Help matching motor to vehicle
Hello, I was referred here from the guys at Chevelle Tag Team, your sister site.
I recently purchased a convertible chevelle with a big block and was told it was a 454.
After further inspection and research I found it to be a 396. The engine casting number at the rear of the block is "3902406" which I believe makes it a 1967, 2 or 4 bolt main block (I have not pulled the pan yet).
The stamp on the front tab reads "T0517IN" which I believe the IN makes it a 1967 396/325HP w/TH (Turbo Hydramatic) & AR (Air Injection Reactor).
Next to the Suffix code stamped on the front tab is a vin "7O133581". This is were I'm stuck, can anyone tell from this vin what vehicle it may have come out of ?? It's difficult to tell if the 2nd digit is numerical of alphabet.
I would like to match this enigne to the proper vehicle if possible. Is there a service that conducts this type research ?? If it's possible to locate the type or even the car that this was removed from, I would be interested in buying it or selling them the motor so someone ends up with a correct numbers matching vehicle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
