Question regarding C1 Corvette VIN#'s and Engine codes
A friend of mine is considering buying a 1961 Corvette without an engine... He said he can put any 1961 283cu motor in it... I have a 1959 Corvette and I had thought I had read in my restoration guide (I misplaced it) that starting in 1960 Chevrolet coded the engine to the body in Corvettes... Can anyone clarify this question or refer me to who can??? Thanks in advance so very much...
