Sounds like that NPD show is a big one down south.

I am 99.9% sure I will be getting the original engine back this Thursday. Spoke to the PO today and he seems like he would like to have the 350 engine I bought a few weeks back. If it goes down, I will stick it in the corner after I take what I need off of it. (intake, carburetor, distributor, etc.) I figure why risk grenading the orginal short block and cylinder heads?

I'm sure some wonder why go through the trouble... the partial VIN will help verify the car. Doubt I'll ever sell it, but to me it's pretty neat to have the "born with" parts.

Picked up the engine out of my car today... it was in vain.

The partial VIN on the front pad does not match my VIN. And has a HN suffix... B body 300 HP 350 with a TH350.

On a high note, it does have a 1111499 distributor. I'll most likely sell it to help pay for some more parts. Also has 186 casting heads some people are after.

Been casually looking for a flat hood, missed out on a really nice one last month. I didn't think it would be so hard to find one. Don't want to sell my SS hood until I find what I need.

I'm replacing the hood on my '72 with a soon to be purchased 2" cowl one if you're interested...
Rust free AZ hood but has hood pin holes.

Thanks Bill, but I need a hood for the 69'. I have an original CI hood for my 72'.

Picked up an air cleaner, bell housing, and flywheel today. I'm lacking a starter and carburetor, getting very close to having all of the right parts.

Still up in the air about a transmission, m20 is cheap enough and what came factory. But an m22z would be better with the factory 3.31 gears out back. Might be worth the extra money for the added acceleration and not having to mess with worn out old parts.
