Hi Guys,

Just got done reading all of the recent threads about decoding and it brought to mind I wanted to post a while ago a thread on my engine pad. My pad reads T03I6EG / G126140. What throws me a little is the I for the engine and especially the G for the vin. The cast on the block is 3855962 and it has the spec. hi pref. also on the rear flange.

Thanks.

The I (upper case i) was used used interchangablly with the 1 (one) so its not uncommon, actually very common as a matter of fact.

G is the Framingham, MASS assembly plant code and 126140 should be the same as the last 6 in you dash VIN to be the original engine.:thumbsup:

Frank,

T=Tonowanda

EG=396-375 manual trans

G=Framingham, Mass. assembly plant
The remaining numbers should match the VIN

I didn't mean to repeat what was already posted. I was writing the answer and didn't know they had already posted. Guess I was a little slow.

Hi Guys,

Well I thought the I was used inplace of a 1. So the G means Framingham? Interesting. I have an Atlanta car matched up with a Framingham motor. Well at least I resolved my question.

Thanks Guys!

Hi Mike,

Very true. I would have no problem parting with it, but the story I got was this motor was pulled from a 66 SS that was totaled in 67. So I would guess the car has unfortunately been long gone.

Hi Tom,

Well it is good to know that it is still valuable and desirable to some people. Given tha fact that it is a EG code and don't appear to be a restamp, it would take 1 heck of an offer to get me to part with it. And I don't think that kinda offer is out there other than someone that has the correct car for that motor.
