Default 70 L78 Nova short block

Hi folks,

I have a 70 L78 short block with VIN 10W209174. Anyone know if the car is still out there?

Doesn't get much better, as far as broach marks are concerned

'

Best post whole Vins so anyone Googling them hopefully lands here.
Also, the Year digit Zeros are often confused w/ Letter O's so always worth trying both when searching.

Post L78 Engine...

CTY is a TH400 engine code....the 'W' VIN denotes a Nova. So, we are looking for a 70 Nova SS 396 car. Considering most of the TH400 cars didn't have the 'explosion problems' the 4spd cars had...good chance it may still be out there.

November assembly date likely means a December car...perhaps early January at the latest. I'll compare the date to our January TH400 L78 survivor.
