Read the terms of sale like a lawyer. It says you have to inspect the car before you bid not after you win. Ditto on the red flag!

I know this has nothing to do with the engine stamps but the wheel shown is a K19. Paper in the picture says K18. On the car they all appear to be the later narrow slot wheels(K19).

If the wheels are the original ones, I think they incorrectly restored from what I see?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but during the VIN derivative stamping process, the engine and trans were stamped at the same time using the same stamp. Is this right?
No, not always.

No, not always.

Would two separate gang dies be used, at times? For instance, someone at the front of the engine to stamp the block, and someone at the back to stamp the trans.? If so, did they have a separate source of individual dies for changing the VIN numbers?

The reason I ask is that I'm seeing a discrepancy between one of the digits - block to trans.

Yes, something in the process changed and they sometimes used two stamps.

So it is possible that the font on the block could be different than the font on the trans.?
