We have seen original unrestored 70 Z28s with both 128 and 660 housings and there does not appear to be any correlation between early vs. late production, etc.

Was this an aluminum part? I see pictures of low mileage originals that are either silver painted or actually a stock looking housing made of aluminum.

Hi Tom - not sure if this was directed at my response or the OP, but both 660 and 128 thermostat housings were aluminum. if installed on aluminum intakes such as the Z28 or L78, they would be left bare aluminum, but if installed on a cast iron intake, they would have been painted orange with the rest of the intake.
