    Wouldn't this date code be for a 69 car?

    Hey Aussie I am pretty sure you are right it would be a 69 Model year motor. Not 70

    Based on the info stamped on the block, it appears to come out of a California build. E-Body? Don't recall what other body styles came out of California.

    3/24: Price lowered to $675 obo...

    For those requiring delivery out of state. Fastenal rates are $150-$200 given the engine has to be placed on a pallet for transport. Right now, the block is strapped down to a pallet and covered.

    January 1969 is kind of early, but I had a 1970 Cuda built in September 1969. Often a new model year is available in the fall of the previous year.

    Edit: on another site I found that E-body production began on 8-18-69, at the LA plant, fyi.
