VIN stamp location
« on: July 16, 2012, 12:38:39 PM »
There's a '69 Pacecar for sale with a pic of the engine pad stamp. 
It shows the engine code on the left and the VIN to the right. Looks real enough but I thought the VIN stamp at Norwood was relocated to the rough cast by the oil filter around Dec. '68.   This is a late Feb. assembly. What gives?

I'll post a pic shortly.
Enjoy Life!

Re-stamp. The block has been decked.

Thank you, William.  I suspected as much.  He did a pretty good job on the engine code, would you agree?
Enjoy Life!

Too good, actually.

Can't hide the deck surface though.

It almost looks like a "C" or an "O" under the "4" & it looks like another "1" at the end of the VIN...Joe

I picked up on the deck surface but I thought that 6 in the engine code looked suspect?
