Good advice Pete,
  Upon further review I see I am interchanging the Two stamps.

 Seems more like stupid people TALKED about it but did not support it, Why blame the state, Most of the other states hosts NOTHING.
  Never ending weak little jabs at the GREATEST state in the Union, Sad.

Hi Guys,
 James,  Your story (reply 15) is the story I always heard also, Kurt clearly stated that the big blocks were stamped without the heads installed so, NOT complete and NOT in racks. are you stating that the motors were stamped twice or, the heads were installed on the assembly line? The dash pad VIN was created when the order was placed, the motor had to match the car VIN and all the ordered options
for that car. As I understand the orders were received at headquarters (Detroit?), The motor was built in Tonawanda, the car was assembled in either LA or Norwood, Three different, pre-numbered pieces from three different places had to meet at the same place at about the same time. I was wondering about the methods used. That's why I asked Kurt to expand on that point. If indeed the blocks were stamped at the factory (Tonawanda) they could not have been randomly pulled from a rack. Was Kurt referring only to pace cars? Maybe we will find out.

Hi BC,
Yes, that is clear
 I am not referring to any stamp, just the transferring and assigning processes of the BB motors.

 could you please expand on this point?
 What method was used to keep the Tonawanda stamped blocks properly applied to the correct  LA built car?
Would this indicate that big blocks motors were not pulled from bulk racks ?
Thus all BB cars body's and motor numbers should be in numeric order, Correct?

Hi Guys,
 I was born and raised in California, Please give me a state I can not pick apart and demean (Nothing special, anybody can do the same). I agree taxes are too much, Mostly due to California
supporting 45 historically Bankrupt other states! all while they give us the middle finger. California is the cleanest it's been in my life, and getting better. We all know luxury is not cheap, so why complain?
 Moving away hurts Nobody here! There are plenty of others willing to take their place that actually want to be here. And if they take a toxic spewing company with them all the better.

   My Two Cents

 Thank you. I was not sure if the odd stamping was correct for that production time period,
 and also wanted to make sure the casting dates lined up with the VIN. Aug 1966 correct?
  I may end up with this motor if the original car does not pop up. the motor was fully rebuilt and then
  never picked up from the rebuilder, liquidated when the shop closed down.

completely rebuilt, intake manifold to pan.
Note: The VIN is stamped upside down with a small "L",
is this normal?

 I have used a pressure steam cleaner to remove a repaint from a car. The poor repaint was also flaking off, but the clearly poor prep allowed the water to lift the paint off.
   It was free and took about an hour.

Can the same be said for later 68 #711 interior? the color term was changed from "Parchment" to "Ivory"  did the color also change? and did they have the black inserts?
 I saw late 68 convertible one this weekend and the owner swears its original, It did not have black inserts. for what it is worth he also stated the all vinyl interior was "comfort weave"
