The owner claims there are two DZ engines for this car. Is the second engine as the owner claims? At 120K in pocket change I certainly hope so.
"As stated, this killer 1969 Z/28 comes with two 302 cubic inch V8 engines. The first is a correct DZ code block that is currently installed in the car, and the second is the cars actual numbers matching born with motor that has been professionally blue printed and restored by AMT Racing Engines."
The text also provides some dates... "Included in the sale is the cars completely blue printed and restored original block, that is stamped with a V0507DZ assembly date and decodes as follows: (V) Flint Michigan (05) May (07) the seventh day of the month and (DZ) which classifies the block as a ‘69 Z/28 exclusive 302 V8. The block is also branded with a 3970010 casting number which confirms its status as a 1969 302, and an E18 casting date code which translates as May (E) first (1) 1968 (
. Stamped on the side of the block is the car’s partial VIN of 19N645163 which confirms that it is indeed the original block ."
1) the '010 block casting didn't appear until sometime in '69 CY, so how could it have a casting date of 'E18'?? and isn't that a LOT early for an assembly date of 7 May 1969? ie... V0507DZ ... or perhaps it's a May 18 casting in '69? with the 9 somehow gone missing from the casting date? and assembled 11 days before cast?
Yet the text says it's the original matching VIN derivative stamped into the block...? Either I'm missing something, or this is a LOT strange?
