Hi guys, I'm new to the site and to classic trucks. I just bought a 1966 Chevy Short Bed C10 as a project to me and my boys (16 & 11). Its going to need some work and lots of $$$$. I need help decoding the engine number. From the research I have done based off of my Vin number C144 6Z171490, I know my engine is suppose to be a V8 and my truck is from Fremont Ca and was 71,490 off of the line. I need help to determine if the engine is original, the number off of my engine block is V0605DJ. Can anyone tell me anything about these numbers? I appreciate any and all of your help.
