So here is my crayon X2/3 ? almost nearly covered by the heathen who tried to mask the rust in that area with thick undercoating. Car has been living its life as a big block car, of which everything else checks out. 4 leaf spring, 12 bolt(more on this in the next episode). Hidden vins match. It has A/c , no muncie hole and looks like originally an auto(more in another episode), so it cant be a Z thus not a 3. Power windows, rear defrost, console, spoiler car(one smaller trunk lid torsion bar)

Could the guy on the line have made a mistake when getting used to the X codes? Looks like at the bottom, he tried to under score/straight line it and make the bottom of the 2 ?

The second picture is another I saw somewhere, which is a 2 that looks like it nearly became a 3. Maybe this can be filed under the liquid lunch possibility? Poor penmanship?

I guess I need someone who has seen a lot of these.... any opinions are appreciated, thanks

4 leaf springs was a Z/28 only deal, but none of them had A/C, so that rules X3 out.

I believe ss cars could have 4 leaf springs with no regularity, based on options. If I only had a broadcast sheet.....lol For the record the car has the proportioning valve as well.

There are numerous 4 leafed original SS's.
I take it the rear tail pan was originally black?
IF it wasn't I could see the number being read as a 3, the 2 indicated BB with style trim, so black tail pan and black rockers, although 51 wasn't supposed to have the rockers blacked out, many Dusk blue cars did.

I would have to look this weekend to make sure but I am pretty sure my L78 SS Auto has 4 leaf springs.
