it easier to show through. But it wasnít the norm as far as I know.

Assembly line ID of a DZ should have been pretty easy. Think about it. Small block, aluminum intake, special valve covers.

Do what you want people. I just stated I would never do it.

If I see that on any car, my thought is ďover-restoredĒ.  Those are generally under the paint.

I would never do that on any car I own.

Nice Steve, nice.  :)

The only car that ever beat my dadís old 68 Z28, was an AAR Cuda. Plum crazy purple, slicks. He lost by half a fender.  :(

I agree. Triple Blue is pretty rare.

Guessing old school 301.

I don't know any reason why Firebird and Camaro outside door handles would differ. I certainly have not noticed anything different.

Darrell - thank you for the comparison pics.

Yes we all owe a big thank you to the founding members. If you have never read the first few paragraphs at this link, it is worth your time. :)

It's a coupe, and seller is the car owner. So he isn't looking to reunite it with his car.
