Which 396 did it have?

I'm new to this numbers stuff. Is there any way of telling which 396 (325 or 360) came in my car originally?

This info would be on the builtsheet or POP if you have any of the cars original documentation. If your car has its factory installed 396 you can check the suffex code and vin #'s on the engine pad.

Yeah, a build sheet or the Protect-O-Plate would have the engine/code on it/them. Has the original interior been taken out? Everything still there? Try looking for a build sheet (if you don't have one).

Re: Which 396 did it have?

Unless it's a Fremont, CA-built Chevelle it won't have a conventional 'build sheet' as one thinks of a 69-72 style build sheet. You'd need to find a CHASSIS BROADCAST COPY sheet. This will have the engine suffix code on the third line of the sheet such as EH on this partial example from the Reference CD. Finding a CHASSIS BROADCAST COPY sheet is rather rare though - usually glued to the inner fender and destroyed over time.

That is right, Dale. No build sheet, but the Chassis Broadcast Sheet copy. I had a brain fart.

Re: Which 396 did it have?

I'm not sure "build sheet" or "buildsheet" is the proper name for the 69-72 paperwork we normally call a build sheet but I think the term is pretty universally accepted. Someone on here in a thread called it something like a "broadcast sheet" since ther are multiple copies that are broadcast to several sub assembly stations and often resulting in more than one copy being found in a car. Kind of like a "trim tag" or "firewall tag" is really a Fisher Body Number Plate.
