    WP is premium class R/T is WS (special) G is usually 318 but could be 383 prior to 70's. If the 6th is a 2, it should be a 72. No R/T in 72.

    5th is Engine

    K is 360 in mid/late 70's

    No X engine size that I am aware of.

    U is a late 440, L is an early.

    Is this a charger?

    Pre- 66 shouldn't have W as first character and I don't think had any letters, but my pre-66 is not good.

    If it's a `66, it's a Coronet 500.

    It is a 66 red on red I still can't make out the engine code the guy got it from said it had a HEMI. This car was a uncles and he doesn't know much about it there is no engine or trans it was a four speed.

    OK, what you have is actually a `67 Coronet 500 Equipped with a 383 4bbl backed by a console shifted 4 spd.(kool). Came with 14" police steelies w/ black sidewalls and a 3.23 sure grip, bright red with a black vinyl top and premium interior. AM radio fender mounted turn signals and a tach. The scheduled production date is a bit strange, B08 is Nov. 08 of `66, but I don't know what the extra 0 meens(reads B080)? Somebody painted it blue at some point. This is the best I could do with G.G.'s White books.

    It means the 0 is misstamped one place to the left. The SO should start with 08

    BTW, that's not the VIN. The VIN should be on a plate rivited to the front driver's side door frame. (you did check the VIN against the title didn't you???)

    Thanks for all the helpful facts title is 66 and everything matches up.any ideas on keeping it original or just go with the 440 I have 73 motorhome.? How do go about a restore without any powerplant? If anyone has a 66/67 383 block I may be in the market for one. Thanks again.

    They made 766 of them, so I would consider that rare enough, I would definitely restore the body and interior faithfully and it shouldn't be to difficult to find a 383 with the correct date code.
