I found a 427/435hp '69 block and offered it to the original owner. He said, "Can't be mine, my car has the original engine". Never took it any further because he bought the car that way and it would only hurt him. Problem is, it'll hurt the eventual buyer of that same car. Another moral dilemma.
That same car was at MCACN. If that were mine, I'd still purchase the original block but leave the fake in the car.

Matt,

A friend of mine in PA bought a 67 427/435 HP new in 67 and it was stolen shortly afterward- he still after more than 50 years still carries the owners card everyday waiting for it to show up somewhere- when I saw your post I contacted him immediately- unfortunately its not his
his vin if this car turns up somewhere is 194677S109022

Best Wishes - I really hope this engine gets reunited with its body and owner
Fred

Of course it's a legit stamping. That's after I cleaned the years of grease and surface rust off the pad.
