"V" is the correct prefix for a Flint-built engine (from '67-up; prior to '67 it was "F"); it would be "T" if it was a Tonawanda-built engine, and both engine plants supplied Camaro engines.

The engine code shown on the P-O-P is the same as the one stamped on the engine's front pad (that's where the clerk got it who typed up the P-O-P plate), and the Flint prefix was "F" through 1966, and "V" starting in 1967. If the decoder you mention says Flint had an "F" prefix after 1966, it's wrong.

One more thing to add, V was use for the V8's at Flint in 67 and up, but the L6 engines were still stamped with F for 67, 68 and part of 69.

That's why the change was made; the L-6 engines were made at the "Flint Motor Plant" in downtown Flint, and the Flint V-8 Engine Plant's "F" prefix was changed to "V" in 1967 to eliminate confusion in warranty reporting.
