Re: Think its really a Z-28 engine?
Seems odd, they'll scrape the paint for the DZ identification, but not the VIN? The V0129 DZ seems a little too perfect to me. My 67 RS/SS 350 (verified original motor) has sloppy numbering at best, and the VIN and ID are definitely stamped differently. I also have two 69 blocks, 1 blank and 1 with similar conditions.
Some guy out here in Cal tried selling his DZ motor on Craigslist, but when I read everything and looked at his pictures I confronted him. It was obviously a scam, and he just shrugged it off as a "clone sale" and said he never actually claimed it was the real thing.
Too many corrections with this guy, seems like trouble.
