It they took the time to turn it down on the lathe and re-stamped it, you would think they would have not used a G for the second 9 . That sure does throw it off, but maybe the guy/gal stamping used the G by mistake.
Never know with all the re-stamping that has gone on over years.
Most of those a$$holes have made loads of cash over that sh$t.

dist.

I highly doubt that's a restamp. It would cost more money to do then its worth. Very common 350 dist. I think the last one I sold was $75..
Oh, but this one is called a "W31" distributor. That's like a w30 bolt. LOL

You can still see the mark after the date where the roll stopped. I believe it is real. There are two versions of this number stamping. It is not likely you are going to see 442laura selling restamp stuff from my experience. Maybe if they got it long ago and did not know it.

Now that I look at it more, I am not so sure. If this is real there are 3 versions of this number stamp. I would be more suspect of this now. If it is fake I bet they don't know it.

This is one version of a known real one. The other known version is not like the one on eBay.

I'm used to seeing a gap between the number and the date, like on yours Eric. Has anyone seen an application number and date stamped close together like the one on ebay?

I sold a 1111975 dist for $75.00 about three years ago. They are getting $200 plus over on the Olds FB pages. Surprised the heck out of me.

X2. I got $150 for my last one around a year ago. I still have the one in the picture above left.

The 1111975 distributors were used for all 4 barrel 350 motors in 1970 as we all know. I think the reason there was a more recent upswing in value on them was the greater awareness as guys prepared to get their W31 cars ready for MCACN. There were a number of people looking for very specific date codes. It also brought about greater awareness for guys who owned 31 cars that werenít attending but wanted to get their cars right too. The 31ís were in the spot light. I even noticed how few 879 alternators there were.
