In 78 I bought a two tone blue Caprice. It came in with a bad scratch on the door. The dealer shop tried to match it a couple times. They finally took a door off another car on the lot. I never saw any docs for it.

Thanks for the latest photos....best yet showing lots of detail; the shadowing, that the "Hilton" is a sticker, door meatball sizing, etc.
Unfortunately, we missed the cut-out for the header emblems, as it was a new piece without holes, and the stencil set had no cutout, although it did in the rear. We may add the nose emblems later. Dang!

no responses should give you the answer your looking for.If you know any of the other cars no responses should give you the answer your looking for.Too much PC in that world.

Definitely a different crowd over there. Good cars seem to change hands privately. Other member cars are not really criticized. Comments on cars for sale are like: that's a real beauty, GLWS, and would love to have it. About the most critical thing you can post there would be "shouldn't a solid lifter car have a 6K redline?" and you can't even post comments or questions in the classifieds without being a paid member.

Kurt, there are two repops. One is a "replacement" for less than $20, and the other is supposedly "correct" for around $35 (Both shown HERE).

Of course, if you're rich and stupid (which I happen to know you're neither), you can buy THIS OLD BEAT UP ONE from Heartbeat City for a grand! (Or save $75 by getting it off his WEB SITE!)

I see no issues with the engine stamping and the date lines up well with the car production (mid to late Feb), but the axle stamp date (early march)  is too late for the car (from the factory).
Thatís essentially why I posted.  By everything Iíve learned in the last 34 years of messing with 1st gens that rearend is too late to have been on the car when it left Van Nuys.  But it boggles the mind to think that someone randomly found a 3.73 posi with a date that close to the cars build date to stuff in this car.  No one tried that hard nor got that lucky with the tranny.  Even if restamped, as suggested above, the cast date is amazingly close.  FWIW, The car is well worn and shows no signs of an abandoned restoration. 

I know that defects during production could send a car off to the side For correction but it seems unlikely it would sit for two weeks or so waiting for a rear end.

Which brings me back to my original questions about what could have happened in the factory (John??) or warranty parts. 

As always, not trying to make it something itís not just trying to understand what it is.

On my 69 Z, I originally thought it had the original 892 water pump. Turned out it had been replaced. (probably around 1978) Replacement pump was same part no. 892, but cast date was I 23 8, and engine assembly was 0912DZ. So totally at random it was only a few weeks late from being perfectly in line with the original engine build.

The exterior dimensions of a non ac BB & SB interior side of the heater box is identical. The same goes for the outer, as well. The inner box is the same, save except the outer vertical heater core panel. It is moved to the right 1/4 inch making the heater core area dimension wider. If time allows, I will get a measurement of both, bbc & sbc/6, inner box widths.
