Mismatched Cowl Vin to motor and gearbox
« on: Today at 01:15:09 AM »
Hey there all,

I'm writing from Australia and I've been trying to find an answer to the following for the last 4 yrs for my 69 z/28.

The Vin plate numbers on the Dash and cowl and firewall all match ( 124379N694413 ), but the matching numbers on the motor and gearbox differ by 60 ( 19N694473 ).
No one seems to be able to tell me how this would be possible coming from the factory as it would seem that 60 units of difference should be within 1 day of production.
Is this a normal occurrence on a production line and can I call the car a matching numbers vehicle?

Any information would very helpful.

The stamping you have posted all seem to be genuine, but I am going to let Kurt comment.
