All big blocks were cast on molding line 1 at Tonawanda. All small blocks were cast on line 2. The "conv" and "HiPo" wording on the housing cores had no significance by the late 60s.

Default SS 427 / 425 Impala convertible

Beautiful car, and a great story. Why doesn't the Shipper document show L-72 437/425, just Z24 SS 427? Though LD on the protect-o plate is for an L-72 427/425 in a full-size Chevrolet in 1969 I believe. Not judging, just trying to learn how it was done back in the day.

The factory invoice should show it. Interesting that it does not. Probably a goof at the plant. The cost for Z24 is with L36 included. Should have shown L72 separately above M21. Wonder if the dealer saved some $ because of that and I wonder if there is a cost difference compared to the order form. Would be interesting to see. The Z24 ECL code AB is correct for L72. This car is one of 273, 69 SS427's with the L72!

Next thing to look for will be the build sheet. Since the interior is original, almost a guarantee there is at least one if not more. Either back seat half, under both bucket seats and inside the bucket seat backs are all places Wilmington left them. Nice it's a Wilmington car so you should find one. I've been working on deciphering the codes so it would be a good example to see!

Real glad to add this one to the SS427 registry. It's the 100th US built 69 Z24 in our list!
