Better yet..  Look at the vin & build date and the location of the stamp on the block..

Doesn't look to me like the same gang stamp was used on the engine and transmission(?)

CRG info indicates that began (for Norwood) in December; but may have occurred anytime for VN cars..  This one is a Norwood car (per the cowl data).

The engine partial VIN is not even close to matching the transmission partial VIN. Different font, spacing, and poor alignment. Looks like it was added after reading a few early books on how to identify a Z/28.

I would be precautions in assuming they need to match. I have seen more than a few that look different but are original to the car.

I have been told the engine and trans are considered legit..  Although I do not agree but I am dumb so use your own judgement..

I wouldn't buy it if JM himself were swearing on this Koran that it was 'factory installed'...  :)

The trans looks good and the DZ stamp and pad finish look good. It just looks like somebody tried to add a little extra proof with a home made stamp in the rough cast area. In hindsight it probably detracts from authenticating it.
