The B.A.T. listing says the cowl tag has been replaced. How do we know this '66 Vette came with a 427 from the factory?

Basically you don't. Everything gets faked and unless you disassemble the engine to measure bore and stroke, how can you be assured that its even a 427?

People fear change because it threatens what they know, or what they claim to know.
