Thank you for the decoding help
Thank you big Dave, Warren and Paul. You've helped emensly with the body tag decoding. All the information dictated by the numbers matches. Warren here is the VIN # of my 64 since you asked: 41447S112877, The engine number is S112877 T09I7QC. I decode the engine number to be:
T = Tonawanda
09 = September
I7 = 17th day
QC = 340HP and 4bbl Rochester with a manual transmission
The engine block does have an "X" on the front of the block, Driver's side and the oil dipstick is on the Passenger's side. So I'm concluding that this is the original 409 in this Impala. I also have the original purchase agreement, trade in paperwork, and written request for a loan on this car. You guys have helped me further confirm that this white baby is the real deal. I'm looking forward to asking, reading and hopefully answering inquiries on the many forum subjects here at Impala Tech. Regards, Jim V.
