That's a horrible VIN restamp on the DZ block.  By the spacing and character alignment,  looks like each character was stamp individually instead of using a gang stamp.  Like others have said, probably done by a machine shop.

I am pretty sure the heater hose sizes are 1" 1/16, and 1 3/16. Yes you are correct they were dated by quarter. ex 1/68, 2/68/ 3/68, by WITTEK. The originals still seem superior to reproductions. The repo ones, can bend and tilt the tower pretty easily.

Bill Mock is a good source, he had a couple clamps for me a while back. I am not sure on 68 clamps what he has though.

Interesting that the trim rings and center caps are on the car.

The sedan delivery (pic 033) for me!
Looks pretty complete and in good condition - a lot of those others, while cool cars/trucks, might be hard to find body and trim parts for.

Looks pretty complete, and seems like it would take the least to make a driver out of it, and if you decided to sell I think it would be one of the easier ones to sell.

one thing Im not looking forward to, is drilling out the spots in the trunk gasket lip, why cant they simply make that part of the quarters and other pieces?

I see AMD makes the pieces, whats the big top one? Looks odd...

Thanks, Mike.

Bad Bascom was a really neat car. A fuel-injected 327 Corvette engine and independent rear suspension in a Chevy II road racer.
Here's a short article on it from the same issue of Car & Driver magazine.  412 horsepower and 2130 lbs. How much fun could
you have with that?  Grin    (Jon Mello Collection)

Jon, you always come up with the coolest stuff ! there was also "Bad Bascom" a Chevy 11 with Corvette engine & rear suspension. that was quite neat. Thomas also built some Fastback Novas for drag racing. he really was quite prolific, in many fields.

November 1963 Car & Driver article I posted previously but worth putting into a devoted Bill Thomas thread. My folks had
a '63 Corvair when I was a kid, but unfortunately Bill Thomas had not worked his magic on it.  (Jon Mello Collection)
