I have a 69 with VIN N545552. Tag has no X codes - just color and build date. If I read correctly, this is normal for early 69s which I think the 54xxxx qualifies? Any other way to tell what model it was/is? It has multi-leaf rear springs, a non original 10 bolt, louvered hood (SS?), SS emblems, SS steering wheel, etc. It has a disc brake pedal, but no front disc brakes. I think I have a mut, but am trying to get more info.
Motor seems to be a 67 327/275hp casting 3892657 with heads 3890462. There is a stamping on pad by the right head, but I can't make it out yet. It's has a saginaw tranny. Not positive what it is out of, but it ran strong about 5 years back when fired to make sure it ran. Car has been sitting since 83.
While I'm here, is it worth it to rebuild the 327, or should I go with the basic GM 350 crate motor? I wan't to use the Richmond or Tremec manual OD tranny. What's the 327 worth?

. Click on the pic and a couple more appear. Maybe someone can look at the holes in the firewall and give some info? I've read about the holes for the cables, but I've been unable to determine for sure .
