It's really a TYU. You can barely see the "T", but it's there.

V0929TYU

V - Flint V8 Engine Plant
09 - September
29 - Day
TYU - 1977 350/160 with manual transmission, 4-bbl carb (RPO LS9) 1/2 and 3/4 ton pickups

C7U118513 is the VIN
C - Chevy truck division
7 - 1977
U - Lordstown Assembly plant
118513 - Production sequence number that started at 100001. Yours is the 18,513rd truck produced at the Lordstown, Ohio Plant

can you tell me what the 160 stands for in:    TYU - 1977 350/160 with manual transmission  ?

is it 160HP?


It feels like it has a lot more power than that when driving it.

It started out as 160HP, but who knows what's happened in 30 years!
