Let me correct or make a little clearer my statement from earlier.  I do not believe all of the stamp to be original.  Which in turn with the other aspects of the pad condition makes me question the whole pad.

Just curious do you have the p-o-p for the car?  What was the cars build date?  Also get the casting date on the block.

I am not gonna explain why I think its a restamp.  I will let one of the more experienced members make the final call.  Just my personal opinion.

That pad looks to have been decked.  You can see the line of material removal just under the head.  Plus the stamp is not original either.

Cant comment on block pic but trans looks legit.  The possible scenario I can think of makes this a legitimate possibility.

Also you are better off posting on nastyz28.com forums as they are 2nd gen specific.  If that is the car in the photos it looks nice and good luck with the search.

Yes it will work.  Their tech should know that.  Now I can not tell you if it will have the correct script on the bowl but functionally it'll be fine.

If the trunk floor has been replaced or jack hook holddown had to be reinstalled make sure they installed it in the correct location for a convertible and not a coupe.  IIRC Firebirds came with the space saver (I hope I'm remembering correctly) and their holddowns were in the coupe position.

Its been painted red for a while now before my buddy purchased the car.  Needs floors, trunk, quarters etc etc.  It needs a complete restoration and has a lot of correct parts missing.  Great car if done correctly.

Then do the math and it'll usually get you close.  He's not gonna have a report to look at.
