Default 69 vert question

I have a 69 ss convertible. The original block was cracked and put away somewhere. Probably gone. If i wanted to search for the block to that car what would i use? the vin on the car has some of the numbers on the block? Id like to start by a simple google search.

The block would have been stamped '19LNNNNNN', where 'LNNNNNN' is the last 7 digits of the car's VIN (one letter and 6 numbers). If the car was made in Canada, there would be 7 numbers, no letter.

If you post, pm or email me the VIN you are looking for I can check my list. I also list orphaned parts and can see if it is in my list. If you wouldn't mind I'd like to add your chevelle trim tag info to my list as well. good luck with your search. take care Andy

not sure what to paint the car now?with that code 76 daytona yellow trim tag.i see only one color paint that the car should be painted and thats daytona yellow.that color is not seen on a lot of 69 SS cars let alone on a convertible.when was the last time you seen a daytona yellow 69 SS convertible chevelle?plus there are only two colors specific to the 69 SS chevelle 72 hugger orange and 76 daytona yellow.making your car pretty rare for sure.
now if it was me i would restore the car back to original if possible.just because it is a daytona yellow car.it is your car and you can restore it any way you so chose.love your convertible and love to see more pics.

DAYTONA YELLOW! This truly is a case where any other color on that car will hurt its value, you have a gem there! What a color combo and original too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good Luck with it!

The frame and motor has been completed and put together. I started her up. sounds good. The body has been in a shop for about 10 months now. Looks like he finally soda blasted it a couple days ago. Maybe thats a sign things are moving forward.

Now, paint. I dont know dude. Daytona yellow.. haha.. i need a vote on this one.
