ID make & Model of donor car in a Street Rd

The car is a backyard Build, which I am making into a transmorfing into some subclass of a woody. I am trying to figure out what year and make vehicle it came out of, I need Motor mounts and some other Parts.

So far I have identified the block a 230 1965 Built in Flint Michigan Dec 7 1964. This conflicts with the info the machinist gave me that the head was a 250, so maybe someone changed the head out to something different? At least that is what the machinist told me who rebuilt it and re-ground the cam, What he didn't do is put the lump ports in which i am thinking of having done now.

Always looking to add more HP/Torque. It has a 2 speed powerglide (completely rebuilt) in it. I has all new rings, pistons, valves, pushrods, and crankshaft. cylinders bored out .030 over,.010 off the block and the head was angled but I don't recall what degree. It has an Offenheimer 4BBL intake with Stovebolt headers. I am running what I believe to be a 600(?) edelbrock, to me it is mounted sideways with the edelbrock tag facing the valve cover. The story goes It was done this way as there was not enough clearance for the Linkage on the side f the carburetor. I have a 6” lift tunnel for it, will see what that does in the spring.

My future issue to resolve after I fing out what this came out of is: on takeoff although it pulls right off the line, it seems like there should be some tire burning, at least chirping and more torque (machinist was guessing I would have about) .85-.9 Hp for every CC, which would put me about 215 HP.

For the Block:
By the distributor is the # F1207FA

Above the starter on the block is the # CON2 on 1 tag and L34 on the other

on the head are the#'s 4886X, in one spot and 4883 15 in another.

It has a silver Chevrolet tag on the body with the # B56J168735, I have pictures if it helps of the steering wheel and center console, along with the pics of the #'s.

Any Idea’s you have on ID ing the model car this come out of would be appreciated.

What is the logo in the centre of the steering column?....Lots like a mid 60s GM to me.

230 and 250 Chevy six were basically the same engine

ID Donor car

Ponco62,

Here is the steering cap and more console pictures, i was hoping the console would give it away, someone would recognize it.

I think we figured at least the block was made 12/7/64, i have gotten conflicting infor on the head, the Block casting # shows is was done as a 230, but my machist said it was a 250 and rebuilt it as such, Which all doesn't really matter I need to figure out what model (s) of car it was in so I can narrow down the options to get replacement motor mounts.

thanks for your input!

Cheers!

I am guessing 64-65 Chev Impala....Seeing as the engine checks out as a 65, I would be leaning that way

Motor Mounts

In taking Pictures of the Motor Mount (with my glasses on-should wear these more!) there is a part number on the rubber 37-2404 - some symbol-1-4, Will will search this.

I have attched pictures still maybe someone identify it.

ID Donor car

I will take it back down now that i at least have a year to go by- I went before but didn't know if we were looking for 60's or 70's, I will try an impala first, and a partial part #.

Thanks Again, go through this again when i need brake shoes.

I think you're trying to buy the cart before the horse.
The motor mounts are the least of your worries. Looking at the rest of your pics I wonder how you plan on getting that death-trap licensed for the road.
JMHO

I think you are right Randy......Either way, I think the 6cyl motor mounts would be the same

console looks like impala mid 60's
tiller, also, but both could be chevelle parts,,
can't tell by the pic if the rear end has 2 upper links or one..
if brakes are 9x2 drums(rear) good chance it's a body parts, 11" think full sized,, looks like someone had a donor car, and used the rear crossmember for the rear end mounts, etc

I think so Poncho.. I don't think they made a lot of different mounts back then for the 6cyl motors..

I was holding a console just like that one this past Sat.. Talking about installing a 3'' Tach in it.. For my friends 66 Chevelle..

I am looking at some restoration sites for Impala & Chevelle, thanks guys! I have looked at the impala, but the shape of the console isn't quite right and the steering wheel is off- On to the Chevelles~!
