Welcome, I am a semi-neebie, and very happy to be a part of this forum.
I have to say, as I have said in the past, I am not an expert in THIS field by any shape of the word. And doing my best to learn as much as possible. AND be able to retain it.

 But this cowl tag is not looking right to me. I hope I am wrong. William, Paul, Mark, JohnZ, Marty and all the guys will straighten it out as soon as they chime in. I wish interested parties sent pictures and check in BEFORE they buy. Again, don't panic, you will know very soon.... Danny

I've sent Ed a PM asking him to look at this.
I've got a question about the rivets.
Like Danny, I'm only saying this needs a closer look.

If you need a 67 trans call Danny at 336 621 4327 in NC or the 4speedman at 803 581 5466 in SC. His web is www.4speedman.com. They have got 4 speeds and their work is top notch. I would think they are both in Carlisle PA for the vette show this weekend. They both takes trades also if the freight would not be so much.

 Welcome Andre'

  Does the partial engine VIN match the hidden VIN? Look below the windshield area under the cowl vent panel closely for the stamped hidden VIN.
What is the block casting date? Can you post pictues of the engine pad?

Welcome to the forum, sounds like a nice car.

Where in Florida is it? If it is in the upper part I may be able to pay it a visit for you.

You have done an amazing job at decoding this car; assuming most of it is correct. One question; why are you putting so much effort into a First Gen that doesn’t have a numbers matching transmission? If I were looking for something in Switzerland to be shipped to the United States, my first requirement/priority would be; is it a fully documented numbers matching drivetrain?  By looking at your post, one would think this is very important to you as well.

And...what Mike said X2 about the E-Pad.

Tag's been off the car (reinstalled with standard hardware store rivets), but it looks okay to me. I will of course bow to Kurt or Daniel's expertise.

Can you post a picture of the engine pad?

Just as an FYI, I have the M20 Muncie from 7L137175 and it is stamped P7T06 (Dec 6, 1966).

There was a Muncie on Ebay (10/2011) out of 7L135413 that the seller claimed was stamped P7A06...
