    Just a FYI here. OEM 70 TO 74 z28 oil pans are the same. The NOS pans are not concourse correct. But will function fine. They are stamped out differently. I don't have any pictures to share. But surely someone else may take it further.

    Finding a NOS 70-74 pan will be difficult if not impossible. I recently sold one that was used but 99% perfect to a gentleman overseas. 70-74 had the thin front seal, 75 and later went to the thicker front seal and very small changes to the profile shape. Later versions had more changes in shape and were EPD coated. I have an NOS early thick seal version in bare steel which technically isn't correct for a 70. Bought it several years ago for a small fortune. Both early and later lt-1 oil pans show up on eBay from time to time.

    If memory serves me right... the front U that mates to the timing cover was 2 1/4 on the early and 2 3/8 on the late.
    Didnt 69 use the same pan?
    Maybe someone can chime in on this one and confirm.
    I know I have been stung by the 1 piece oil pan gaskets not fitting on the early pans!
    To thick and caused a sealing issue!
    Something about the timing covers related to this issue also I think.

    Thanks for the input guys. I guess I'll wait and see what surfaces. You never know.

    I have an original 70Z oil pan, but do not have the windage tray, drain plug or studs. When I got it, it had a small crack near the oil drain, (the metal gets really thin in that area due to the deep drawn stamping), so I had it professionally welded and leak tested. Oil drain threads are good. I then restored the pan using PPG DP-40 epoxy primer with single stage urethane "steel" appearing top coat. Would be willing to sell for $400 Paypal F&F plus the ride or pick up in Maryland.

    I have an extra windage tray and I think the studs are with it. Came with a 70 LT1 block I picked up.

    Thanks! I couldn't do the pickup. I'm in MN. I have no idea what shipping would be.

    You can't go wrong with the "pilot". He knows his stuff and is as honest as the day is long....
