Is there anyway to tell what engine and tranny the car had originally based on the numbers I posted above?

Yes. The car is not a SS350. It originally was a 307. Can't tell what the trans was originally. Is the column shift indicator still there?

You could always get a powerglide with a console.

Can you tell me how you were able to decipher that from my numbers so I can understand as well?  Thanks.

Chris,

The 2.73 rear axle (BP 0410G1) is the giveaway. That axle was "standard" on the two L6 engines and the base V8 (307/200). Yours appears to be original to the car going by the date (April 10th, 1969), so unless it was one of the L6 engines, it would have to be the base V8.

What's your VIN? This will at least tell us if your car was a V8 or an L6.

My 69 307 PG has the console, with floor shift. I believe it to be original.

More importantly, BP is a monoleaf axle. Only L6 and 327/307 cars got the monoleafs.

Going by the VIN, which is above in one of my previous postings, the car was a V8 originally.  Thanks for all of your help in deciphering this, I do appreciate it.  I'm sure I'll have more questions as the restoration moves on.

Yes, going by the VIN the car's a 307. (I didn't see it up in your post. Sorry...)
