1971 3963512 engine block from Monte Carlo 166032

Recommended Posts

Engine block from 1971 SS Monte Carlo 166032.  Block has been line bored.  I purchased to use in a Corvette restoration.  Going in a different direction with the Corvette.  I thought I would try and get the engine back to a Monte Carlo where it truly belongs.

Thanks In Advance

My intent was to try and get the engine back to the original car.  I found the block in Roswell New Mexico.  That is all I know.

You found it in Roswell...... Maybe check with some ET's  I wonder if there is a UFO missing some power out there somewhere.

That block isn't from a Monte Carlo. The S in the partial VIN is for the St. Louis assembly plant.  No Montes were assembled in St. Louis, but Corvettes were.  There was also a plant there that built Impalas and Caprices.
