Your cowl tag should have a build date on it. Look for a 3 digit/letter combination that look like; 01D or 11E, etc. (two numbers with a letter)

The first numbers are the month and the letter is the week of that month. A for first week, B for second, E for fifth week, etc.

1963 Impala 283 * 1966 Impala 327 * 1966 Chevelle SS 409 *
1969 Malibu 307 * 1969 C-10 Stepside 350 * 1971 C-20 fleetside 6 cyl * 1972 Malibu 307
