 I thought that I would post this here in case some one has this car. Always nice to get them back where they belong!  I know the guy who owns it and he will sell it, hopefully not before we find the car.

Casting number...3970010
Casting Date.......I-15-9
Assembly Date....V0917DZ
Partial Vin...........19N691916

The tag looks out of place on the firewall... it looks newer. looks as though it was changed after the car was "restored"

 That trim tag sure looks like its been off the car to me. The car looks like it was painted then the firewall all with the tag off.  Then the tag reinstalled or installed and then painted black. You can see the overspray around the top of the tag where they didn't mask it off good.

The biggest problem I see is its an 04A with a 4K tag.   With the first L78's coming out at the end of March (03C?) until near the end of April the L78's would have been tagged with a 4N.  After 04C or so they began to use 4K for L78's.   So I'm thinking for this to be a good tag it would have to be a 4N, and NOT a 4K....   Perhaps this car was an exception??? 

 I hate to disagree, but there are as far as I know no L78's with a 4N code.  The first few had a 4P code before going to 4K

Am i thinking correctly on this.   Would the cowl tag number of 103345 mean that it is roughly the 3345 car in line starting from 100001 as the first car?   

 No, your not.  As stated above with Kurt and Mark the cowl tag did not start with 100001, that was the vin. Im sure this is where you are confused.

I have a 06A Z28 with the factory cowl hood option and docs to prove it. I have the original hood and will be looking for this number on mine tomorrow. The problem with my original hood, is previous owner installed hood pins. Would you guys try and have this fixed to keep the original hood, or buy another GM hood? Thanks!

 I just returned from looking at my hood and cant believe it!, I have a 20 stamped in mine as well.  Thats is so cool!! I will be trying to find a way to repair it.

fix it!

 Thanks for the reply Kevin.  I was concerned about repairing it due to heat warping it.  They did not do the neatest job when drilling the holes either. It looks like when they first drilled they were about a half of a hole off and then had to enlarge the hole, this was all covered by the hood pin chrome ring of course. The inner structure is a little messed up as well. I am going to drive out to where my car is stored and  look for this run number on the hood, I know its a little thing but I'm kinda excited to see if its there.  God bless!   Travis
