FWIW, the (Dorman) cam plug is in backwards (FE engines have the cam plug reversed from the way they normally go). The cam can rub against the plug if installed the "normal" way (as is the case here).

P.S. the partial VIN 199999 is pretty interesting/unusual!

I saw the car on Craigslist. This was actually my uncle's car he owned in the 90s. I remember riding in it when I was a kid. I don't think I live far from you, and I may be interested in it if it's still available.
