    Could you please post a picture of that stamp?
    I have never heard of a Norwood car with the VIN on the deck.
    The casting date on the block would be positive verification of the block date.

    It appears that someone re-stamped the block. The heads are incorrect also. Still, for 3 grand there are many factory parts that this car was "born with" still there. From your pictures it appears that the master cylinder may also be original. Whatever you do, I advise that you do not throw away any parts without consulting the folks here first. The brake booster, master cylinder, and many other parts will have markings to denote if they were for your car.
    The transmission should be checked also. Every original part that is still there makes car a bit more valuable.:bowtie:

    I agree, that does not look right at all. and its not just someone being sloppy on the assembly line.

    Daytona Yellow Z-28 Vin Codes

    actually you are both right about the pad stamp I called the former owner and he said the block was decked at one point and his machinist restamped the vin vo626. the owner found the protectoplate last year in his toolbox and said the same vo 626 number is on the plate . hes gonna send me the protectoplate by mail which is awesome. and he swears the partial vin by the oil filter is factory which I believe him. just look how rough and grainy the surface is that is not a restamp but original. so what if the numbers aren't in a straight line.assembly line workers aren't perfectionists especially if it was a Friday shift at the plant. now I know that the engine is born to my Z-28. ALSO THERE IS NO CASTING DATE ON MY BLOCK WHICH I HEARD IS COMMON ANOTHER FACTORY SCREWUP. AND I KNOW THAT MY ENGINE IS SUPPOSE TO HAVE THE 186 HEADS AND IM MISSING ORIG. INTAKE VALVE COVERS AND AIRBREATHER THANK GOD THE BLOCK IS ORIG. THX OR YOUR HELP AND INFO GUYS I WILL POST PICS OF THE PROTECTOPLATE WHEN I GET IT:p :
