Nasty rusty pad, but a really clean stamp.
Cause it's a restamp, just like his other DZ block.

And he added the extra DZ stamp on the block, just like the other block.

That's where he practiced his stamping technique before hitting the engine pad!    ;D

Thanks for pointing out the fakes Kurt.    :)

Kurt,

 On his other block is the VIN a restamp on the pad? Just curious as how they replace the date/id stamp and not the other. Machine it carefully?

Thanks.

It's a restamp with the VIN too.

I didn't look close at the VIN, but I think it's a restamp too.

Interesting marketing approach. Stamp a VIN to add validity to the product. Which makes it incorrect for almost any car except that VIN, but close for some.

Thanks for replies, just makes me wonder when someone with a big block SS or a 307 base model comes across their "original DZ" with matching VIN. Kind of gutsy to put a VIN on a motor unless you know for sure the car does not exist anymore.
