FOUND!! January RB engine case
Posted by: cnicol ()
Date: April 18, 2017 07:57AM

I'm looking for a set of engine cases with an RB stamp and a January date. Could purchase outright or I have an RL block with a December date if you're into trading. This would be for my '66 Sprint (my first car) project. Thanks for checking!

Craig,

I'll take a look and see what dates I have. I have 5-10 RB blocks as well.

Jeff,

I've got a RR bock, but it has the factory A/C Corsa coupe still attached. Sorry.

I have four RB cases but none that work for Craig...right?

T1206RB
T0325RB
T1222RB
T0329RB

The T1222RB and T1206RB are Yenko Stinger possible...right?

This is the Fisher Body ID plate for Craig's Sprint Convertible.



Last week of January 1966 - which would be Monday Jan 31st!!


Ideally, probably would be a mid-month date code:

T0115RB to around T0125RB

Thanks for the shout, Tim. Unfortunately, that ebay item is a Hand Bag. sad smiley I searched through 298 Corvair items in "block parts" and only found three sets of engine cases. One was an RB but a September Date code.

Thanks Tim. Body built at the end of June so pretty unlikely it has a January engine. Fallon is quite a hike; 10-12 hour drive, I'd guess. I'm sure something will turn up; there have been several "I'll check my stash" PMs.
