The Window sticker is fake... it has F70x 14 2 ply white stripe tires and ralley wheels listed. If the booklet isn't the correct 68 style I bet it is fake as well.

The rear stripes are WAY too close together besides being on the decklid edge...

The block and car are reunited after at least 35 years. The short block has not been apart ever, other than a couple of bearing caps and the oil pan and timing chain. The block was removed from the car when the bearing spun, and just stored all these years-never once in another car, never rebuilt, nothing. Standard bore, original pistons, original rods, original crank. Just sat all these years, waiting for today to come.

Thanks to Ed, Matt and the power of the Internet.

Thanks for posting that, Scott. It certainly seems like it could be the same car.

Regarding the tires, my first car (back in the '70s) was a '69 Z and it also had Delta 60 Trans-Am tires on it. My brother's first car was a '68 Z, also with the same tires.

Thanks a bunch for doing that, Steve!
Mike, really nice details on those wheels. Terrific craftmanship. Thanks for posting the photos of your work. One of these days I will not be surprised to find you have completely cast a metal wheel and machined the necessary surfaces to perfection.

Steve, the spinner on Kolb's car looks very similar to the ones on the Ansen wheels. Even the spokes themselves on Kolb's car look like the Ansens. Thanks for posting those neat photos. I do recall seeing a set of those a long time ago but I had completely forgotten about them.

I have an M20 that does not seem to have any VIN stampings on it anywhere. Could this have been a factory replacement transmission?

Also, I have what was always told to me as a 1968 Z28. The original block is gone but from the parts that I do still have (heads, carb, intake, distributor, connecting rods, and pistons) they all seem to be specific to the 302. When I look for a block to rebuild the engine should I look for an MO stamped block (one currently on CL for $1k) or just go with a non MO stamped block?
