My wife is originally from Patchogue, NY. When I moved to LI in 1981, I remember the Patchogue Chevy dealer on Montauk hwy, was I believe Nessenger.

Based on the VIN on the block, that car was produced at the beginning of August '63 (very late production) at the Tarrytown plant (should have a T in the VIN) and it makes sense based on the 4th week of July body built date on the cowl tag. Nice car. It's hard to find real ones.

Verne, the ID number is as you mentioned; 31847T319211.
Can you believe how they made the T on the pad? They used two &quot;1's&quot;, the top of the T is a 1.

That is Wild, I have never seen that before.

This is such a cool car. Like Vern said, very difficult to find a real one.

Tim,
Prior to the production of your car, Tarrytown either lost or broke the &quot;T&quot;. Many original blocks and 4-spds I've seen had no &quot;T&quot; at all with the VIN stamp. They also broke or lost the normal sized &quot;1&quot;s and used larger ones. They figured out a way to &quot;fix&quot; those problems by the time your late car was produced. All of these variations are a blessing for these cars, because there is no one standard that applies to all of them. (as with Corvettes) That makes it harder to counterfeit one correctly. A lot of people might look at that engine pad and think Ray Charles stamped it, but it's REAL.
Tarrytown also had the habit (the worker did anyway) of stamping the trans VIN on the tail housing rather than the side of the main case.

Verne, thank you for the valuable information. I didn't know that, I only knew the stamp was quite messy from the plant.

The old 409 will be at Mecum Dallas in September. It's a great car with the original motor, transmission and 4.56 rear.
