Ok, Here we go. This may very well be a scam. Believe me, I am a skeptic. A seller on ebay listed that he had been stashing a bunch of original MO blocks. So, I ask him if any of them have original VIN stamps. He says it will take some time to gather the information. Here is a link to his items for sale: http://motors.shop.ebay.com/merchant/thegmparts_W0QQ_nkwZQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZ
Here is the dialog copied and pasted:
Hi, I am looking for my original MO 302. Do any of yours have the VIN stamped on them?

Of course, I was excited to see that a possible match is on the list. But, I am also a little worried because I provided the 6 digits. I did not give a production date for the car so I am waiting to find out the specifics about the casting date and V****MO number. Does anybody know this seller in Indiana? The crazy thing is, I know for a fact my car spent some time in Illinois and Indiana. There is no way I would even consider a purchase without seeing and posting pictures of the block stampings on this website and getting a blessing from all. One thing that bothers me is that some of the vin numbers listed have 7 digits instead of 6. He did provide phone number. Thanks for the advice.
