Nice, but it has the wrong grille in it and the rear stripes are painted wrong.

When I see those kind of problems, I always ask myself is it real?

Shouldn't it have a partial VIN next to the engine stamp?

I believe the VIN was stamped on the side of the block.

Thanks, I looked this up….FYI
For 1968 and on, the drivetrain partial VIN's became a federal requirement and all engines were stamped with the partial VIN. The format of the VIN code was changed to add the first digit of the full VIN, e.g. 19N512345, per the federal law.

In the 1969 model year, the partial VIN for V8 engines was stamped in either of two locations: on the engine pad or near the oil filter. The alternator was moved to the passenger side in 1969 which covered the engine stamp pad and caused the VIN stamp to be relocated by the oil filter. The block in this area is raw unmachined casting which makes this stamp difficult to see. The Norwood plant stamped the VIN on the engine pad on early cars and moved the stamp by the oil filter in the December 68 timeframe. Los Angeles was not as consistent and the VIN stamp location varied during the year.
