Whats a real DZ? One that has been removed from a 1969 Z/28? it will still NOT be the correct motor for that car. Again DZ is nothing more than a suffix code. The guy should not have stamped anything on the pad. he should just try to sell the motor as a 302.

I guess then I start the hunt down for my original motor then...  I don't know how successful the desired outcome will be, but I guess I will just try and see where it lands me.  Here is the information on my car.

Dash Vin. No. -  124379L512041
Firewall Plate Numbers        S7  69  12437   LOS172666
 
                                           TR 711          7171      BDY
                                   
                                            ZA               6033       PNT

Do you need us to decode the information on your car, or are you simply posting this information to locate the motor?

S7 69 = Model Year
12437 = Coupe
LOS - Van Nuys (Los Angeles) California (until mid-December 1968)
172666 = Fisher Body Number
TR 711 = Interior Trim Code (Standard Black)
7171- Top and Bottom Body Code (Lemans Blue)
This is what I have thus far on the decoding part....
But I am going to try and track down the original motor by trying to find the person my dad purchased the car from and see if I cannot discover who took out the original motor.  Do you think that is the best place to start or should I try something else?  Do you think that finding the original motor is virtually hopeless?  I think that it would be pretty sweet if I could run it down or at least get pretty damn close...  How do I find out if it was originally a z-28 to make sure that nobody converted it?  I don't see anything in the code that designates it as a true z-28 thus far...
