Thank you Ed. This site has already been a big help. This site is like an interactive book and you guys being, the author of this book amaze me with your knowledge. To answer your questions, yes Ed the car was sold as matchin #s. I found the car on Hemmings. Heres how the ad read.

When I spoke to the man on the phone I asked specifically was the block, heads, intake, carb, tranny and rearend original to the car? He informed me they were. I now know the tranny and rearend are wrong for this car. I have the # off of the front of the block (VO211DZ). Where is the # with the partial vin located on the block, heads, intake and carb? Are there other #s and locations I should check and if so where?
Don't get me wrong this a beautiful car and I'm sure it's a Z but I feel as if I was mislead. I'm still in touch with the guy and hoping to work it out. Thanks again for your help.
