  • Finally got the hood open

    Well its been almost a week but I got the hood open dosen't look bad but dosen't look good there's a frost plug blown out. Could anyone tell me where the serial number is on the block and its a 6 cylinder

    I took a screen grab of your third photograph and added a red circle where the serial number is located: The driver's side of the block, at the front, on a flat, machined pad, just below the bottom of the cylinder head. The numbers will be stamped (recessed).

        James,
        After looking over your pictures, what year and model are you working on? Curious as I own a couple of 64s with the OHV Six. Hope all works out well.
        Thanks,
        Rick

          Based on the alternator, it is either a 63 or 64. I could not read the body tag on the right of the firewall, but therein lies the tale of the year.

                Congratulations on your first achievement. Does it turn over? If it were mine, I would check compression before you spent too much on the engine. If it turns over, lube the cylinders via spark plug holes and see if its worth trying to start. Good luck and keep us posted.

                              Thanks 2R5 but how do you know its a rare one Gary was saying it's one of 1580 made how did you get 702 I've been look for all that information and I can't find it anywhere ?I'm assuming the 1580 came from the serial number on the door because it's C101580 and I really appreciate all your information rebuilding this car is going to be a great experience and all the information I'm getting is very impressive from you and everyone else I'm so glad I joined this site everyone has been so helpful thanks again
