 Is there anything in the 4 section? What is date period (month number / week letter) stamped on the tag? It would be better to post a close up of the tag for a better analysis.

 So the engine code shows it's a 350/295 L48/automatic and the rear shows it's a 12 bolt non-posi.
What is interesting is the trim tag is missing the 4P code.
Here is a quote from the CRG indo: "The 4P code was not used at the start of production at either the Van Nuys plant or the Norwood plant.
Van Nuys started using the 4P code on the SS350 cars in September, but Norwood didn't start using the 4P code until October. Early Van Nuys SS350 cars and Norwood SS350 cars built before October will not have the 4P code to verify that they are SS's
. "
 This is looking like you car is an exception to this finding being yours is mid June 67 (Kurt?). Then again, with a VIN sequence of 666 anything is possible  Cheesy

The engine assembly is March 23rd. Early for a June build but it is possible it sat that long.  Both my 67 BB's sat about 2 months before being installed.
If you can dig into the block casting dates and numbers (intake, block, distributor and even heads if you want to pull the covers) that would present a clearer picture of what you have.
The June 1st rear date range is good. Is there a rear factory traction bar on this car?
Per the CRG end of month VIN report, the160666 falls in the June period, which is good.

As you can see, a picture can show us a lot!

Thr rear end has the bracket for the bar but there has never been on installed. Also the place where the bracket would be in the floorbaord is missing. It was never installed, no holes nothing. I will get the dates on the other engine parts and post them with some pictures. Thanks

Thats because the 4P code was one of the instructions to add the plate on the floor for the traction bar.  Without those instructions to Fisher you don't get the plate added to the floor.  Think someone pulled the wrong engine on the line, and it got installed.

I thought the 4p stood for SS350. are you saying the 4p only meant it had a traction bar? Can you clarify this for me?

Hi Tony,
   The casting dates look tight so that's a good sign. What are the head cast dates? Did you check the cast numbers as well to see if they are correct? So far everything looks good but it's fun to document the numbers. Per a UOIT (a document that is rare to find), that area of the plate where the engine code would be stamped is listed as the engine reinforcement assembly.
So, if Mark is correct with the traction bar plate installed vs. not installed, then that would make sense why yours doesn't have the code stamped.

So far,  based on what you have presented, it looks like the car is authentic. I guess other cars built with that power train combination would have to be sampled to make that a definite conclusion.
Do you have other documentation such as a POP?

I have the owner history. I am the 3rd owner. The original owner is dead. No paperwork. When I purchased the car I did not get the heads with it, all casting # are correct. There were several small peices missing ac brackets drive shaft etc. One other thing I thought was odd is the seat belts are the 68 & 69 design also look to be origianl to the car. Any idea where a build sheet might be in a LA car?. It still has the origianl carpet in it. Thanks for the information.

The build sheet *may* be above the gas tank though I have never seen one myself. I found the UOIT on my LOS car taped to the tunnel on the drivers side under the carpet along with an electrical inspection tag.
I was told these are rare to find however so I got lucky to have one with my car and it's the only documentation I have to show it is what it is.
