Are these numbers good .. 69 Z ?
« on: June 23, 2014, 02:31:35 AM »
Hey guys, me again  ;D   Still searching for a real deal Z and ran across this one.  An Oct 68 build "10D" Hugger Orange w/Blk Houndstooth (I'll try to post the Trim tag as soon as I get a picture).  The rear and motor are to be original but the trans is not (but date correct).  Here's the DZ stamp (V1012DZ) along w/the VIN on the pad (looks like 9N520843) and the Alternator (837).

Opinions ?

Thanks again guys/gals
Darrell

The 'location' of the stamps wrt the head are a bit different than I'm used to seeing..  Perhaps JohnZ, William, or Kurt can comment on the gang stamp and if they can get this close to the head with the head installed??   Usually the stamps are more near the front edge of the deck than these...

Getting the casting dates, and all other info would be helpful in making an originality determination...

Could we be possibly talking about 2 different cars?  just curious.  This is out of Oregon and currently painted black w/wht stripes and Blk Std Inter.  Owner to get me pic of TT which states the true color as 713 Int & 72 paint.  The car also may have come from Tennessee 8+ years ago with it's current black paint job.

I know you guys are on your cars..and I wanted to give that extra info just to make sure.

Thanks
Darrell

Oh wow..I didn't pick that up.  Yeah the gang stamp would of had to been right up against the head and there's not much room there.

Thanks

X3. You just couldn't get the holder that close to the head while installed on the engine, even at an angle.

What's up with the deck surface, too - looks like it's been shot blasted, or needle scaled ? Rough as a cob.
