I don't know for sure, but I would be suspicious. It sounds like someone is trying to pass the car off as a numbers matching GTO, and all they have for the motor is a collection year correct parts with no way to authenticate ... I'd be very wary of this, unless they're selling it for a non-numbers matching price of a goat in that condition

Here's the location of the VIN code on the motor. It should read something like 28P123456. 2 = pontiac, 8 = 1968, P = final assembly plant and the last 6 digits should match the last 6 digits on your VIN plate which is located on the drivers side at the base of the windshield on the dash. You need to look from the outside of the windshield to see the plate. If it's a numbers matching motor the VIN plate will read 242678P123456. 2= pontiac, 42 = GTO, 67 = conv., 8 = 1968, P = final assemly plant and the last 6 digits is the sequence number that should match the block for a numbers matching motor.

not saying your car is none numbers matching but with the block restamping kits thay got out and the corect rivets to reattach the vin tag and body tag after removeal off the body for restoration ae being made it is all to easy to find a junk car take the takes off and buy a block restamping kit and use a full size car block. sad but true
