I have a 66 #961 4bolt block cast E-5-6 with deck stamp of T0630EG no vin or plant stamp. I have looked the block over top to bottom and see no vin stamped anywhere. I know Vin's werent stamped on blocks till 68 on canadian cars but the only 396 offered in canadian cars was a 360HP version. The block has never been line honed to add the 4bolt caps and it hasnt been decked, the assembly date is very clear. The person I got it from has had it 15 years or more and bought it from a drag racer because it was a 66 block. The person I bought it from didnt even know it was a 375HP block or that it didnt have a VIN#, he just told me it was a 1966 4bolt block that he bought years ago for his 66SS (it has a 402 in it) and he was considering selling it. Was this just a mistake not stamping vin of car ?????? A friend seems to think it was never installed in a car thats why it wasnt stamped with a VIN. Just looking for your ideas or if someone else has seen something familiar.
