I would definitely suggest keeping the gold car with it's original block and transmission, in favor of the non-matching numbers car.....
Welcome to CRG,  Likewise on the gold.  Will be a real beauty with the white interior.   Nice find !!

Your going in the right direction.  Ebay always leans towards the buyer..sadly cause at times the buyers are just as at fault.  Not saying you're at fault Kelley, just noting that ebay seems to always side with the buyer.  So it's in your favor.  Ebay staff can also see your message history between the two of you as well as the item status (shipped and received).   It's easy for them to add it all up at the end.

Good luck and keep us posted of the outcome please. 

Yes ebay has come a long way..some good and lots bad.

My concern is pouring money into a car that isn't original. Right now I could easily get my money back.
Well,  I think you kinda just answered your own question.  Sell and get your money back and shop for one that's as close to original as possible.

..and welcome to CRG :)

Welcome to CRG and congrats.  Looks very nice. 

Would you be so kind to elaborate a little on your resto?  Like...How long have you owned, any history, time its taken to complete or near complete, pics before or during (can't get enough pics) :)

Yes Len we made it thanks.  Lost power for 7 days but thankfully we have a 15000w portable generac gen which powered the entire house ac and most other.  Just a pain in the rump for the Mrs to refuel daily as it sucked 30 gals a day.   She had to operate while I was on duty.  Was stuck at the firehouse Sat thru Monday mng as she rode thru.  This was the final, in 3 weeks we're having generac bury a 500 gal propane tank with a stationary unit.

I was just in the keys (islamorada) yesterday.. what devastion.

I'm sure you were sweating it also. :(

This may be the worse ad written.  Is it me  ??? or is the seller speaking in another language ?

Haven't heard that term in a while, but he's referring to the rear window panel (between the window and deck lid).  Where it originated from ? ... good question  ::)

What mod's were done ? Cage,  tubbed, dash or trans tunnel cut up, interior gone?  Lots of unknowns for even a gues-stimation.

The first 2 pics are from my 69 bird, original untouched and the last 2 pics from my Camaro, also original.  I absolutely saw no difference in the exterior handles at all.  I put them side-by-side and used calipers to measured every possible point.

I'm not sure what exactly has been written or read in any reports,  but I can say that the exterior handles are spot on identical.
