The fit on the passenger side headlight surround is awful....And how hard is it to fit an armrest....One of them looks like a banana  shruggy

That was the first thing that went true my mind to.
How is it possible to get the headlight surrounding so wrong if the baskets/front clip is okay?

Looks like the real numbers matching engine would like to have a word with the imposter.

Shocked  this don't look good ... it had to happen at one time ! the original motor turning up , actually this is not the first time ive heard this happening, i'm sure the Hemi owners will or more likely to have had or going to have this happen as their value increases & more cars that were previously unknown or suposadly destroyed in the 70s , make a return as a perfectly restored car with matching numbers motor.

I looked at this car a few years ago I noticed the rear window trim was not correct. Overall not a bad car.

I don't know what you guys are complaining about, the only thing better than one matching numbers engine, is two matching numbers engines, right? Lol

So is it worth any less because it is not the same colour green as on fender tag ?


Considering how nice F6 looks, arguably not significantly less.

Fender tag appears to be a repop.

Regardless of the block in the car,  any time I see a Facebook post from an attractive chick for a sought after part (that only one guy needs), it makes me wonder how legit it is.

True story- not that many years ago we had a 69 Camaro turn up at auction that the seller described to us as numbers matching.  Upon the cars arrival it was determined that the engine had been restamped.  When we called the seller out on it and told him the engine in the car was NOT numbers matching he told us, "yes it is, I know for sure its numbers matching because I stamped the numbers in the block myself".

Now that there is some funny shit!  A real wizard! I had a 71 G 440 HP engine that the top pad looks like monkeys stamped the numbers in it. I bought a 71 Charger R / T  from my friend, and he wanted to keep the engine block, so I traded him my block,for the matching numbers engine block, and the matching numbers engine blocks top pad looked like the same monkeys stamped that one too!

OK, in case anybody is wondering, I tried to find the information for the (661) 202-7659 phone number listed in the Facebook posting.  For this one it turned up still questionable, all I could find was Gwendolyn Dacie at Katherine Manor Ct. in Hamilton OH.  Attempting to find Gwendolyn Dacie or any information about her proved to be difficult so far.  It is strange because the 661 area code with 202 should be out in California, maybe Riverside or Commerce.  I found another mention of Gwendoly Dacie on Sword Court in Santa Maria California, so maybe that is the previous address or maybe the current address.

With cell phones it is now very common.

The other number I found for Gwendolyn Dacie was an (808) 212-xxxx number, which is in Santa Maria, California.

I'd be interested if anybody has tried to call the 661 phone number listed in the Facebook post.

I have a friend who collects unrestored Mopars. One of the cars he owns came with a 340 long block in a crate directly from the Plymouth dealer. It still had the warranty instructions for the mechanic. In the instructions from Ma Mopar it tells the mechanic to stamp the VIN in the new block. No extra or special markings were discussed. After seeing this I figure that there are a lot of "restamped" blocks done out there that are merely just warranty engines from back in the day.

    Wow, if you could send us a pic of those instructions, that could change the classic car world significantly. Then we can study the type of font used and depth to stamp the blocks....
