                       10D = 4th week October build date TR 712 = black custom interior 69B= Cortez silver paint/w black vinyl top

Thanks for the help on the trim tag.  Hopefully someone will know something about the ID#.

  Your welcome sorry I cant be more help the VIN only tells what plant it came from N=Norwood and that it had a V8 from the factory. As for the block and heads I don't have a book that will tell me what the casting numbers go to. If you look on the block behind the altanatior (at least on small blocks) there is a pad that should have a stamp on it (something like T02VMC) followed by the last part of the VIN number to the car it was orgionaly installed in. If you can get those I can help a little more by telling you what kind of car/truck the engine was orgionaly installed in.

Colvin's Chevy by the numbers book shows the Engine casting number  application as a 1969 (mid year) 427 for Passenger,Corvette,Chevelle and Camaro.Also 1970 and 1971 454 applications.
The heads as 1969 - Passenger/427, Chevelle/396, Camaro/396, Corvette/427, and Chevy II / 396.
The casting date and pad stamp will help narrow it down.
