Thanks in advance for your help - we are a distributor remanufacturer and I am in search of a good information site that will give me distributor casting numbers so that I can provide original units to the restoration industry. We have a lot of old cores but I am unable to determine which casting numbers are in high demand. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Buy Colvin's "By The Numbers" books. They have all the distributor stamping numbers in them.

It's one thing to dig old desireable distributors out the parts bins to restore and sell them for outrageous sums of money. But a completely different thing to restamp the numbers to make them appear desireable. As long as you have access to "real" distributors it can be fairly profitable, but as soon as a restamp appears things will get ugly. This hobby/business has become much smaller and intimate becasue of sites like this one, chevelles.net and yenko.net.

That said most of the desireable 69 distributors are in the 1111480 to 1111499 stamping range, with the biggest money coming from the 480's. Of course they must also have the right advance plates and vacuum cans to be worth the big money.
