radiator

Check Nova Resource for sure if you can tell by the VIN and Cowl tag they will know. The six didn't use a radiator spacer and the V-8's did. All that is easy to change though. Using the cowl and VIN is the only way to be sure.

Gas Line

Acman,

I believe the V8 gas line ran in the outside passenger side fender well (behind the wheel) and entered the engine compartment near the battery tray. The 6 cylinder entered the engine compartment next to the brake line on the passenger side.

Yeah, what Mike is talking about, if you look closely under your battery tray if the car is a 6 cylinder you will see a plastic plug where the V-8 fuel line would have been ran through at the factory if it were a V-8 car. I know when I converted my 65 from 6 to 8, I ran my fuel line through there. Brett.

In the VIN a I6 was 437 a V8 was 447,I think.
In 1964, there was no way to tell from the VIN or cowl tag whether a Chevy II was a V/8 or six. 447 was a Super Sport and could be a V/8 or six. 437 was a Sport Coupe, again either a V/8 or six.
