    Jeff - Wow! That's an early block, probably before Dec 1969 production - Lon

    Would probably be a good idea in general in the section to post the whole VIN(s) (only two possible in this case, but even on a GS 350 or 455 it wouldn't be that many) in case someone happens to Google it.

    Given it's an SS, it would have to be one the following:
    446370H179483 (Hardtop)
    446670H179483 (Convertible)

    My name is Michael Gilliland,
    I am the lucky owner of a 25/25 70 Stage one car that was found in a farm field in Placerville Ca. The car has original drive train, except 1 head and block. The guy who found the car said the block was there when he took the car. Years later when I was trying to track it down I hit on a V8buick post w/ a link to a craigslist ad for a 70 Stage 1 block on Sacramento CL...out of Placerville!!! This has been near 10 years ago... Given the low production numbers of these cars, and the fact that Placerville is fairly rural and sparsely populated...I have to think there is a chance. If anyone has any clues, ideas, leads...I would be most appreciative. It is an early car...begining OH138
    Thanks!!
