Hi, im new to the forum. I just purchased a 1966 impala and im looking for info on the car, i was told the engine is a 327 with a two speed powerglide tranny.
here is the vin number:164376n125905. and the id tag pic,can anyone help a newbie, thanks in advance.
sorry for the size of the pic.
12C = 3rd week of December (1965) build date 16437 = Impala 2 door Sport Coupe, 8 cylinder NOR = Norwood, Ohio Assembly Plant
Trim 814-A Black
Paint Y-Y = Crocus Yellow Accessory Codes:
1st group E = Tinted Glass (all)
2nd group S = Rear Antenna
2nd group R = Rear Radio Speaker
5th group Y = Custom Deluxe Seat Belts
Neither the VIN nor the TRIM tag will tell you what engine you have. That information is on the engine itself. It has a little shelf cast into the front of the block on the passenger side. Clean it off with a wire brush and an aerosol can of brake cleaner and you will be able to read a bunch of numbers with some letters. The letters tell you what you have and what it came out of and the numbers tell you when it was built and what car VIN it belongs to.
