    There's no 'DTW' suffix shown in Ed's Lime book.... Ae you sure you read it correctly?

    Personally I like "molested" cars better than original cars!!

    What's a "hardtop post"? If it has a post, it's a sedan.

    Look behind the driver's side head for the block casting number....that will give a good start.

    DTU is a 1979 305 and and DWT is a 1983 TBI 305. Check the numbers again and supply a casting number. its likely a 305

    Posted on the Corvette Forum:

    I did'nt see "DTW" either, but all the "DT_" series, were 305ci used in 1979 ONLY. There were 16 "DT_" motors going from "DTA" to "DTZ" with "10" missing. "DTW" is one of the missing.
