With that date and block, it has to be 9N528866, a green Z.
The shipper for the car is in Jerry's book. Car is MIA to my knowledge.

Is that the car built Oct 68?? Shoudn't VIN be stamped next to the DZ stamp by water pump? I thought stamping near oil filter started Jan '69?

From CRG...

"During the mid-1969 model year, the partial VIN for V8 engines was stamped near the oil filter, due to the '69 model year change in location of the alternator to the passenger side (covering the engine stamp pad). The block in this area is raw unmachined casting which makes this stamp difficult to see. The Norwood plant moved the VIN to the oil filter in the December 68 timeframe. Los Angeles was not as consistent and the VIN location varied during the year."
