1968 Chevelle 375hp 396 engine - looking for original body

Trying to find the owner of this 1968 Chevelle SS to reunite the engine with the car - I have a 1968 375hp 396 engine code EG, VIN # 18Z130843. If you have this car, please reach out to me. I prefer joining the two back as one vs selling the engine to just anybody. Thanks

You should also post this over in the "Lost and Found" forum.You may get more traffic with people looking for their old car or old engine over there.

By listing the entire VIN it should show up in a future web search, if the current owner were to run it... 136388Z130843

Bruce wouldn't the VIN for a 68 Chevelle SS start with "138" ?

There would be three possible VINs, all starting with 138. A coupe, convertible, or an El Camino.
