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 doesnít 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.

Hi

Thanks for your compliment and your legitimate questions i appreciate that.

- It is not easy to finde a full documented car.
- Money ;-) Top matching cars are expensive
- I decided that minimum 1 Drivetrain Part has to match, in my case is the engine.
- i dont live in the USA, so ist is very difficult to find a car over the sea from switzerland.

Regards

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

Many thanks!

Use the link to see the correct rivets, where to buy them, and how to install.
As to the tag itself, as Ed says above, it looks okay. You just need to properly install it.
it is a good looking car. Congratulations!

Andreí Ė You are correct about the $$$ but when it's all said and done I'm sure this '67 won't be cheap either. Wink

If you donít mind me asking; who verified the engine is original to the car? And, I cannot stress this enough; have the seller send you clear pics of the engine pad so you can post them on this thread. The pad should be as clear as, or close to as clear as, the one Iíve posted below, without paint.
 
I hope you donít think Iím meddling too much. I just donít want you to get burned.

No problem, you do not meddling me, it's very kind your care.

I am absolutly with you, it is very important to verify what you bought.
In this case i've trusted the seller, he owned the car for 13 years an wrote me in a mail the engine pad codes.
Not very clever i know, so don't denounce me.

So, i have no pic at the moment, but when i stay at destin, i will check de engine pad as my first task and will post a pic i this thread.

till then, keep one's fingers crossed for so, that the seller told the truth.

Andreí Ė There are several reasons why a pic of the engine pad is so important. One, there are several sellers who say their car has a numbers matching engine/Drivetrain not knowing they might be misleading a prospective buyer. Two, which is more often the case, a seller knowingly attempts fraud. And three (the most important), the experts on this site can spot a re-stamp a mile away (or the real thing). Either way you will have peace-of-mind knowing CRG has evaluated this portion of the car for you, or any other part for that matter.
 
In the mean time, here is an excellent link/source you can use to study-up on engine stamps.

If you don't get it by the end of the week there might not be a car. Looks like Isaac is gonna make a visit about Wednesday.

It occurred to me after I post we have a member in Destin, I Fire Chief or Captian. I can't think of his user name but seems like a nice guy, I'm sure he would help if needed. And I am serious, if you need anything when youa re in Florida just hallow 850-508-7357.

At the least make sure you go to McGuire's Pub jsut over the bridge in Ft. Walton when you are in Florida.

Hey guys, working this weekend and getting ready for a hurricane.  I'm sorry but I have never seen this
 car in Destin.   If you would like give me more information and I would be glad to check it for you.  The next few days maybe busy for me though.
