We've discussed this before, but it's been awhile. Fisher Body built the bodies and attached the cowl tags. The bodies were then transferred to Chevrolet for final assembly. Most SS coupes got the 118 designation because Chevrolet didn't supply Fisher any information about the engine that was to be installed. The VIN tag on the door frame overrides the cowl tag info - and often doesn't match. Since this car was a 6-cylinder, its VIN should start with 117.it has 118 on the cowl tag, wouldn't that be a 327 ? but it has a 6 cyl engine sitting in it. it's going to take alot of work an parts to raise that from the dead.
