If I read your report on 67 Engine pad stampings correctly, mostly only Z/28 and SS 350 Blocks recieved a partial VIN. Is that correct? I am pretty sure I have the original engine, but became a little alarmed when I started reading about a partial VIN, and mine doesn't have one. My car is an 11A built LOS stadard V8 coupe, 327 2 bbl. w/Powerglide. It has 3892627 Engine casting, the Engine pad reads V1026ME, if I am decoding this correctly. It was built at the Flint,MI. plant- (V) 10 -(10 th mon.) 26 -(day) ME (327/210 hp w/Powerglide) The Block has a casting date on it of J 17 6, I decode as (Oct. 17 -66). Is this correct? Thanks!
