Just for fun, I looked at all v8 engines for 69 (207,148) vs the number of V8 cars built (coupe + vert)=(206,837).  So there were 311 more v8 engines counted by RPO, then were built.  I did not count the COPOs. :)  I am so confused now.

Almost all of those #'s are from GM. Some don't make sense. I can't fix that.
There's an extra 602 engines in 67 - did they miscount the Z's?

That's easy. L89 is not an engine option, it's a head option. 311 built.

Now we are seeing good data!    Please show Nor. or Van.  with body production  and hood week.    Now lets keep the data coming!
The original hood on my 04A Van Nuys car is stamped '13'; although not requested in this thread, the quarters and trunk lid are stamped '12' and the roof reinforcement on the driver's side is '7'. Haven't checked the fenders or doors yet, where would the stamp likely be on those?

Knock the 311 L89's off, because they are a subset of the L78's, ie you had to order an L78 to add the L89 heads.  The L48 was included as the "base" SS option package, so 22349 of those Z27 were base SS's.  Removing the 311 L89s leaves a total of 35998 SS engines, to go into 34932 "SS's", or a difference of 1066 extra engines, or a typo in one or more of the totals.

 I have questioned the cowl hood ever since owning this car, so went to get a number or not tonight. Came up with a 34 stamp under layers of paint. 10E  X77 car.  Would like opinions as to whether this is a 34 since the first digit is hard to read clearly.  I have another question about the 302 emblems, but didn't want to hijack the thread for anything else.

I looked at the picture before I read your post and immediately thought it looked like 34. That would have it made in mid August.

I don't think we had such a 'running' list, Austin...  we are all waiting for you to tally up the summary from the individual posts made in this thread.. :)

I made an incorrect statement early in this thread that Kurt had such a tally, but I think I was thinking about the gas tank tally he has, so that was an incorrect statement on my part;  no reason you can't do the tally from the information posted in this thread though.. :)

When I started this conversation , I had a hunch ,that cars with factory cowl hoods stayed with their original bodies. This seams to be the case, just like most original gas tanks. This is a good indicator of a time line ,when the body (Fisher) met up with the front sheet metal (Chevy). I think it would be a good idea to collect this data, just like the gas tanks.  Let's see some more data, specially some early cars!
