To be numbers matching correct it has to be assembled out of parts that were cast about 14 days from the build date. Then it is just a mater of the block having the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the pad. Otherwise any Chevy engine is correct and any GM iron V-8 is fine (well aluminum ones are ok too; except for the early sixties 231 Buick V-8 that GM sold to Rangerover back in the late sixties).

Thumbs up

F0710D is correct for a 1964 full size passenger car with a 283 backed by a powerglide transmission.

For this to be correct you need to verify the build date of your car and compare it with the build date of this engine

F0710D is a Flint built 195hp 283 CI assembled on July 10th. Look for a 07B or 07C on your cowl tag top line.

You will not find a stamped VIN on this engine so date code is as close as you can get to verifying the original motor. If your dates match up it is probably the original one.

Cowl tag and VIN are it. If you look inside your car you might get lucky and find a build sheet (a piece of paper that instructed the assembly line workers what to bolt onto the car as it went down the line. It was not intended to go with the car (it was trash) but often ended up stuffed into some knock or cranny in the car).
