A friend is currently examining this car. He sent a pic of the VIN stamping by the oil filter. Looks real to me; it's a 618 casting. Asked him to get the casting date.

I still think the pad is a re-stamp; the V0314 part looks convincing but does not quite match up to other known March 14 dates.

Thoughts?

The misalignment of the D and the Z plus the spacing is what caught my eye. I agree with V0314 part, hard to make out any broach marks. Can you post the picture of the VIN? Car is right in my back yard.

The VIN stamping appears consistent with factory stamps in that location but of course even so the VIN doesn't indicate the car was a Z28 from the factory unless he has the original (legitimate) documentation and warranty book (P-t-P) matching the VIN, and even that wouldn't prove that the engine is the born with engine... 

I've never seen a real DZ engine stamping as 'odd' as that one.... so that is VERY doubtful!   It doesn't seem it was done with a gang holder.

I thought re-stamped also but wanted other educated opinions. No one disagreed.

He has accepted that. Still a great car; untouched real 10 10 X33 tag, pop, owner history.

The ad has been removed. William, did your friend purchase it? Can someone post the VIN?
Thanks, Doc.

Within a very few cars of my Z11 - makes sense. They were within a few days of each other - less than 375 cars. TO312HB, 03D build. Close to the same date on the tag ?

Regards,
Steve
