Here's an added piece of documentation recommended by Len.  The "SHIPPING DATA REPORT"  really cool.  I was guessing the 18th and it seem like it was the 20th.  Knowing that and knowing that most TT were given 3-4 days in front of the production date,  that makes perfect sense as to it being a 03B and not a 03C build.   :)

Also in the beginning I had stated it was initially purchased from a Dealer called Liberty..That's what was relayed to me.  The City was Liberty, NY and the dealer was Klapper Chevrolet-Olds.  Anyone know if they're still around ?

Hey Rob,  thanks for the offer.  I may just be taking you up on that.  I just bag and tagged everything over the last 2 days.  Because there was Sooooooo many I only bag them by groups of quantity, length and thread size at this time.

Can anyone tell me as to which of the lower Alternator bracket is the correct one.  I just happen to have both in all the parts and both have different bends.  Was one for the #837 Alt. while the other was for a standard Alt. ?  Thought I'd throw in a pic of the top bracket as well.

I thought this was a kicker.  Check out the original seats.  Really hard to appreciate them.  Loaded with more grime..There's that grime again  :o   All still retain their natural shapes.  The springs are not worn or broke.  The undersides are discolored but who's gonna see that. The springs may look rusty from the pics but it's nothing more than a LIGHT surface dusting of rust.  Not sure if I need to really do anything to them other than clean them again.  I just did a rough cleaning and still need to get between the nooks and cranny's of the seams.

annnnd the back seats.  You can still see the grain pattern on front and backs.  Almost like they've never been sat on.

They are in great shape, just keep up with the elbow grease. Underside actually looks normal, don't worry about it. Try Murphy's Oil soap with a soft scrub brush (tooth) on them. Should cut through the remaining dirt. Don't worry if they appear dull at first, interior protectant will bring the shine back.

Darrell, I took the lower Alternator bracket off of my 07A X77 car this evening and it matches the one you have on top in your pics. My Alternator, water pump, deep grove pulleys, 772 fan, heads, intake etc are all the unrestored originals still on the engine so I have no reason to believe that my bracket is not the original also. I will post a picture of it later tonight or tomorrow.

Took a few days off from the car.  Busy working and getting some things caught up around the house.  I guess I can't play every day   :'(  but I did sneak in a few minutes before heading back out of town for a few days.

Here's the original Fan Shroud # 3938615  and the Flat tip Oil Dip Stick with "US GM 6041-M-QUALITY MS OIL m" (Little hard to see, just could never get good lighting for pic)

Darrell, here are the pictures of my lower alt bracket. Mine matches your top bracket on your first photo. Also notice the bushing in the middle hole. I'm not exactly sure yet how the smog pump bolts up as my smog was removed long ago. Maybe someone can shed some light on that. I would assume that is where the bushing/sleeve would be needed??

Excellent Len, Thanks a mill.   Just out of curiosity I wonder if the other bracket design was for those without a smog ?  ???
