'64 engine #


OK, finally got an engine number off our car - 834472644 -does that sound like a vaguely familiar number to anyone? It's supposed to be a 283/195 and I think the engine is original to the car. Appreciate any input..

Nothing gets by CSI Carl!
It's a typo. For some reason they put the "1" instead of the "8" on all my documents!

Thanks everyone,

I've been offline here for a while. Yeah Carl, I noticed the '83' vs. '13' thing too. If anybody could comment it would be interesting to find out. At this point the number I have is right off the GM documentation we ordered. It's very difficult to get to the spot on the engine where the no.'s located due to a large bracket that sits directly over it. We're pretty sure the engine is original but not totally.

Thanks for everyone's help...!

Neil
