Default Looking to Reunite T0610JD L78 Motor with 1969 Chevelle SS 396

I have a good running and ready to drop-in 396 L78 motor that I'd like to try and reunite with the Chevelle that it was originally born with at the Baltimore plant. The motor has a casting date of D8-9 and the 840 heads are dated C-12-9 and C-13-9. A my good friend Dan put it, it "can't get much better than that" and I would agree.

The numbers stamped in the deck are T0610JD 19B394809

In case the car's owner decides to search his entire VIN rather than just the last six digits, I'll post the possible VIN numbers here:

136379B349809 if it's a coupe,
136679B349809 if it's a convertible,
134279B349809 if it's a post sedan, and
134809B349809 if it's an el Camino.

I noticed that the motor is already listed on the following threads dating back to 2013:

http://chevellestuff.net/orphaned/or..._paperwork.htm

http://www.chevelles.com/forums/15-t...19b394809.html

If you own the Chevelle that this motor was born with, please send me a PM and we'll do our best to reunite the car with it's motor.

Here is an old and new photo of the stamping.

Best to add the 300 Deluxe Hardtop VIN to make it complete:-)
