Outstanding 67 Steve. It's funny, so many of us refer to the PBT stamps placed on the firewall of restored cars as "firewall graffiti" when in fact it's not if you're going for an authentic resto, as proven by survivors like yours.
L78 M21. That must be a hell of a lot of fun to drive. Congrats!

When I purchased the car it hadn't run in 15 years. In fact it wasn't even running when I purchased the car. After cleaning the tank , flushing the fuel lines and rebuilding the carburetor she fired right up. The car sounded awesome, and had some radical cam that wouldn't idle below 1300 rpm. The tires were L 60's and hard as a rock. It wouldn't hook up worth a darn.

Brian D. purchased the car from the original owner just 3 weeks before he sold it to me and told me it had been raced some, and provided me original owner contact info. I called Yue the original owner, and made arrangements to meet and discuss the history, and see if he had any documentation on the car. He provided me with a test and tune log documenting the adjustments he made such as timing, jets, plugs, gas ect.., along with corresponding results.

Although the motor was original, it was a mystery in term of internals and knowing it was run hard I decided on a rebuild. The engine was clean inside and still standard bore, heads original and were in excellent condition. The rebuilder, Hampton Engines said the main bearings caps had shifted, due to over revving.

Me being a purist, I brought the car back to stock, however I kept some original day 2 components I took off in 1996. Who knows I may reinstall at some point. To me a Motion stinger hood would look awesome on the car.

Presently I'm in the process attempting to reconnect with Yue. I also have info of an identical car ( same color options and powerplant) that was tearing up the street, but different owner.

Just for clarification The firewall had already been painted at the time of my purchase and orig PTB were covered over. The only ones present, and undisturbed were on the tub (between the door and fenders). With a rag and solvent I carefully wipe paint in areas where firewall PTB stampings were usually found. Well it paid off because I was able to locate the original stamping locations. I believe I have a VHS tape that shows me uncovering the original stampings.

You sure that old VHS tape isn't really a Betamax tape?

Thanks Mark. It arrived at 9:30 this morning. I take my dog to a county park every Sat morning for a 7 mile walk. If I don't take her she will pester me to no end.
On our walk I received a call from transporter that the car would arrive in 40 minutes. Well I cut the walk short and raced to where I store cars. When i arrived they were unloading, however they couldn't get the car to turn over. I crawled under the car and tapped the starter, and immediately a symphony that only a solid lifter BBC can make began. What a spectacular car that I'm fortunate to own again.
