Cortez Silver was not an available color in 66 from what I know but Chateau Slate was, color code &quot;W&quot;.

Good eye! The mag wheel covers on that car are in fact the '67/'68 style, easily forgivable on such a beautiful car!

I appreciate the congrats and thanks from all. For those asking about next steps and keeping up with progress. I didnt plan to tear into the car till mid to late this year as im finishin up a 71 SS LS5 car and its a rule to finish one before starting another. I will do my best to keep this updated but you may not see updates until the car is fully restored. One last picture....floors after the carpet came up. I was actually really happy with condition and already have a donor 66 floor/trunk to replace the bad spots. I like to treat the word reproduction part as a foreign concept.

I was looking a W-2 4A Atlanta car at a local show and noticed it had the high red line tach and the original VM radiator. The owner only wanted to talk about the 850 hp stroker motor and M22 in it. The owner said he had the original motor with a factory aluminum intake and transmission at home. He did not have a clue what he had, I left it at that. So here is another chateau slate BVT L78. This car was also built within 150 cars of another L78 I know of.

I got the slider out and found out why. GM put an M21 slider with the locking groves for 4th gear in the M20 with High performance engine


</div></div>

Are you saying this slider was normally only used with hi-perf close ratio M21/M22 transmissions? I thought the locking feature was relatively common on ALL Muncies from the era.

I'd have been trying to buy the original drivetrain from &quot;Stroker Man&quot;.
