Found this in the 68 Charger, trying to figure out what trans and ratio it originally came with, sort of hard since its weathered right where the answer would be any guesses?

502

707 = engine assembly code = 383-2bbl
543= transmission assembly code
225 = rear axle assembly code

Check your 400 series code on the second line of the BS. I'm guessing you'll find code 401 = 2.76 gears.

I am embarrassed to admit, I bought this car and it has a 318 in it, I registered it and never never never ONCE thought about taking a hard look at the VIN. I had no idea it was a 383 car


I am sooo happy right now

Vin is Xp29G8B338xxx

That was the one that he had when his brother was alive, he bought it back and its not going anywhere

The one I have, he bought to make money, which is ok I use to have a 68 383 2bll 4 Speed (yup rare about 250 were made) and I sold it about 18 years ago because rent was due one month and I didn't have money so the Charger went


So its cool to me this one is a 383 car, I have odd sentiments

It is the BEST looking year for a Charger (Design or styling wise) which is also cool, the big block factor makes it even better. W1 is white? might be cool also
