    Early Norwood Z’s did not have the Z on the cowl tag, just 28. We’d like to see some pictures.

    Here's a decent list of the transition from "No Z" to "Z" on the TT:

    Your's is an 04B but about 1000 units earlier than my car which also does not have the Z, but black stripe cars (.19) seemed to have them just a bit earlier by the second week of April (04B). It was kind of hit or miss until the third week (04C) which by then all seemed to get the Z.

    If the original block is out of the car, you could verify the casting date, and VIN stamp near the oil filter. The VIN will be very difficult to see, but it should be there.
