He said he was from Oregon I think. But the ad is actually on facebook marketplace.

Picture isnt the best. I would have to defer to Kurt on this one. The earliest 67 z stampings I have are March 67. The MO stampings I have for Feb are from 1968 so they are of no help.
Would be interested in seeing a casting date and clock casting number. The MO when blown up look kind of odd to me.

Seller won't provide any other information. Too bad, I really wanted to pin him down on this block

If he wanted to sell it, he would post everything needed to be seen. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Is the seller from the Fresno area?  Looks like the block that was on craigslist back Jan of this year.  Jon Mello, did you happen to capture those photos from the CL link I sent you back in January?  I failed to do so.. :-\

Dos Palos/Merced; near enough to Fresno.

It looks like the same photos.  The reply I got from him when I asked for the vin was; "no vin.  They didn't come with them til '72"

In that Ebay ad I see the casting is 3892657 and a way better pic of the stamping.

I can't really tell. Could be a modified ME. Would have to see in person. MO should have a VIN but ME, nope. There has been "some work done on the pad" from what I can see. I doubt I have anything to compare with that early, but later I can see what I might have.

Yupp same motor. Seems he gets around. Last message from him said he had a buyer in Washington for $3800. Ill pass. He's not forthcoming with additional info. Shady in my opinion.

When I didn't reply after his "no vin" text he sent another message a couple days later saying he had a guy coming that weekend to look at it if I wanted to make an offer..  Buyer Beware.

My first thought was ME changed to MO due to non VIN stamped pad too.

The dash in the middle of the O is clearly visible. Interestingly, it's bid to $11,200 tonight.
