Caveat Emptor...block stamp

124379N626906

The DZ pad stamp in the photo does not compare with other March 12 DZ block stampings. The latest known 386 casting usage is mid-January. A March 12 engine would have used a 618 casting.

The car appears to be a real Z/28, originally Fathom Green.
Learning more and more about less and less...

You can see remnants from the original VIN under the "new" one on that transmission.
