    Default Correct Date coding of engine block and components

    What is the consensus on correct date coding for engine blocks and related components? i am looking for a 4speed block for my 68 bird. i have now found a couple and with the dollars involved, i want to get the most "correct" one (if thats the proper terminology, that i can. i know it will probably ever be numbers matching. does it even make sense to spend the money? does it increase the cars value?
