1971 T/A UPDATE
« on: November 08, 2018, 04:13:23 PM »
I have a want ad looking for a T/A block, and I just had a phone call from Western Canada and the guy is selling a T/A block but says it has a 71 casting date ? Is there such a thing ?

Does anybody have insight on this ?

@ScottSmith_Harms , @6bblgt …..Scott ? Dan ?  Should this exist ? He said he would get me pictures... :dunno:

Guess anything’s possible but I’d guess negative. 71 vin stamp on a 69 or 70 cast TA block sure

I've heard they used left over T/A blocks in cars after the fact, but they should have been cast earlier, right?  Do you think he's talking about the VIN stamp?

He says T/A is clearly casted in the DS after the part number and 71 is clearly casted on the other side... :dunno: I'm dying to see pictures too ….says he "assumes" it has TA heads on it too, but never removed a valve cover  :clueless:

Reading the title of this post, always thought it would be cool to build a yellow 71 T/A just like they had pictures of for advertising!  :drooling:

I haven't ever seen one but would guess that it's a replacement block made after production ended. .02

Interesting that there is still no standard rallye dash or floor shift for automatics mentioned in the '71 ad. That would be a bummer to order up this car new with all the race inspired equipment hung on it, only to jump in and discover you've got a standard dash and column shift. I wonder if a '71 T/A would be allowed to have AC since its a 4bbl instead of a six pack.

As for the original post, I remember seeing a 340 advertised as a '71 T/A block on Indy's craigslist for quite a while, but figured it was misidentified. The ad reran for a long time before someone bit.

I can just imagine showing up at the Dodge dealer in late 70 with a fistful of hard earned cash ready to sit down and order a new 71 T/A after seeing that ad.

The block has TA casted into it, but now he says the casting date is 1-24-69 ….however he says the assembly date is 1971 and the VIN is 1B297839 :dunno:

That was what I was thinking he would say....   :yes: 

I've heard they used left over T/A blocks in cars after the fact, but they should have been cast earlier, right?

Still a cool engine and it's a real T/A block.
