I don't believe I've ever seen a Chevy II L79 with a 'T' (Tonawanda) designator in the engine suffix code. All the 1966 L79s I'm familiar with were 'F' (Flint) engines. I'm wondering if the punch wasn't even and the 'F' looks like a 'T.'

This is a nice car in the rarest of 1966 colors, but the ad doesn't mention any paperwork or other proof that it's a real L79. It also has some details that are incorrect....wrong oil filler, wrong fuel line, dual braking system, body color firewall, etc. Anybody notice it's missing the hood emblem? I also find it interesting that the word 'correct' is used in describing the drivetrain. Most sellers of L79s with 'as born' drivetrains are quick to use the word 'original' whenever and wherever possible. Correct could mean 'date' correct and not necessarily original. But hey, whats an L79 without dozens of questions.

To add, Red positive battery cable, exhaust exits behind rear tire instead of back bumper. Is there more? Love the color though. Ron...

Those 327 badges on the front fenders look a tad high. Nice car though.

Battery hold-down is missing, fire-wall is body color while trim-tag is black, no metal fuel line to carb, replacement alternator, '65 Chevelle SS hubcaps (that one always bugs me - when someone who doesn't know what they're looking for buys hubcaps for a 'restoration'). It has an after-market rally wheel for a spare... it would be interesting to know what wheels are being used 'on the ground' - AFAIK, the original wheels won't work with most disc brake conversions.

Anyone else notice the strange angle on the clutch pedal??

The hood is probably either a replacement or was taken from a '67. At least they got the lower body trim correct.

I'd really like to see clear close-ups of the engine pad stamp and the VIN tag on the door post...

"I have Title... Never looked for the build sheet."

Sure looks like a wad of steel wool. It isn't in the earlier engine pics.
