C6 ID off partial VIN stamp, and what to do.....August 4 2012 at 1:41 AM
Have a C6 with a cast iron tailshaft. Partial VIN 9U128271. '69 Louisville build is all I can tell. I think this is from some truck, not sure...
Running, but weak, pulled out of the car, which is back to bare metal for rebuild.
Putting in a stroked 390 w/428CJ heads, 428PI manifold, and 428CJ exh manifolds, cam to be determined but looking for "a bit more" than mild, but not wild.
Issue is, I have a full alloy (or aluminum, not sure what they used for the one piece C6's) R servo unit, but have seen indications the cast tailshaft C6's are "more durable".
So, is it worth looking into rebuilding this over the rebuilt one I have? Sell the one piece and use the proceeds to re-build the 9U?
