You mention that the plate "Original owner apparently glued it down to one of the warranty documents" here and on your TC post. That was glued by GM and or the dealer when new. That's the way they all came. Just thought I would mention that in case you were thinking of detaching it.

General Discussion / Re: original paint 69 Z on ebay... "survivor"
« on: September 03, 2013, 05:17:31 AM »
it was on EBay a few weeks ago and if I remember right it ran its course and brought upper 30's. It showed sold but this is the same seller so I assume the deal didn't go through. I admired it and wished I had the room and extra $ to bid on it last time. It appears to be a nice original survivor.

Gary let me know if he won't take it back. My car is a 07A car and I found a very nice 9E jack and I might be willing to do some trading with you.

I've been wondering the same thing. My 07A X77D80 car as far as I know has never had the original engine out and it has many of the original parts still on it, alt, dist., carb, etc. and my AC fuel pump just recently went bad and I assumed it was the original and it is also a 40987. So would be very interested in any info as well.

Originality / Re: Correct Cowl Induction coil bracket question.
« on: March 27, 2013, 12:31:32 PM »
my 07A X77D80 car has the original paint still on the cowl induction hood and my DZ engine never been out of the car. My coil bracket is notched and looks like the above picture. I have been told it is also the same bracket used on 70 chevelle cowl induction hoods. Also the coil changes from flat hood Z's to a 270br for cowl hoods and 293 for flat hood cars

That makes sense to me also and what I was thinking especially since that is exactly how different engine dress up parts are dated on my car that i am 99.9% are original as the motor has never been out of the car. I have many that are a week or two ahead of the engine assembly but starter that is after and closer to the build date of the car. I also thank you all for the answers and the original question because I had been searching for the same info.

That confirms why my starter date is after the engine assembly but correct me if Im wrong but all the items listed that were put on after the engine and trans were mated and VIN stamped could be dated after the engine assembly but could also have been dated before the engine assembly also depending on stockpile etc. Right? Again my alternator, distributor and carb are dated a week or two ahead of engine assembly but the starter after. Also not many original parts missing on my car but of course the dreaded exhaust manifolds and smog so when searching I can now look for anything just ahead of my car build date or earlier after reading your report. Thanks!

The build date on my Z is July with a May28th DZ assembly on the pad that has never been out of the car. All the original parts such as alternator, distributor, carb are all dated earlier in May but the starter, M20 trans and BU rear are all dated late June. Therefore I assume the starter wasn't put on at the factory until after the trans and therefore could be dated after the engine assembly but before the car build date.
