Sort of. Was on a lawn in Kuna, Idaho with a FOR SALE sign circa 1987. Was a bracket car at Firebird Raceway where it raced against another Cortez Silver ZL1, #13.

Known history back to the day it rolled off the assembly line, March 4, 1969.

Fine job on the ZL1. Was that car found in someones yard?

My posts may not have been very clear. Kurt made it a little more clear, but MAYBE I can make it crystal clear.

This car, with the L65, normally would have received a 10 bolt axle.

It actually received a 12 bolt with 3.31 ratio as a substitution, probably because either
A.  The car was ordered with the 3.36 axle and that ratio was not available at time of assembly.
B.  The car was ordered with a 3.36 axle AND a posi, but a 3.36 posi was not available at time of assembly.

B is more likely in my opinion, but A is possible.

Axle substitutions were not common, but they did happen.  I had a buddy in high school who had a gold 1967 Camaro with a 250 six cylinder/manual 3 speed/12 bolt with 2.73 and a posi. Normally that car would have received a 10 bolt, but it got a 12.

This was painted in lacquer 30 years ago by a friend in a 2-car garage. He also did the body work. All GM back then; no repro.

Yep, a dedicated hobbyist can do awesome work too, if they know what to do.

Well, "maybe". That flywheel was used for 11" AND 12" clutches, so it depends on how it's drilled. If it's drilled for the 11" clutch, it'll work. If it's drilled for the 11" OR the 12" clutch, it'll work. If it's ONLY drilled for the 12" clutch, then no, it won't work with the stock 11" clutch, but it WILL work with your 12" clutch. (That is, IF you can get everything to fit inside the bell housing!!)

Thanks, Ed. I looked into the LUK clutches, and they are actually a little less expensive than Valeo.

I have a flywheel with casting number 3789733, do you know if it would work for me?

Sure seems unusual to have anomalies in two different tag fields.

The Dynapak NU1909 is a 12" clutch, so you're right, it won't fit. You need a 10 spline 11" clutch and there are several manufacturers that will work. I've never heard of Valeo, so I can't say if it's any good or not. I highly recommend LUK clutches, but that's just my opinion.
