He's got a picture of a 69 chevelles vin tag that he has in another auction shown with the Z28.  Thats going to hurt his price as people will assume its got a swapped VIN on it.

It was restored over 6 years ago, so it wasn't him that sunk the reputed 56K into it.
Too bad they added style trim and who knows what else.....

Bellhousing was attached when the block was painted, but coverage varies from a light misting along the joint line to complete coverage, it all depended on who was handling the paint gun that day.

  As cool as it looks with a partial painting, I'd prefer a full coverage to avoid the oxidation that eventually forms on smooth aluminum surfaces.
As Mark pointed out, being it depends on the painter of the time (van Gogh vs. Joe the painter) that gives us restorers more flexibility.
