Really Looks like "HOME MADE" broach marks on the pad to me?

Reminds me when I was looking for a used 40 foot class A RV.  Had a seller tell me that the coach was all packaged up in Omaha NB and ready to ship and if I didn't like it I could ship it back within 30 days.  I told her I had a relative in the Air Force stationed at Omaha and he could go look at it.  She said it was all boxed up and he couldn't see it.  She seemed to have no clue what an RV even was.

I think the rack broach section used on this block needed changing, obviously it had been used continuously since V8 production began in the fall of 1954.

The free shipping is a nice trick - good of the seller to part with some of the $45K extra profit they will make at this price - lol.

Shame, it is a pretty car. Amazing what claims people generate.

This is in Auburn down the road from my friend. I have been talking with him about this car. I got them to remove the paint on the pad and get the block build date and cast #"s posted. The trans VIN is on top. They are pulling the trans today. My friend is friends with the owner. This car has sat in a storage container since the early 80's. My buddy feels like this is a good stamp on the pad AND the rear.  :o :o  So, I bet him a thousand dollars that it was a restamp. I wouldn't be able to take the money, but it is fun. I sent it to JM and he doesn't like it. And feels it is a bad restamp. My buddy says JM is super sharp, but is mistaken on this one.  So the reason my buddy thinks it's real is he has a '68 Nova SS from the Willow run days and it has the same font stamp. It has the closed " 4". I pointed out the 3, 4, 8, and the M on the MO part. BUT... that because it's a NON Norwood car. And they both have different stamp fonts??? I am dying to know. Car is WAY to low and has replacement fenders with thumb size gaps. Rubber under tank straps and a few other things. Most importantly engine trans stamps. Was on CL for 65K yesterday? ... Danny

Nicely equipped.
Broach marks of blocks machined in Flint in the same time period would exhibit similar characteristics - same with assembly and VIN stamps.
Comparison should illustrate differences or similarities.

Go collect your thousand dollars because (in my opinion) it's a restamp. Look at the broach marks. They're not parallel to each other (see below). The numbers are also spaced too far apart from each other as compared to other stamps in this same time frame.

Not only that, but a few quick things I noticed is that the car has 69 "bent" head rest seats, cheap $100 generic leaf springs, incorrect exhaust, missing the bell housing inspection plate, silver (?) brake booster, aftermarket shifter and missing the upper molding on the fold down rear seat (also see below). I also believe the axle is a restamp.

I'd like to see a better picture of the transmission suffix & partial VIN, the date code of the block and the date code on the center section of the axle. A better picture of the wheel date codes would also be nice, but to be honest, in my opinion he's asking almost $98k for a $35-$40k car.

I was going to go take a look at it today, it would appear that there it too much in question on the car. Thanks to everyone for saving me the trip.

I didn't say it WASN'T a Z28. It may very well be. But with all the restamps and incorrect items on the car, you'd need to either get factory documentation or have Jerry MacNeish inspect it before plunking down that kind of money.
