Tag looks real. Supposed to have a medium green standard interior [721] which appears to have been changed to black. 59 E is frost green with parchment vinyl roof. No one is looking for those colors.

Block appears to have been decked with a chain saw and re-stamped.

I would have had the trim tag and engine pad stamp opposite from William, but William trumps me because I still don't have a clue. The deck does look like it has had something horrible done to it. I don't know but if the pad stamp' WAS' good it looks like the casting dates and the block casting number is good for 07A doesn't it? VIN on the block doesn't looked tampored with and match's the dash VIN.

Block looks like it was under a glacier and had the sanding affect from the boulders go at it.

I agree with Bill. Tag is good, pad is restamped.
