    And for that the automatic was probably more interesting than a 4 speed.

    I'll have to admit, from a cruising stand point which most of these cars are subject to, the auto is a nice convenience for us guys with the old legs:).

    I have a 05D norwood car Vin is 1847 after this car, my block casting date is D280 April 28, 1970. Yellow car had D60 for casting date. Struck me as odd that they would burn thru 22 days of LTI engines in same week.

    Odd it is. They wouldn't have. The car had a replacement block that was the same type, meaning a 3970010 block with a "close enough" date code. Close enough meaning as long as it wasn't cast later than the cars build date it was in this case OK to the restorer.

    I know Ive mentioned this multiple times........but Im the member who ordered
    a NEW 70 Z28 with a COLUMN SHIFTED Auto. (One of how many ???)

    I never realized it when I owned it , that the M-40 had the 6 Bolt Convertor
    with ?? stall and a tweaked valve body ...different that "ordinary" T-400.
    (same as LS-6 Chevelle)

    It was A LOT of fun to play with when I owned it from 1970-72ish ????

    After mods I got it to run 12.9's at Pacific Raceways, Kent,WA
