Spot on Heo, I do believe it was a '67, had a 390 in it too as I recall-  Better safe than sorry though Marc, I'd check the back for a banjo or any of Ned Beatty's personal effects ;D

Got my clock rebuilt with a quartz movement and re installed. Did a little engine room cleanup and starting to figure out what engine is in this deal.
There is no Cxxx that I can see yet.
There is a 2 with a couple dots where there code should be.
The date code is tough to read. I took a wire brush to it but still tough.
I read the date code as 6M15. That would be odd though as it's a 66. IF it's the original block. Doughtful. What do you guys think about the date code?
There is a 24 DIF code also which I think means mold#24 Dearborn.
Heads are C1AE-As so not original.
Tomorrow I'll check the stroke.
And yes someone needs some gasket goop help.

Marc it appears it has been changed out at some point as that is a 9M15 date code which also explains the no engineering number on it.

Ok we've got a 390 here.
It runs great. It was running 8* initial when I got it. Popped it up to 12 just for an initial tune and tweaked on the carb. Plug looked ok for now, you can see that it cleaned up over how it was before. The po ran Autolite 45s which is what I would run in this. A little hotter plug for idling around LA.
It's got an Ed on it now which is not my favorite. Think I'll switch it out to a 600 Holley with kick down and electric choke. Gotta find a good deal somewhere, hmm, lemme see, who do I know.......... ;) (hi Drew)

A bit late to the conversation but I am pretty sure these guys make the interiors that Dearborn sells:

They are nearby too.

And a tip- That under dash convenience panel is kinda rare and brittle.

Thanks 177. ;D
I've already ordered the seat material.
But I'm curious about the under dash panel. Planned to figure it out but haven't gotten there yet. :D
