Re: Ls6

That block stamp is comical. So much wrong for that kind of money.

Re: Ls6

There's more things wrong on that car than there are correct. What's with the rear window defogger? The switch is even on the wrong side of the radio. My original has a whole different style blower motor and grill than that one.

Re: Ls6

Not including block stamp, for the money asked there is a ton of stuff missing or incorrect under the hood.

There are two types of defoggers.

This one covers the window better imo.

Re: Ls6

I am far from what I would term an expert on 70's but there are so many things incorrect on that car that I can pick out, any buyer that pays that amount is getting raped. Wow...Buyer beware! It is a nice car, just not what I would call a $100k+ car!

Re: Ls6

Interesting reading if you go to the bottom of the page on his Ebay ad and look at the Question and answer part. Another guy that doesn't see a problem with restamping an engine.

Must be staged responses, or fake 427 tri power Corvette guys that accept re-stamps IMHO. All about greed.

Re: Ls6

"To me the date codes are just as important if not more important because they cant be faked, as the are cast into the block." Then I guess you have never seen someone use a certain over the counter product to re-create bogus casting dates. I will not disclose it as it will only give people more ways to fake these cars.

"I NEVER said ANYWHERE in the text of the write-up that "THIS IS THE MOTOR THAT CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH THIS CAR." No offense but that is exactly what you said.
"The engine IS the matching numbered 454 with 450 horsepower that came with the car from the factory."

Maybe the word "the" should have been "a"
The numbers do match NOW



Beautiful Chevelle!

Snake oil salesman, or, in contemporary parlance, douchebag. I wouldn't buy that car if I had garage space and all the money in the world. Ain't it funny how some people double down when they're so clearly in the wrong? I can't believe he actually believes "matching numbers" means you simply take a block out of a scrapyard and hammer in the same numbers written on the build sheet.

I think Frank will be keeping his $139,900 "matching numbers" LS6 for a long time...
