    This engine is out of my 72 duster. But if i'm correct the vin on the block doesn't match my car vin. Just wanting someone to verify my thoughts. Thank you.
    Car vin 2B334715.

    That is the engines serial number, it is not to be confused with the partial VIN.

    Look on the block under the rear spark plug for another machined pad with more numbers.

    It is from a 1970 model year car then. I do not have anything on file super close to it, but I would suspect it came from an E-body.

      That's now most likely been turned into a 6pk or Hemi car. I'd love to have a /6 E-Body as you seldom see them anymore...

        Yea. I figured it was a 70. I have it pulled out because I am building a 340 for my duster now.

        I hear that. Close to 20 years ago, a 1970 Challenger Coupe was for sale, originally a Panther Pink /6 3-speed stick car. It had been cloned into a T/A.

        I had the money & the price was right, considering I could sell off the clone parts.

        But.....

        The seller had scrapped the engine, trans, associated parts & flat hood.

        So with that news, no deal from this kid.

        I read this post with interest, I'm one of those that own a SL6 '70 Dodge Challenger, I purchased it from a Dodge dealership, as a trade-in w/ 40K miles on it in 1973. Used it as a daily driver and go to work car up until about 2005 culminating with 562K miles on it now. 3 engines, 2 trans. And 2 rear ends. The last engine I bought from the same dealership I originally bought the car. A '77 model engine, they found it in the mid-west, in a warehouse it was slated for a military vehicle, never had been in a car, this was in 1998. Go-Mango exterior color ( always has been ), 904 (auto) and 8 3/4, 742 case, 3.23 gear set. Black SE interior, rallye wheels. Not one single major accident since I've owned it. It's still a beautiful car, looks as good now as when I drove it off their lot, and I still own it.
        Thanks, Al

          image.png Thanks for the kudo's Tduff01, from the length of time I've hung on to this car, you'd think I like it some how. No, she's actually part of the family now, SL6 and all. Let me, if I may, give you a few highlights. Built in LA on the first day of production, #113 off of the assembly line. All of the body panels outside of the hood, which is still OEM, (a $55. Purchase) are all OEM to the car. As for mechanical changes, Mopar elect. Ign. (Orange box), HO Accel coil, Super Six set-up, 2 barrel Carter, K&N open element air cleaner, Hooker headers 3 into 1, real dual 2.25" aluminized exhaust w/ "H" pipe, 2 glasspacks, 2 chrome tips. 904 trans. W/ B&M shift improver and Quicksilver shifter. Drum brakes all around, factory 5 speaker stereo system, tuff wheel, SE outside and interior trim. No power anything. As for the hood engine call outs say "225 MAGNUM" I made them up, when hood is up SL6 when hood is down SL6. Thanks again, Al

            That awesome. I love it. Id drive that all the time.! I wish mine was like that. With history and everything right. But mine was a jumbled mess that I'm sure a few different people did not so great work to it. Not the vin matching motor so it was changed at some point. A lot of thing not correct on it. Missing a lot of the correct stuff and it was nothing special even from the factory. So Im in the process of buildING the 340 car I always wanted. Unless I find a decent h code car to rebuild and put my 340 in but that's a long shot trying to find a decently priced good H code project. Because I would love to have an h code car and have my slant six car also. You just don't see a whole lot of 225 slants running around.

            I fully understand Tduff01, if we all had kept our early cars we had, we would all have tons of individual vehicle history. I just decided after I purchased it, it was to be a keeper. My very first Mopar I bought was a 1964 Polara, red/red, bucket seat car, 383, auto. Damned I loved that car, I should have kept it. I was not going to repeat that again, so I kept the Challenger. I've owned 2 "H" code cars, '70 340 Duster, FC7, black bucket interior, 4-gear car and a '71 340 Duster, EV2, black bucket interior, auto., both front disc brakes. Maybe I should have kept one of them, don't know. Have fun with what you have, driving and working on it. Remember our cars are never ever really done. Thanks, Al

            Yea. Thats why I'm just going to enjoy mine and this is my first old mopar. I got it when i was 18. So i didnt know what to look for on numbers or history. I was just happy to have an old nopar. Now im 25 and been involed with mopars since getting mine and learning everything i can. But im just going to do what I want with mine and enjoy every minute of it.

            I bought the Challenger when I was 25 or 26, so yes, we have a lot of history together. But not my first new car, before the Dodge was my '64 Polara and after that a '66 satellite, 383, 4-gear car and a '68 Coronet 500 w/ 318 then the Challenger. So enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. I have to admit I've slowed down some not as many shows, not as many cruises, not as many cars. One car right now will do me just fine and I believe that SL6 Dodge reflects my position in life. I just turned 70 and as long as I keep standing up I'll keep fooling around with my old Mopars. Good luck to you, you're just starting out. Thanks, Al

              I had a question in regards to engine numbers too. I have a slant six I'm going to build up that was pulled from a 67 dart...not sure if it's the original engine. Casting numbers are:
              2463430
              which says it is from 66 which could make sense. The pad stamp near the alternator reads:
              CC 225 06 15
              wondering if its been rebuilt and that is a new stamp - it has a partial 'independent cross' logo next to it too?
              And the head on it is painted a aqua blue - not the surf blue of the seventies but more of a green blue.

              I have an engine here in Australia with similar numbers:

              Sky Blue, 3 welsh plug engine block with casting number: 2463430-26
              No. stamped under n1 spark plug: CC 225 05 30

              There is also a number stamped on the front of the engine casting VE8 - 0865 G2. According to the Chrysler Valiant VE Series Service Manual the VE8 denotes high performance (160hp) engine with Automatic. Nothing noted about the 0865 G2 suffix

              I'd like to know its origin.

              The VE80865G2 should be the engine number that shows on the rego papers for the car (assuming this engine is in a car). As far as I know, the VE slants were cast in Adelaide Australia.
