really nice car - was this possible?
« on: October 13, 2008, 02:53:38 AM »
This is a real nice 70Z listed on ebay.
I believe it is WAY over priced already, but I was watching for a bit. 
still thinking of adding a 70 to my collection.

I may be wrong, but I did not think there was EVER a LT-1 or 302 produced at Tonowanda.
Anyone know for sure?

Seller has a lot of stuff to back it up - but I just thought this was not possible?

That's correct. It's also a Saginaw casting with a Tonawanda pad stamp - that didn't happen either.

John.   Are you saying that the 'documentation', including the PoP (showing the engine stamping?)..  is fake?   Wow...
What are you saying was a Saginaw casting?  the engine?   How can you tell?

The engine block is a Saginaw casting - the casting data has a single-digit year (0).

Tonawanda castings used a two-digit year on the casting date (70).
