67 Chevelle owner

Hi: I am a 67 Chevelle owner and have a non stock Chevy SB motor. Can anyone decipher the code found on the passenger side front of the block? The code is K0806CKR. I think it's a 350. There is also a code 722100581 above the first code. Thanks so much.

To get anymore specific, you need the casting number off the back of the block, on the left side and the casting date on the right rear.

The '77 engine was used in all platforms, A, B, F and X, so determining it's exact source would depend on the partial vin.

Doubtful it matters after all these years, as the internals and heads could be from anything. Pull a valve cover and get the casting number and date on the head and that may shed some light on if it is still original.

Thanks

I need a year for the engine only to satisfy a requirement for acquiring Collector Plate status. I've had other threads tell me it's a 69 block, 72 block, 77 block. I will check the rear of the engine for the number.

In MN, anything over 20 years old can be registered in a collector program. Either year you use should easily qualify in most states.

the #s K0806CKR decode as K= St Catharines assy plant, 0806= Aug 06 and the CKR as 1977 350 Nova auto trans 170 hp 4 barrel, there is also another CKR code that says 1973 350 Nova California, if you are looking for it to be at least 20 years old either one will certainly fall in that category
