Re:302-4V Code J

As was explained in your posting of the VIN location, there are NO 302-2v cars build in 68, however the '68 289 and 302 blocks are virtually identical. And when they ran out of 289 blocks but still needed to fill "C" code engines, they used the 302 blocks with 289 heads and intake manifolds (2 barrels). So your block could be a 302 and have a "C" code VIN # but it is really no different than my 289 except for the stamped 302.

But I do have to add that it makes a great conversation item because of the 302 versus 289 block used to fill the "C" codes.
