Sometime back, I looked at a 68 camaro which had the correct dated engine, with the correct prefix and suffix, but did not have a vin on the block pad. I know that later years put the vin on the oil filter boss, but shouldn't this 1968engine have the vin on the pad? And if it were a replacement engine shouldn't the code be different?
The stamping sure appeared to be original, not restamped, no evidence of decking, etc. but I don't understand the absence of the vin.

Any ideas? Did all COPOS get the vin stamp? And wouldn't dealer installed engines have a different code?

i beleive that the number on the block has the last six digits of the vin in it. Digits 1-3 indicate engine type and digits 4-9 are the last six digits of the vin number.
